BlackBall Original Taiwanese Tea & Dessert

Dear Taiwanese dessert lovers! Have you heard about this new taiwanese dessert shop called the Blackball? If you are staying around Subang SS15 or always hang out at Asia Cafe in Subang, I'm sure you won't miss this particular shop. It was back in the year 2006 where Blackball first started and it has bloomed up in a very short time standing as one of the biggest dessert chains in Taipei with over 20 outlets and still expanding. Now, we can all have experience the awesome and original Taiwanese tea and dessert at the first BlackBall outlet in Malaysia which is located in Subang SS15 as I had mention earlier.

Red Bean Ice with Barley and Lotus Seed (RM6.50) add Sky Pearl (RM1.00)
The owner claimed that they use only handmade taro balls with natural ingredients, promising every customer that it is the most chewy taro balls have ever tasted.
By combining the various type of Original Taiwanese Tea selections with the dessert, customers can either choose to have a light drink or to have a bowl of icy cold or hot but refreshing dessert in Blackball.

Cranberry Crushed Ice with Milk (RM6.50) add Aloe Vera (RM1)

BlackBall Signature with Brown Sugar Jelly and Sweetened Bean (RM6.50)
The owner explained that their 'Xian Cao' is the finest quality 'Xian Cao' imported directly from Guan Xi, producing top notch quality 'Xian Cao' tea and grass jelly, it gives the heavenly taste we will never find in other dessert chains... literally they all tasted the same to me! xD

Grass Jelly Ice with brown sugar and sweetened bean (RM6.50)

I personally ordered this because of the name which attracted me, 
Jiu Fen Taro Ball Crushed Ice (RM6.50). I guess the variety of toppings tasted pretty well but the crushed ice wasn't smooth enough. As it melts, it gets harden and quite difficult to bite on.

Grass Jelly Hot with Green Bean and Barley (RM6.50)


Their tea, nlike others, the tea they serve/use is freshly brewed on site everyday. For every four hours they will change their high quality tea leaves to serve every customer with the freshest and the finest tea. I personally like the 3Q Passion Fruit Green Tea the most... RM5.90 per cup with toppings.

The ladies food paparazzi in action! Snap snap snap! :D

What I like most about Blackball is their Taroballs and Black Pearl. Price wise, quite competitive and of course they are way better than ZenQ!

What they can improve on is, their crushed ice and also maybe the size of the bowl. When the crushed ice melted, it seems to be almost overflow.

Although the famous Snowflake is just right beside them but their winning point is that the location of this floor is ground floor and most family members and elder people would rather settle down at Blackball instead of taking the stairs up to Snowflake.

By the way, there's one branch opening soon at Sri Petaling so watch out for their special promotion!
