Bubbs, Bobas & Teas

Not a fan of boba but the boba’s growing in me. Here’s a compilation of the bubbly chewy balls which keeps the interest in bobas boiiinnggg!

Tried the boboshake at the Clarke quay outlet & kinda fell in love with it! This’s the one from the Ion outlet and I’m happy to share that - yes! The consistency is there! I’m trying the taro pearls for the first time and I really really really love it! Chewy and Q, with a nice hint of yam fragrance (tho I’d prefer it to be stronger) 🍠

Beautifully crafted tiger strips that impressed at first look and excites more at first touch. The base of the cup was warm due to the freshly boiled brown sugar pearls- scooped right up from the slow cooker and dropped into your cup. At first sip, the gooey mess slips through your mouth so smoothly, like melty marshmallow! Slowly but surely, the brown sugar pearls solidified as they cool down from the icy milk. The pearls are a lil’ more chewy when solidified, while remaining soft at the same time too. R&B’s brown sugar pearls offer an amazing experience where you get to taste different textures, chewiness and gooeyness of the pearls all in a cup. The brown sugar fragrance was strong- makes you feel that it’s so worth it! By far the best brown sugar bubble tea I’ve tasted!

HeyTea’s signature cheezo tea. Knowing that the thick layer of cheese might be too cloying, I selected the Evergreen tea to go along with the cheese. I’ve to say, it was a challenge to sip the tea with the cup filled to the brim. I couldn’t get any tea out despite following the instructions. So I gave up and used a straw for the first sip of tea. Trust me, thereafter, the tips to drink the tea worked! I’d say, for fans of cheese, this might not necessarily be your thing. It isn’t as strong in flavour, but comes with the saltiness and creaminess if cream cheese. Midway through my drink, I thought it was too sinful and cloying. Thankfully, I made the smart decision to go with a really light tea as base. The thick layer of cheese came with a light sprinkle of matcha powder that serves no further purpose other than the aesthetics given how the cheese layer easily overpowers any powder sprinkles.

Totally shaking up the sins with milk tea, ice cream and boba pearls with Hey Tea’s boba shake! It’s lighter than the consistency of a milkshake, but thicker than your usual milk tea. I suppose they’ve added their signature soft served ice cream, rather than the usual solid scoops of ice cream. Overall, the drink was really fragrant with chewy bobas that are cooked to the right degree of Q- not too chewy, not too soft. The winning factor of this drink has got to be the addition of ice cream.

With so many boba tea stores around town, Hollin stands out with their daily special pearls, featuring flavours such as matcha, peanut, rock salt etc and... strawberry! Y’know it’s the real stuff when you hear the crunch of strawberry seeds while chewing through the pearls. The earl grey milk latte was pretty fragrant, well complementing the slight twang from the strawberry pearls! Got this at 1-1 with Burpple beyond and loving the deal!

Yessss I could get oolong w the idea of having this all day, everyday! Driven by the motto to provide healthier versions of milk tea/juices, Flamingo’s tea comes with traditional Chinese tea leaves - oolong, jasmine, puer, chrysanthemums. Check out their menu for the health benefits of the different concoctions! For folks who’re looking for some sins, there’s the option to add on bobas, aloe vera or salted milk cap (like I did!). Highly recommend the salted milk cap (again, made of premium milk powder yada yada) which goes so perfectly well with the drink. I twirled my drink around to give it a good mix - and woah, it turned into a rose-oolong milk tea which was insanely fragrant - thanks to both the quality tea leaves and floral fragrance from the rose buds (yes it came with real rose buds!) *Disclaimer: Roses, while generally well loved by sight, remains an acquired taste by 👅 so do go for the many other options available if you’re not a fan of 🌹

With my chubby cheeks, I chew like a hamster 🐹 Apply CHUB857 for 20% off Burpple Beyond!
