S$5.30 for a cup of Tiger Sugar might not have been a very rational decision, but given the crazy weather nowadays, a drink like this would invite snaking queues just to quench off the thirst.

Essentially the drink comprised tapioca pearls with brown sugar syrup lining the wall of the cup, so that it would form “stripes” similar to the fur of the tiger when the milk was poured in. The milk, the syrup and the recommended shakes before consumption would give some smoothness to the drink, and the drink would be best consumed on the spot so the brown sugar syrup would still remain on the cup.

Between the Boba and Pearl series, I would prefer the former actually. The extra large size of the pearls enabled them to soak the brown sugar from the pot more effectively, thus adding even more sweetness to the drink. Nonetheless, it was still fun to stick to the Pearl for more stuff to chew on throughout the sip.
