Green Tea With Pudding from Quickly
Quickly is analogous to the Starbucks of bubble teas — they are scattered throughout the City and can be found in other boroughs and have a strong presence in Chinatown.
Not huge fans of boba, we decided to go for the green tea with pudding. The tea, while strong, has a slight sweetness and air of jasmine. The pudding seems like a mango jelly of sorts, and features just a hint of fruitiness. The vibe is more gelatinous than candy like.
Overall, the 2 buck beverage is refreshingly weird. And weirdly refreshing.
