Tea x Coffee...? Yes!

Yes, this is finally being introduced in Japan. People always look at me like I am crazy when I tell them that my favourite drink in the morning is a cup of yin-yong, then they look at me as if I am a freak when I explain that yin-yong is a drink from Hong Kong that is basically half milk-tea and half coffee.

So yes, you are basically mixing coffee and tea, and the result is not as strange as you might have it in your head. It is just another milky sweet drink that tastes like coffee but leaves you with the aftertaste of tea. If you want to give that combination a try, I will tell you that the Wonda tea coffee is more on the mild side so it wouldn't flip you upsidedown. As a fan of yin-yong, I am just so glad to see this in Japan even as a temporary fade.



Games, manga, and ramen. Those three things make up my Tri-force lol.

    The way you describe it, this doesn't sound too bad. I might check it out.

    @ReishiiTravels Great! There are coffee x green tea variations too, but this original resembles the Hong Kong drink the most :)

    @JTsuzuki I've been drinking this for decades, so I'd be very glad if you would give it a try even if it turns out to not be your cup of tea... x coffee. lol
