After American started the whole White Rabbit ice cream trend, several dessert shops in Malaysia have hopped on the bandwagon, and some even gone to further lengths by doing something a little bit different.
Local tea bar Yum Cha (which in Chinese Cantonese mean “to drink tea”) has collaborated with Muse Eatery to introduce the White Rabbit Milk Cha with Butterfly Pea Boba.

Having the retro candy in the milk tea is already a selling point, but another unique highlight of the drink is that it features blue boba balls, instead of the usual brown ones.
Apparently, the blue boba is actually made from butterfly pea flowers also known as Asian pigeon wings, which is commonly used to make the healthy herbal drink, butterfly pea tea.
The unique drink was launched during the weekend, and according to its social media post, Yum Cha has sold more than 1 thousand cups of White Rabbit Milk Cha for the past 2 days!
Open daily from 10am to 9pm, Yum Cha Malaysia is located at Kelana Parkview Tower in Petaling Jaya.
