I love Chicha’s dong ding oolong milk tea ($4.70)!! It has a well-rounded roasted flavour and is thicker than most milk teas. Unfortunately, the outlet ran out of pearls by mid afternoon and I settled for coconut jelly (+ $1) - turned out to be an unsatisfying decision because it tasted exactly like regular konjac jelly, which I’m not a fan of. Grass jelly would have been a better choice!

Second time trying Tiger Sugar and it continues to fall short. The signature brown sugar boba milk ($5.50) holds a substantial amount of ice, which dilutes the milk significantly. The pearls are chewy but lack the warm saccharine richness you’d expect.

Bought a voucher for Muyoo’s brown sugar milk ($4.90) on Shopback! Unfortunately the Raffles City outlet closed at the end of July, and I ended up trudging to Siglap to redeem my voucher. Muyoo has the best brown sugar pearls - chewy and just the right level of sweetness! It remains my favourite amongst the many brands.

Expected the black tea latte ($3.20) to be creamy with a strong tea flavour, but it was rather weak and tepid. Enjoyed the cocoa pearls ($0.70) - they were chewy and with a subtle bitter sweet chocolate taste!

Honey lime green tea ($3.20) was really refreshing on a hot day! Honey pearls ($0.70) were good as usual but the only thing we could taste was lime juice - all in all, not worth the premium price tag for something I can get at a coffeeshop!

A friend recommended this and said it’d be life changing, and boy was he right! The coconut shake ($4.40, regular) features a thick smoothie with bits of coconut flesh inside. It’s topped by a scoop of ice cream! I opted for 0% sugar and it was still a little on the sweet side. Surprisingly refreshing and a vvv yummy dessert!!

Hollin is far from being my favourite bbt store, but the one for one certainly helps! Opted to try something new with their black tea rock salt macchiato ($4.20, large) and paired it with coffee jelly ($0.70). They recommend taking a sip before mixing the layers! The black tea is nothing to shout about but the macchiato foam certainly surprised me with its creamy richness, with a slight salty tinge. The coffee jelly gives a nice flavour contrast and some sweetness!

Pearls make or break a bobba drink, and R&B does a mean rendition of the brown sugar pearls! Easily my favourite. Swung by for a brown sugar boba milk ($3.80) - snagged it at $2 using Shopback’s coupon! The milk is surprisingly light, allowing the chewy pearls to take centre stage.

Snagged their opening promo to get both the Purple Rice Yogurt ($5.60) and Oat Yogurt ($5.60)! The brand boasts of using all-natural ingredients and makes their yogurt in-house. We liked that the yogurt drink was super thick with a hint of acidity. Between the two, the Oat drink was a tad sweeter and easier to down as the toasted oats are slightly nutty and soft. The Purple Rice gave a better bite with its chewy rice but got quite tiring towards the end! Each cup is super filling and could probably constitute a meal of its own (given the carbs and nutrition in each drink)!

Looks like a reaaally unassuming bowl of noodles ($3.50), but this really wowed me!! Slurped up every bit of flavourful thick broth. The noodles are also perfectly chewy but soft. My only gripe is that theirs is machine cut rather than hand pulled, which I’d prefer. They are super generous with ingredients and best of all is that they serve belachan chilli!!

Muyoo recently revamped their menu, and their cocoa series has been replaced by a chocolate option under their dirty drinks ($5.90). The chocolate lining the cup is a good touch, but drink tasted like chocolate milk at best - was rather disappointed as I was expecting strong rich flavours. The brown sugar pearls are stellar as usual, but might be a bit too much with the already-sweet drink. Will be sticking to my usual orders the next time!

Muyoo is hands down my favourite place for boba :-)) I loved having the avocado milk on its own, but they’ve made some changes to the menu - the drink now comes with brown sugar pearls ($4.90, medium). The pearls are served warm and chewy, coated in syrup that is not too sweet.
