Whenever I go to Chinatown, one of the first things I get is one of those bubble tea drinks. They are so interesting and fun to drink. And now I can make them at home, which by the way, is quite impressive to guests!
You can get canned lychees from the International aisle of many large supermarkets. They look like this in a bowl.
