A nice hand-shaken beverage is the go-to for many Taiwanese, among which bubble milk tea is one of the most popular choices of drinks to help people cool off in the heat.
However, sometimes the idea of the drink may be better than the actual beverage. A social media user recently shared a picture of her bubble milk tea on a Facebook group asking others how they felt at seeing the giant beverages.
The alarming photo immediately caused a sensation on the internet and soon went viral.
In the post, the social media user posted three photos of bubble milk tea so full of boba pearls that they took up much of the cup.
She questioned others, “If your friend hands you this drink, how would you feel?”
She added that just looking at the photo and imagining all the chewing needed has made her jaw sore.
This post immediately garnered more than 500 comments, with some writing, “Just looking at this cup has me feeling full,” while others enthusiastically asked, “Where is this, let’s have a cup of this!”
Another happily wrote, “I want a cup full of boba pearls.”
However, many others also responded “No! My scalp is tingling just from looking at it,” while another said they got goosebumps just looking at the photo.
One questioned, “Did you order a glass of bubble tea or a glass of boba pearls?”
Those with trypophobia also commented they found it unacceptable and added that just looking at it induced their conditions and made them feel uncomfortable, not to mention imagining themselves drinking the beverage.
