[Bangkok] When it comes to fanciful bubble tea drinks, I dare say you can find some of the most creative and perhaps unexpected flavours in Bangkok.
There was a time when White Rabbit Candy was in trend and shops started incorporating it in desserts and drinks.
Ditto Modern Tea found at Central World (Level 1) takes it a step further with an ultra-cute rabbit marshmallow placed on top of their drinks.
They even designed a photo-booth (instagram-level gao-gao).
With the proliferation of bubble tea shops using artificial syrups, Ditto Modern Tea started with an objective of serving healthier cold brew teas.
They prepare their drinks with using loose teas, real fruit and premium ingredients to get the various flavours.
In case you are wondering, they do serve more ‘normal’ drinks such as Karameru Boba Milk Tea, Matcha Green Tea Latte (135 baht), Hokkaido Thai Tea (95 baht), Regular Cream Cheese Tea (115 baht), Thai Tea Lemonade (85 baht) and Chocolate Cream Cheese Tea (125 baht).
Some of their best-sellers include the Oolong Lychee Cold Brew Tea (135 baht), and The Dark (115 baht), which is a combination of dark brewed Ceylon and caramel with coffee overtones.
Not the cheapest drinks around, considering 135 baht is about SGD6.10 (USD4.40).
You may have spotted on Instagram, a snoozing piggy on top on bubble tea. That is called “Mr Ditto” (60 baht) – a marshmallow shaped like a pig, which you can add on top of some of their heavier cream-based drinks.
Cuteness level 99%. Sweetness factor 100%.
The Rabbit Candy Drink with marshmallow (180 baht, SGD8.15) quickly became an instagram-hit. (Gosh, this drink can buy several meals in Bangkok.)
Pricy of course, though the process looked elaborate. Essentially, this is bubble tea with a caramelised-layered cream as the top portion was torched, topped with a rabbit marshmallow.
You could actually taste faint essence of the iconic white rabbit candy in the midst.
My main complaint is that there is too much ice and too little drink, but that has to be done so that the rabbit stays ‘afloat’ on the drink. Darn.
Rabbit is a big piece of marshmallow – may have the whole thing if you haven’t burst your calorie and sugar intake.
