With no pun intended, some of us are wondering if the bubble tea bubble would burst again. But it seems like the trend is still going through.
The Moment Singapore 這一刻 is the latest to arrive in Singapore, originating from Zhongli District, in Taoyuan City Taiwan.
It is a relatively new brand established in 2017. The Moment was founded by Nikki and Emily, two individuals with a shared passion for crafting bubble tea concoctions.
Both founders gained considerable experience by working in various shops before finally deciding to open their shop called “The Moment 這一刻”. Were they inspired by Stephanie Sun’s hit song?
The Singapore store is located at Telok Ayer, offering six types of drink series including Flavoured Tea, Fresh Milk Tea, Fragrant Milk Tea, Fresh Lemon Juice, Fruit Tea, and Small Cup Limited.
If you are deciding what to get, their recommended drinks include Oolong Green Tea ($2.50, $3.20), Winter Melon Latte ($4.30, $5.30), Ceylon Milk Tea ($2.90, $3.90), Plum Lemon Green Tea ($4.80), Passion Fruit QQ ($4.90), and Fresh Milk with Pearls ($4.90).
I asked and there is no Brown Sugar Milk, just in case you are wondering.
That one drink that many of the CBD workers are getting, is the signature drink of The Moment Grey Milk Tea ($5.80, $6.80). I thought it is slightly on the expensive side though, but maybe rental in the CBD is higher..
The drink is a good-looker, with the shades of grey coming from bamboo charcoal with fresh milk.
The charcoal itself didn’t have a strong, distinct flavour, but it did provide a rather earthy yet smooth feel.
I thought that the boba pearls were slightly on the hard side, and could be more appealing with there was more caramelised sweetness. Will give other drinks a try when I am there again.
