1. Yeppo Honey Earl Grey Milk Tea 

Our team visited Koi Café to try their Yeppo Honey Earl Grey Milk Tea. Each sip gives you a flavorful blend of milk tea, coconut jelly, and pearls. Instead of sugar, honey sweetens this drink, making it more natural and healthier.

There is also an option for “less honey” to make the drink even healthier still, which does not make it any less delicious. We discovered that it enhanced the tea's distinct flavor. We recommend this to health-conscious individuals looking for a sweet treat to complement their classic earl grey milk tea!

2. White Peach Oolong Latte 

We expected a brewed Chinese tea after visiting BaWangChaJi but were surprised by the White Peach Oolong Tea they have on their menu. After ordering it with only 25% sugar, this delightful drink was incredibly light with just the right sweetness.

The oolong and peach undertones were also delectably not overwhelmed by the milk. The infusion of peach and milk into the tea makes it very smooth and refreshing and packs flavor in every sip.

We would highly recommend this drink to anyone looking for a refreshing, fruity tea. It’s the perfect drink for a scorching day! Just make sure not to get fooled by the large cup, as it looks larger than it is!

3. Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea 

We tried the Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea from Xing Fu Tang and were amazed by its deep flavors coming from the combination of fresh milk tea and brown sugar boba. The perfect combination of milk tea and boba distinguishes Xing Fu Tang from its competitors, providing it an advantage over other brown sugar milk teas.

We would recommend Xing Fu Tang to anyone searching for a richer, creamier cup of bubble tea!

4. U-Mango 

Despite being a bubble tea shop, U & Tea's most popular drinks are smoothies. So we headed down to order the U-Mango, their most popular drink! 

This energizing smoothie is deliciously ice-blended, with a strong mango flavor. It was fairly thick, but it blended into a smooth texture that was easy to drink and went well with the rich mango flavor. We didn't have any options for adjusting the sweetness, but it was still perfect anyway!

If you enjoy mangos and want a refreshing, fruity, and filling drink on a hot, sunny day, we highly recommend the U-Mango.

5. Strawberry Cheezo With Bobo Pops 

Since the dreamy pink color was too tempting, we tried ordering the Strawberry Cheezo with Bobo Pops from Heatea. Its cheese layer has a slightly salty flavor that has a sweet aftertaste. At its bottom, you’ll find real strawberry bits that taste sour and tangy. Its salty cheese layer and sour strawberry flavor work perfectly since the saltiness balances the sourness and vice versa. 

This drink ticks all of the boxes in appearance, flavor, and texture. It is, however, more on the pricey side. Regardless of the cost, we still recommend trying this delicious drink at least once!

6. Custard Milk Tea 

Wanpo Tea is well-known for its TaiChung bubble tea. However, since they were unluckily out of boba, we ordered the Custard Milk Tea with 25% sugar for an unusual treat. This drink is very aesthetically appealing, with thick custard coating the sides, and it takes some time to pour and finish.

Don’t forget to mix the custard into the tea for the best results! When mixed well, the custard creates a smooth, creamy texture with a nice eggy flavor that goes perfectly with the milk tea. The drink was rich, but the custard took some time to blend in on its own.

The Custard Milk Tea may be a unique combination, but it’s quite a refreshing drink that’s not too heavy. We strongly recommend you try it at least once for an unforgettable experience!

7. Brown Sugar Milk With Cheese Brûlée 

We all agreed that this Brown Sugar Milk with Cheese Brûlée from Ji Long Tang tasted different from all the other bubble teas. The drink was not too thick, despite its appearance, and tasted deliciously fresh and sweet. The boba is also soft, which makes every bite very satisfying.

After mixing the sugar at the bottom with the cheese foam on top, the drink's texture became a bit thicker. All of the ingredients incorporated work well together to make a well-balanced beverage that is sweet, creamy, and flavorful.

8. Brown Sugar Pearl Milk Tea

Upon tasting, this Brown Sugar Pearl Milk Tea from R&B seemed to be a decent blend between bitter and sweet, with the brown sugar pearls more than compensating for the tea's bitter aftertaste. The pearls are soft, chewy, and sweet, suggesting that they have been cooked for the right amount of time. Overall, the drink is concentrated and quite filling, too.

Thus, we would recommend R&B’s Brown Sugar Pearl Milk Tea for those looking for an affordable yet delightful cup of bubble tea.

9. Lychee Tea With Basil Seed

Gong Cha’s Lychee Tea with basil seed is a light tea complimented with the sweet lychee flavor, making it a light and refreshing afternoon drink. Gong Cha has a wider variety of toppings than other usual toppings like pearls and jelly, including the basil seeds.

10. Brown Sugar Boba Milk With Cream Mousse 

Compared to other bubble tea brands, the fresh milk has a thick texture, and the cream mousse enhances the creaminess of the drink, giving it a richer and more flavorful taste. The brown sugar pearls improved the drink's flavor by adding a burst of sweetness to the otherwise plain tasting fresh milk.

So, even though Tiger Sugar’s Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream Mousse is slightly more expensive than other bubble teas in Singapore, we believe it is worth the hype and the cost!

11. Osmanthus Oolong Milk Tea 

We tried Playmade’s Osmanthus Oolong Milk tea and decided to try something a little different with black sesame pearls, one of their most popular choices. The first sip gave us a delightful surprise – there was a fragrant floral and slightly sweet flavor, probably because of the osmanthus.

Despite ordering 25% sugar, we found it much sweeter compared to their other drinks. The earthy flavor of the sesame pearls helps to complement and balance out the floral sweetness of the drink, which results in a delicious flavor.

Therefore, we strongly recommend you try this drink at least once, especially if you have a sweet tooth! After all, it’s a unique drink compared to the classic milk tea.

12. Roasted Oolong Tea With Evaporated Milk And Boba Pearl 

The aroma of the tea was apparent upon taking the first sip, inviting us to take another sip of this Roasted Oolong Tea with Evaporated Milk and Boba Pearl from Happy Cup. The evaporated milk adds a touch of sweetness to balance out the tea's strong and bitter taste and produce a bittersweet taste. Furthermore, the boba pearls have a smooth and consistent texture that makes it difficult to resist taking another sip.

Happy Cup is worth a try, especially for tea lovers! The flavorful evaporated milk blends perfectly with the rich and aromatic tea to make a delightful cup of bubble tea!
