Hillary Clinton tries bubble tea at Kung Fu Tea in Flushing

Hillary Clinton is sipping up New York.

The Democratic presidential candidate and former New York senator has been slurping in city life before Tuesday's primary.

"I love being in Brooklyn, this is really great!" Clinton declared during last Thursday night's debate.

Moving on to the next cool borough, Clinton campaigned in Queens on Monday and enjoyed some of Flushing's culinary delights: Bubble tea at Kung Fu Tea and dumplings at the Queens Crossing Mall.

Like anyone tasting bubble tea for the first time, Clinton had an indelible reaction. Retrace her steps.
