Edith Patisserie has created Bubble Tea Tarts (S$8.50) that are made of handmade almond tart shells and a luscious tea-infused ganache that come in three flavours: Milk Tea, Thai Milk Tea and Matcha. The highlight of this dessert is, of course, the boba tea pearls that add an element of delightful chewiness and excitement to the decadent tart.

Not only are these tarts highly Instagram-worthy, but they are also incredibly gooey and a satisfying treat that is worth all the calories.
