I got all excited when I discovered that we now have a bubble milk tea kiosk in the mall. While making the rounds of our activities last Monday, my group and I decided to try out the brand new tenant, Infinitea.
Unfortunately, it turned out to be quite disappointing. The drink itself tasted like plain Lipton tea with creamer. Emphasis on creamer, not milk, since it lacked the rich milky quality found in other milk teas like Serenitea, and even the milk tea of Seattle’s Best. What’s worse is the pearls had absolutely no flavor. I’m not even after the sweetness (I’m a 50% sweet Serenitea girl), but more of the flavor. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t there. The pearls tasted bland and starchy and just plain sad.
That being said, I don’t think I’ll be getting myself another cup of the stuff. Too bad though, coz I was really hoping it would be a good enough substitute for Serenitea that would help me get by when cravings strike. Guess I was wrong!
