Burpple Beyond: Our Response to the Upcoming Dine-in Restrictions
close

Yet another bubble tea chain has landed on our shores. Originally from Nanjing, China, @thewhale teasg has 2 outlets now opened at Lot 1 and City Square Mall, and a third slated to open at China Square Central.

Sticking to my go-to drink, the Brown Sugar Boba Milk seemed to be lacking in flavour robustness. Nothing out of ordinary for this classic combination; fresh milk fell short of milky aroma, boba pearls weren’t really warm thus no contrast between the cold milk and the pearls, and because they weren’t warm, the pearls became hard rather quickly. The brown sugar was purely a sweet syrup without much depth, but thickly coated around the boba, that made up almost one-third of the cup.

Another drink we had from the brown sugar series was the Brown Sugar Shizuoka Matcha. While I appreciated greatly the richness and bitterness of the Shizuoka Matcha, it stole the limelight of the brown sugar, which sadly, faded into the matcha.

Despite the short queue, our drinks took quite a while to be prepared and the drinks are generally pricier. But if you are an adventurous bubble tea hunter, you could always try out their special concoctions like the Volcanic Sapphire Whale from the Volcanic Collage Series, Flaming Brown Sugar (an upgrade of the Brown Sugar Boba Milk), Blue Whale Coconut Milk from the Whale Crystal Series, or even the soft serves/ice creams.
