You can choose the sugar level, i.e. No sugar (0%), Little sugar (30%), Half sugar (50%), Less sugar (70%) and Full sugar (100%) and how much ice you want, i.e. "Normal", "Less Ice" or "No Ice" I chose 30% sugar level and "Normal Ice" and the level of sweetness is still there but it’s lot healthier.

There are three ways to sip the milk tea.

  1. Sip the freshly brewed tea through the milk froth without a straw.
  2. Slurp some tea followed by the milk through the straw for a smooth aftertaste.
  3. Stir and enjoy a perfect blend of milky froth and aromatic tea.

But since I brought it back to my office and hence, the drink got mixed up by itself. Still, the milk green tea is quite tantalizing and refreshing.

Starbucks Mocha Ice Cream Bar is a satisfying indulgence from start to finish. The Mocha Bar combines both coffee and chocolate and is rich and creamy which reminds me of Mocha Frappuccino drink. While the Coffee Bar is as delectable with stronger coffee flavor and aroma.

Coffee Bean’s Nutty Delight Ice Blended

Coffee Bean’s Nutty Delight Ice Blended

Coffee Bean’s Nutty Delight Ice Blended, currently available as a promotion for Ramadan, is a unique non-coffee ice-blended. Made from roasted pistachio, this drink is nutty and sweet and may not suit everyone as it is a non-coffee and it’s full of nuts. Our verdict: it’s a little bit on the sweet side. It’s suitable as a “buka puasa” drink together with dates but since Ramadan is already over, there’s no reason to drink this anymore.

As usual, like other promos, Coffee Bean Nutty Delight Ice Blended is available at Coffee Bean for a limited time only.

Coffee Bean’s Red Bean Ice-Blended Drink

Red Bean Ice-Blended Drink is Coffee Bean’s new drink for this festive season. Just in time for Lunar New Year’s celebration, Coffee Bean has come out with a drink which is purely made of red beans and it’s called Red Bean Ice-Blended. Red Bean Ice-Blended is a blend of red beans mixed with blended red beans and skimmed milk. The first sip may taste weird but the subsequent sips are heavenly and satisfying, it’s almost like drinking icy-cold red beans. Unlike Starbucks’ Azuki Frappuccino, Coffee Bean’s version taste a lot better and also it’s wonderful as a non-coffee drink whereas Starbucks Azuki Frappuccino fails as a non-coffee drink.

Retailing at RM 12.00, Coffee Bean Card holders get RM 2.00 off! This drink is only available for a limited period, so visit the nearest Coffee Bean stores now. It is one of the most tantalizing non-coffee drinks at Coffee Bean, so you won’t want to miss it!

Coffee Bean’s Banana Dates Ice-Blended

Coffee Bean’s Banana Dates Ice-Blended

Ramadan is here and Coffee Bean has introduced Banana Dates Ice-Blended, a refreshing drink with the mix of bananas and dates!

It has a strong flavor of bananas but the sweetness of the dates has somewhat spoiled the authentic taste of banana. Sadly, but it’s not a banana drink, it’s a Ramadan drink. Coffee Bean should have created a separate drink for date lovers, like how Starbucks did with Ramadan Frappuccino (which is only available in the Middle East). I would prefer Starbucks Banana Java Chip Frappuccino anytime — only if they still have it.

Retailing at RM 12.00, Coffee Bean Card holders get RM 2.00 off! This drink is only available for Ramadan.

Starbucks’ Pomegranate Peach Frappuccino Blended Juice Drink is refreshing and tasty and somewhat it is also healthy as pomegranate is ranked the healthiest fruit juice.

It is the best choice of drink especially during a hot sunny day. Pomegranate Peach Frappuccino Blended Juice Drink soothes the thirst and makes you feel as though as you are chilling out at the beach.

MOF’s Mocha Frappe & Hot Chocolate

MOF Japanese Sweet & Coffee recently opened its cafe in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And it sure has a wide range of sweets and of course, coffee!

MOF’s Mocha Frappe is delicious and is rich with chocolate bits and has very strong coffee flavor. I’ll be tempted to buy MOF’s Mocha Frappe than any of the Starbucks Frappuccino drinks as it is not only taste better but it’s also cheaper, at RM 10.00 (tax-free!).

MOF’s Hot Chocolate
MOF’s Hot Chocolate

MOF’s Hot Chocolate comes with Gyuuhi, one kind of Japanese sweets, is, however less tasty. I would prefer Starbucks’ Hot Chocolate anytime over this.

Coffee Bean’s Pina Colada Ice-Blended

Coffee Bean Pina Colada is back! This drink is surely delicious.
