If you read about Funan, then you would have known about this already: Milksha,
yet another Bubbletea shop from Taiwan, is coming to Singapore.
But the one at Funan is actually planned to be the second outlet.
Milksha’s first flagship shop will open at Suntec City Mall by end of June.

Which’ll of course lead to the question: simi is Milksha?
Before that, maybe you should watch a video about bubble tea first
(yes we are going to spam this video in every bubble-tea related article until you subscribe to our YouTube channel):
What is Milksha?
Milksha 迷客夏, which goes by the name Milkshop in Taiwan with about 230 outlets, is supposedly voted the #1 bubble tea brand among Taiwan university students. That sounded pretty good, but there were no concrete polls or results I can find to verify this vote.
Even just searching for top bubble tea brand in Taiwan, Milksha isn’t a brand that would come up often.
So we can also say Goody Feed is voted #1 media platform among cats in Singapore.
They have 20 outlets in China, and 2 in Hong Kong.
However, there are legit reasons to be excited about what they can offer. If you have attended Shilin Night Market Singapore, then you might have known about this queue:

Though you’ve got to admit: there were queues in all F&B outlets.
100% natural ingredients, air flown ingredients
There will be no preservatives, chemical ingredients or artificial colourings. All ingredients used, as far as I can tell, will be 100% natural, and their quality control calls for specific varieties of ingredients to be imported from specific regions.
There will be 4 series in Singapore:
- Fresh Milk
- Fresh Milk Tea Latte
- Premium Tea
- Special Concoctions
Let’s take a closer look.
This is their Earl Grey Latte with Honey Pearl, that uses fresh milk and honey pearls cooked in Taiwan, frozen then flown to Singapore.
And I thought it wasn’t anything special… until I went into their Taiwanese website.
They use milk from their own farm
In case you can’t catch it, that’s Milksha’s (Milkshop in Taiwan) webpage saying “For you, we raised a bunch of cows”.
There are lots of bubble tea chains who can tell you that they use fresh milk., but how many can tell you they use milk from their own cows?
Pearls are made in Taiwan, and infused with honey
Will air flown pearls be better than if it is prepared in Singapore? I’m guessing they don’t have the space to produce these here, and couldn’t find a supplier that produces the same kind of pearls.
Most pearl recipes call to boil the tapioca balls, but Milksha is choosing to control the temperature with cold and hot water to result in a chewier texture. This is what I gathered from Weekendhk, which can be viewed in Chinese.
These are then soaked in a honey and sugar mixture which is described as 清甜 or lightly sweet.
Tea is only cooked in smaller batches
While most bubble tea chains would use a tea machine, Milksha insists on brewing tea in small batches and each batch must be used within six hours. Every blend of tea requires a specific temperature, brewing time and swirling.
To ensure that the tea flavour doesn’t develop an astringent taste, after filtering the tea they would rapidly whisk air in to ensure that the temperature doesn’t get too high.
At this point, the article is getting a little too chunky, so I’ll keep the rest short with this: they put care into their products.
But if you prefer longer articles do feedback to GoodyFeed 😉
Taro from Dajia, Taiwan and mashed in house
So where’s the specially imported goods? The Taro they use will be imported from Dajia 大甲, Taiwan.
Which, like the tea, is mashed in the store in small batches.
Matcha imported from Izumo Tousuien 桃翠園
Azuki Matcha Milk will use matcha from Izumo Tousuien, a century-old Japanese brand.
Pre-order with Klook for S$2 discount and avoid long queues
After reading all these, you’ll be thinking about the long queues. But Milksha is so good at thinking for their customers that they allow pre-orders on the Klook app.
You can place your order from 10 June on www.klook.com, to receive a S$2 discount, but this is limited to 320 cups.
Suntec City Mall
Address: 3 Temasek Boulevard, #02-375/376, Suntec City Mall, Singapore 038983
Opening hours: 11am to 10pm
Address: 107 North Bridge Road, #02-K07, Funan, Singapore 179105

If they can keep the quality control similar to Taiwan, then no doubt this will taste good. As for when does it open, we’re not too sure yet.
But keep a lookout on their Instagram page.
