On the other hand, the bubble tea was eaten by @jechikka, and she ate the whole thing! 3️⃣: Caramel Matcha Latte | 💛: 9/10 →❓: Add some caramel? You wouldn't think to put caramel, but this surprised us! The caramel is at the bottom, but if you give it a good stir it doesn't sink back to the bottom - rich sweetness that gives your matcha an extra kick! 4️⃣: Lychee Rose Tea | 💛: @saraachanny was always a fan of cold lychee rose tea, so on a cold night, this was perfect! What's cool about this place is that you can check out the variety of tea flavours they have and smell the tea leaves! This interior is also super cute, so if you want cute insta pics, you gotta go here!
