Watch: We Tried Queuing for Hours for Limited Edition White Rabbit Milk Tea


We Tried is a series where RADII staff try out unique foods, experiences, and phenomena in China. Drop us a line if you have a suggestion.

White Rabbit is an iconic item of confectionary in China — the delicious, milky, rice paper-wrapped candy traces its origins back 60 years and the Shanghai-founded brand induces nostalgia in people of all ages.

But White Rabbit milk teas — are they delicious, drinkable, or disappointing?

The candy company recently teamed up with milk tea brand Happy Lemon for a limited-edition series of milk teas that practically made our mouths water when we heard about them. These teas have been selling like hotcakes in pop-up shops around China, most of which have upwards of four-hour wait times. In this latest episode of We Tried, RADII staff Mayura Jain and Jake Newby braved the queues to see if these milk teas lived up to the hype.

RADII (rā'dē-ī') is an independent platform of artists, writers and creators dedicated to sharing vibrant stories from the rarely explored sides of new China.
