LAST COUNT

Gong Cha is gone, but what about the other bub­ble tea brands around?

Time Out Singapore - - Last Count -

5TH PLACE Share Tea ($2.90)

We’re not sure why any­one would like this half-assed milk tea. Other than the pow­dery af­ter­taste and slightly brown colour, noth­ing else stood out.

4TH PLACE Each a Cup ($3.10)

This brand puts the ‘tea’ in ‘ bub­ble tea’. The strong taste of the brew came through with ev­ery sip, although the pearls didn’t leave an im­pres­sion.

3RD PLACE Koi ($3.10)

Even though we re­quested for 50% sugar for all our teas, Koi’s was still the sweet­est of the lot – and it tasted more of milk than tea.

2ND PLACE Woobbee ($3.10)

If you like your milk tea, err, milky, then make your way to Woobbee at Tan­jong Pa­gar Plaza. This stand­alone store does a foamy bub­ble tea that tasted strongly of fresh milk. In con­trast to the other brands, we en­joyed chew­ing on the pearls, like gummy sweets.
