Bubble Tea in Charleston

Bubble Tea in Charleston

That's right folks, there's bubble tea at Pho Vinh Long in South Charleston Tapioca balls in iced tea with milk. Yum.

I'll have one after I finish my Salt-Plum and Soda water. More on that later. It's both good and 'interesting.'

[UPDATE] Krista in the comments is right. Salt-Plum with Soda water is a strange and curious cocktail. I couldn't tell if I liked or didn't like the salty hit you got with the sweet of the plum...might be worth another try.

The Honeydew Bubble tea, in all it's neon-green glory, was stupendously sweet and delicious. Since the folks at Pho Vinh Long serve a semi-slushy mix, some of the tapioca balls ended up freezing before I was done with the tea. A warmer day and a togo tea would have solved that problem.

Bubble Tea was yummy yummy good! The tapioca balls really added a fun treat during the drink.
As for the Salt Plum, it was interesting.....good but interesting, very hard to explain. You just have to try it. I said to D while we were there that I bet the drink would be awesome with Citrus Vodka. :)
