After all that outcry on social media following the closure of Gong Cha in Singapore, fans of the Taiwanese bubble tea brand can breathe easy again.
In a Facebook post on Monday (24 July), Gong Cha Singapore announced that the bubble tea brand will be back serving “you your favourite bubble tea very soon… .”
Food and beverage group RTG Holdings discontinued its franchise in Singapore and replaced all its 86 outlets with its own made-in Singapore creation.
Rebranded as LiHo, which means “How are you?” in Hokkien, the new brand aims to cater to local taste buds with its unique tea drinks such as cheese tea, which has “cheese mix” blended fresh milk, then scooped atop drinks such as Ovaltine or mango smoothies.
Simply put, it’s cheese foam on your tea.
