    My SO just happened to have to go to the Boba Tree area this afternoon. She was intrigued about it as well. She stopped in and got three teas – a Cheese Oolong, Super Crazy Fruit and a Honey Green Tea. All are excellent. The cheese one is a bit hard to describe. But it is very tasty. The cheese top is a thick foam. Drinking it from the cup gives one a great foam mustache. We wil be going back.

        These milk tea shops are pretty common in Asia. You can try looking for places at a local China town, or wherever Filipinos, Vietnamese, and others shop. Alternatively, you can look for these milk tea places or else sandwiches & drink shops at major East/Southeast Asian airports.

        Among the more well-known chains in Asia are Gong Cha, Quickly, Bubble Tea, Happy Lemon etc. Popular flavors would be Salt & Cheese, Matsuki (red bean), Matcha, Taro, or even Durian. RIght now, I’m looking to try some milk tea varities in Hanoi where I’m currently staying, as well as stuff from the local Gong Cha.

The real part of admittance is conductance. Susceptance and admittance are measured in Siemens. Impedance and Conducatance are measured in Ohms.

      You really have to work on your haiku structure; that’s not even close.
