National Day is coming soon, and Gong Cha Singapore has brought back its BandungMilk Tea with Strawberry Pearl (S$3.50) to commemorate the occasion.
If you didn’t manage to get a taste of it last year, now’s your chance!
Since most of us are familiar with the rose-flavoured bandung drink, it only makes sense to enjoy a nostalgic creation on our nation’s birthday.
The drink came in distinct layers of light-tan and vibrant pink, which makes a nice Instagram shot even before mixing it.
After giving the drink a good shake, the colours blended together to form a pretty ombre pink.
Taste-wise, the rose fragrance was distinct but not overpowering, blending pretty well with the milk tea. The strawberry pearls have a tougher consistency similar to Gongcha’s white pearls, and only have a slight tinge of strawberry. I would have liked if the pearls were a bit sweeter and chewier like their black pearls.
Overall, I feel that the drink is a safe combination of bandung and milk tea.
If you feel like giving your usual bandung drink a lil’ upgrade, grab Gongcha’s Bandung Milk Tea with Strawberry Pearl to enjoy this National Day period.
Dates & Times: Available until 9 August 2019 (National Day) at all Gong Cha Singapore outlets
Prices: S$3.50 per drink
