I like the milk tea and I also love Coffee bean's ice blended...addictive, but have to watch the calories and sugar..

Which milk tea brand do you usually go for? Personally after trying here and there, I still preferred KOI. keke. But there's still some I have yet to try. Any good recommendation that can beat KOI? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'm curious too because my elder daughter is now infatuated with bubble tea, and Koi seems to be everywhere which makes things easier. I know she wasn't much of a fan of Lihotea after trying it but liked Heetea, so it's probably a good idea to try each place at least once, though at the end of the day with Koi available wherever you look it just seems easier.

I’m a huge bubble tea fan, and have tried nearly every mainstream brand in Singapore. That being said, I find KOI to be one of the most overrated, expensive bubble teas. The tea is diluted and too sweet, the pearls are given in absurd quantities, with nearly half of the space in the cup being taken up by pearls, and the price is nearly twice that of other respectable bubble tea shops. I believe most people buy it out of convenience, since there are so many outlets islandwide, rather than out of a genuine love for their bubble tea. My personal favorite is “I love Taimei”, a Taiwanese chain that serves everything from milk tea to fruit tea, as well as a few specialty drinks that are both beautiful and delicious.

Since Covid, I’ve been making my own tea more and more at home. It’s really easy and turns out great. Fortunately NTUC online has added Thai tea brand Cha Tra Mue, along with Indian tea brand Red Label. I buy both and alternate between them.

All you need is a small teapot with a sieve and an ultra-fine strainer. For one serving, just add one teaspoon of tea and dispense water from your hot water maker into the pot and wait a minimum of 6 minutes. Strain it into a cup with some sweetened condensed milk, then tarik or stir as desired.

What I have is just a small glass mini kettle with a screen netting (shaped like a bowl) to suspend the tea dust in the hot water while it cooks. After 6 minutes, I pour the tea through an ultra-fine strainer into a flat sided metal cup, while adding less than 1 cm of sweetened condensed milk to the other metal cup. I then tarik between the cups to mix & cool it off while making it nice and frothy! If making teh ping, I’ll pour it into a cup of ice and top it off with a little Carnation milk if available. At that point you could strain out the ice and add bubbles if desired - they do sell them online.
