Gong Cha’s House Special Milk Coffee

Gong Cha may be popular for its signature milk teas, but milk teas are not the only drinks that are good. The "House Special Milk Coffee" is highly recommended too!

On our first try, we ordered "Less sugar (70%)" and regular ice, it turned out sweet and nice as it did not deter the coffee taste.

On our second try, we ordered "Little sugar (30%)" and it was not sweet at all.

Overall, Gong Cha’s House Special Milk Coffee is great like its milk teas, nothing short of distinctive and strong coffee flavor. For our next visit, maybe we’ll just order "Half sugar (50%)" for optimum taste.

Gong Cha’s House Special Milk Coffee retails at MYR 6.90. Available at Gong Cha Malaysia SS15 and The Gardens Mid Valley.

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.

Taiwan Company Recalls Melamine-contaminated Coffee

Recalling of products contaminated with Melamine which has been spread worldwide has now reached even coffee products.

According to Taiwan News, The King Car Co., a Taiwanese company, has reported that it has recalled packs of Mr. Brown instant coffee and milk tea containing contaminated milk powder imported from China.

The company says the products may contain small amounts of melamine, a chemical used in plastics. Melamine-tainted dairy products have already killed four children and sickened more than 6,200 others in China.

But King Car said on Sunday that its popular coffee product sold in steel cans is free of the chemical.
