Gong Cha Malaysia, The Gardens Mall

With its first outlet in Subang Jaya is well under way, Gong Cha Malaysia has opened another outlet in Klang Valley. This outlet is situated inside The Gardens Mall (Mid Valley Megamall) and it is set to serve its loyal customers while introducing their signature drinks to new customers at the same time.

Just like the other branch, this swanky outlet has tables and chairs decked out for their customers’ comfort / usage. Despite being located at a quiet corner near Isetan departmental store, it’s the ideal location for meet up or rest and relax after a shopping spree… with a cup of their signature milk tea in hand. It’s definitely worth the trouble to walk over just for their uniquely crafted drinks.

Gong Cha Caramel Milk Coffee

This time around, other than their Signature Milk Winter Melon Tea, I got to try out their Caramel Milk Coffee (RM7.50) which was recommended by the friendly staff. Coming from a cafe which specialises in milk tea, I was hesitant at first but the first sip was all it took to make me liking it.

A concoction of the unique sweetness from the caramel with aromatic taste of the coffee plus the richness of the signature milk foam made it a rather unique yet delightful drink. The coffee wasn’t as bold or punchy as an espresso shot but it was subtle enough to give a lasting taste in the mouth.

Now that Gong Cha Malaysia have an outlet in The Gardens Mall, it will be one of my go-to spots for drinks… since Mid Valley Megamall (and The Gardens Mall) is, technically speaking, my ‘second home’.

I was not a big fan of bubble tea… initially. The sight of flavoured powders and pre-mixed cordial juices didn’t attract my attention at all and usually, they can’t replicate the authentic taste of a real bubble tea that I had tasted in Taiwan.

But that was then as my perception has pretty much changed when I first had better tasting ones without any artificial flavouring in it. My interest grew stronger as my friend recommended me to try out Gong Cha Bubble Tea when I was in Singapore not long ago. Since then, as they said, the rest is history.

For the uninitiated, Gong Cha originated from Kaohsiong, Taiwan since 2006 and has become one of the prominent players in bubble tea industry. The fact that they have multiple chains in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Philippines and Singapore pretty much speaks of its famous brand itself and has garnered a pretty large fan base. Regardless of the location, the queue was pretty long when I bought a cuppa in Singapore.

And now, Gong Cha has expanded again and set their foot firmly on Malaysia’s sole. With its first outlet in SS15, Subang Jaya, Gong Cha is ready to gain more fans as well as serving their existing loyal customers who had tried them in other countries.

One particular drink that set them apart from other bubble tea shops / brands is their Signature Milk Tea. Although many have proclaimed of their own version of ‘signature’ series, it is theirs (Gong Cha) that had me hooked to it. Unlike the normal bubble milk tea, Gong Cha’s Signature Milk Tea has something special to it. After all, they are the originator of such special milk tea.

The combination of their specially made creamy smooth fresh milk foam on top of the freshly brewed tea works amazingly well. With a choice of black, green, Oolong or winter melon brewed tea, my personal favourite would be the Signature Milk Winter Melon Tea with bubbles (or pearls to some quarters). The taste of winter melon tea is refreshing while the ever savoury taste of fresh milk foam introduces a slight salt-ish side to the drink which hits the spot nicely. A bit of sweetness and saltiness makes the drink rather interesting… and addictive at the same time.

Ways to drink Gong Cha Signature Milk Tea

Besides that, Gong Cha made it all more interesting to have a go at their Signature Milk Tea. There are three (3) ways to indulge it; to drink it from top to bottom, bottom to top or to mix them all and drink it as a whole. Each ‘technique’ will produce a different experience and it’s up to individual’s preference on how they would like their drink to taste like.

Other than their Signature series, they are also known for white pearls. Unlike the normal black pearls, these white ones are low in calories, carbs and what’s not which makes them a healthy option… especially for those health freaks. Besides that, they are of different texture which requires a little more bite to it. Nevertheless, they are definitely moreish just like the black pearls.
