Milk Tea in Bamboo Cups Goes Viral in China

If you’ve scrolled on Chinese social media or taken a stroll around major cities in China recently, chances are you’ve seen this drink in a bamboo cup.

The milk tea drink is topped with whipped cream, matcha powder, and nut or fruit bits, which makes for a perfect photo.
