Xiaomi’s Yoghurt – Kingsford NSW Bubble Tea Review

Xiaomi means “small rice” in Mandarin, a name perhaps more fitting for this purple rice yoghurt specialty store than the world’s largest mobile phone manufacturer (on whose product all of the photos on this blog have been taken).

Xiaomi Yoghurt’s restrictive opening times have meant that despite the many many times we have eaten out in Kingsford it has been very rare for us to see it open. I took the opportunity one evening to grab a mango tea yoghurt ($8) for myself and some purple rice yoghurts for my partner (4 for $20) and her friends and colleagues in the Prince of Wales intensive care unit.

I really enjoyed the mango tea yoghurt. It had heaps of thick fresh mango at the bottom, with a good mix of yoghurt. I particularly enjoyed the strong tea flavour in one layer of the drink. My only regret is that I drank it through the straw whilst driving in my car, and thus I wasn’t able to appreciate all of the layered complexities present in the drink.

My partner liked the purple tea yoghurt. She’s somewhat of a connoisseur, and found it no worse than its competitors but at a better price.

4/5

Hey Fresh – Kingsford NSW Restaurant Review

There are a number of great places for bubble tea in Kingsford. What a shame that none of them are open at 10PM on a Thursday.

Hey Fresh is co-located with Yang Guo Fu Ma La Tang on Kingsford’s main strip. It’s one of the last tea places to stay open every night, and with the ongoing two for 1 special we thought we’d give it ago.

What a mistake.

Neither the lychee or strawberry fruit teas tasted very good to us. I guess it’s difficult to describe but I think they just tasted way too artificial. I was surprised to find the lychee fruit tea pink in colour, as lychee flesh is generally white and only the shell has some redness to it.

Overall rating: I would not recommend to a friend or colleague.
