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.
The pineapple tart is a bite-sized flat pastry that is topped by a sweet pineapple confiture, which also comes in rounded forms with the same filling. It is a favourite snack in parts of Southeast Asia, and is a must-have in all homes during the Lunar New Year.
The significance of pineapple is because the Chinese words for pineapple has a similar sound of "good luck coming", hence it is much welcomed during this festival that is full of tradition and symbolism. For the same reason, the pineapple is also a popular traditional feng shui symbol of wealth, fortune, and prosperity.
We present to you our pineapple tart in a cup, a festive blend for the season consisting of black tea, caramel, dried pineapple and marigold flowers. A sip of the pineapple tea will bring you all the flavours, but without the calories!

Warm your heart this Christmas holiday with a bowl of our spiced Orh Nee tea, lovingly created especially with your family in mind.
Orh Nee is a popular teochew dessert made with yam paste, garnished with steamed pumpkin puree and boiled gingko nuts. The delectable dessert is normally reserved for special occasions, as it takes time and effort to prepare. Thus it is not commonly available even at local dessert stalls.
A Teochew tradition - it is customary to serve Orh Nee as the last course especially at restaurants catered to delicacies of the dialect group. We present to you our special Orh Nee tea blend to celebrate our achievements, and usher in the new year.
No. 842 Orh Nee is a blend of sencha, black tea, dried persimmon, forget-me-not flowers and natural flavouring.
