Bubble Tea isn’t always about the tea or the boba. Milksha uses 100% fresh milk and only natural ingredients- no artificial flavoring- for their drinks. In general, the drinks do live up to Milksha’s brand mission.

Their Fresh Taro Milk (S$5.6) uses hand-ground taro, releasing its earthy, nutty flavor which was accentuated by the natural sweetness of the fresh milk. Because actual taros were incorporated in the drink, you’ll also get little chunks of taro in there.

Taro drinks are honestly a hit or miss and Milksha’s variation is definitely one of the best in Singapore.

The next drink is for Matcha lovers. The Azuki Matcha Milk (S$5.6) uses premium Japanese Matcha for that earthy, subtle hint of bitterness. Again, this drink wasn’t too sweet. Its taste was more similar to a cafe’s matcha latte rather than a bubble tea kiosk matcha drink.

While the Black Sesame Milk (S$4.8), tasted very legitimate- like a thinner black sesame paste (zhi ma hu)- it was difficult for me to finish it. It wasn’t like it was cloying or anything. The sugar level was fine. Ironically, the taste, albeit interesting, got boring really quickly.

We heard that Milksha makes all their pearls with honey, resulting in a clearer, purer appearance than the usual dark-colored ones. We haven’t tried it yet, but it is definitely on our list!
