So I’ve been hearing much about this Koi Bubble Tea trend that has been subtly invading the taste buds of Singaporeans. Almost everyone has gushed about it and every time I walk past a Koi Bubble Tea outlet, I see crowds of people waiting patiently for their turn to get their paws on a cup. If you don’t already know, Koi outlets work according to the queue number system. You pay for your purchase at the counter, then get a queue number that will earn you a wait of about 10 to 20 min, depending on the crowd. It’s supposed to ease the long queues at the counter and facilitate faster transactions at the outlets, I guess.
Well, I finally got a taste of the milk tea from the outlet at Bishan and I must say that it’s not bad at all. They give you a choice of how much sugar you want in your milk tea so you can monitor your diet with more freedom than ever. Not a bad concept. I ordered the Plum Green Tea, which was quite refreshing. Not too sweet and thirst-inducing. =3
Well, I guess it justifies the large crowds and not so cheap price tag. But I wouldn’t really drink this on a regular basis. It’s good when I want something different but really, normal milk teas sold at $1 to $1.50 are just fine with me. =x
Imagine spending $2.40 or more on a beverage every day. It could very well bankrupt me. =x
