🍴Black Milk Tea with Panna Cotta ($7.50), Strawberry Latte with Panna Cotta ($8.50)
⭐️ 8/10
Welcome to the bubble tea brand endorsed by the one-and-only Jay Chou! With the #burpple 1-for-1 deal, the drinks come up to about $3 per person, which I felt was pretty affordable if you’d like to try something new. I had the Black Milk Tea with Panna Cotta, which had the deep, authentic aroma of black tea that is not found in conventional milk tea brands. I enjoyed the milky and creamy panna cotta, which melted beautifully in my mouth and contrasted well with the slight bitterness of the black milk tea. My friend’s Strawberry Latte with Panna Cotta was smooth and velvety, with a natural sweetness from the fresh strawberries – a must-try for those with a sweet tooth.
I was also extremely charmed by the adorable aesthetic of the store and their cute mascot printed on the bottles! Nonetheless, since the drink is too heavy and jelak to finish in one sitting, it was a little troublesome to manage the bottle with the straw, which cannot fit into a capped bottle but was necessary to access the panna cotta at the bottom of the bottle. Moreover, it is pretty expensive without the Burpple deal. Overall, I still think it’s a super cute place and encourage you to drop by!
