The bubble tea craze first hit Singapore and Malaysia in early 2000s but its popularity waned after a few years. The famous Taiwanese drink is making a come back in a big way this year. We have Gong Cha, Cha Time, KOI (in Singapore) and the latest player who joined in the game is Ochado.

Ochado have exclusively brought in a new Japanese concept milk tea which focuses on Japanese brewing skills, with the freshest and most natural ingredients. Located at Tokyo Street Pavilion, this is the first OCHADO store in Malaysia.

Roasted Milk Tea with Pearls (RM 7.90, large).

We opted for the roasted milk tea after reading through the vast menu. The roasted tea, together with milk is yielding a fragrant, aromatic cup with a refreshing flavor. The tea is rich, and comes with an inviting aroma and taste. However, as we gulped down the cup real quickly, the final 1/3 bit became too diluted as too much ice cubes were being placed inside.

Ochado – definitely better than Chatime, quite different from Gong Cha and can’t still quite beat KOI. Our two cents :)

    Just had a roasted milk tea with azuki beans today. Not bad, and reasonably-priced. Though have to try the interesting pudding varieties to see what’s the fuss.

    Give d Okinawan Milk Tea a try…it has the distinct aroma of brown sugar…a healthier option :D

    For those who don’t take milk tea, there’s a plenty of other choices: Ochado’s Lemonade, Citron Tea etc. :)

    Btw, Chatime’s pearls are bigger n chewier than Ochado’s…so I will still go for my Jap Matcha n TieGuanYin Tea Lattes there :D

    ulric: yeah that looks interesting too, greenish in color, looks like matcha. i don’t reli enjoy ochado’s pearl, a tad too hard for my liking. tea guan yin tea latte? sounds interesting, will try :D

    for some strange reason I feel SG’s gongcha is better than MY’s one. supposed to be the same franchise so theoretically should be the same … but somehow is different. i’m addicted to the Gong Cha across where I live in SG, but when I tried the Gardens one … eh … yucky.

    So my ranking is SG gong cha > ochado > MY gong cha … lol.

    Another one to the list! Pretty soon we’ll have multi-national pearl milk tea in KL! :D Hoping for more outlets of Ochado so that I don’t have to go all the way to Pavilion for it!

    Agree, I also a big fan to KOI,
    If no mistake, KOI did not offer any Roasted Milk Tea.

    And I had actually dropped by to their shop yesterday and ordered Ochado Milk Tea, strong milky taste, I like the taste!
    The drink is nice, maybe you can give a try next round.
