The bubble tea craze is back in Singapore. Well especially for the shop KOI. Everyone seems to be queuing for KOI bubble tea. Is their bubble tea really that fantastic? I and frog had walk pass their new Illuma (Bugis) outlet a few time and the queue for ordering the bubble tea is always very long. We had tried to queue up for once but give up in the end. I told myself that I must try it to know what attract so many people to queue for their tea.
Yesh! Finally today we got ourselves KOI bubble milk tea from Illuma. I had searched from the internet that their opening hours is from 10.30am to 10.30pm. To beat the crowd, I and frog went down to Illuma about 11 plus am to queue for the bubble tea. I told myself that I must try it this time no matter what. From the picture I had taken, I guess from their opening hours till 11 plus am; they had already served 70 customers. Our number is ‘HUAT’’HUAT’ (88). We waited for a quite while.
Waiting waiting and waiting….
Here comes out tea!!!
Our long waited KOI Bubble Milk Tea
I had ordered Hazelnut milk tea with pearls and frog had ordered coconut jelly milk tea. KOI bubble tea is special as they allow us to choose the % of sugar level in the tea. We opt for 70% sweetness. They had 100%, 70%, 50%, 25% and 0%.

Quite different from other milk tea that I had tasted. However, the pearl tastes like the usual chewy pearl. I will rather drink the milk tea without the pearl in future. Overall, i love the taste of the milktea and i wont mind to queue for it if it is not that long.
So that i got to try the KOI bublble tea! Slurp slurp.
