The vibe and atmosphere at Tea Empire is cosy, despite the shop is not too spacious. The customer staff was also friendly.

We ordered the following Milk Tea with the same composition of 30% sugar level and less ice.
- Assam Black Milk Tea with Black Pearls
We liked Assam Black Milk Tea with Black Pearls, it’s one of their signature drinks. The taste wasn’t too overwhelming.
It was light, wasn’t too sweet and balance.
- Brown Sugar Fresh Milk with Black Pearls
The brown sugar fresh milk drink wasn’t the best we’ve ever tried.
The taste was slightly off meaning that the composition of brown sugar and milk weren’t balance.
- Fresh Water Melon Jasmine with Green Tea Jelly
We’re impressed with the Fresh Water Melon Jasmine. The drink had distinct nice and fruity fragrant.
The taste was fresh perfectly blended in with Jasmine Tea. It was absolutely fantastic to pair the drink with Green Tea Jelly.
This Jasmine Tea was one of the best we’ve ever tried.
Overall, we had a great time at Tea Empire; Cosy and great atmosphere, friendly customer staff and nice tea.
From our point of view, Tea Empire offers slightly over competitive price among other boba drinks. We’d suggest that they can reconsider and lower the price as other competitors are able to offer similar taste with the lower price.
Note: We’d like to say thank you to Tea Empire’s team for having us.
