Koi is known to have queues almost all the time. What’s Singaporeans’ favourite drink in Koi? Koi is also known to have one of the better (and more generous chain store) pearls in Singapore.
Editor’s Recommendation: Green Tea Macchiato and Milk Tea with Pearls.

Editor’s Recommendation: Lychee Oolong with Aloe Vera, Earl Grey Milk Tea with 3Js
Brought into Singapore by food court operator Koufu, R&B Tea offers an array of eclectic choices to satisfy your sweet tooth and your daily #foodstagram.
Editor’s Recommendation: Brown Sugar Boba Milk, Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cheese Brûlée
The parent brand of Taiwanese bubble tea brand Chun Shui Tang, TP Tea (otherwise known as Cha Tang Hui) is the only bubble tea brand in Singapore that offers a 24-hour outlet (Changi Airport Terminal 2). Also, good news for the Muslims, TP Tea is certified halal.
Editor’s Recommendation: Tie Guan Yin Tea Latte and Pearl Milk Tea Soft Serve Ice-cream
A recently opened joint that offers fruit teas, cheese teas, as well as classic milk teas, Partea offers an array of drinks with traditional teas, complementing it with a dash of zesty fruits and cheese.
Editor’s Recommendation: Jasmine Tea+ Fruits (Rainbow Tea)
It has a whole chunk of fresh fruits dunked into the cup and named so for the colourful chunks of fresh fruits infused in premium Chinese teas.
One of the less noticeable local bubble tea chain stores in Singapore, yet this is one of my favourite places to get my drinks. Its extensive selection of unconventional brews charged at really affordable prices is the reason why I get my drinks for there again and again.
Editor’s Recommendation: Jasmine Green Tea with White Pearls, Yakult Green Tea and Ice-Cream Milk Tea
A brand most Singaporeans are very familiar with as they captured everyone’s attention when it seemed like it was going to take over the Gong Cha outlets across Singapore. However, LiHo has gradually gained their own fan following for their drinks.
Editor’s Recommendation: Cheese Jing Syuan Tea, Cheese Yam Smoothie with a Custard Pudding, Fresh Lemon Juice + Kanten + Golden Ai Yu, Earl Grey Milk Tea
So, what’s your pick when it comes to bubble teas?
