See the Blue Tea Everyone's Talking About Magically Transform This Drink Into a Rainbow
Meet Phong Trinh, one of the four ultrahip owners of West Hollywood's hottest tea bar, Pearl's Finest Teas. Amidst the troves of ultracool sneaker shops enters the next 'gram-worthy (and healthy) boba tea spot where I recently discovered a liquid treat that tastes as good as it looks. Upon entering Pearl's Finest Teas, you will find yourself drawn to the hot pink palm tree leaf wallpaper, sitting at the bar, and sipping a delicious concoction while listening to the latest hip hop tracks.
Pearl's biggest hit and crowd favorite is the orange yuzu, a clear winner due to its refreshing taste and all-natural, pastel rainbow coloring. Curious about this newly famous orange yuzu (which was originally created by Phong "as a mistake"), I ordered it and sat at the bar. I watched Phong measure, swirl, shake, rattle, and pour ingredients to create the rainbow hibiscus drink. I quickly wondered how many artificial colors are involved, and Phong assured me that the entire drink was au naturel. Mind blown. Upon first sip, the tea hits you like a citrusy lemonade. Imagine the taste of Tang with a mandarin undertone, followed by a zesty aftertaste.
