Taiwan's bubble milk tea available at Universal Studios Hollywood

Los Angeles, Oct. 26 (CNA) Visitors to Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles can enjoy bubble milk tea, one of Taiwan's specialties, inside the amusement park, the supplier of the beverage said Friday. Ten Ren Tea Co. Ltd., one of Taiwan's leading tea leaves and tea drinks suppliers, said the company began working with Universal Studios last week to sell bubble milk tea and other tea drinks on a trial basis. Ten Ren's outlet at Universal Studios is located about 100 meters from the park's entrance and provides four types of tea drinks -- bubble milk tea, bubble milk green tea, bubble milk black tea and pearl bubble tea. Cooperating with Taiwan's Tourism Bureau, each salesperson at the Ten Ren outlet wears a top with the word "Taiwan" printed on it, while a portrait of one of Taiwan's most distinctive landmarks -- the skyscraper Taipei 101 -- is printed on take-out cups. Such an arrangement serves as an alternative promotion campaign for Taiwan's tourism industry, Ten Ren said. Universal Studios Hollywood, which opened in 1964 as the first amusement park of Universal Studios in the world, has more than 10,000 visitors every day and has become one of the most famous tourist attractions in Los Angeles. Due to the advantageous location of the outlet, the tea supplier said, the shop sells about 200 cups of tea drinks every day. Ten Ren added the company is so far happy with the sales records. The trial sales period will continue until the end of the month, and then both sides will evaluate the arrangement, according to Ten Ren, which added it is very likely that the business will start formally in the future. Lin Hsin-jen, a Tourism Bureau representative to Los Angeles, said he was delighted to see Taiwan's bubble milk tea is available at Universal Studios, as visitors to the park will be able to taste some of Taiwan's beverage specialties. So far, several Taiwanese tea shop chains, such as Chatime and Comebuy, have made inroads into the U.S. market, selling bubble milk tea to local consumers. (By Oscar Wu and Frances Huang)
