Share Tea 歇脚亭 – Taiwan’s No 1 Bubble Tea is in Orchard
Wisma has a revamp to its basement with new shops such as Mr Bean, Sour Sally (a yoghurt place) and of course, a new bubble tea shop.
This is Share Tea 歇脚亭 first venture in Singapore. Share Tea has over 90 outlets in Taiwan and has gained a very strong base of loyal fans, also claiming to be the No. 1 brand in Taiwan. It has a reasonable queue (less than 10 pax) even though it is at Orchard.
For some basis of comparison, I ordered a Classic Pearl Milk Tea ($3.50 for L). The service staff was extremely polite, very Taiwanese in asking, and could proof to be too detailed for a very hurrying-Singapore culture.
The milk tea did not have a strong tea aftertaste, and but if you liked beverage milky, this could be your best option. It was the pearls that proved to be the winning edge, very soft-spongy-squashy. In fact, the softest I have tried here, not the usual hard bouncy chewy ones. Great to do mouth aerobics with.
A friend ordered a Grass Jelly with Fresh Milk. While we are used to have soya bean milk with grass jelly, this mixture was really quite delightful. The milk had a slight sweet tinge and was thick layered, which was a pleasant accompaniment to the plainer slippery jelly. The price was pretty steep for $5 for a small cup though. Very pricery, would have cost much less in NT.
Share Tea’s speciality is also in the natural fruit tea, said to be freshly squeezed and frozen to -40 degrees so that consumers all over the world are able to enjoy a consistent cup.
