All the rage about cheese tea and the original inventor of the cheese tea trend is finally coming to Singapore, and it is none other than OG tea brand, HEYTEA.
HEYTEA first started out as a humble tea shop in the Guangdong province in 2012. Since then, the brand has expanded to more than a hundred shops in China including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhen and Shenzhen—all of which have garnered massive queues that can go up to 7 hours long.
Dedicated to serving high-quality brews made using only the freshest and top-quality ingredients, HEYTEA leaves little to wonder as to why it is the most highly sought-after tea brand in China—and soon, Singapore.
HEYTEA is opening its first-ever overseas outpost outside of mainland China here in Singapore’s ION Orchard on 10th November at 10am. And to show their sincerity and love for the Singapore audience, they are opening with a bang so expect 1-for-1 promotion and goodie bags to be given away for the first 3 days. Here is a preview of the menu!
There is often debate surrounding whether freshly brewed coffee or instant coffee is better. Some argue that having coffee in powdered form comprises the taste, satisfaction and authenticity of the beverage itself while others rather enjoy the convenience. Finding yourself on the fence? Perhaps with OLDTOWN White Coffee’s latest blend, you just might favour instant for a change.
Nicely encapsulating all the aspects of any good brew with the added advantage of being so easy to whip up, OLDTOWN White Coffee proudly presents its Enrich variety as part of their new Black Series line of instant, caffeinated beverages.
The brand never failed to impress us with their innovation, consistency and superb quality of their coffee mixes in the past, and this time, it’s no different.
Boasting subtle notes of fruit and chocolate, the flavour itself is nuanced yet bold. Smooth with a flavour profile that excites in a way regular instant coffee can’t, we dare say that we’ve found a coffee brand to stock our pantry with—and here’s why we believe you will too.
