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)

Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm
Calling themselves ‘honest folks’, the people of Teafolia wish to serve with the nutritiously rich cup of tea. The cafe has a casual air about it which makes it a great hangout spot.
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)
