Red bean ice
Red bean ice is a drink commonly found in Hong Kong. It is usually served in restaurants like ''cha chaan teng''. The standard ingredients include azuki beans, light rock sugar syrup, and milk. It is often topped with ice cream to become a dessert.
Red bean ice has been around since the 1970s. The later iterations of red bean bubble tea is a derivative. Some places which serve the drink add in chewy flavoured jelly.
