Shiny Tea inside International Village is serving up soft serve ice cream. They still have their classic milk teas and other drinks. After work, I came with a few friends to begin the long weekend and to enjoy some ice cream. It was close to the office, so we thought it would be great for a visit. It got busy later into the evening.
There are about 14 seat inside, so it’s not great for really large groups. But, the food court is a few steps away, so you can go there instead to sit and eat.
Soft Serve Ice Cream “Italian Gelato”
They have 2 flavours on rotation – Peach Mango Green Tea and their Sri Lankan Black Tea. You get 1 sauce and toppings are extra. The flavours change every week, but they usually have one tea-based flavour and a fruity one. They let you taste the flavours before you purchase, which is nice.
There is only one size, so it’s still good for individual consumption or sharing.
I got the Sri Lankan Black Tea with white pearls, black pearls and condensed milk.
They did have suggested toppings and sauces, but I wasn’t feeling it, so I crafted my own and it turned out delicious.
My friend got the Peach Mango Green Tea with brown sugar honey and it was a bit on the sweet side.
There are lots of drinks on the menu to choose from, but my favourites are the milk teas.
My friend got the 3Q milk tea. It has black pearls, white pearls and coconut jelly.
