It is very funny that how year 2011 suddenly boom with so many international franchise bubble milk tea in Malaysia, especially those brand from Taiwan. First start off with Cha Time, Gong Cha and a few more brands from Taiwan, then come Ochado from Japan and now Dong Cha is from Hong Kong.

Whenever I drop by IOI Mall Puchong, I tend to try out this brand more and found that they have some good drinks. Dong Cha is located at the Ground Floor of new wing in IOI Mall, nearby the escalator.

Dong cha have something different compare to other bubble milk tea outlet is that they have this little snacks, Wagashi that is made fresh right in front of your eyes that is a assorted hot cakes filled with different fillings in it.

I read in the net, saying that Wagashi is from Taiwan that makes a little combination of Taiwan and Hong Kong in Dong Cha.

Compare with other outlet, I like their Moose Tea which the tea flavor is more thick, the creamy filling that mix along does not make it too milky and its just nice. If you are saying Moose tea version, Dong Cha stood up.

Price is very reasonable and for around RM5 you can get a big cup already.

And as we were very full from our dinner, we opted to try the Wagashi in smaller version.

No doubt that the aroma of the Wagashi is very very nice in smell, texture is like cake and do not eat it while it hot, just let it cool down a bit and it will taste much better. We tried, their Original Flavour, Chocolate and Peanut. I like Peanut and Original flavor more.

Well, its another bubble milk tea brand for you to try out.

It seems that Taiwanese  bubble milk tea seems like the latest trend to hit in Malaysian shores. First was Cha Time to boom in the market, then few months down the road, next brand that my friends talk about is this latest brand in the market Dong Cha which is also origins from Taiwan, also I realize that there are a few more brands opening up within this 2 months. . Gong Cha (貢茶) which origins from Kaohsiung in Taiwan since 2006 then start from 2009 they have bubble to Asians countries like Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and a few more. Hit to Malaysia few months ago

This is how Gong Cha outlet looks like in The Gardens, Mid valley which located at 1st floor if I am not mistaken it is located on 2nd floor on Paparich/Digi/Maxis that wing.

This on the wall would be their signature drink and its the same like all Taiwanese bubble milk tea, you get to choose your level of  sweetness level – no sugar, 30%, 50%, 70% and full sugar.

Seems like they are quite famous for their Signature Milk Tea and the ways to drink it:

  1. Milk moustache – without stirring, sip the freshly brewed tea from top layer of milk foam.
  2. Tea off – without stirring, slurp the tea from the bottom with a straw to savour the freshness and complexity of the tea.
  3. All in one – Stir both layers together and enjoy a perfect blend of milky froth and aromatic tea!

So I ordered and tried their signature drink which I am quite satisfied when I order in their another outlet in SS15.. Since I want to intro this to my friend we decided to try out this branch . .

I would say that I am just very disappointed with the drinks that they have in this branch compare to the one I tried in SS15 as the taste differ so much. My friend just had her Oo Long Tea  a few sips then she gave me the whole cup and I tried it, its like putting milk in plain water and stir it.. Then I throw it away. The Green Tea I had was quite disappointing as well . .

To me I find it weird that how can the quality differ from both branches? I guess that their worker did not train well to mix the whole ingredient well . .  Well well, I should give them another try on their Gardens outlet again . .

Besides that, some of my friends prefer Gong Cha over Cha Time. .  Depends on your preference oh~
