Love me some good pearl milk tea and One8Tea have got in on the burgeoning PMT market by selling it with the other big delicious fad item of bao. 𝐎𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐥 𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐤 𝐭𝐞𝐚 🥛💡 One8tea have a cool gimmicky style of serving their PMT in a giant plastic lightbulb. It’s kinda fun to hold and look at so we went for it. The milk tea was pretty excellent! We went 1/4 sugar which I think was perfect, good tea flavour, suitably creamy, and the pearls were fantastically soft and gelatinous. 8.5/10 𝐓𝐨𝐟𝐮 𝐛𝐚𝐨- The bao bun was pillowy and soft, and the tofu was nicely cooked - firm exterior and soft interior. However there was not enough sauce or other fillings to add much flavour - the tofu could have done with being marinated or a more hefty sauce than the small amount of sweet chilli should have been added. 7/10 𝐄𝐠𝐠𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐛𝐚𝐨- My friend Lucy got this option. It had the same soft pillowy bao, but with a slab of crumbed eggplant served with kimchi. Apparently it had a good flavour and the eggplant was well cooked, but the crumb didn’t hold its form on the eggplant, throwing off the texture a bit, 7.5/10
We ordered milk tea, fried chicken bao and Korean popcorn fried chicken. I like the original flavoured milk tea, which was made of fresh milk. The bubble was chewy. The popcorn chicken was yummy with crispy skin and tender meat. It was served with kimich flavoured sauce.
We ordered the Strawberry Tea with Kiwifruit Popping Balls in the lightbulb cup 🥝🍓 and Matcha Slushy with Coffee Jelly 🍵☕ & Taro Slushy with Lychee Jelly 🍠 for the Twin cup We love the idea of the Twin Cup and are definitely utilizing it's function to the fullest. The two slushies that we picked complimented each other very well. The Matcha slushy was rich in flavor and bitter whereas the Taro slushy was creamy and sweet which created the perfect balance 🤤 WE WOULD SAY ITS THE BEST MATCHA MILK TEA DRINK WE HAVE HAD IN 🇳🇿! THE TARO DRINK ALSO GIVES HULUCAT A 🏃 FOR THEIR 💲
