|That is their logo and it is already around since 1992...almost 10 years...now only I know about that. LOL|
|Here is their menu. Quite different from Gong Cha and Chatime.|
|Do not have the queue we used to see at Gong Cha or Chatime thou.|
|Mango Green Tea with Cream @RM5.90|
Overall: 3/5 - The cream is very thick milky taste and it is not sweet. So you need to shake evenly before you drink. However, this is not my type of tea. LOL
|Handmade Taro Fresh Milk @RM5.90|
Overall: 4/5 - Taro means yam. Quite interesting drink for me. I love this one. As you can see from the both picture is they have this unique carrying plastic bag. Very convenient if you are going to take away more than 2 cups.
Why so many people loves bubble milk tea? Tea is always a preferred beverages among the Gen-Y because coffee is just slightly heavy beverage for them. However, just drinking plain tea is not enough for these Gen-Y to fully enjoying their beverages. They need more. So there is where the original bubble milk tea comes from. The bubble is means the pearl which is made of tapioca. Some in the western will called it tapioca balls.
The tasteless tapioca balls eventually has add on some chewing job for the Gen-Y to do apart of just slurping away their beverages. Therefore, the Gen-Y will feel very satisfying when they able to spend more time with their beverages. So after few customization and alteration on the original bubble milk tea, a lot of other recipes have come to light with additional chewing job too such as grass jelly, nata de coco, aloe vera, red beans, Azuki beans and many more. Bubble milk tea has once again hit the market!
FYI, the first bubble milk tea has already started in 1980s. So eventually this is not a new beverages in the market. You will probably asking yourself why you did not notice such drink or why I am not keen on such drink before that? Because it is a trendy beverage which will come and go very easily according to the trend.
