Taiwanese Milk Tea
Taiwanese style milk tea or bubble tea is a popular beverage served in cafes and restaurants in Taiwan, elsewhere in Asia, and even places in the west.
Bubble tea is usually a blend of tea, fruit, condensed milk, and chewy tapioca balls. There are many variations of Taiwanese milk tea and there are even shops that specialize in all kinds of flavor combinations.
The Hong Kong government recently conducted a caffeine content study and found that Taiwanese milk tea contains a high amount of caffeine for a tea based drink.
Of the 10 samples they tested, bubble tea ranged from 100-160mg of caffeine per serving, with the average being 130mg.
Bubble tea isn't recommended for children or pregnant or nursing women.
