TARO-FIC COCO BBT
Creative Bubble Tea Recipe
WELCOME TO A BBT RECIPE CREATED IN CONJUNCTION WITH DEREK LAU!
“Normally I aint a fan of taro, but I can’t believe how good this taro is. It just works! It reminds me of a Malaysian drink called ‘Burbur cha cha’. If you haven’t had it- well sucks to be you. It’s taro-y, coconut-y, balls-y. It's taro-fic! Enjoy 😉”
