Bubble Tea? It's Woobbee time!
In our never-ending quest to satisfying our collective sweet tooths (or should that be 'sweet teeth'?), anibee decided to head out in search of a new treat - and we found something that's yummy and healthy too!
Tucked away at Beach road's Shaw Tower, we discovered a lovely bubble tea shop - Woobbee! Adorned with a fusion of vintage and modern pieces and with a constant, pleasant wave of popular music playing in the background, the ambience was undeniably 'homey'. What truly sets Woobbee apart however, is their strict policy of using only raw sugar in their bubble tea.
What's so special about raw sugar? Raw sugar is unrefined sugar and contains fewer chemicals compared to white sugar. Also, it contains fewer calories and is definitely a healthier choice compared to the other types of refined sugar available in the market. Thus, due to these benefits, raw sugar is more expensive but Woobbee's insistence on using it gives us the perfect reason for getting a cup of bubble tea. Each cupful of goodness is not only loaded with the freshest premium brew, they are also a healthier choice!
Tea time, anyone?
So which flavour should you order at Woobbee? We tried two of their newest flavours:
Specialty Milk Tea Herbal Mint
With a refreshing taste unlike anything we've ever tasted, we were totally blown away by this pleasant surprise! The secret ingredient here is Pi Pa Gao, which is used in just the right amount, giving the drink a specific 'punch' to its flavour without tasting medicinal. Bonus points for the silky smooth glass jelly which complements the drink perfectly. It not only soothes a sore throat but leaves a yummy minty aftertaste too. Overall, it is a refreshing and surprisingly delectable experience! We reckon everyone should try this at least once in their lifetime!
Specialty Classic Tea Guava Plum
For fans who like their tea without milk, this is a good recommendation for you. An aromatic blend of guava and plum tea with juicy Aloe Vera bits, this is indeed an enjoyable drink. Easy on the taste buds with thirst quenching effects, it's a sure-fire solution to keeping your cool in our hot weather. If you are lover of guava and sour plum, you'll definitely love this!
Woobbee also serves delightful toasts as well and exclusively available at Shaw Tower. Our top pick is Woobbee's signature Milk Butter Toast. Don't be mistaken though - this is no mere slice of bread with condensed milk slapped on top of it!
This Milk butter toast is toasted till the edges are crispy with a soft milky centre, blended with butter and delicious milk spread on top. This is akin to the Bo Luo Bao served in most Hong Kong restaurants. The aromatic smell of toast in the air further whets our appetite. From just the first bite, your mouth is greeted by the taste of moist buttermilk beneath the crust, simply tantalising your taste buds. At just $3.80 with a cup of steaming hot coffee or tea this is definitely a yummilicous treat!
