Christina and I went to Bugis Junction today after lunch and we decided to have bubble tea. Christina had a hot honey red-tea, which cost $2.4.
I decided to be adventurous and ordered, Hand-made Taro Milk tea. It was only after I placed my order, that I realised that it cost $5.20 for the small sized drink. The large one cost $6.30.
This is the most expensive bubble tea I have had to date.
At a sweetness level of 20%, I could not really taste the milk, or the tea. There are taro bits for you to chew on as you drink, but I could not smell the fragrance of the taro, milk or tea. I just felt I was drinking bland generic syrup.
So if you are tempted to try it, and $5.20 is too steep a price for you, think twice before you make your order!
