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!
