I'm puzzled as to why they even bothered though - the staff is the same, and the drinks are still served using plastic cups with 'Tea Shop 168' labels printed on them. Even their name of Google Maps remains the same.
Though I can't speak for the other items, the Pudding Black Milk Tea that I had ordered bore no resemblance whatsoever to Bubble Republic's version. Instead of a subtly sweet milk tea with a hint of pudding flavour, I received something along the lines of stale pudding mix that had been thinned out with water and a bit of milk. (Sounds lovely doesn't it?)
We soon went back as two of us had class afterwards.
