Con­tem­po­rary tea brand Heytea opened its first over­seas out­let at Ion Or­chard yes­ter­day, tout­ing it­self as China’s most pop­u­lar tea brand and the “orig­i­nal in­ven­tor” of cheese tea.

Boast­ing more than 110 out­lets in China across 17 ma­jor cities such as Bei­jing, Guangzhou and Shen­zhen, Heytea has cre­ated some Sin­ga­pore-only of­fer­ings.

The key in­gre­di­ents it uses to cre­ate its bev­er­ages in­clude the best tea leaves from dif­fer­ent re­gions, fresh fruits, nat­u­ral rock sugar and nat­u­ral cheese.

The first sec­tion of the menu is Cheezo Tea ($4.50 to $6.60 nett).

A salty layer of frothy cheese foam helps to mask the tea’s bit­ter taste. King Fone and Ever Spring use oo­long tea leaves, while Aqua Green (green tea) comes in a faint bluish-green colour.

Flavours i n the Fruity Boom sec­tion ($5.50 to $6.80) in­clude Orange, Golden Pineap­ple, Lemon and Grape­fruit, where grape­fruit slices are added with a layer of shaved ice.

The Berry Mango se­ries ($6.90 to $8.70) has Straw­berry Cheezo (right) – go for the Very ver­sion (40 cents more) for more pulp – and Tangy Mango With Ice-Cream and Mango Cheezo.

The four clas­sic ice cream flavours are the tea ones ($2.80 to $4.80) and, avail­able only in Sin­ga­pore, D24 Durian and Salted Egg Yolk (both $4.80).

Most of the tea drinks, in­clud­ing Pure Aqua Green ($2.90) and Pure King Fone ($3.90), can be served hot too. Where: B4-29 Ion Or­chard Mall, 2 Or­chard Turn Open: 10am to 10pm daily Info: Go to www.face­book.com/ heytea.official Open­ing a restau­rant? Send the de­tails to stlife@sph.com.sg
