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.
7. Xing Fu Tang (opening end June 2019)
Although Xing Fu Tang’s first permanent Singapore outlet arrives at Century Square at the end of June, you can already hit up its pop-up store at Takashimaya Square B2 now until 16 June to find out what makes it so famous. Also a Taiwan bubble tea chain, Xing Fu Tang (幸福堂) is fast rising internationally, with over 90 outlets worldwide. Many who have tried their Brown Sugar Boba Milk rave about it, and it’s probably thanks to the innovative way that Xing Fu Tang stir-fry their brown sugar pearls in an actual wok before the customers (imagine the smell!) and still go further to torch the brown sugar powder on top of the tea to caramelise it. Besides the brown sugar favourite, the Mango Smoothie with Bunny Panna Cotta and Matcha Boba Milk with Pink Pearls also look delicious.
