[Boston] Happy Lemon - Cheese Tea

Happy Lemon is in Boston!

According to the internet, cheese tea is the next "big thing." It's been around in Asia for a long while, though, so I'm sure a lot of you are already "in the know."

Happy Lemon is a really consistent place to go in Taiwan for some bubble tea (and cheese tea). I wrote about the location in Gangnam previously, but on my trip last week, I saw that the Gangnam location has closed (post has been updated accordingly).

This is the location in Boston. What I do like about Happy Lemon, apart from the salted cheese topping, is that there are a lot of fruity options.

I got the Green Tea with Salted Cheese and the Grapefruit Green Tea. Compared with the prices in Asia, this is really expensive. I haven't been to the NYC location yet to compare the price, but maybe it's about comparable.

As always, I got my drink with less sugar and less ice. As always, the salted cheese is a good choice. It brings out the tea flavor and, even though I got less sugar, it complements the slightly sweet flavor really well. In retrospect, I kind of wish I tried the tiramisu salted cheese topping because it's one of the newer fad things in Asia (as in, within the past 1.5 years), but I missed out on that, I guess.

The grapefruit green tea is usually my go-to drink...anywhere, if it's too late for me to drink black tea, see this Gongcha post for reference. I actually like it at Happy Lemon a lot because it seems like it's really made with real fruit since there's sometimes little pulpy pieces in it. Maybe it's just an illusion? I don't know.

Here's the full menu for your information!

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
