Hello! I haven’t been feeling so well lately – sore throat, runny nose, fever … 🤒 🤒 You name it, I probably got it! But I woke up feeling slightly a little better today and I thought it would do me some good to go out of the house. It’s still really cold outside, but I’ve been stuck at home and I feel like it’s getting the best of me.
When the Husband got home from work, I thought it would be a good idea to check out the new Japanese / Manga tea shop, Manga-T, in Metz, France. It’s amazing to see how Metz is changing. 8 years ago, I never would have thought that a manga tea shop would open in Metz! But it did. 😺 😺
I thought it would be quiet and calm as it was a Sunday afternoon, but boy was I wrong. The place was packed and we could not even get a table to sit on. I later found out that there was a manga event going on actually, hence the fully-packed place.
When you go pass the dining tables and into the back room, you will find on one side the bar counter and on the other side you can find a bunch of Japanese goodies for sale. There are candies, sweets, chips, but also decors, utensils, and stationery!
Taiyaki is a Japanese waffle-type dessert. It is typically filled with a sweet red bean paste, but we’re not fans so we got one with blueberries. It was alright.
I am a big fan of Bubble Tea, specifically Taro Bubble Tea. First, Bubble Tea is a drink originated from Taiwan and is made with tea or milk teas and tapioca pearls. According to Wikipedia, Taro is a plant used as a vegetable. It is poisonous when it is raw, but is safe to eat if it’s cooked.
Back when I was living in the Philippines, I used to always order a Taro Ice drink from Quickly. Ahhh, what I would give to have one now.
Anyways, what did I think of Manga-T ‘s Taro Bubble Tea? It was horrible. I hate to be harsh but it was even disgusting. 🤢 🤢 Perhaps, I’ll try something fruity the next time. I might have better chances with that.
