The information I discovered online got me wanting to run to Gong Cha. Apparently, the franchise is famous in Asia and is one of the top places to visit for milk tea aficionados.
|I already checked their menu online and although I wanted to try their house specials, I already had my mind set on milk tea with pearl jelly so that's what I got :)|
After waiting for just around 2 minutes (very fast service!), my order arrived.
|I almost forgot to take a picture because I was so excited to try it|
Normally, I don't finish the entire cup because my migraine gets triggered by high caffeine content but by some miracle, I didn't get a headache after drinking it! Their brew is perfectly balanced. Perfection!
I don't like it when food products get over-hyped. People start saying it's really good, yada yada yada, and then you'd find out it doesn't live up to the image. But with Gong Cha, the tea itself does all the talking for you.
I stayed there for almost an hour reading a book. If it wasn't for the hard chairs, I would have stayed longer. Still, I'd have to say, I really really enjoyed my experience :)
|Again, what's with tea shops and their "fastfood-like" set ups?? I really wish for the day when tea shops would adopt a more "cafe" look and feel|
