Quite nice actually, the milk was not overpowering, while you can’t compare this with Hvala which is specialised in their matcha, this is quite up the mark as a bubble tea in my opinion...

📍Ten Ren Tea 天仁茗茶 (Chinatown)⁣⁣
- Oolong Milk Tea (kosong) with pearls (warm)🥤⁣⁣
For tea lover, this is one of the to-go bbt~
Tea taste > milk taste...

Like the strong oolong tea fragrance!

They do not have fanciful pearls like those brown sugar pearls but their pearls are decent...

Go for the cold ones if you like chewy pearls, the pearls tend to be a little too soft/ not that chewy when they are warm...

There are some seats available for you to drink over there...

Damage: $3.50

📍LiHO 里喝! (Suntec City)
The newly launched brown sugar pearl milk series @lihosg!!!🥤
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk 黑糖珍珠鮮奶🍼
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Party 黑糖珍珠鮮奶大派對🎉
Coming soon (June 2018)
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Avocado🥑
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Matcha🍵
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Chocolate🍫

Thanks @lihosg for having me and @burpple for the invitation!😊

As explained in my previous review, LiHO’s new brown sugar pearl series are defaulted at 50% sugar level, an acceptable sweetness for most public I would say...

Not really a fan of Avocado, but this Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Avocado, I can! Surprised that the combi actually works out fine and there’s even tiny avocado bits adding on to the texture of the drink, non-avocado lover likes this, as an Avocado lover, definitely cannot miss this!

As a fan of matcha, I would love a matcha drink that contains a hint of bitterness from the matcha powder and LiHO just did it! Do not compare this with the famous franchise cafe’s matcha latte even though this Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Matcha is mainly made up of matcha and milk (and the brown sugar pearl) okay? Understand LiHO actually check out many types of matcha powder and tested out different ratio to arrive at this rich and impactful matcha drink! Kudos!

Similar to that of the matcha drink above, the chocolate drink also gives you a hint of bitterness from the cocoa and it taste like those hot chocolate but in this case, cold one, filled with rich cocoa taste (definitely not like those cheapo chocolate taste), this is yum!

Generally, quite like these three new flavours that LiHO is going to launch some time in June 2018, but as what I have described above, these three flavours carry their own distinct taste, which in fact, kinda overpowered the highlight (i.e. brown sugar pearls)...

Whilst the pearls are still soft and chewy, it doesn’t really make a difference be it brown sugar pearls or just their normal pearls when drink together with the new flavours, and this might be something LiHO wanted to look into in the long run if the selling point is on the brown sugar pearls...

But otherwise, these three flavours are quite on point!

Please see my previous post for my review of the already launched Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk & Party...

Damage: Understand that the price would be similar that of the Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk series (probably range from $3.60 to $5.20)

📍LiHO 里喝! (Suntec City)
The newly launched brown sugar pearl milk series @lihosg!!!🥤
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk 黑糖珍珠鮮奶🍼
- Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Party 黑糖珍珠鮮奶大派對🎉

Thanks @lihosg for having me and @burpple for the invitation!😊

When it comes to drinking bubble tea, first thing comes to my mind is...sugar level.

Not so much of a health concern, if I want to be healthy, I wouldn’t have drink bubble tea in the first place, it’s just purely my own taste preference, prefer bubble tea without sugar as usually the sweetness from the pearls will bring out hint of sweetness/ taste of the bubble tea itself, so ya, that’s just my personal preference...

And so, I asked the preparer on the sugar level of their new brown sugar pearl milk series. Since it’s brown sugar, I’m afraid it will be super sweet, but I was told that they have taken this into consideration and the brown sugar pearls series drinks are actually defaulted at 50% sugar level. I find it sweet but still quite acceptable for one...

LiHO went a step further as compared to RB Tea I would say...once tried RB Tea’s 青蛙撞奶, something similar to LiHO’s new series, but I prefer LiHO’s as it is less sweet (without reducing the volume of the pearls)...🤣

The pearls are slow cooked with raw and pure brown sugar over a long period of time resulting in a soft, chewy texture with the rich roasted brown sugar fragrance, the pearls, I like! Especially when the pearls are served warm and here’s why...

Similar to 青蛙撞奶, the Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk was served with cold milk on top and warm brown sugar pearls at the bottom, making this drink a little interesting depending on how you drink it:

(1) Poke your straw right in and drink it
(2) Shake it for 8 times

I prefer (1) as I can really feel and taste the warm brown sugar pearls with the cold milk in my mouth altogether and it’s quite an interesting experience my tongue had, and since the pearls are already less sweetened (50%), drinking straight from the straw is rather acceptable!

As for (2), like what you may have already imagined, just cold milk with brown sugar pearls like any other bubble tea, it’s not bad, the overall taste improved in this case as the sweetness from the brown sugar pearls are quite well mixed with the unsweetened milk (sweet pearls and not-sweet milk would not be that distinct). And as for why 8 times, the preparer said they have tried ample of times and 8 times seemed to be the optimal number of times you should shake the drink to get the best blend of the brown sugar pearls and the milk...🤔

As for the Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk Party, it contains:
- peanuts crunch (sweetened like those muah chee’s)
- oreos crunch (sweet)
- caramelised biscuit crunch (lotus biscuit taste, sweet)
- creamy cheese (lightly salted)
- cold milk (not-sweet)
- warm brown sugar pearls (50% sweetness)

The layering can be interesting and instagrammable, but kinda confusing for the taste bud and far too sweet (even with the cheese) for me. I find this drink quite heavy and quite jelak after a few mouthful for the milk, the creamy cheese and the toppings, they are just too much for one...

So, for those who have sweet tooth and likes 口感, 層次感 and 飽足感, probably can go for this...

From these 2 drinks, I prefer the original one (Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk)...

📍ParTea 茶派 (Wistma Atria)🍵
- Si Ji Chun Fruit Tea 四季春茶水果🍓
- Champagne Red Cheese Tea 香檳紅茶芝士🍾
- Lime Lemon 金吉檸檬🍋

Thanks for the sharing session!🥤

The Si Ji Chun Fruit Tea is very instagrammable and most importantly, it’s healthy! Si Ji Chun Tea with fruits like strawberry, watermelon, mango, passion fruit and lime, can’t be anymore tasty and on top of that, it’s a vitamin boost! The super generous amount of fruits given, not scared not enough to drink, scared you can’t finish only...😅 (I can’t finish this alone...)

Champagne Red Cheese Tea, relatively nice as a beverage, but I can’t really taste the champagne red tea, it’s like normal red tea with cheese, where the cheese is like some kind of lightly salted thick cream...can be a bit jelak to finish the whole cup by one...🤔

The refreshing lime lemon is the best choice for the hot weather these few days, it’s like an instant’s different from calamansi hor, so much lighter and definitely not syrup kind, you wouldn’t feel thirsty after drinking this, to finish this alone, I can...🤣

Find them a little pricey, I wonder if they can keep up with the many competitors out there offering similar products...🙊
