Bubble Tea at Bubbles Bangsar. Now that’s a mouthful isn’t it?
Creative name aside, Bubbles menu also sports some originative blends such as durian and kumquat.
It was a savvy business move really, since they already had the upperhand of owning their own plantation and cultivating their own tea.
For Bubbles, this means complete control of the base of every bubble tea cup; which is the tea. Unfortunately their syrups and powders as well as toppings are still outsourced but we were assured that the very best were used.
The interior was as cheery as the colours of the name and the same can be said of their staff here. Ever patient and warm, they took time to explain and recommend the teas from the menu; which was sectioned to 3 main bases; Milk Tea Series, Fruit Tea Series (choose black or green tea) and Local Delight Series.
Take you pick from 2 sizes, SMALL (500ml) for RM4.90 or REGULAR (700ml) for RM5.90.
Toppings for the drinks are available for RM1 onwards and the gamut of choices available are as below:
Kamquat with yogurt pearls (RM5.90 + RM1.00 for topping)
Milo Ais Bubble Tea with Yogurt Pearl (RM5.90 + RM1.00 for topping)
Strawberry Milk Tea with Rainbow Jelly (RM5.90 + RM1.00 for topping)
There’s no limit to the toppings as long you have no limit on your wallet. Just add RM1.00 per chosen topping! :DD
The group of us in a mad bubble tea-ing session.
I like the bubble tea here but I have to admit I’m no expert. I avoid bubble teas in general as I find them a waste of money (RM8-10 for one cup??) as the price of each cup is equivalent to one hawker meal. But the primary reason was due to my stomach sensitivity. I have the unfortunately tendency of getting gastric whenever I drink tea. Like I said before, perhaps those were made from tea of poorer quality, since I had absolutely no problems that day after my ‘tastea’ session at Cameron Valley Tea followed by a kumquat bubble tea at Bubbles.
Our general consensus was Bubbles is value for money since a 500ml cup starts at RM4.90 without any taxes. Besides, the pearls (one of the main differentiation factor for the bubble tea competitors) is pleasantly chewier with a better mouthfeel.
Another topping; the yogurt pearls were a firm favourite as well as each sphere bursted to squirt sweet yogurt into the mouth. Unhealthy levels of saccharine which was also a concern when consuming bubble teas weren’t an issue that day since our drinks were all prepared with a good balance of sugar, without us having to request for less sugar.
For my next gym session in Bangsar, I shall treat myself to a Durian Tea with Aloe Vera topping. That’s one flavour that I haven’t been able to purge from my mind. I just have to know how it taste like! 😀
