The Beau-tea in the Vernacular for Singaplural 2017 is our newest creation - No. 835, Seri Kaya. Crafted out of Victor's insatiable thirst for the aromatic Pandan, Seri Kaya is a blend of Japanese sencha, black tea, pandan leaves and coconut pieces.
The packaging label is designed by MessyMsxi. She went islandwide picking twigs and weathered leaves that we frequently overlook in our daily lives to give them a new beauty and purpose.
Seri Kaya (its namesake) is originally a coconut jam concocted by combining coconut, eggs, sugar and pandan leaves. Literally, Kaya means rich in Bahasa Melayu referring to the custard-like texture of the spread. Kaya is typically enjoyed with toast and a Teh Tarik or Kopi.
Pandan leaves has been one of Victor’s favourite ingredients in tea blending with Seri Kaya being ETTE TEA’s 6th Pandan edition.
Kebaya Blue is therefore a construct of rustic ingredients used in many traditional food and desserts in Singapore & South East Asia - lemongrass, butterfly blue pea, lemon verbena & bael fruit. 100% caffeine-free.
Chicken Rice is highly recognised as the national dish of Singapore. The dish is adapted from the early Chinese immigrants hailing from Hainan province of Southern China.
Chicken Rice is now available as tea, hand blended by Victor with the savoury Kukicha layered with lemongrass, ginger and fragrant pandan.
This Christmas, instead of longing for snowball fights or skating on a frozen lake, have a bowl of Ice Kacang tea to bring a one of a kind tropical-styled Yuletide mood to cool the heat and warm your heart.
Ice Kacang, or shaved ice, is a popular dessert commonly sold by street vendors in Southeast Asia. Everyone loves the sweet-tasting shaved ice, with numerous toppings such as red beans, creamy sweet corn, grass jelly, attap chee (palm nuts) and an array of syrup with colours of the rainbow. Nothing beats the delightful and pleasing icy dessert that soothe the throat and cools down the body on a hot day.
As our grand finale for 2016, we out-do ourselves with the introduction of the Ice Kacang tea blend, recommended to have it iced with syrup & condensed milk (just kidding).
Ice Kacang is a dessert tea blend of Japanese Sencha, dried grapes, safflower,
forget-me-not flowers and flavouring.
