Comes with a choice of large bobas/mini pearls layered with brown sugar and fresh milk 》$5.30

There is no option to customise the ice and sugar level. I ordered the mix and preferred the large bobas as it give a warm, soft and chewy texture which was not present in the mini pearls. I felt this a little overpriced comparing with the other players out there that sells similar brown sugar boba milk too. Nonetheless, it's worth a try!

Good things must wait. Be prepared to wait a little longer than usual at CHICHA San Chen because they weigh every cup of tea leaves and brew them individually with a teapresso machine. I was there on a weekday afternoon with a short queue and a small crowd, the waiting time after placing my order is about 20mins.

They don't exactly have a menu over here because everything is made to order. We get to choose our own Tea ($3.20) + Mix/Juice ($1.00 - $1.50) + Toppings ($0.50 - $1.00) of your choice. Alternatively, you can go with their popular combinations to save all the trouble and headaches.

We went with their Dong Ding Oolong Fresh Milk Tea with Konjac Jelly and High Mountain Pouchong Tea with Lemon Juice, both with 100% sugar. Their teas are not too sweet and if I am to compare it with other bubble tea shops, I would gauge their 100% sugar to about 65% sugar in other bbt shops. I preferred the Dong Ding Oolong rather than High Mountain Pouchong Tea as it has a nicer aroma and stronger taste while the other feels light and refreshing with the lemon in it.

Dong Ding Oolong Fresh Milk Tea》$4.70 + $1 Konjac Jelly
High Mountain Pouchong Tea with Lemon Juice》$4.20

Fresh grapes blended with aromatic Lan Xiang Oolong Tea and topped with grape-infused cheese milk crown》$5.90

Golden pealrs are available for free but it was recommended not to have this with pearls.

Tai Gai is currently running a 1-for-1 promo for their pulpy black grape kiss till 31 May 2019.

Tried Playmade before Hollin and they both have the same concept of preparing freshly made pearls (no artificial flavouring or preservatives) with interesting flavours. Hollin rotates their pearl flavour every day with honey while pearls available daily. Visited on a Sunday and the flavour of the day is fresh rock salt pearls. Redeemed 1-for-1 beverage with Burpple Beyond ✌

Caramel (Black) Tea Rock Salt Macchiato
》U.P. $4.20 (Medium) + $0.70 Fresh Rock Salt Pearls
The staff recommended either 25% or 50% sugar as caramel is already sweet on it's own. Took the 25% sugar option and it turned out well with those chewy and salty rock salt pearls. The macchiato cream are whipped to a smooth light texture and beaten with a dash of rock salt.

Pink Guava Rock Salt Macchiato
》U.P. $3.90 (Medium) + $0.70 Honey White Pearls
The recommended sugar level for this was  25% or 50% together with honey pearls as it may taste weird with rock salt pearls. Decided to go with 50% and it was a little sweet. Perhaps 25% would be just nice. Honey pearls feels like a softer and sweeter version of KOI's golden bubble.

It's Just Peachy with Rose Cloud
Winter White Grape with Cheese Cloud

I personally prefer cheese cloud (salted) while the boyf prefers rose cloud (sweet). Winter white grape has a nice aroma while retaining the taste of tea while the peachy drink reminds me of pink dolphin but the boyf denies.

Oolong Tea with Cheese 》$5.50

The addictive cheese foam is salty and paired perfectly with their fragrant oolong tea 😍 I'll definitely revisit but not as frequent as the price is on the high side.

Visted Heytea on a weekday afternoon and there was no queue! ✌

Lemon-Lime Calpis 》$5.50/12oz + $1 Konjac Jelly

Lemon lime calpis was ok but I guess my choice to add konjac jelly was wrong. The konjac jelly came with a weird smell/taste, like its being caramelised or something?

😩 *Sigh* when I saw how the drink was being prepared in 3 layers.

Golden Bubble + 'Brown Sugar' Syrup + Fresh Milk 》$4.10 + $0.60 Golden Bubble

I was expecting the bubbles to be cooked together with brown sugar but I'm wrong. Don't even expect the syrup to be warm coz it was poured from a squeeze sauce bottle *2nd sigh* 😩😩 The experience got worse when they shake (mix) my drink before it reaches my hand. It looks like a cup of iced coffee with pearls. There goes my photo of pretty brown sugar swirls *BIG SIGH* 😩😩😩😩

I didn't have the chance to take a sip of the plain fresh milk/brown sugar base after everything was mixed up upon collection. The overall beverage taste like gula melaka milk. It has that very strong gula melaka (palm sugar) instead of brown sugar taste which I didn't like. For the priced paid for this drink, I think I would just stick to KOI milk tea and skip their 'brown sugar' series.

Brown Sugar Pearls + Fresh Milk 》$3.80/Medium

R&B is now in Singpost Centre to join the competitive bubble tea business in Paya Lebar. Yay to finally able to get my brown sugar boba milk on a weekday. I’m really loving their chewy soft and not-so-sweet warm brown sugar pearls.

The best way to enjoy this drink is to first dip the straw right to the bottom & enjoy the warm brown sugar lava and boba (pearls) before giving it a good stir & taste the perfect pairing of fresh milk and brown sugar boba.

Tie Guan Yin Tea Latte
A bittersweet beverage with a combination of milk creamy texture and tea 》$4.60

Pearl Milk Tea
TP Tea uses cane sugar hence their beverages are not too sweet. With the usual sugar % that I usually order, it feels like I just ordered 1-2  tier lower sugar level over here. Flavor wise… I feel it’s lacking the tea flavor but nonetheless still a good quick fix around the airport 》$3.90

Seoi Gor uses milk tea instead of the usual fresh milk combination. It comes with nice and warm chewy pearls too. If only it could be a tad less sweet by reducing the sugar used in milk tea 》$2.80

Another drink to try would be 'Black and White' which has a malty combination of Horlick and Milo that cost $2.90.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @seoigorcafe.sg for hosting.
