You may have heard of bubble milk tea-flavoured seaweed but have you tried seaweed pearls in bubble tea?
This unique bubble tea topping is available at Joy Luck Yum Sing, Singapore's first Hong-Kong style bubble tea concept by Joy Luck Teahouse.
Opening at Funan on Mar. 31, Joy Luck Yum Sing will serve Hong Kong bubble tea, traditional Hong Kong beverages and its signature egg tarts.
'Pearls of Joy' series
Seaweed Jelly Pearls are one of the two healthier pearl varieties that are featured in the new "Pearls of Joy" series.
Firmer than usual tapioca pearls, the seaweed pearls have fewer calories.
The other pearl variety is the Lychee Popping Pearls whereby juice will ooze out upon biting into it.
Both pearls will be included in the new "Pearls of Joy" series that consists of three bubble fizzy drinks.
A fusion of Hong Kong and Singapore influences, the three drinks are Lychee Fizz, Sour Plum Fizz, and Honey Lemon Fizz.
Each beverage costs S$4.80 with pearls and S$3.80 without pearls.
Hong Kong-style bubble tea
Unlike the more popular and mainstream Taiwanese milk tea, Hong Kong-style milk tea has a stronger tea taste and typically does not come with boba.
The Pearl of Orient (S$4.80) is a Hong Kong-style bubble tea made with authentic Hong Kong milk tea and brown sugar tapioca balls.
Milo Yin Yang
Created by Joy Luck Teahouse, the Milo Yin Yang consists of coffee, tea, and milo chocolate malt.
It is served hot (S$4.30) or iced (S$4.60).
8 Treasure Herbal Tea
Known in Mandarin as "Ba Bao Cha", the 8 Treasure Herbal Tea (S$3.80) comprises a special blend of chrysanthemum, dates, liquorice, hawthorn, tangerine skin, wolf berries, green tea, and rock sugar.
Its beneficial properties include aiding detox, improve blood circulation, skin hydration, and fighting fatigue.
Joy Luck Yum Sing will also sell Joy Luck Teahouse's signature egg tarts from Hoover Cake Shop.
The three versions that are available are Collagen Egg Tarts, Gold Egg Tarts flecked with 22-carat edible French gold flakes, and regular egg tarts in butter cookie crust.
To celebrate their opening, Joy Luck Yum Sing is having an opening special from March 31, 2021 to April 4, 2021.
