Happy Birthday R&B Tea Singapore. There is something for its fans too.
For its 3rd anniversary special, look out for promotions such as a birthday drink launch of Unicorn Dream – Cheesy Strawberry Smoothie (special price of $3 for September babies); $3 OFF specially-created R&B Tea-inspired nail stickers; and $3 Brown Sugar Boba Milk w/ Cheese Brûlée.
A summary of its brand story: R&B Tea is a tea concept founded by a Taiwanese named Bruce, who ventured into the tea business way back in 2005.
When he was working in Suzhou, China, he realised there weren’t many high-quality Taiwanese-style milk tea, and took the plunge to establish R&B Tea.
The drinks became popular as many found the feeling of comfort in them. From China, R&B Tea expanded to Singapore, Macau, Malaysia, and recently Indonesia.
This month, the brand celebrates its 3rd year of “Sharing a Cup of Happiness” with all tea lovers in Singapore.
To prepare a perfect tea blend, R&B Tea uses all-natural ingredients and quality oolong tea leaves imported from Taiwan.
Not only did they develop their own unique brown sugar recipe, they are also the only tea joint in town offering tea cream.
Explore their wide selection of drinks which includes their signature brown sugar series, fruit teas, milk teas, macchiato teas, yogi series and more. Here’s more about R&B Tea’s signature drinks:
Unicorn Dream – Cheesy Strawberry Smoothie ($5.90, $3 for Sep Babies)
Celebrate with a dreamy cup of ice-blended cheesy strawberry smoothie, launched exclusively for the month of September to celebrate R&B Tea’s 3rd birthday in Singapore.
Made creamier with fresh milk and cheese cream, this unicorn hues-inspired drink is born-ready for IG and your tummy.
The colourful heap of fruity pebbles completes the look and add a layer of crunch.
R&B Tea 3rd Birthday Bonus: September babies can enjoy the Unicorn Dream at a special price of $3 only (remember to bring a form of identification card during purchase).
Brown Sugar Boba Milk w/ Cheese Brûlée ($4.80)
A harmonious concoction of brown sugar pearls, fresh milk, cheese cream and caramelised brown sugar, this drink is an indulgent treat for its flavours and textures.
It starts with soft and chewy pearls slow-cooked in R&B Tea’s signature brown sugar.
Inside, the cup is coated with the same brown sugar syrup before pouring chilled fresh milk.
For a savoury topping, it spreads a velvety layer of cheese cream dusted with brown sugar bits. The torched sugar creates a crisp, caramelised crust.
There is no ‘correct’ way to drink this. A recommended method is to take a sip of the pearls first, to appreciate the softness and chewiness.
This is followed by sipping the cheese cream to appreciate the sweet-savoury flavours, then mix it up with the drink eventually.
R&B Tea 3rd Birthday Bonus: Never before, enjoy the Brown Sugar Boba Milk w/ Cheese Brûlée for only $3 from 19 – 21 Sep.
Roasted Oolong Macchiato Tea – Choice of Cheese or Tea Cream ($3.80 Reg, $4.50 Lrg)
As the only milk tea joint in town offering tea cream, R&B Tea offers roasted oolong tea topped with this silky tea-infused dollop of oolong tea cream.
The tea base is made from the finest oolong leaves from Dong Ding Mountain, Taiwan’s original oolong tea growing area.
Loving that fragrant aroma? That’s because of the hours of roasting-over-charcoal process that releases the leaves’ sweet smokiness.
A sprinkling of crumbled Oreos adds a playful finish.
Other than Roasted Oolong, Ceylon Red Tea and Peach Oolong, my other recommendation would be the No. 23 Oolong which is R&B Tea’s specialty tea blend of Minnan Oolong and Qing Xin Oolong grown on Taiwan’s Dong Ding Mountain.
Brown Sugar Boba Milk ($3.80 Reg, $4.50 Lrg)
Taste R&B Tea’s in-house brown sugar recipe, trend worthy for its aromatic, caramel flavour.
The pearls cooked for hours in this signature brown sugar syrup, transforms into a pile of sweet, soft, QQ chewy spheres of happiness.
Finally, chilled fresh milk is poured over to add creaminess to the cup.
Baby Luffy or Mighty Luffy ($5.80 Lrg, $6.80 XL)
As Singapore’s weather can be blazing hot especially during noontimes, you can take a break from the summer heat and refresh with this tea made with a mix of tropical fruits.
Using all-natural ingredients and fresh fruits, the hot weather-friendly Mighty Luffy is concocted with a litre (yes, ONE LITRE) of Hawaiian Red Tea with generous watermelon chunks and lime and lemon slices, infused with freshly-squeezed orange juice.
The citrus and fruity-sweet notes balance the natural taste of this full-bodied tea.
Peachy Crystal ($4.00)
Made with Peach Oolong as its base, this fruity tea drink is bejewelled with chewy crystal balls (white pearls) and sparkling tea jellies.
The natural sweetness of peaches shines through with peach puree swirled into the cup.
Devil’s Booster ($4.20)
This consists of fresh pineapple chunks and oranges, included with Peach Oolong which makes it a great ‘boost’ for the day.
All-In Milk Tea ($4.80 Lrg, $5.80 XL)
This is best for those who like to bao-ka-liao (have it all) and love to experience the different textures while having a drink.
The mega-cup is included with 4 toppings of golden pearls, pudding, aloe vera and crystal balls.
Fruit Yogi – Grape, Mango or Strawberry ($4.90)
R&B Tea’s Fruit Yogi Series come in three sweet and fruity flavours: Grape, Mango and Strawberry.
Whichever you fancy, each is an invigorating blend of fragrant tea, fruit juices, and creamy yogurt elegantly swirled together, with added chewy “crystal balls” which are like white pearls.
