T’EA Bubble Tea
🔻Space: decorated mainly in pink and with cute little things that immediately make you feel cosy and relaxed once you step in the store. Its not really far from the city center, around 20 mins walk from Princes St. But they are on Deliveroo and Justeat so you can order online.
🔻Drink: unlike other stores, this store only have 1 size for you to choose, 750ml one (as in the pic). They also offer you the amount of sugar and ice as you want. We ordered Oreo milk tea and Matcha Foam to takeaway:
- Oreo: quite cool flavour as they try to mix between ice blended and bubble tea (maybe 😂) but this one would be better if you drink right away otherwise the oreo would become so soft that makes me feel like I am drinking unsolved powder. The taste is average not too sweet even I chose normal sugar and less ice. I was surprised tho cuz this is the one everyone recommended but maybe because I grew up in a culture with a diversity of the most amazing bubble tea in the world so this might not as good as I had expected.
- Matcha Foam Milk Tea: once again, this is the one that also disappointed me. I was craving for milk foam milk tea since I arrived in the UK (don’t mention Chat time cuz their milk foam js not good either 🙄) so I was really hoping this one will be good. Despite the fact that their matcha tasted nice, the milk foam is tasteless, not even creamy or a bit salty or sweet, just like a layer of foam that is put on the top of coffee.
And both of them doesn’t have tapioca pearls 😔
🔻Packaging: really good, they even put a thin layer of cling film on the top before closing the lids so that the liquid doesn’t split.
🔻Price: 4.8£/cup 750ml
🔻Staff: nice and friendly and really quick as it wasn’t busy when we came.

TREAT YO'SELF TUESDAY.. or whenever ya fancy. no rules here. just love a catchy intro 😏 but you definitely need to try one of these d i v i n e puddings from @pots_and_co!
my mum saw a few of these in our fridge on 'my shelf' [please tell me i'm not the only who has their own shelf in the fridge if you still live with your parents 🙊] and said "oooo i like those puddings! i get one of them on my way to work. they're not ones you keep at home" 😂 meaning.. she knows if she did, they wouldn't last long and the rest of us would probably eat them before she could. yup. they're so yummy, you're definitely not going to want to share them 😋
this is their VANILLA CHEESECAKE with cocoa crumb toppings 😍 an absolute dream. has anyone tried them?
