Today we went to Crystal Mall to check out some sunglasses and we stumbled upon the newly opened location of Shiny Tea on the 2nd floor, next to the food court. They also have another location in Aberdeen Centre (the new side of Aberdeen). We’ve seen many photos on social media of other foodies trying out their bubble tea so we thought we might as well give this place a try. This bubble tea shop originated from Taiwan and they have a green sign that states they’ve been authorized by Mr. Tsung-Ho Tu, inventor of Taiwan’s Tapioca Milk Tea.
I got the Panda Milk Tea ($4.50) – less ice, 80% sugar. To be honest, the milk tea itself tasted pretty much like any other milk tea. Also the whole idea behind the “Panda” title is that it has clear & black pearls. So to be honest it was just an ordinary milk tea with pearls. The pearls consisted of MINI clear pearls and original sized black pearls. For $4.50 I thought it was pretty pricey. But on the bright side, I really like the type of cup they use. The plastic is much thicker and stiff so its more easier to hold and provides more grip.
