【看英文中國郵報學英文】珍奶始祖之爭判決出爐,法官日前判定,珍珠奶茶不是專利品,誰是始祖不需要認定。

The final verdict regarding the inventor of pearl milk tea was announced earlier this week, ruling that it is unnecessary to identify the creator of the popular drink because bubble tea is not a patented product.

對此,春水堂公關主管劉彥伶今(31)日表示,未來還是會以「珍奶發明人」行銷全球;而翰林茶館開發部經理黃政賢對判決樂觀看待,認為珍奶是屬於所有台灣人飲料,應該讓珍奶風行全球。

In response to the verdict, Liu Yan-lin, public relations manager at Chun Shui Tang, said that they will continue marketing themselves as the “inventor of pearl milk tea.” On the other hand, Huang Cheng-hsian, development manager at Hanlin, was upbeat at the outcome, stressing that the popular drink belongs to all Taiwanese people. Hanlin should carry on popularizing bubble milk tea worldwide, he said.

台中的發跡春水堂及台南起家的翰林茶館對簿公堂整整十年。

Chun Shui Tang from Taichung and Hanlin Teahouse in Tainan have been fighting over the title of the inventor of pearl milk tea for the past 10 years.

平時會購買手搖茶飲的吳先生表示,其實不太在乎誰是創始者,基本上這兩間業者價格較高,都不是平時買飲料的選擇,好喝、便宜、購買方便,才是消費者較在乎的。

According to a lover of the hand-shaken drink, however, it does not matter who the inventor is. Their prices are relatively high, so they would not be his first choice on a regular basis. What consumers are really concerned about is the taste, price and convenience, he said. ●
