[FAN REVIEW] Liho DIY Bubble Drink Review Singapore

Ever since CB started, I haven’t had the opportunity to get my hands on a cup of bubble tea. It’s been so long since I last had it. Oh how I miss the taste of the sweet tea and the chewy white tapioca pearls…. Well, this is why I wanted to thank Brutal Asians for allowing me to win the giveaway! Thus, due to my huge appreciation, I will be writing a review on this product! 

First off, I realised that this Do-It-Yourself bubble tea kit can be found on online shopping platforms such as Shopee, and are sold at $48 for the Milk Tea kit, and $85 for the Black Tea Oat Latte!! That’s really cheap for 20 cups, but is it really worth it? 

I will be reviewing the Milk Tea Kit, from three aspects: 

  • Cost 
  • Taste 
  • Time

Wait no more, let’s go make some bubble tea!  

What is included in each kit: 

  1. 20 large-sized cups and straws
  1. 150g black tea leaves
  1. 1kg brown sugar 
  1. 3kg white pearls 
  1. 1kg Creamer
  1. Instruction Sheet 

Time: 1/3

The downside of making your own bubble tea, is that it is not as convenient as buying from the store. Here’s how much time I took:

To make

  • Pearls:  55min (30min of simmering, 25min of cooking)  
  • Milk tea: 20min 
  • Syrup: 15min 

Total time: 1h 20min   

As you can tell, much time is needed to make the pearls, so be sure to set aside enough time to make it. 

Taste  3/3 

It was fantastic! It tasted exactly the same as the original store bought liho milk tea. What’s better is that you can control the amount of sweetness of the tea with the syrup! 

Cost: 2/3

It’s so worth it! After some calculations, I have concluded that each cup (large) is about $2.40 only! The original price is around $3.60 or more. What do you think? Isn’t that a win? 


Overall, I think that this kit has the same great taste as store bought milk tea, and price wise, it is cheaper too! Furthermore, the milk tea kit lets you recreate your drink within the comfort of your own home, and lets you express your creativi-tea! (e.g. adjusting sugar levels, adding chocolate syrup)  

Thus, this drink is BRUTALLY APPROVED!
