Cheaper and faster alternative
My colleague once proudly declared to me that he would go out and queue for a KOI tea for his daughter. May be this is his way to dote on his daughter. For me, doting on my children meant spending wisely and reasonably.
OK Tea is a cheaper alternative to the famous bubble tea but it also tasted as good. The best thing is that this shop seldom has a queue so I could quickly order and get my tea. Time is money so for this shop, it is double saving. You save money and save time. I use this shop to teach my children to not blindly follow the crowd and join the queue of the famous shops.
One of the better milk tea around
I wont go as far as to call this my favorite simply because I still find ok tea to be less special than Gong Cha or Koi. But if you would to take those two big names out of the equation, then OK tea is one of the best.
I say this because of the superior quality of tea and milk that they use. While I don’t exactly know what makes it so special, I can safely say that it definitely is superior to the usual milk tea stalls by the street. I personally like their Honeydew Milk Tea as I find their mix of honeydew syrup and milk tea pretty well done.
OK Tea is my favourite bubble tea/milk tea shop in Singapore though it is no longer convenient for me to get it as the Clementi branch closed down 2 to 3 months back.
I like OK Tea because it has a stronger tea taste compared to the other tea shops. As it is from Taiwan, it is very similar to the type you will get in Taiwan, generally a stronger tea flavour than the milk. I like that it is not too sweet as compared to Koi, and there is a right blend of tea and milk as compared to Gongcha. I always choose the 50% option as it accentuates the tea taste.
My personal favourite is the milk green tea and every one I have bought has satisfied me, so I guess the quality control is there. In contrast, the green tea macchiato I order from Koi tend to vary in its taste and quality. I will still pick the milk green tea from OK Tea any day.
As it is not as established as the other franchises, queues tend to be shorter but this is in no way a testament to its quality. I guarantee that it is definitely worth a try. Price-wise, most of the drinks are around 2 to 3 dollars for a regular. Large cups start from 3 dollars and can go to 5.
There is also a loyalty card promotion from time to time, so 10 drinks gets you one free one. I am on my 3rd one but sadly can no longer put it to use conveniently. Being a loyal customer, I do hope they will open in Clementi again.
