Yifang Taiwan Fruit Tea
A range of fruit teas, tea lattes, traditional teas and new drink series will be doled out from the kitchen and made fresh upon order using imported ingredients from Taiwan. Tea leaves are freshly-picked from 140 hectares of tea gardens in Mingjian, Lugu and Sun Moon Lake, while the best seasonal fruits are selected from different regions: pineapples from Guanmiao, green plums from Xinyi Township, granadilla from Puli, roselle from Jinfeng, kumquat from Ilan, and cane from Shikou.
Fresh fruits are made into jam with no artificial flavourings or concentrated juice added, preserving their natural taste without any additives. For that added touch of sweetness, golden crystals of natural cane sugar are infused into the mix for a pleasant aftertaste that is not cloying like sucrose and fructose.
The Yifang Fruit Tea is a cup of premium mountain tea mixed with delicious pineapple jam, tangy passionfruit, and zesty lemon, apple and orange slices. For time-strapped office workers hungry for a filling guzzle instead of a post-lunch quencher, the lavender-hued Taro Latte with its freshly-mashed taro paired with fresh milk is a satisfying beverage.
The story of Yifang Taiwan Fruit Tea began in the kitchen. Married to a young farmer who toiled in the pineapple plantation to earn a livelihood, the founder’s grandmother, Yifang, decided to make him a refreshing pineapple drink using overripe pineapples which she braised into homemade jam. More than three generations later, her legacy lives on in more than 1,500 outlets in countries such as the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Dubai and the South East Asian region. The newest outlet in the Singapore CBD district is the first one to bring the spirit of Grandmother Yifang’s kitchen to the world.
