Bubble Milk Oolong Tea – LOHAS Tea Shop, Bukit Mertajam – Chinese loves bubble tea very much, so do I! I am a super bubble tea fan, it’s so much better than Starbucks Coffee although they are two different category of beverage. With the rise of famous international brand like Chatime, Gong Cha, Share Tea and more, local bubble tea shops are trying very hard to compete with them as people tend to go for a more famous brand.
Despite the many brand of bubble tea in town, e.g. Chatime, Gong Cha, Each A Cup, Fresh (Penang), LOHAS (Penang), Cool Blog, I realised that people are still trying to create another bubble tea brand.
Recently, my dearest Hueisean introduced me a less known to the Penang-island people bubble tea brand – LOHAS Tea Shop, which is located in Bukit Mertajam. LOHAS is quite well-known at Bukit Mertajam before the arriving of Chatime and has been a hangout spot for the young for some times.
The cafe has a simple decoration, yet it brings out a minimalist and warm sense with the illuminating panel. I like the brand name too – LOHAS, which actually means Lifestyle Of Health And Sustainable in general term. Looking at the menu, it offers bubble tea just like any other typical bubble tea shop, but at a lower price and they do serve little snack food too. This is what makes it stand out from others.
I ordered a cup of regular size Bubble Milk Oolong Tea with Pearl (RM4.00 + RM0.50 for pearl). I quite like the price for the cup of bubble tea as normally, I have to pay RM5.90 – RM6.90 for a similar cup of bubble tea at the well-known brand.
The bubble is quite chewy in my opinion, and the oolong tea taste is there, however it would be better if the essence, the taste of the tea can be stronger. Overall, it’s OK-good, I like it because of the price, as well of the not-bad-ness.
If you ever to be in Bukit Mertajam, do pay a visit if you are a bubble tea fans.
