It was worth a shot
The name of the tea stand was "Kurokawa" くろかわ. The computer screen promised "good tastes" 良い味. And the menu listed teas with names like "Kyōto" 京都, "Uji" 宇治 and "Shizuoka" 静岡. So naturally, when I asked for a "Miyazaki 宮崎 Milk Tea"...
...none of the workers understood what I wanted, even when I pointed to the 漢字. No doubt about it, I'm in Taiwan.
