Street Pearl Shakes/Mobile Bubble Tea

Bubble Tea or Pearl Shake is a very popular drink nowadays. It is usually naturally or artificially flavored teas or milkshakes with chewy tapioca pearls.This is perfect for the now starting Summer here in the Philippines.
Usually, you can find these shakes being sold in malls and kiosks but they are a little pricey. Well, someone will always find a way to make this more available and affordable to the public. And so the Mobile Bubble Tea is born. This vendor sells the pearl shakes in four flavors: Chocolate, Rocky Road, Cappuccino and Buco-Pandan
When you buy an order. The vendor will get a plastic cup and put around 2 tbsp of tapioca pearls. Then he will fill the cup with the flavor of the shake that you chose. In the picture, the vendor is filling the cup with Buco-Pandan flavored shake. This cup costs P10.00 [$0.22].
