New Pop-up Coffee And Tea Fair At Great World City Featuring Kaya Toast-inspired Tea, Free Sampling And More

6th September 2019

Great World City’s coffee and tea fair

Kopi and teh are staples to my weekday mornings. The weekends, however, are left for the good stuff, and that means a perfectly pulled espresso shot and well-blended teas. If you love sipping tea as much as you love spilling it, then you must check out Great World Citys Life Is Brewtiful event that’s happening from 6 to 15 September 2019. There you will find booths showcasing a curated range of coffee and tea, as well as workshops to up your coffee knowledge. Here are five you won’t want to miss!

1. Petale Bloom Tea

Petale Bloom Tea

Drinking Petale Bloom Tea’s creations is an experience that goes beyond mere taste. Hand-sewing together tea leaves and flowers into tiny balls, the blooming tea makes for an exquisite sight when they unfurl into a beautiful flower after being submerged in hot water. 

Grab a cup during the pop-up at $6, or buy some to bring home from $10 for two tea balls. They have a wide variety of unique blends, and my personal favourite is the fruity Antoinette Affair, as it was light and refreshing, with subtle hints of lychee.

2. The Ice Cream & Cookie Co.

The Ice Cream & Cookie Co. is best known for their ice-cream cookie sandwiches, and you can try their limited-edition Mocha ice-cream at the fair. The ice-cream is made with locally-roasted beans that are steeped in fresh milk, making it extremely rich and creamy. Get it served in a cup at $4.50 or sandwiched between soft cookies for $5! If tea is more your cup of, well, tea, then get their popular English Earl Grey featuring two chewy lemon zest cookies. 

3. T2

Call me basic, but I am a huge fan of T2, thanks to their gorgeous teaware and interesting blends. Sample a wide range of T2 teas during the pop-up, including the Singapore Breakfast ($17) that’s inspired by kaya toast. The toothsome concoction is made up of pu erh, coconut, and pandan, giving it a sweet and nutty tang. 

For those organising a high-tea session at home, this will be the perfect time for you to invest in one of their pretty Teapots ($100 each) and a Cup & Saucer ($42) too.

4. IPPIN x Sake to Go

Those mad over matcha will enjoy IPPIN’s selection of Japanese tea, including genmaicha, hojicha, and sencha. Prices start from $9 for value-for-money tea leaves, and caps off at $66 for their premium variants such as the Gyokuro Kiwami, which consists of tea leaves that are freshly cultivated under 20 days, without direct sunlight. This translates to a refreshing, rounded matcha taste that lingers on your palate.

But don’t take my word for it; explore the different grades of tea through an in-depth tea appreciation session by the IPPIN crew. Then, have fun and booze it up with one of their tea sake cocktails!

5. tcc – The Connoisseur Concerto


Drinking coffee can be intimidating at times, especially when you’re at a hipster cafe and everyone’s sipping back a single origin brew. Thankfully, tcc – The Connoisseur Concerto makes it accessible for novice coffee drinkers with their casual approach to gourmet coffee.

Swing by tcc’s booth and try one of the world’s most sought-after and expensive coffee, Hacienda La Esmeralda Geisha, that’s known for its robust flavour profile, as well as the crowd-pleasing Jamaican Blue Mountain. If both brews tickle your fancy, you can get them at tcc’s Great World City outlet at an exclusive price of $15++ and $13++ respectively, between 6 and 22 September 2019.
