As a way to celebrate White Rabbit’s 60th anniversary, the company decided that it was time to give the people what they didn’t know they wanted – White Rabbit Milk Tea! And thanks to the company’s collaboration with Happy Lemon, the people got exactly that.

However, in exchange, to get a cup or two, people had to wait for hours to get them. One even reported having to wait for four hours before he got his.
