Two of my fav thingsโ€” matcha and coffee to make the ๐˜ฟ๐™ž๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ฎ ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™˜๐™๐™– ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$7.50) ๐Ÿต
-
A complexity of flavours: the very slight sweetness from the milk, then transitioning to the richness of the matcha, before it leaves you with the bitter aftertaste of the espresso shot. โ˜•๏ธ
-
The matcha was clumpy at times, which Iโ€™m not horribly picky about, but it might not be for everyone. As with the cream of the milk โ€” it was quite heavy for me and switching to oat milk may have been a better choice.

Caught these Bottled ๐™„๐™˜๐™š ๐™’๐™๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™š๐™จ (~$21 for 6 on sale) while they were on promo, so this was a STEAL. ๐Ÿ˜›
.
I must say itโ€™s not the silkiest texture, coming off rather choppy at times compared to other brews Iโ€™ve had. Starting off light before crescendoing to a heightened strong flavour, the evidence of coffee here was pronounced toward the end.โ˜•๏ธ
.
With bottled brew deliveries popping up everywhere at steep prices (Iโ€™ve seen $10 a bottle...) itโ€™s hard to argue that Parallelโ€™s arenโ€™t competitively priced, which I feel is their main pull factor. ๐Ÿฅ›

Their ๐™ˆ๐™ค๐™˜๐™๐™– (~$7.90) honestly felt kinda overpriced to me. With an obvious heavier chocolate flavour over the coffee, there was a slight imbalance here.

Circuit breaker really got my body clock warpedโ€” hence the increased consumption of ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ก๐™™ ๐˜ฝ๐™ง๐™š๐™ฌ๐™จ (~$7) . This was a short tasting coffee, with the transition from different flavours taking place rather quickly.
-
The coffee flavour fell into a silky milky one fast, and it left a rather creamy coating in my mouth. Whilst I felt it was a tad too milky for my liking, I appreciated the smooth body of this brew.๐Ÿ˜Œ

๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ก๐™ช๐™ข๐™—๐™ช๐™จโ€™ ๐™ˆ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ ๐™ฎ ๐™’๐™–๐™ฎ (~$7) challenged my idea that bottled drinks are inferior. Coming in strong with a slightly sweet taste from the milk, I was enveloped with a nutty chocolately flavour soon after. This cold brew ended off with a bittersweet coffee note: perfection. โ˜•๏ธ

Snagged the last bottle there that day, sure am feeling lucky ๐Ÿ˜‚

Their ๐™„๐™˜๐™š ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$6.70) was great as well. One of the smoother and well bodied lattes, I liked the stronger coffee taste in this.

Canโ€™t say the same for the ๐™„๐™˜๐™š๐™™ ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$3.50), which tasted like diluted milk, for lack of a better description. Would be happier drinking my 3 in 1 at home tbh ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐ŸŒฟ

๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ก๐™™ ๐˜ฝ๐™ง๐™š๐™ฌ (~$6) was really acidic and tbh not to my taste, but hey Iโ€™m not a coffee connoisseur so โ˜•๏ธ ๐ŸŒฟ

Saving grace were the drinks though: ๐™๐™ค๐™จ๐™š ๐™‡๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š (~$6.50) had distinct floral notes to it without going overboard on the syrup โ€” coming off smooth and palate cleansing ๐ŸŒน

Rose Latte with Alcohol (~$8) had (unexpectedly) a strong rose flavour, though I couldnโ€™t taste any alcohol ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Cappucino (~$5) with adorable bear art had a tad bit of a watery finish โ€” or maybe it was just me ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Wicked Mocha (~$6), a mint mocha, had a strong mint taste which hit you the second you taste it ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ It was like a mint chocolate in a coffee, and I liked the balance of sweet/minty!
