Got the rather strongly-advertised Baileys Earl Grey Tea [$9.1 with extra shot of Baileys]. If you do your alcoholic drinks well I would recommend getting the extra shot as it is so muted in this drink. Probably it is to avoid people getting so much influenced from a BBT brand. They mention an alcohol content of 2% and other warnings in their fb page so you can make yourself well-informed before coming over. The price is steep even with the addition of real alcohol (not Baileys flavored syrup) there, if you are looking for Baileys just go straight to a proper bar.

Intrigued by the crème brûlée strawberry latte as I love the two. Okay-ish. The topping is not strong in flavor, the latte is also quite thin.

I rarely get anything from them as their valhorna cocoa and the infamous taro milk drinks were let-downs for me. The staff recommended this orange juice green tea, freshly squeezed they say, and I can say that this is a refreshing combi to accompany dinners from the stalls around it! It is not heavily sweet/sour orange-y as the tea would balance it, and the pulp gives great texture.

Black tea with mousse, 30% sugar - the tea is quite fragrant and refreshing, the sweetness is just nice to bring the tea fragrance out without being cloyingly sweet (I hate sweet stuffs btw) but I prefer a thicker, saltier mousse with a creamier mouthfeel. Nice quick drink nonetheless.

Don't expect a matcha latte like how matcha specialty places do it, but for a quick fix this will definitely do. 30% sugar feels still too sweet for me.

Shizuoka Matcha Latte

Had a chocolate milk tea with cream cheese [$4.50 for M size]. The chocolate is not very thick and heavy, can't taste any tea to be honest and the cream cheese is thin and sweet.

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.
