A taste of Koi

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
