Saw a long queue mostly youngsters queueing for it. Whats so special about it ? Isit because its new (just like llaollao and gong cha last time when they launch) 

 

I can smell that its very sweet from around 6 meters away.. 

Discuss.

Basically Caramel Milk Tea. Probably nice because of the external stripes from the caramel.

If you asked for 0% sugar, the caramel would still add some sweetness to the drink.

Tried mine from LiHo; not very fantastic. Kept thinking about the diabetes I would get if I were to request for 100% sugar instead. O.o

oh man I swear it is NOT a hype at all. Before my first time having Tiger Sugar, I was relatively happy with whatever Brown Sugar drink from other brands. But after I tried Tiger Sugar, the benchmark shifted so high I got so so disappointed drinking the Koi's one a few days later. The brown sugar taste is wholesome, unpretentious, has good depth of flavour and not even the slightest bit of bitter aftertaste. I wish they have more outlets.

Personally,Dont like it and i eat it at taiwan. Feel overhyped. . U can buy briwn sugar and do it as home.

Wonder what milk they use, some bubble tea brand's milk not very friendly for those with lactose intolerance.

Ummm. It's fresh milk, not really meant for those lactose intolerant. Tiger brown sugar pearl milk actually taste like chendol XD

 

I prefer R&B brown sugar fresh milk with creme brulee.

it is actually gula melaka/ palm sugar
a must in Chendol which Zep has mentioned

Not sure how s Kimochi's nose so strong, can smell from Far


Can ask for less sugar too , although i dont really take such drinks (unless it is under colleagues' suggestion to get them when we r out)

Didn't know can ask for less sugar XD. Cos others stalls like koi, you can change the sugar level for brown sugar fresh milk

can 
Most of the reputable brands should be able to

of course some might argue if lower the level, why bother to order brown sugr drinks then
but nowadays Sporeans are more health-conscious (hopefully the same for the coming CNY)

Yes, i hve not seen a woman who doesnt luv it (as mentioned abv) as well as they luving choc, after that they complained they need to slim down

 

by the way, 

for str men, while most do nt have sweet tooth, (gay men have more in the sweet tooth range , nt sure why too)

men tend to like eggs!

a male colleague told me he cannot survive without eggs at each meal

b it u gym *often , i aghast at the amount!

some has boiled eggs everymorning and i saw many queuing at yakun for its sweet kaya and sinful butter bread w eggs

 

a friend who is a high blood sugar patient, now trying to cut down his weight with gym too, says eggs is a must too, goodness

 

 

 

the keywd is in moderation

 

i dont take bubble tea more than thrice for the past 3 decades, if my colleagues didnt wanna buy as a grp

 

 

* : if u been following the gym section, endless sharing of how much eggs they have eaten at one go

while it appear good to bulk muscles, how abt in the Long run??

many slims and thin asked me why r they in 3highs?? Just look at what your daily lifestyle is made of, will do.

I hear this so many times and sometimes can't help but wonder how ridiculous can be, in America, men drink regular carbonated soda drinks by the truck loads.

ie not sweet tooth, ie love carbonated drinks

eg when they drink w alcohol, they have to add soda (very gasy) but not sweet at all


they just need the soda component ie carbonated

Usually use club soda if they just want carbonated with their alcohol, or others go for beer, but sugar beverages takes the bulk.

 

Even in SG you see so many go for green tea in a bottle, that's like 6-7 tsp of sugar.

i luv all sort of tea sold  @ fast food joint* (not bubble tea- that is a strict NO!), but my 3 highs level (medical report just out in march) is always the lowest among the slimmest  grp of guys in the whole office
i guess it must be eating (& drinking) in moderation!

the biggest joke is i read in the fitness thread : some healthy diet incld yong tau hoo, i dropped my jaws hearing that!!!!
i m a lover of soya beans, toufu of all kinds
Many dont even know what they r absorbing and taking (but i shant go byond to other topic)


*: cos u cannot order carbonated drinks, so i hve to order non gasy

I tried the tiger sugar tea without milk, I think it tastes very much like grassjelly drink. I also tried a sip of tiger sugar milk, just tastes like milk with brown sugar. I feel this is totally not worth the hype, a little expensive and nothing special at all.

 

Going to be like all the other food fads, soon to be eliminated in a year or two.

now u know ? 
but sadly i think the fad wont get eliminated in 2years time



in fact the taiwanese bubble tea enter sg as a restaurant concept decades ago (even quipped with singing performance)
the fad dies down

 

and then in the  late 2000s, it came back w Koi* and GongCha (no long concept of restaurant w snacks items) leading the whole market

and for past few years, bread talk and whole world keep vying the mkt from Li Ho 

Now it s getting worse : this week opened a new store (all of u shd know its names if u drink, i dont, it kept popping up from my fb pg) as well as Msia

and i trust all such shallow food lovers alrdy knew the alchohol version: https://sg.asia-city.com/city-living/news/heytea-second-outlet-opening-2019?fbclid=IwAR37QQL33_vlQJUhaSDIdZrq8xKtF0CTrllqqwNzkDOG7mnzdOs7AQljIUY

as well as 

mala pot and bubble tea - making all might as well dont resist it

Chinatown point is a breeding point of such : from their tian ren cha to endless tiger



*: despite the concept has changed , now with just smaller store , Kois and some attempted to add chairs for short conversation stay for their customers too
All the kids been telling me Koi is the best amongst all and adults (gals esp)
the media (cant rem which paper) did a test too - they tested tonnes of cups (not 10 or 20 ) 



Observing such disruptive services like Ofo/obike and grab is my interests
all my postings (if i personally dont experience them)- nt just about bb tea,  i will ensure that i analyse their reports, get from media , check on the tests ( over a period of time, not observing just for a short while and started sprouIng) before i share
