Green Tea Drink with Basil Seed Green Tea Drink with Basil Seed

Green tea with basil seeds, from Hong Kong Market in West Haven, CT. At first glance, it looks like it's filled with frog eggs.  wally_wabbit highly recommended it.

The bottle has a pull-tab cap.  I hate pull tabs on bottles and soup cans.  As I feared, some of it sloshed on me when I opened it.

Stop reading.  Find an Asian grocery right now and look for this.  If the store's closed, break into it. 

This is one of the most wonderful drinks I've tasted.  It's like a green tea nectar with tapioca in it.  The basil seeds look like frog eggs with good reason; they're coated with a sort of jelly.  It's unusual, but not bad.  There's also an interesting effect where when the bottle is put down and the seeds bob at the surface.

I want more, but it's midnight and I can't get more.  You better believe I'm getting more ASAP.
