On the hunt for some spectacular thirst quenchers...

Though the price is quite steep at $5.20/medium and $6.50/large, Jenjudan’s Brown Sugar Boba Milk ranks pretty high on my list. Warm, fragrant and not overly sweet, the signature concoction was on the lighter side and nicely balanced in my opinion. Served with chilled fresh milk, the brown sugar bobas were also more soft than chewy, which is how I prefer them to be.

If you prefer rich flavours, Tiger Sugar's signature Brown Sugar Boba + Pearl with Cream Mousse is just the thing. Almost frothy in consistency, the bold mix of the mousse was a little jelat for me but I can certainly understand the hype as the cream was pretty fragrant. The pearls and boba were also distinct in sweetness and had a nice texture (chewy and soft).

At a promotional price of $5 till tomorrow, Yifang’s newly launched Taro Latte and Taro Green Tea Latte ($5.70) comes with no added flavourings - no eye-catching purple hues here. Loaded with chunky mashed taro and fresh milk, both are available in medium size only as a large would be really heavy and filling. Fragrant and mildly sweet, every sip was a delight as you get bits of taro and smooth milk. Best of all, their rendition is a little frothy with their added cream which really enhanced the texture. And between the two, the Taro Green Tea Latte has that extra oomph from the aromatic tea flavour. Though, the refreshing touch does overpower the light earthiness of the taro towards the end. Recommended with no pearls or topping, the cups were essentially well-balanced, not too starchy and something I would go back for.

Thank you @yifangtea.sg for the warm hospitality!

Many shops selling milk and fruit teas are popping up across the island, but YiFang Tea (一芳台灣水果茶) sets themselves apart with their aesthetics and customizable ice level in my opinion. Serving a variety of no-frills thirst quenchers, the popular Taiwanese franchise located at Orchard Gateway, is ideal for fruit lovers. Having the signature Yifang Fruit Tea sugar-free with less ice ($6.50/Large), the sweet-tangy medley of tropical fruits was certainly refreshing and great for the hot weather we are currently experiencing. And if that is not your thing, the Brown Sugar Pearl Black Tea Latte ($6.30/Large) was sufficiently good albeit on the sweeter side and weak on tea fragrance. I particularly enjoyed the soft and moderately chewy pearls that held a strong caramel-like note.

Riding on the persistent salted egg craze, the newest addition to Liho's Brown Sugar Pearl series is none other than their Golden Lava Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk ($4.90/M, $5.90/L). Exactly like those enveloped in a fluffy soft custard bun, the thick and warm lava was more sweet than savoury. Balanced with a creamy flush of cold fresh milk and chewy slow-cooked brown sugar pearls, the taste was not bad though the overall textural combination was intriguing to say the least. A confusing blend, the salted egg lava and milk couldn’t completely mix, leaving slight salty lumps in the cup. But I can certainly see, salted egg fans enjoying it.

And for those like me who want to keep it safe, get your hands on the latest Salted Caramel Lava Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk ($3.90/M, $4.90/L), which was launched just yesterday at 15 exclusive outlets.

Be it sipping straight from the straw or after some good shaking, LiHo's latest Brown Sugar Pearl series offers sweet satisfaction with their slow-cooked brown sugar pearls. Infusing them with a distinct caramel flavour and fragrance, the chewy warm tapioca pearls is balanced with the creamy flush of cold fresh milk so you get that lovely hot and cold contrast.

Launched during the Michelin Guide Street Food Festival in April, the upgraded version of the Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk, Brown Sugar Pearls Fresh Milk Party was also well-received and comes very much like a dessert in a cup. Topped with peanuts, oreo cookie crumbs, caramelized biscuit and creamy cheese foam; the layered treat had a nice depth and great textures which really enhanced the chewiness of their signature pearls.

And with plans to expand the series next month in June, keep your eyes peeled for new intriguing pairings of their warm chewy pearls.

Giving the start of the long weekend a chocolatey boost with Curious Palette's Sea Salt Chocolate - a smooth concoction layered with bright citrusy noted and hints of salt.

Hot Chocolate is a must for me every Christmas and who doesn't like to curl up with a warm cuppa of cocoa! Hence, being one of the best that I had of late, The Glasshouse’s Single-origin Chocolate was utterly delightful. I am no hardcore chocolatier but expect a well-rounded cup with the perfect balance of milk and lingering bittersweet chocolate finish. Not overly thick like drinkable chocolate, the concoction was also pretty decadent on its own with the unique, unmistakable aroma of cocoa.

Caught news that Cha Tra Mue's popular Rose Tea Soft Serve Ice Cream will be hitting our shores and made available at selected outlets starting tomorrow (30th November) but would have to make do with their aromatic yet mildly laxative Rose Milk Tea for now. And if it is anything like the smooth bandung-like concoction, it should be all rosy, pinky and pleasantly milky. Mmmm…

Double Iced Cappuccino ($8), Cafe Latte ($7) & Matcha Latte ($7.50)

Unfortunately nothing to shout about, my Matcha Latte from Omotesando was a tad too milky and lacked the distinctive bitter-sweetness of quality matcha. But ultimately the smooth concoction was worth a try to see what the hype was for.
