World Of Teas

Sitting in a quaint café sipping tea and nibbling pretty bite- sized pastries are boast-worthy on social media. But let’s face it, high teas are not for everyone (well, at least not an everyday affair), cause ain’t nobody got time for 3 hours high tea sesh. We like our teas on the go for a quick fix. Lucky for us, there’s a world of teas out there, abundance of options in Singapore that aren’t fancy but are perfect antidotes to our weekday blues.

 

FROM THAILAND

Soi 55

Also known as Cha Yen, the Thai Iced Milk Tea may be found at street stalls across Thailand, but it is fast becoming a fashionable drink in Singapore!

Started as a humble stall in Golden Shoe Food Centre, Soi 55 has grown by leaps and bounds. Cha Yen from Soi 55 are not 100% authentic, as it’s been tweaked to suit local palates but hey, we actually like this better! Freshly brewed tea that is not too sweet like the traditional Cha Yen from Thailand, perfect drink to combat the blazing heat!

Did we mention? Drinks and snacks from Soi 55 can be brought into The Cathay Cineplex!

FROM JAPAN

Matchaya

 

Yep, you don’t have to hop onto the next plane to Japan to enjoy authentic Japanese desserts! Originated from Japan, matcha is highly valued for its sharp bite followed by lingering sweetness, great as a tea and dessert.

 

Matchaya is a modern Japanese Tea Shop that gather the best from Hokkaido, Hyogo, Kyoto, Osaka, Okinawa, Shizuoka and Uji. The soft serve is formulated from scratch with a golden ratio of fats, creaminess, flavor and aftertaste.

FROM TAIWAN

Gong Cha

 

This one needs no introduction. The one who pretty much reign the bubble tea empire. Originally from Kaohsiung, Gong Cha offers more than 80 different drink combinations with the finest freshly brewed tea, coffee and also juice concoctions.

 

The perfect after meal drink to help fight the attack of the food coma. We love being spoilt for choice and the flexibility of choosing the level of sweetness.
