Looks like the boba tea craze is still here in Malaysia, and it looks like this epidemic isn’t slowing down any time soon.
And now, there’s a new boba trend that’s a little bit worrying and we fear that it’ll make its way to Malaysia – boba tea rice.
Recently, photos of someone making boba tea rice went viral on Twitter and it sparked an outrage among netizens.
Many questioned why the need to create such thing (including us) and others just cringed and wished they could unsee the image.
Apparently this appalling dish was made by a bunch of curious Japanese journalist for a website called soranews24.com
The website says you can make rice with tapioca bubble tea and “it’s surprisingly tasty”.
You must be wondering what drove them to even think of creating this abomination.
While they were drinking boba tea one of them reportedly asked: “Here in Japan, we often eat a dish called ochazuke
, which is rice with green tea, so shouldn’t we also be able to make rice with tapioca tea?”
“Not bad at all. Rice and tea really do seem destined to go well with each other, and their flavors blended effortlessly together here.”
“As a matter of fact, they’re so compatible that the stronger flavor here remains that of the rice itself, though each and every tapioca bubble is a sweet surprise with an interesting texture change.”
