Food trends come and go quickly, but bubble teas remain a constant fuel for Singaporeans. Here’s Charlie Tea – the newest kid on the block and they may give some of the top bubble tea players a run for their money. If you ask me what makes this new addition different from the rest – read on to find out more.
Firstly, Charlie Tea is backed by an award-winning F&B group – BreadTalk that owns and franchise the largest portfolio of restaurant brands and bakery outlets locally and globally. You may see more outlets and new concepts coming your way!
Secondly, what Charlie Tea is bringing to the table is to offer a wide variety of freshly-brewed tea, fruit and bubble tea beverages in various forms, such as pure, sparkling, cultured milk-based and ice-blended. There’s over 30 options on the menu – you can only be spoilt for choice.
Thirdly, Charlie Tea offers French-style Danishes of a dozen varieties alongside with selected new bakes from BreadTalk bakery. Now who says that you can’t have bubble tea and freshly baked goods together! To me, this is the best of both worlds.
Fourthly and lastly, you will be surprised with the price point of Charlie Tea‘s products. The lowest priced tea beverage start from $2.50 for the Pure Tea Series to not more than $4.80 for the Slushie+ Series, while the sweet and savoury baked treats range between $2.00 to $3.60. Bundle Charlie set that include a choice of Danish and a beverage is just only $5.50 – what a steal!
Special mention on the gift items on sale, you can opt for tea gift sets that retail between $4.00 to $15.00. Choose from either Green Jade or Mount Wu (oolong tea) – the loose tea leaves of premium quality are packaged in sleek, chic glass tubes to showcase the raw beauty of the leaves, tinged in the palette of the season’s colours.
If you are a fan of Asian Mung Bean cakes, you can get them in a box of six at $5.20, available in three flavours – original, earl grey and rose.
