I was shopping at Suntec City when I noticed the poster of “TP-Tea” announcing they are the “1st Halal-certified Taiwanese bubble tea in Singapore”. (By the way, Hollin Singapore also just opened at Suntec City.)
There were a lot of questions going through my mind, one of which includes ”So what happens to the non-Halal ones?”
TP-Tea 茶湯會 is under Chun Shui Tang 春水堂 – known to be the shop which started Taiwanese bubble tea; and currently has over 300 outlets across the world.
Its first outlet is located at Changi Airport Terminal 2 Departure Hall , right next to Krispy Kreme and Llao Llao, and is considered Singapore’s FIRST 24 hours Taiwanese Bubble Tea Shop.
Having the Halal-certification makes sure that the all ingredients are from Halal sources, from the tea, matcha, pearls to jellies; and that also includes the entire process of managing ingredients.
When I checked with staff from the store, it was mentioned that even though Bubble Tea is considered “low risk” even if not certified, it provides a peace-of-mind to Muslim customers.
The best-sellers in the store include the Tie Guan Yin Tea Latte ($4.60), Pearl Black Tea Latte with Red Bean ($5.30), Lemon Premium Green Tea ($3.60), and Pearl Milk Tea ($3.90).
Its Pearl Milk Tea Soft-serve Ice Cream ($3.60) is also very popular.
The Tie Guan Yin Tea Latte ($4.60), uses a premium grade of Oolong Tea, and has probably one of the strongest tea aroma of all the bubble tea drinks in Singapore.
Some people may find this strange, and the slight bitterness may not appeal. I would describe the sensation as mixing good Chinese tea (you would have at some hotel banquets) with milk.
I think the drink takes time to grow on you.
