It is undeniable that the bubble tea trend has returned once again. (Of course I remember during my teenager years when it was a must-have to have these drinks, until the bubble burst.)
“Bubble tea” is no longer the same as it is the past, as brands are finding ways to chut-pattern – from the rainbow coloured or ombre drinks, cheese milk tea, to the recent Brown Sugar milk craze in which many shops continue to enjoy long lines.
I wonder if the folks at HPB drink their bubble tea. Anyway, as 2019 is here, and everyone’s focus is on going healthy and losing weight once again, here’s a look at the Fruit Teas available in Singapore.
The Fruit Teas which are packed with fruits, looking all colourful in tall cups, make them attractive drink for takeaways.
My recommendation is always to go for the minimum sugar, so that you can taste the natural flavours of both the tea and sweetness from fruits.
If you want to sip on a stimulating tea with chunks of fruits in your cup, check out the following 15 places that serve some of the best Fruit Teas in Singapore.
ION Orchard Mall, 2 Orchard Turn, #B4-29, Singapore 238801 (Orchard MRT)
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm
Of the fruit tea range introduced by HEYTEA in Singapore, I suspect that the Grapefruit Boom Tea 满杯红柚 ($5.90) would end up to be one of the most popular.
The jasmine green tea (Aqua Green) has subtly sweet and fragrant notes, and the slices of grapefruit added shines through with that burst of sharp-fruitiness.
Good to know that all HEYTEA’s Fruity Boom tea are created using 100% natural fresh fruit juices only, with no additional fruit syrup or flavouring. HEYTEA Singapore 喜茶 (ION Orchard)
Nayuki – Vivocity
Vivocity, #01-207 1 Harbourfront Walk, Singapore 098585 (Harbourfront MRT)
Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
My favourite cup from the Nayuki’s “Supreme Fresh Fruit Tea” series is the Supreme Mixed Fruits 霸气缤纷水果 ($5.90).
It is especially refreshing with various elements from the different fruits – citrusy-sweetness from the orange slices, crisp-fruitiness from watermelon, and passionfruit providing that light tartness.
If not, you can get the Supreme Orange 霸气橙子 ($6.50). The cup that ensure you get your Vitamin C. Every cup actually consists of 2 whole oranges – a fruit one sliced, and the other freshly squeezed into juice.
This juice is then blast-frozen from Taiwan, for maximum nutrients and taste before it is imported into Singapore. Nayuki 奈雪の茶 (Vivocity)
Vivocity #01-100/101 1 Harbourfront Walk, Singapore 098585 (Harbourfront MRT)
Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
ARTRA’s Signature Fruit Tea ($8.20) is probably the fruit tea with the most variety of fruits in a single cup – all seven of them.
These include watermelon, rock melon, strawberries, mango, orange, passionfruit, and lime. Though yes, it is slightly pricey.
A mixture of orange juice and quality “Four Seasons Spring Oolong” 四季春 is used as the base – so named because the tea produces four flushes (or harvests) each year that still have the flavour of a spring flush.
The fragrant tea has a light floral aroma of spring flowers, and clean and sweet aftertaste, which makes it ultra-refreshing in the hot Singapore weather.
Also, the drink comes in a 1000cc cup, making it more value for its money, included generous chunks of fruits. ARTEA (Vivocity)

The Fruit Teas are known to comprise of fresh ingredients, with sliced fruits in full view within the cup.
Popular offerings include Green Tea Jelly with Lemon, Grapefruit with Jasmine, Pear with Pineapple, Passion Fruit with Aloe Vera and Cucumber, and Peach with Kalamansi and Passion Fruit.
The Peach with Kalamansi and Passion Fruit has that added slight sour and zingy-ness that I liked, making it a refreshing drink for the hot Singapore weather. MuYoo+ (Bedok Mall)

True Boss 醋頭家 is the first fruit vinegar specialty tea shop in Singapore, a brand which hails from Taiwan.

A recommended is the Apple Vinegar with Fruits ($3.90, $4.90). The fruits used to make the vinegar include apple, plum, peach, cranberry and grape (limited), to produce flavours which remind customers of the original fruit.
It was almost like drinking apple juice, but with that slight fruity tang of the vinegar. Yet it was not as sharp and sour say contrasted with Apple Cider vinegar. True Boss 醋頭家 (Northpoint City)

As compared to other well-known tea chains, U-Cha is somewhat underrated. They have limited options on their menu that might put off some tea-enthusiasts.
From cheese tea and pure tea to lychee black tea , U-Cha has your usual and unusual options. The recommended favourites include Jasmine Passion Fruit Tea ($4.80), Ruby Passion Fruit Tea ($.80) and Jasmine Grapefruit Tea ($4.80).

The collection of Fruit Teas on the menu uses either Four Seasons Tea from Taiwan, Royal Ceylon Black Tea from Sri Lanka or Green Tea paired with an assortment of fruits to create the different drinks.
My favourite was the Signature Fruit Tea ($5.90) which comes with Four Seasons Tea and fresh pineapple pulp as the base, topped with lime, watermelon, a slice of lemon and green apple.
Refreshing with a citrusy taste, the Signature Fruit Tea ($5.90) was strong, not that diluted in flavour. Teafolia (Tampines)
