Gong Cha Coming Back to Singapore

Pei Xia Ang

We have waited for such OOLONG time, and now Gong Cha is finally back! Here’s what to expect of this TEAriffic news!

1. Why Now?

Early this year, due to “franchise issues”, all Gong Cha outlets were converted to LiHo. But after receiving over a hundred applications for the master franchise to return to the market, Royal Tea Taiwan appointed a new master franchisee, Gong Cha (Singapore).

Gong Cha Singapore will be under the leadership of Mr Kang Puay Seng, the co-founder and former managing director of Mr Bean food and beverage chain.

2. What Drinks?

We are as yet unable to confirm if most of our favourite drinks will be on the menu, but you’ll definitely see popular ones like Alisan Milk Foam Tea and Earl Grey Milk Tea on the menu.

Fingers crossed, I’m hoping that their Apple Black Tea will be back. I have been trying to look for a drink as fruity and as refreshing at other bubble tea outlets, but have been unsuccessful so far.

On top of the regular crowd favourites, Gong Cha is bringing in drinks like Sweet Potato Milk Tea, Brown Sugar Fresh Milk Oolong, and Matcha with Red Bean.

3.Where?

Gong Cha will be opening their flagship store on 1st December at 12pm. For the time being, their only outlet is located at SingPost Centre. Fans can expect more outlets in the following months.

THE PROGRAMME

There is definitely going to be lots to see and do at this year’s Singapore Coffee Festival. Besides merely enjoying your cuppa, learn how to brew the perfect cup of joe by signing up for one of the Lab Sessions offered!

The Straits Times, Bettr Barista and Common Man Coffee organised The Lab Sessions last year. These sessions focused on topics like barista skills, latte art, starting a café, and chocolate pairings.

MORE THAN A ONE-OFF FESTIVAL 

“Design The Cup” competition – Entrants submitted illustrations, in the hopes of getting their illustration featured on 6,000 coffee cups for the festival.

The winning illustration, above, is by local Temasek Polytechnic student Ellen Chee.

10 lucky winners were given the opportunity to visit 4 local café’s to enjoy and sample great coffee. Not to mention hanging out with local Radio DJ Desiree Lai! (Jealous much!). The winners also got to take a behind the scenes look at what goes into the perfect cup of coffee. The baristas also taught them some neat tips and tricks!
