I am a fan of a cheese tea brûlée drink from a BBT shop out there and therefore was quite tempted to try this. The layers did not mix that well so it is like drinking kopi by itself followed by the brûlée layer. Furthermore I think the cheese/sugar layer on top could not be sipped smoothly with this cup design. I got this by topping up from a (so small for $6+) toast purchase. I think I'd stay with the traditional drinks the next time I drop by.

Having tried Machi Machi elsewhere, I wondered how the Singapore outpost will serve their crafts. I got myself a black tea topped with a thinner-flavored cream cheese, with no other toppings. The tea is already fragrant by itself and I got it with lite sugar (I am normally a no sugar person) which helped to bring the flavor of the tea out a little bit more. The cream cheese does not overpower the tea at all. I did not use any straws, and chose to sip from the top layer instead, to get both the tea and cream in just nice proportion.

Among the places offering chocolate drinks nearby this is still my favorite - adequately thick with a dash of salt which gives it another dimension. It tastes just nice to be drank by itself and can also be slightly diluted with milk.
You can return the bottle (give it a thorough wash beforehand pls) if you feel so eco-unfriendly indulging in so many takeaway containers nowadays (no monetary incentives for that, saving the earth is the incentive) and they will sterilise and reuse it.

In frame: Sea Salt Chocolate [$7.4 walk-in, but I think $6.9 delivered with further discounts for bundles]. They are still delivering from their sister outlets, Curious Palette and Wakey Wakey.

Reviews say that they serve one of the best brown sugar boba milk in town and yep, they definitely do! They also top it off with cheese brûlée which totally adds to the taste (and fat HAHA but who cares). Their other drinks are also great. They have two foam options for you to choose: cheese foam and tea foam.

Their brown sugar milk boba is not so sweet! Which I like so so much. It could be underwhelming at times when you really want a punch-y brown sugar milk drinks though!

...just because it is everywhere I go. The strawbery bits go rather ok with the milk that is alright, not particularly creamy or full but it is ok for the wide availability.

Nah it is not a drink from any BBT shop - I was reusing the cup to prevent more waste! Taro soymilk from Mr. Bean is a current addiction. The taro flavor is strong but not too much. I even tried one with mango bubble it blended quite well! I don't normally get one with pearls either though. This is a good breakfast option or something to entertain me at the above location.

And there is no way to alter the sugar level they said. The experience is the same with their other outlets. The boba is alright. It is not my favorite.

They ran out of the infamous Fresh Taro Milk, hence I got this after being enticed by my sheer assumption of 100% Valhorna chocolate content. However it was so so diluted. I barely tasted anything, just water, even after I stirred it so many times (I hope it was the correct way of mixing yeah? Because till I finished the drink there was no part with chocolate overload) I might come back just to try the taro milk, but if I want some chocolatey goodness, this will not be the place.

It tastes like plastic, which I hope that it is from the plastic cup. It seems that they encourage BYOC and they sell stainless steel straw as well so, probably, next time I will try theirs with my own tumbler and see if the plastic taste remains!

I've followed the instructions on the cup on how to get more cheese foam in every gulp but nah it didn't work.. The foam stayed together floating on top of the tea and slowly moved away from the lid opening everytime I sip so I couldn't really taste the cheese and tea in one sip. Nonetheless the tea is one of the better ones. I also loved how they are trying to be eco-friendly through the cup design and the consumables they provide. Whenever the queue is manageable I'd happily get my hands on one again, albeit without the foam!

Cold oolong tea topped with not-so-sweet cheese foam. They don't mixed into the drink so what I did was gulping the oolong tea then slowly finishing the cloud. Pleasant experience.
