I had my first try of Koi last week. Over the last weekend, I tried Gong Cha!
We tried it because there was no queue!
The branch we went to was at City Square Mall.
We went at 7 plus in the evening, when most people are having dinner. We wondered if that’s the reason there was no queue.
There was 7 or 8 of us who got interested in having Gong Cha. We were having super 4 hour long super slow healthy lunch earlier. As it was a long lunch, we talked about all sorts of things. Koi Cafe and Gong Cha were one of the many topics!
We found out there are healthy and non healthy drinks. It all depends on what you choose to have. We got to know some ‘health freaks’ and they told us that.
If you choose the ‘pearls’, it has actually the same amount of calories as a bowl of rice! Woo hoo! Does that mean it’s a meal replacement? LOL
As we were with our new health freak friends, we got influenced. Honey Milk Tea. That means it has no sugar added. Only honey to sweeten it! No pearls too, this other friend opted for Herbal Jelly!
For me, I had the Alisan Tea!
Instead of pearls, I had Ai-Yu Jelly. I have no idea if Ai-Yu jelly is really healthier. 😉
I had 30% sugar. So it’s not that sweet.
I think it’s not bad. The Alisan Tea is similar to the ones that my colleague brews for us almost everyday in the office. (Such a nice colleague eh?) It was very refreshing!
