#SGTeaFest Exclusives and New Product Launches
In the sea of tea, look out for exclusive items such as Fossa Chocolate x Pekoe & Imp’s duckshit tea chocolate, featuring a premium ‘duck shit’ oolong tea from Guangdong, as well as The Road Less Travelled Tea Flight from Chariteas from Oregon, U.S, featuring teas such as grey dragon (white tea from Indonesia), amber woods (black tea from Indonesia) and red buffalo (oolong from Vietnam).
Other tea-licious new treats include Craft Tea Fox’s ready-to-drink bottled matcha and hojicha latte, Kindred Teas’ bottled cold-brewed rooibos orange with honey, Botana&Tea’s tisanes made with Greek red saffron, and Pukka from the UK’s range of caffeine-free organic herbal teas such as Love, made with chamomile, elderflower, lavender, licorice, lime flower, marigold and rose. And in a new addition to the festival this year, there’d be plenty of baubly bubble tea to keep away the sweltering heat. Woobbee’s herbal mint milk tea is just one icy thirst quencher to look forward to.
If you fancy keeping up with the latest tea-related technology, drop by teapasar’s booth, where you can have a preview of their new portable ProfilePrint—a rapid food scanner that verifies the authenticity of tea, and offers pairing suggestions with a variety of foods.
