This is a drink that I would highly recommend for tea-lovers, or more specifically, hojicha lovers to get! This drink truly embodies the bitterness of the roasted tea flavour, along with the milky soft serve (Hokkaido milk) 😍

Should I return to Baristart, I would definitely get this again 😊 (** however, it is quite a tiny cup for a drink costing almost $9 so... enjoy in moderation I guess)

Only at Tras Street Outlet, for a limited time only until 30th April 2021

This shaved ice (shiro kuma) dessert is as delicious as raved about! With it’s cute presentation and the “show” of créme brûlée - ing the dessert, this dish is very delicious.

However, this dessert just tastes sweet, with only the strawberry syrup bringing some flavour to the dish. I would recommend for everyone to just try this once, for the IG pics and the novelty of the dish, but that’s about it. It’s just shaved ice packaged differently.

Rating: 4/5, would bring different friends to try it for the pics

Used the burpple 1-for-1 offer to buy 4+4 eclairs at $32.50

(From left to right)
1. Dark Chocolate
Not too bad, I was expecting the small nuggets of chocolate balls on top to be chocolate truffles but they turned out to be small cookies instead. The eclair itself isn’t very sweet but the flavour of chocolate wasn’t as decadent as I would have liked. Otherwise, it was a pretty decent eclair for chocolate-lovers.

2. Ispahan
This is one of my favourite, and as I’ve read, a favourite of many other reviewers as well! This did not disappoint, with they delicious cream and the slightly sour raspberries that cut through the sweetness. This is definitely a flavour that I will consider should I buy from here again.

3. Tiramisu
This flavour is quite accurate to the typical tiramisu. The coffee / mocha taste would be one that will satisfy any tiramisu cravings.

4. Earl Grey
This flavour is milder than what I was expecting, perfect for first time tea-flavoured food try-ers and those with a milder taste palette. However, as a tea lover, I would very much preferred the earl grey taste to be more prominent as opposed to just being sweet. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how sweet the blueberries were. Considering how often I consume blueberries, I had assumed it to be like other dessert types that often use sour blueberries.

Final verdict: It isn’t worth it without the burpple offer. I would not pay $8 for an eclair even as pretty as they package it, however, with the offer, I will consider purchasing again as gifts or just to treat myself.
A suggestion that I also have would be to replace the small circular paper logos on each eclair with a thin piece of chocolate with the same design. This would greatly improve my eating experience instead of having to peel off the paper every time I wish to consume one eclair.

Things to note:
I used the 4-for-4 eclairs deal, and had to pay an additional $0.50 for splitting the 8 eclairs into 2 boxes. Thus, unless if you wish to gift the second box to someone else, I would recommend that the buyer just take the box of 8 to save on that minor expense.
