Pokka Premium Milk Green Tea

Whenever I'm in Singapore I go to 7-Eleven to check out if there's anything new I should try out. I had sampled the Pokka Milk Tea last year and found it a tad too lemon-y for my taste, but that didn't stop me from drinking it every time I visited Singapore.

Anyway, so during my visit last month I was surprised to see a new offering by Pokka - Milk Green Tea. Green tea with milk? Green colored beverage? I had to go around 7-Eleven's aisles thrice, thinking whether I should sample it or not. I was apprehensive because I thought that green tea plus milk would be weird. I like drinking green tea as it is, the more bitter, the better.

So my curiosity won out and I got a bottle. My hotel was just a stone's throw away so I went back to my room to get some rest and sample the green tea with milk.

And, my oh my, I got the shock of my life. It was an awesome experience. I never expected that green tea would go so well with milk. I loved it because it had the right level of sweetness and drinking it made me feel refreshed and re-energized (I had just come in from Manila that day and took a long walk to the Singapore Philatelic Museum).

And guess what, I had one every single day I was in Singapore. =)

Dear local retailers/supermarkets/specialty shops, please, please import Pokka Milk Green Tea!!!
