A new contender will soon arrive on the bubble tea scene: Bobii Frutti, a Taiwanese brand that apparently draws large crowds both at home and in China.
According to 8 DAYS magazine, local celeb and Channel 5 show "Tanglin" star Nat Ho is one of the key people who are bringing the brand to Singapore.
Here he is, posing sexily in tea leaf-plucking attire somewhere in Taiwan:
Bobii Fruttii's Singapore menu, which is largely similar to its Taiwanese counterpart, is divided into four main sections: milk teas, ice blends, matcha, and fruit teas.
This adds up to more than 30 choices of drinks, including a range of cheese teas that is exclusive to Singapore.
According to its website, Bobii Frutii's colourful, layered drinks contain no preservatives, artificial colourings, or high fructose corn syrup, and feature freshly made, preservative-free pearls that come in three flavours: original, butterfly pea, and brown sugar.
Examples of drinks are the Extraordinary Bubble Milk Tea (S$3.90), made with premium black tea, fresh milk, and brown sugar bobii (Taiwanese slang for pearl) and Uji Snow ($6.50), which contains Uji matcha, fresh milk, and original bobii.
The fruit tea range includes Grapefruit Oolong Tea (S$4.50) and Yuzu Green Tea with Original Bobii (S$3.90).
The brand intends to open eight outlets within the three months of its opening, and aims for 40 outlets islandwide.
The first outlet will open in January 2018, at The Clementi Mall, 3155 Commonwealth Ave W #04-K4, Singapore 129588.
