The taste Test

French-Style Milk Tea

Honestly, we have no idea where the French comes from but the taste of this flavour is superb. There is a different hint of milk tea for this French-style milk tea. Even with one sachet of condensed milk, the sweetness is bearable. You can definitely taste the White Rabbit-ness in this drink. It’s a pleasant sip.

Sea Salt and Cheese

This is a very odd flavour to us. You can actually smell the cheesy-ness of the drink after you’ve made it. As for the taste, there is the tinge of White Rabbit-ness and subtle sea salt too. It also gives off the ‘too much of it, can give you a tummy ache’ vibe.

White Peach Oolong Tea

At first sip, you can taste the fruity notes of peach sweetness of the peach as stated as the flavour. The peach smell was strong too. Even with the sweetness from the condensed milk and the flavouring, the sweetness is bearable. It’s an interesting Oolong taste that we’ve never tried before. And the base – White Rabbit-ness – is prominent.

Genki Black Tea

Honestly, this one doesn’t taste unique at all. There’s a prominent milk tea and White Rabbit tinge to it. The black tea of the drink couldn’t be tasted. There isn’t much to say about this flavour because it really didn’t live up to its name.

In conclusion, these drinks were easy to make and if you want something fun and DIY, you can definitely get them off the shelves of NTUC Finest. However, with the craze over them, there might not be any stock left. You can try CAROUSELL but be prepared for a marked up price.

Generally, all the flavours have a similar base taste and that would be the milky touch of White Rabbit. We would recommend the drink them cold but if you like them as a hot drink, it could work too.
