Best Afternoon Restorative 2007. The English know that nothing erases a bad mood like a cuppa, but even they never saw anything like this. Temptation Tea House is serving that chic Taiwanese import, bubble tea. Made with matcha (a Japanese powdered tea) and tapioca pearls, these variously flavored teas are both delicious and interactive. Our summertime favorite is cold almond (black) milk tea--the tea is strong, frothy, thick and sweet, laced with the marzipan taste of almond syrup. The squishy, neutrally flavored tapioca pearls are perfect for your childish oral fixation--relax as you suck the black, marble-sized pearls through your outsize straw. It's as soothing as a baby's bottle.
