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