Thai-everything has been a huge hit among Singaporeans in the past couple of years.
With the incredible turnout at Artbox Singapore in March, and with the hype constantly brewing around food and drink trends coming out of the country, Singaporeans’ love for all things Thai is plain to see.
If you’re a fan of Thai milk tea, Cha Tra Mue is a brand you’ll recognise. You’ve probably seen its logo on tea tins and bags either stowed away on a high shelf, or found sitting out in the open whenever you order some of the delicious orange coloured tea.
A New Tea Trend In Thailand
Cha Tra Mue, which literally translates into ‘Number One Tea’, recently kicked off a brand new tea trend in Thailand – a rose tea drink, which is tea brewed from rose petals.
The tea brand has released 3 spins on the fragrant floral tea.
These teas come in pretty hues of pink and are served in plastic cups with a romantic floral design that perfectly complements the drink. Super Insta-worthy, you’ll want to get plenty of fun shots of your drink before you start downing these.
The Rose Milk Tea is the only milk tea of the lot, with a milky pink appearance and the light aroma of rose.
If refreshing is what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in the Lychee Rose Tea, which combines the fragrance of rose with the light sweetness of lychee.
Finally, there is the Honey Rose Tea, which is sweeter than the other two. As with the other drinks, the rose fragrance comes through strongly, making this the perfect cooling drink on a warm day in Singapore’s heat!
Not just a pretty drink, the rose in the tea comes packed with benefits according to Cha Tra Mue. Apparently, some of the benefits of rose include detoxification, laxative effects for those with constipation and weight loss.
Just Our Cup Of Tea
Cha Tra Mue currently has 4 outlets in Singapore: Far East Square, Tanjong Pagar XChange, Clifford Center, and Savourworld.
Conveniently located so you can order a cup and take it with on the go, break away from your usual bubble tea order and opt for this pretty pink drink instead!
