Taiwan’s bubble tea brand Xing Fu Tang will officially open for operation in Singapore on Friday, 28 June 2019 at Century Square, bringing its authentic stir-fried Brown Sugar Boba Milk to fans in Singapore. With over 90 locations in Taiwan, Japan, Canada, and Hong Kong, this outlet marks the brand’s first foray into Singapore and is one of the four store openings in the pipeline over the next six months.
This opening also comes on the back of its successful pop-up held at Takashimaya earlier this month, which saw over 1,500 cups sold daily. In celebration of this occasion, the first 188 cups of Brown Sugar Boba Milk will be given away on the grand opening day.
An elevation of the regular bubble tea drink, the chain’s tapioca pearls are stir-fried in natural raw brown sugar for an extra chewy bite, then topped off with a layer of caramelised brown sugar for a smoky charcoal kick. Its drinks also utilise no preservatives, artificial flavourings or additives.
Quali-tea menu offerings that look as good as they taste
For customers who prefer something light and refreshing, Xing Fu Tang’s Mango Smoothie & Rabbit Panna Cotta ($6.90) is a tasty concoction of pannacotta and mango smoothie chock-full of chewy pink pearls. Other signature drinks on the menu include Matcha Boba Milk ($5.90), Soda and Handmade Jelly ($5.30) and Grapefruit Green Tea ($5.90).
Milking the surging demand for bubble tea in Asia
Although bubble tea was invented over 30 years ago, demand for the drink shows no sign of slowing down, with more chains spreading through Asia, China, U.K.and the U.S.A. It’s a deep cultural symbol for young people of Asian heritage along with an explosion in variations both contribute to the exponential growth in the popularity of bubble tea, and this phenomenon is evident from the mushrooming of new chains in Singapore over the past decade.
Xing Fu Tang is open from 11 AM to 10 PM daily at 2 Tampines Central 5, #01-22, Century Square Singapore 529509.
