I was craving some fresh fruit bubble tea today...and I decided to go to this one cuz the one next door had a longer line.
I saw that FRESH HONEYDEW JUICE SLUSH was one of the specials so I ordered that with pearls. When I took a sip of it in the car, it was...well, the flavour instantly reminded me of the time I went to some place and asked for honeydew and they gave me some crappy powder honeydew bbt.
The "fresh" part was probably throwing in a few pieces of honeydew, and then adding in powder and sugar to make it taste like something. First, it wasn't a slush at all...it was a thick juice. When | went back to get an adjustment, the guy just tossed it in the blender and gave it back to me, all the while returning my bitter glare.
I asked the girl behind the counter whether this was really fresh fruit, and she said yes. I asked if it was ALL fresh fruit and she finally admitted that they put a "little bit" of powder in. I then asked if I could order it without the powder and she said "no, because that's how we make it."
I guess that's business, but I learned my lesson about the kind of business this bubble tea runs.
I miss the people that used to work here. That used to give me real honeydew juice with pearls. But it's really hard to find a good bubble tea place nowadays.
