Let's give it to Taiwan when it comes to milk tea dominance.That industry is not just huge in Taiwan it extends beyond even as far as China. When I google "best milk tea in China" while in Shanghai, the search generated "COCO" as the favorite.

Not in Beijing though. In the streets of the capital, there is one refreshment that is undoubtedly unrivaled -- Nai Lao or popularly known as Beijing Yogurt.
Many vendors now serve suān nǎi in disposable plastic cups but the best way to drink it is by traditional way --- in white ceramic containers. Cool!
That said, you have stay a while in the store where you buy it and finish before you leave because you cannot bring home the container with you. Since it's porcelain, it's heavy and it feels like there's lots of yogurt in it only to realize that there isn't much actually. Deceptive? yeah, but forgivable, because it is really delicious and for a non-local like me, drinking it in a porcelain is really the fun part.
