The Boba Bar Bubble Tea Kit

Just look at the box its packed full of goodies to make some bubble tea.

This whole process was very new to me, as I only have had bubble tea from the shop so this was going to be a fun experience.

Time to take everything out and get bubbling.

Contents

So many flavours and bubbles etc this was going to be very cool

I looked at the instructions and followed them.

My choice was strawberry powder and peach bubbles, this was my end result.

This looked good, and now it was time to taste and see if my little mix tasted nice.

This was really good, the tea, strawberry and popping of the peach bubbles all worked together and it was finished very fast.

I decided I couldn’t just stop at one, as I still had more goodies to use so I waited till the weekend so I could enjoy it with my lunch.

This is what I used :

  • 1 Green Tea (3 packets included)
  • Apple flavouring
  • Mango bits

I am going to start by saying I am not a fan of Green tea, but after making this wow I loved the flavours. The green tea I only got hints, the apple flavour and the mango all of it worked amazingly together.

This was my 100% favourite, out of the two that I have mentioned in this post.

There is still some tea bags left and some flavours etc so I will be making more and seeing how they turn out.

My 3rd and fav

This was the third one I made and now this is 100% my fav!!!!

This is what I used : ⁠

  • 1 Green Tea (3 packets included)⁠
  • Mango and Honey flavouring⁠
  • Strawberry bits⁠

I could have easily had many of these!!!

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Boba Bar for sending me this bubble tea kit, its a great idea and I can’t fault it in anyway.

I loved making these at home, as it was exciting to try it and see how my flavours worked together.

If you like Bubble Tea or liked what I made and fancy trying it, then I highly recommend you visit their page and place an order and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed as its great fun and tastes great too.

TFI Munchy Sweet Box Gifted Extra : Review

As you have seen from my previous blog post I ordered a munchy box from Taste Irvine and they were very kind to gift me a few extras.

The Extra Goodies

The Goodies

Fanta (Mexican) Fresa : Strawberry

I have had Mexican cola but never Fanta Fresha, so I was very excited to try this.

I chilled it and since we have had good weather sat outside for dinner and had this.

Ohh I liked this! this was just sweet enough, had a nice strawberry flavour and I could have easily had another one.

Very refreshing, lovely taste and moreish.

Mixed Sweet Cup (Strawberry, Blue Raspberry, tango mix and cola cubes)

How cool does this look, lots of colours and am sure taste just as good as they look.

Ohh each of these were really good, the balls were nice flavoursome and chewy and the one that most of us associate with childhood…cola cubes mmmm so good!!

This was finished too fast, as they were just too easy to grab and eat.

Mixed Millions (Blackcurrant, strawberry, apple, bubble-gum and Vimto)

I had no idea what these were, so I had to ask.

I took one and then a small handful mmmm the flavours were nice and these were very chewy.

Since it was in a bag, and open you can probably guess my hand kept drifting and grabbing and drifting and grabbing till it was empty.

Galaxy : White Chocolate

I have recently started to enjoy white chocolate more, as I have made my white chocolate mint mousse a lot recently….remember to check out the recipe on my blog.

back to the this chocolate bar..

When I ordered my TFI box the guys at Taste Bistro said they would throw in this to try as at that point I posted another Galaxy chocolate bar so I was excited to try it.

Ohh this was nice, it was creamy, smooth and had a very nice white chocolate taste to it. Galaxy know how to do a good chocolate, and this was one 🙂

Chilled Mate Drink : Review

 T: @ChilledMate W: www.chilledmate.com


The guys over at Chilled Mate contacted me and asked if I would like to try their product. I always love trying new things, so I said yes and thanked them.

A few days later a package arrived at my work, and I opened and started to read about them and also try the product.

About

Chilled Maté – (pronounced mah-tay) is a refreshing drink based on an extraction from the Yerba Mate plant – (pronounced yer-bah mah-tay). The plant grows naturally in many regions of South America including in the Amazonian rainforest. The drink was originally steeped, similar to a tea and consumed by various native tribes within the Amazonian basin. To them the drink gave them both physical and mental alertness as well as being a great provider of vitamins and minerals.

After reading about this product, I was very interested in how it would taste as I was sent two types….one being natural and the other was Sicilian Lemon and Lime flavour.

The Taste…

Ok so before I continue the taste is how I felt about it, just like every drink or food its all down to you and how your taste palate is so you may hate it or you may like it…

I started with the Lemon and Lime can…

Firstly for this, the smell was nice, not overpowering but nice now it was time to take a drink.

Hmmm ok not what I was expecting but then again I didn’t know what to expect as never tried this. From the smell alone I expected something with a strong lemon and lime taste, but this was very subtle.

Ok so next the natural…

So I started with smelling it, similar smell to the first one but no fruitiness.

Ok, so this had a different taste to the first, no hints of citrus just well this drink in its natural form.

Both drinks quenched my thirst and didn’t make me any more thirsty like some drinks do. Flavour wise, natural was ok the lemon and lime was more my style…but I felt it could have had a slightly stronger lemon and lime flavour.

Overall

So for me, the flavour of Chilled Mate does need a little bit of getting used to, I tried this at work for a few days and I did enjoy it. Its very different to what I am used to, as I have a sweet tooth so normally its water or a fizzy drink.

Would I buy this? to be honest I would on the days I felt like a change from my normal water or fizzy drinks. Could I have it all the time? to be honest not really the flavour just didn’t hit the spot 100%.

If you fancy a change from your normal then check these guys out, and let me know what you think.
