We love bubble tea and we love taro too, but this just didn’t make the cut. Read so many good reviews about it that we decided to give it a shot, but it was disappointing. At 50% sugar level, it was not sweet at all and the green tea was very, very, very faint. We aren’t even fans of sweet drinks! Our usual bbt sugar level is 25% and the max we’ll go is 50%. The taro was (very) mildly sweet and we understand that it’s supposedly their plus point, but with everything so mildly flavored, the whole drink was just one dimensional and tasteless.

Let’s just say I’m (Chiyin) a sucker for anything sweet potato and taro. Kennedy likes taro too, so when we saw the poster with the pictures of Hey Long Cha’s newest concoction, we were thrilled. Sweet potato AND taro? TAKE OUR MONEY. The staff was really helpful and told us that we could swap the fresh milk for their milk tea instead. We did that (opted for 30% sugar because Chiyin prefers her bbt not-so-sweet) and found a new favourite. 50% sugar might be better because their 30% was pretty diluted as compared to other BBT brands. Thankfully, the sweet potato paste was a great complement and was sweet enough to add more taste to the milk tea. We chose the sweet potato paste instead of yam paste because it’s something we haven’t seen elsewhere! The taro pearls were really QQ too! Highly recommend trying this drink if you love sweet potatoes or yam.

We’re Kennedy and Chiyin, a happy, food-loving couple from SG! We love to eat & we really Ken吃(chi)!
