Bunny Tea – Thirst-Quenching Tea in Unique Flavours!
We know that the bubble tea craze in Singapore will never really come to an end. What was first assumed as a passing phase, is now a permanent fixture in our food and beverage scene!
If you’re looking for new-fangled flavours as opposed to the usual milk tea, Bunny Tea has it all! The bubble tea store is located at Duo Galleria, and is quite different from other bubble tea stores.
Bunny Tea is an actual store — there are seats available (even though limited), so you can rest, relax and enjoy your bubble tea. Other than bubble tea, the store sells light snacks as well! Apart from sandwiches, muffins and croissants, the store also does their own tortillas wraps that are great for a grab-and-go meal.
If you’re wondering why the shop is named Bunny Tea, there isn’t any reason to it! The owners just thought of a name and decided to stick with Bunny Tea.
We tried the Chicken Tortilla with Pesto Sauce ($6.50), which we felt was quite a disappointment. There was very little filling inside the flatbread, and everything just didn’t come together harmoniously.
Bunny Tea isn’t missing out on the current craze — cheese tea. Under their Cream Cheese Top Series, patrons can choose from options such as Tea King (medium: $3.80 /large: $4.80), an oolong red tea blend, and Peach! (large: $5.80), a refreshing and fruity peach tea with peach ice blend.
We decided to go for the Rosy Rose (medium: $4.80/ large: $5.80) which is one of the recommended items. This refreshing drink is made from rose oolong tea, with actual rose petals in the drink. Every sip gives off a delicate floral scent. The tea is sharp and fragrant, and what I liked the most about it was that the natural aroma of the tea wasn’t masked by sweetness. Floating on top of this flowery tea is a layer of creamy cheese. I was never a fan of the cheese topped bubble teas, and am still not a fan after trying Bunny Tea’s version. The creaminess of the cheese didn’t go well with the light flavours of the tea, and I prefer my tea as it is.
Another unique tea flavour would be the Nuomi Hong (medium: $2.80 / large: $3.80), which is essentially a sweet glutinous red tea. The tea had a subtle rice fragrance, and the robustness of the red tea shines through. The addition of Strawberry Boba ($0.50) is great. The spheres of strawberry liquid promise a sweet and fruity explosion which blends well with the sweet red tea.
If tea isn’t up your alley, the Avocado Milkshake ($4.80) might appeal to you. The green drink is rich and creamy. I could taste the avocado, and I really liked how the drink was a little “oily”. Although it’s flavoured with gula melaka, the drink wasn’t overly sweet or cloying.
Although the drinks are interesting, I don’t think I would make a special trip here for them. However, if I’m nearby, I might come in for a quick drink to escape the heat.
