I don’t know if there’s a single word to describe my affinity towards coffee. There used to be a time when no one would dare speak to me before my first cup of java. But that changed once I got married as hubby dear wouldn’t care less for coffee and I’m not very enthused to brew coffee just for me so its tea for us in the mornings and its one thing that we enjoy together right after we wake up. I quench my thirst for coffee in the evenings and its my alone time after a day’s work and I also jump with my head first if I get an invitation to meet my friends at our favorite coffee shop. I’ve always preferred my coffee hot and when it comes to my coffee I’m very particular about how I want it brewed so being this picky I tend not to deviate into any big flavor splash. Last month we had a big heat wave and I was desperate for my caffeine splurge though I couldn’t think of hot drink so I hesitantly tried iced coffee and I liked it. I may not be a big follower of iced coffee but I’m not against it either.

I’ve tasted bubble iced tea in one of the Asian tea shops and I loved it. The iced tea has a very flavorful tea with cooked tapioca pearls. When I was browsing for a different kind of coffee variations to try I was piqued by this recipe from bingcookingsecrets and I loved it. It’s a Vietnamese recipe and doesn’t take much time to make this drink. It’s best on warm days and a wonderful variation to your regular caffeine fix.

  9. This is such a cute coffee presentation! I have never heard of this. Thankfully me and my husband are both big time coffee lovers. Would love to try this…Will make a fun drink in the evening.

  10. My husband is the coffee aficionado in the house and I could care less for it, even though I enjoy a very occasional mocha latte or frappacino. Bubble coffee sounds very interesting. Are those tapioca pearls different from Indian sabudhana? They look much bigger and colorful too.
    Lovely clicks, I especially like the first one with the bokeh in the background — very pretty.

  11. Welcome Back Jayanthi :). I have had this when we lived in China but in different types of flavored teas.It was actually the black pearls that are quite popular there. I wish I had got back a pack of these . Really miss this after seeing your post. The coffee sounds like a really cool way to start the day 🙂
