Our new favourite destination for bubble tea

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa|Recipes and Food

Time to strike another thing off our summer bucket list!

Have you tried bubble tea? We’ve made our own and have been regular patrons of Bubblicity on Somerset for the past few years. Unfortunately the last few visits were nothing to write home about, and I was open to finding a new source for this delicious stuff. My friend Don from foodieprints suggested My Sweet Tea (and I trust his recommendations!) and so that’s where we went last night to recharge after a long day spent at Calypso.

And I’m glad we did… even though I’ve been cutting sugar from my diet like crazy this past month. :)

Bubble tea! Thanks for the recommendation @foodieprints!

Mark and the girls ordered the honeydew bubble latte with pearls and I tried the mango for a change. The first slurp was telling. My Sweet Tea serves up a creamier concoction than we ever had at Bubblicity and there was no powdery aftertaste either. Mark thought the pearls were slightly undercooked, but I didn’t mind. They were chewier than normal but they actually had flavour for a change… and I think that made more of an impression on me. :)

It was a lovely sweet treat, one that is surprising filling too. Next time I might just order a small, or eat a smaller dinner beforehand!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
