You can’t walk a few metres without encountering a bubble tea store these days. If you’re thinking of trying something new and don’t know which to go for out of the plethora of new options that keep springing up, let it be YTEA - a pretty pink bubble tea cafe near Bugis with floral decor.
Although it’s been around since mid last year, it’s still kept well-hidden because of its location at the basement of City Gate, a relatively new and quiet mall at Beach Road.
Read on to find out more about YTEA in Singapore!
The first thing you’ll notice about YTEA (媛叶茶) is its pastel pink colour scheme which makes it look instantly inviting.
Stepping in, you’ll find that it doesn’t just have pink walls; There’s also a plush sofa bench with cushions which serves a photo corner, as much as it functions as a seating area for you to sip your drinks at.
The feature wall behind is decorated with tropical-themed wallpaper, while giant 3D paper flowers add further dimension. Feel free to grab the flamingo plushies as photo props for your drink-fie!
Ambience aside, YTEA has a range of reasonably-priced bubble teas with both milky and fruity bases. Jasmine Green Tea starts from $3.60, while Black Milk Tea starts from $3.80.
Other than Amber Pearls ($0.60) and Brown Sugar Pearls ($0.80), they also have toppings like Coconut Jelly ($0.50), Taro ($0.80), and the less conventional Oatmeal ($0.80).
If you like your drinks rich and creamy, try their Celebritea range which has options like Caramel with Brown Sugar Pearl Fusion ($4.80) and Strawberry with Brown Sugar Pearl Fusion ($5.20). Both of these come with cheese foam on top and free brown sugar pearls, while the latter has crushed Oreo bits on top for extra crunch.
Apart from beverages, they also have desserts like Strawberry Dacquoise Vanilla Cups ($9.90), Classic Tiramisu ($7.90), Crispy Cream Puffs (from $2.90), and Soy Milk Cheese Cake ($6.90).
YTEA’s bubble tea and desserts can also be ordered online and delivered to your home, but we think it’ll be more fun heading down in person to bask in their outlet’s cute decor! The nearest MRT station is Nicoll Highway, just a 4-minute walk away. Alternatively, you can take an 11-minute walk from Bugis MRT.
