Lucky Cup

Went for bubble tea today at Melbourne Central after a few hours at library. Its been ages since my last cup of bubble tea. I personally am not a big fan of bubble tea but do enjoy it occasionally.

*Back to Lucky Cup*

Lucky Cup is situated at the food court, next to Baskin Robbins, near to the Melbourne Central’s train station. They offered a wide range of different flavors such as blueberry, almond, aloe vera…etc and different types of "bubble drinks" – bubble tea, milk teas and others. Besides, u can choose either pearls or jelly for your drinks. I ordered the “red pearl milk tea” *the classic/normal bubble tea as I always put it* at $3.00.

The bubble tea was not too sweet, which is to my liking, and u can, subtly, taste the milk and the tea together. Its just refeshing! To be honest, I never really tried many flavors of bubble tea before as I am slightly deterred by the coloring and artificial flavors * If u keep on reading this blog, I believe you will soon find out that I much prefer, if possible, natural-coloring and natural-flavoring food.

Neway, there was another branch at Bourke Street last time but was closed last year (?) I think. Besides Lucky Cup, I’ve only tried Easy Way (at Bourke street, near to Target) and another bubble tea cafĂ© which I forgot the name (it is at Bourke street as well, next to KFC). From these 3, I find that the bubble teas they made are quite similar/standard in taste; the difference I feel is with the pearl where Lucky Cup’s pearls are the best out of the three. It is soft yet chewy, as compared to the other 2 where their pearls are a little bit harder.

Hmm.. i just like the combination of the drinks n pearls as i got something to chew while drinking! =)

hmmm...i think whoever wrote the comment above about Momo Cup may be the owner given the shameless self publicity?

because i just had jasmine green milk tea from Momo Cup and it leaves a very bad residual taste in my mouth..maybe you guys should change your recipe or something?

i think i shall stick to the jasmine green milk tea from Ten Ren tea station in the city.
