Teh Tarik can be a real emotive issue judging from the 79 heated responses from my last Teh Tarik post on Mr Tea. I wonder if there are more Teh drinkers than Kopi drinkers out there? Afterall, Tea is the most widely consumed beverage after water even though Coffee is the most widely traded commodity after petroleum. But I am sure if we did a poll, we would find more Coffee drinkers. So are you a coffee or tea person?
Anyway now that Mr Tea has raised the bar on Teh Tarik in Singapore, it is going to be hard to find one that is going to be able to beat it, at least in my books anyway. Those people who complained about Mr Tea said that they were too sweet and also some suspect that they added a little cardamom to the tea during the brewing process. Whatever it is, the tea does taste a little different from what we are used to in Singapore and that might be the cause of polarization amongst our readers.
If you are after Teh Tarik with a more local flavour, than this popular Mamak stall might be what you are looking for. They are popular for their Teh Halia Tarik, but on the day we tried it, the Teh Halia did not really hit the mark for me. However the Teh Tarik was very good. The tea was smooth and creamy and the tea flavour was robust without being to “waxy” 4.25/5
Very popular stall for Teh Tarik and I am sure there are lots of supporters amongst our readers.
