Get to Know Your Tea

Finding great tea is like treasure hunt.

To find that elusive liquid golden goodness, one needs to be brave to try any tea (how about tea grown in bat’s cave as Liu An in China), curious (how would tea tastes mixing with butter, as in Suutei tsai from Mongolia), and critical but perhaps not rigid (jasmine green tea naturally scented with layering flowers are far better than jasmine flavour sprayed on).

The mission of finding great teas is both exciting and exhausting, as a tea could taste divine one year, and totally mediocre the next, due to seasonal and weather conditions.

To make the mission to find more fun, let us introduce you to 10 most popular tea. Getting to know what you are drinking, so your tea journey can be more enjoyable.

  1. Chai Masala / Spicy Chai (Black) – popular Indian drink – great hot or cold. Traditionally, Chai is made super strong before adding milk and honey/sweetener. Our Chai is good with milk and Spicy Chai is more suited to customers prefers drinking chai without milk.
  2. Green Tea with Jasmine (Green) – the kind of tea a Yum Cha restaurant typically serves – but we offer a much better grade. Many love it after meal for digestion.
  3. Hibiscus (Herbal) – Tartish taste (like Ribena without sugar) and stunning ruby colour infusion. Known to help reduce blood pressure. Great hot or iced.
  4. Ginger Kiss (Herbal) – Ginger tea gets the tick from many people from different cultural background and age group. It is great for digestion with a mellow citrusy zing.
