Milk tea, however delicious your glistening cup of pearl milk tea may be, should be taken in moderation. Even with your sugar level adjusted to 0%, it’s not something you want to drink on the daily. There are hidden sugars in those little tapioca pearls and high amounts of fat in the creamers that many tea shops use. As for the number of calories in your milk tea, ask the baristas and staff about your order. We’re just looking out for each other!
