What We Enjoyed:
The Green Tea with Strawberry Milk Foam had a bittersweet taste at the end, which was refreshing
What we did not Enjoy:
The Alisan Milk Tea with Brown Sugar Milk Foam and Pearls was on the sweeter end, but you can go for a lower sugar level to avoid this
The Taiwan born bubble tea chain, Gong Cha, is now bringing you a new spin on their signature and well-loved Milk Foam series with two delightful new toppings – Brown Sugar Milk Foam and Strawberry Milk Foam.
They will be available across four of Gong Cha’s freshly-brewed teas – Alisan Tea, Oolong Tea, Green Tea and Black Tea. We tried the Milk Foam series that offers a smooth yet savoury blend of the fresh and sweet taste of milk.
An interesting fact to note would be that the drinks in this series are the result of whipping together creamer, butter, cream and milk for three whole minutes.
We felt that the Alisan Milk Tea with Brown Sugar Milk Foam and Pearls was a familiar taste as the foam adapts the same formula as the restaurant’s Brown Sugar Drink series.
Though it was a little sweet for our liking, we feel that going for a lower sugar level would solve this. Alternatively, you could sip some tea together with the foam, like we did, for a more toned down flavour.
Next, we got to try the Green Tea with Strawberry Milk Foam which introduces a fun twist that adds a fresh fruitiness to their usual range of brewed teas.
Our take is that the foam itself tastes like strawberry ice cream, with a touch of salt at the end. When mixed with the green tea, the bittersweet taste was refreshing for our taste buds.
Overall, we felt that the strawberry milk foam was a more exciting and well-balanced choice without being too sweet either. It is a must-try.
The Brown Sugar Milk Foam and Strawberry Milk Foam atop the fresh-brewed tea drinks (AlisanTea, Oolong Tea, Green Tea and Black Tea) are available at all the Gong Cha outlets in two sizes – regular (500ml) and large (700ml).
The Brown Sugar Milk Foam tea drinks cost $4.00 for a regular cup and $5.00 for a large cup. You can get the Strawberry Milk Foam tea drinks at $3.40 for a regular cup and $4.40 for a large cup.
From Oct 15 onwards, you can get the drinks via islandwide delivery on GrabFood, Foodpanda and Deliveroo. While enjoying your freshly brewed bubble tea choices, choose to go for a no plastic straw option by bringing your own reusable straw.
