      Probably less sugar than Boost Juice though (where a lot of their drinks have the same or more sugar than a can of Coke.) That being said, I am a fan of the brown sugar with milk pearls in milk tea. At least with these tea places you can ask for 0, 25%, 50%, 75% sugar. Not a fan of the tea powders (as you don't know hwhat sort of crap goes into that) so you have to investigate which brands brew real tea on site and which just use powder. They do seem to add some flavoured syrup in of the particular fruit you ordered into the drink too. Just have to ask to check. Paying at least $6.50 for a brewed tea with fruit flavouring, milk or cheese foam, or pieces of fruit and some jelly bits is just a rip off in my opinion. The drink would cost no more than a $1 inc all expenses to make. Also the amount of waste plastic these places generate. I'm definitely no greenie, but the cups, lids, little plastic tab thing on the lid, the large plastic straws all individually sealed in plastic, and then a lot of brands will even put the drink and straw in a plastic bag for you. And if there is a bin near you will see it overflowing with plastic bags and cups. Interestingly, Asians don't tend to drink that much milk, and if anything this is getting the kids to drink way more milk than they normally do, especially if they order the milk with brown sugar syrup and pearls which seems to be all the rage at the moment. And that drink probably has the same amount of sugar as Milo etc.

        If you ask for less ice in the pearl milk tea do they just put more water instead?

        I agree that the prices for bubble/milk tea in Oz is far too overpriced compared to what you’d get in Asia.

          Actually in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China the prices are quite similar surprisingly…well from what I've seen anyway

            @Sammyboy: Having just come back from a trip to HK/China (back last December), the prices overseas are significantly cheaper. From a chain store that's available in Aus like Coco or Happy Lemon, you can get a basic normal sized drink for about $2AUD

            •  

              @OzBarAnon: I went Singapore last year, I would probably have been better saying that anything with the cheese or milk foam or the deluxe type smoothies are around $5 to $6. The normal teas are super cheap though around the $3 mark. Here we are getting ripped off on the normal teas, as they just seem to have everything over $6. Lu Jiao Xiang in HK, they were charging $28HK (Approx $5 AUS) for their famous milk with brown sugar and pearls. There's finally one of those in High Point in VIC, but its on the other side of town for me and not worth the travel lol

                @Sammyboy: I rarely drink bubble tea (probably consumed more in my 3 week trip overseas than I have in the past 3 years in AUS), so I'm only familiar with the pricing on the basic stuff

            @Sammyboy: In Taiwan, where a lot of this stuff comes from, Pearl Milk Tea is 40-50NTD, so about $1.80 to $2.20. This was for chains like Coco and Gong Cha.

        Does Boost add sugar, or is it natural sugars from the fruit and juice itself?

        •  

          They add sugar to some of the smoothies. Regardless of natural fruit sugar or not…will still result in a rather high kilojoule count

      •  

        With Gong Cha, you can ask for them to use actual milk or soy milk and they won't charge you extra.

        Sweet enough that studies (bored researchers) have been done! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5217910/)

        Boost is definately worse though in a number of their drinks

        "I'm definitely no greenie, but"

        Why would you even need to say this? Are you ashamed of being concerned about plastic? Is there something wrong with that?

    I've tried a few of these kinds of places, each time I get sick / the shits a few hours later.
    I suggest not trying it on a work day.

      Interesting. Having the same flavours at each one? Gotta be something in there your body doesn't like.

      •  

        Having the same flavours at each one?

        I've tried 3 or 4 flavours (I might have repeated one).

        Gotta be something in there your body doesn't like.

        Yeah, I think so. I googled it and it doesn't seem like a common problem.

        It's a shame because I like these things while I'm drinking them.

          Maybe lactose intolerance if you're having the milk ones? Besides the usual milk, tea and flavourings is fructose syrup that could do it?
