Move over Gong Cha and KOI, it’s time for new faves
There’s never really been a lull in the Singapore bubble tea mania, but we are definitely experiencing an explosion in the game recently. Lots of new players from Taiwan (the land of bubble tea we give daily thanks to) have entered our market while more are on their way, and even a local team has set up a store. We have compiled seven must-try, already highly lauded new bubble tea brands you need to hit up during your next bubble tea run.
1. CHICHA San Chen
An established Taiwan chain that has been making bubble tea for over 20 years, CHICHA San Chen is more than just sweet drinks; it’s an experience. The 313@Somerset outlet is a sleek open kitchen concept that we really appreciate. You can observe how the expert staff makes each drink on order, from scratch – yup, from the brewing of whole tea leaves to scooping the toppings into the cup. What tea leaves and what toppings? You get to pick them, as well as your preferred flavours (including milk, fruits and mousse). Complete your experience with a short tea appreciation with tasting at a side counter.
