Surprisingly good

I never tried A-Gan Tea until recently, even though I always walk past it whenever I make my way to Plaza Singapura. The queue is usually horrendously long, and since the drinks are quite expensive, I choose to buy from Gong Cha or Each-A-Cup instead. One day, however, I decided to give it a shot when Gong Cha had closed for the day and I was desperately craving for bubble tea. The best part was that there was no queue.

I chose their Signature Milk Tea, and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I really like the flavour of their Milk Tea, and it tastes very fresh. Not too bad for a newbie!

The staff at A-Gan Tea are also pretty friendly, so I definitely will not mind coming back again, if the queue isn't too long.

Worth a try!

My cousin introduced this bubble tea shop to me when we studied together in Jurong Regional Library and there was a branch near by. I was pretty surprised by how good its taro milk tea was, and always ordered it thereafter.

As it has relatively shorter queues compared to places like Koi and Gongcha, the service is generally better as well. There is quite a variety of toppings to choose from, and some unique teas to try! Worth a shot!

Surprisingly good.

With the many bubble tea outlets in Singapore, I was at first wary that this stall may not be as good as my favourites like Gong Cha and Koi. But I was in a rush for tuition and in need of a something filling, so I decided to give this place a try.

I ordered myself a large cup of passionfruit tea, with added small pearls and aloe vera for a price of less than 5 dollars. The drink was so large that I took a really long time to finish it by myself. It was also so filling, I had to skip my dinner after that. This place has more unique offerings than other bubble tea outlets, and is a must try for all bubble tea lovers!

Awesome bubble tea (:

A Gan Tea is one of my favourite bubble tea shops in Singapore.

A must-try here is definitely the grapefruit tea, this will quench every bit of your thirst, and leave you wanting more for sure! Another drink that I would recommend is the Taro Milk Tea, it is thick and milky, with some taro bits in it, perfect if you're craving dessert but don't have time to sit down and eat. (:

At the Jurong East outlet, the considerate shop owners placed benches outside and hung a TV which screens taiwan variety shows in front of the benches so that customers wouldn't feel too bored when waiting.

Do come and try this awesome shop!!

Best fruit tea ever!

Recently, there has been numerous number of new bubble tea chains emerging at every corner of Singapore. A-Gan Tea is no exception. It is located at Dhoby Ghaut MRT and so, its location brings about a lot of traffic. I chanced upon A-Gan Tea accidentally as I was waiting for a friend at Dhoby Ghuat MRT and was very thirsty. I had no choice but decide to get a cup of drink at A-Gan Tea. I asked the staff for recommendations and she recommended me their specialty tea which is the pear fruit tea with white jelly pearls.

I was pleasantly surprised when I had my first sip. It was so refreshing and unique. It even has pear bits in it! The pearls were delightful and springy too! I then introduced A-Gan Tea to my partner who is not a fan of A-Gan Tea. We even made a pact to try every item on their fruit tea menu. Price wise, it is just like any normal bubble tea shop.

Disappointing

I bought this once from their Jurong East Branch, and it turned out to by the first and last time I bought. I remembered that I bought their milk tea and there were no customers when I ordered. Then a second customer joined in after I finished my order. I saw the staff started to prepare the order and it was obvious that the order was mine as the second customer was ordering some special drink. After my drink was sealed, the staff took at look at the order number but did not passed to me, instead she stopped and started looking at the staff that was getting into some trouble while preparing the special drink. I waited for another 30 seconds but still no sign that the drink was to be given to me, so I asked for it. The staff simply handed the drink to me without apologising for the delay.

If that was not bad enough, the drink was not tasty. Except for the ingredients that was crunchy and was a nice mix to chew on, I find the tea lacking in taste and i remembered that i threw it away after drinking only half. Not my favourite choice both for service and taste.

Strawberry milk tea...~~!

I always noticed A-Gan Tea whenever I was exiting the MRT to go to Plaza Singapura. The main reason I didn't purchase from there was because the price of the drinks at A-Gan Tea is more expensive than Gong Cha, which I could purchase inside Plaza Singapura.

However, one day, out of curiousity, I decided to spend $3 odd on a cup of strawberry milk tea, which was, for some reason, the only thing that appeared to catch my eye when I was looking through the menu. Because I was making my way home, I did not drink it until I got out of the station.

Guess the $3+ did not go to waste... I was in love with the drink instantly after drinking it! It was a joyous yet strange moment when I took that first sip, because back in my secondary school days, I drank strawberry milk tea at SweetTalk (which was the IN bubble tea shop back then) and I detested it, so it was a complete contrast from the same flavour at A-Gan Tea!

Apparently strawberry milk tea is the only flavour I buy at A-Gan Tea now. Perhaps I should try something another fruity flavour next time, or maybe something different will catch my eye on my future visit!

(Psst, as an added bonus, I guess KPop fans could also be attracted to A-Gan Tea. The outlet at Plaza Singapura plays Kpop music videos on their TV haha!)

Fruity-teas

A-gan tea is yet another bubble tea chain in Singapore that has risen to popularity. However, I think their plus point for me is not so much their milk teas, but their fruity-flavoured teas. They have a wide variety of flavours to choose from and some of them are rarely seen at other bubble tea shops. Like other shops, you can also choose your sugar level according to your preference.

I quite enjoy the pear flavour drink especially as it tastes fresh and cooling, great for Singapore weather. It is also lighter than drinking a milk tea drink so even if you are full after a meal, this drink will help you wash down your strong food flavours lingering in your mouth. Because it is not as well-known as Koi or Gong cha, the waiting time is also short, so if you are in a rush, you can still stop and order your favourite drink!

I look forward to trying more of their fruit-flavours as so far it has been promising. However, there are currently only 5 outlets in Singapore albeit at convenient locations all around the island so you are likely to be able to find one near your neighbourhood.

lovely concoctions of teas with a variety of add-ons

Instead of simply the regular milk tea with black pearls, each concoction at A-Gan Tea is made up of a variety of add-ons.

My usual order would be either the A-Gan Signature Tea or QQ Milk Tea. The difference between both would be that the former has a mix of green tea with milk and the latter is simply milk tea. Because of this, I prefer the A-Gan Signature Tea to the QQ Milk Tea. The usual mix of A-gan Signature Tea is milk tea with black and white pearls. I would change the black pearls to coconut jelly, which is subject to additional charges. Combined with the coconut jelly and tea, it is a very sweet drink. Lesser sugar, at 80%, is recommended. For fans of tapioca, the tapioca drink is worth a try as the taste of the drink is rich and filled with the sweetness of tapioca and small tapioca bits.

For first-timers, lesser sugar, at 80%, and normal amount of ice is recommended for all drinks, since their drinks are generally sweeter than many other bubble tea stores. Some stores may not allow customers to change the add-ons, indicating that it is a fixed concoction, but requesting nicely for the change would get you what you want, most of the time.

taro taro taro!

One of the first few bubble tea stores i know in Singapore to offer taro milk tea (or taro milk i forgot the name), this drink from A GAN changed my perception of taro.

I don't hate taro, I just don't have a specific liking for it. So imagine my face when my sister insisted that she wants to try their taro drink cos it’s so highly recommended by her friend. Her friend must have made a really good recommendation, or the people at A GAN must have made it really well. Either way, this drink made me decide that taro in a drink is probably quite good after all.

I had this mindset that this taro drink must just taste like a liquid version of the teochew dessert, yam paste. well i was half right. it tasted exactly like that, but the texture was definitely different. it was smooth and milky but really rich, so do share this with a friend unless you are a true taro fan. Also, taro bit are added into thee drink instead of pearls, which gives it additional flavour and texture. Chewy glutinous rice strips are also added to the drink, which was a plus point to me cos I really like those chewy strips in my drink.

There are more bubble tea stores coming up in Singapore selling all these drinks at more than $3 a pop, so although i would admit that they do their drinks well, its not to say that the other stalls do it worse, so I wouldn’t recommend you making a trip down to this stall just to get a drink
