KOI Thé Singapore – Popular Matcha Latte and Matcha Macchiato Launched At Toa Payoh
KOI Thé Singapore has pre-launched their popular limited edition Matcha Latte at the Toa Payoh outlet.
For those of you who frequent Taiwan, you would have noticed the bubble milk tea chain 50嵐. It was re-branded as KOI when it expanded to other countries with more contemporary vibes to attract younger customers.

I have actually tried the Matcha Latte 波霸抹茶拿鐵 at Taipei previously. It was touted as one of their best sellers, was a decent thirst-quencher, though I honestly didn’t think much of it then.
Those were priced at TWD50 and TWD60 (SGD$2.30 and SGD$2.80) for the medium and large cups with pearls. (Will contrast this to Singapore’s pricing.)
The reasons for its popularity was perhaps due to its obvious green and white layers, making it highly instagrammable.
Also the matcha powder used is specially imported from Japan, and there were not too many bubble tea shops yet offering such combinations of gradient matcha latte.
Over at Singapore’s Toa Payoh branch, Matcha Latte and Matcha Macchiato are available, both priced at $4.10 for the medium cup, and $5.70 for large.
However, most customers I observed bought only the Matcha Latte as it was the only cup displayed on the promotional board.
While the service crew highly recommended 70% as the ideal sugar level, I thought that 25% could have been a better choice.
It was not overly sweet, while you can still savour the distinct green tea notes. For those who like your beverages heavy and milky, this would be for you.
The Matcha Macchiato had slight bitterness, and was less heavy on the palate.
Is it me, or the ones sold in Taiwan looked better?
