Peanut Milk Tea

9 Jul

I tried a peanut milk tea, just to have a change and because i was curious. Sometimes i really feel like i shouldn’t be curious at all. It had a bad taste coming out of the tea, the milk is not even fresh milk but powder milk, and it has a bland taste of peanuts. I won’t try again.

Taiwanese dessert: Douhua 豆花

25 Sep

Some Taiwanese friends shew us the way to try a typical dessert. I was quite scared actually with my past experiences with Taiwanese desserts, but this one was ok. This is called Douhua, it’s a soup with some kind of paste which is actually the same thing as tofu but less solid (that’s what i understood). The flavors are mainly with beans (red beans, green beans, tapioca, peanuts…). You can ask for/without ice.

It’s jelly-like and it’s a soup again, but the flavors were a little better, and even if it’s still quite sweet, it’s better than the desserts i’ve tried so far. I might eat it again once or twice in the year.
