In case you’ve missed it, Loob Holding is in the midst of filing for a leave to appeal to the Federal Court so as to remain operating in Malaysia. Whilst pending the verdict and uncertainty on whether Tealive will remain in Malaysia, you don’t have to do without your bubble tea fix.

There are several other bubble tea brands in KL and frankly, now is their time to shine, as the fate of one of the bubble tea giants in Malaysia hangs in the balance. Here’re 8 other bubble tea brands to try out and who knows? You might just find your new favourite amongst ’em. 😉

1. The Bubble Tea Shop

The Bubble Tea Shop is a fast food concept café similar to most bubble tea brands in Malaysia. Guests can opt to dine in or take away their drinks to enjoy at their own space and time. Their menu includes bubble teas, iced tea fusions and loose leaf cold tea blends. Other than that, they also have a variety of desserts on the menu and these are served daily at the café. Unlike the bubble tea chain outlets in Malaysia, The Bubble Tea Shop is a standalone brand with a single outlet in Taman Salak Selatan.

What sets Royaltea apart from the other bubble tea brands in this list is that it is the first authentic cheese tea brand to hit KL shores. The cheese foam drink series includes fruity ones like Pineapple Cheese and indulgent ones like Oreo Cheese Milk Tea. The brand currently has 130 outlets in China and the tea used in the beverages are from Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan so you know that the drinks you’re getting are legit!

Did you know that Gong Cha is actually the term used in the ancient act of offering tea to the royalty, such as the Emperor of China? When using the term Gong Cha as their brand name, they hope to offer only the best quality tea to their customers, much like how they would with the royalty. Best known for its pearl milk tea, perhaps Gong Cha’s drinks can beat out Tealive’s? 😛

8. The Alley Kuala Lumpur

The Alley is a brand which is hard to miss. With the deer’s antlers as its logo, this brand sets itself apart from other bubble tea brands. The Alley is serious about their stuff and they create their own sugar cane syrup and pearls. In fact, you might just be able to watch the staff behind The Alley whipping up the pearls from scratch.
