A festival for tea-lovers will run from tomorrow till Sunday – here’s what to look forward to

The annual Singapore Tea Festival is back and bigger than ever! Presented by teapasar and held at the scenic Jewel Changi Airport, this three-day fes-tea-val will feature the wares of more than 50 brands, including beloved homegrown labels KELE and Woobbee. Global and local tea experts will also be there to spill tea tales and introduce you to the tea cultures of Japan, Korea, and Nepal.

This year’s Singapore Tea Festival will be powered by teapasar’s portable ProfilePrint – a food scanner that identifies the quality, taste profile, and origins of tea based on only the metabolomic fingerprint and machine-learning algorithms. This nifty gadget can also provide recommendations on foods that go well with the selected teas. You can try the ProfilePrint technology for yourself at teapasar’s booth and redeem a complimentary reusable Yixing purple clay glazed porcelain cup while you’re there.

You can look forward to these tea-licious highlights at the Singapore Tea Festival 2019.

Indulge in tea-time treats

If you’re a fan of quirky tea flavours and infusions, the Singapore Tea Festival has got your back! For the first time ever, the Festival will feature bubble tea – more specifically, Woobbee’s Herbal Mint (Pei Pa Kao) Milk Tea. This interesting combination is made using actual Pei Pa Kao syrup, fragrant tea leaves from Taiwan, and natural raw sugar to produce healthier tea with lower calories.

More of a visual person? Check out French-inspired local brand Pétale Tea, whose signature hand-sewn Blooming Tea does exactly what its name suggests. The Blooming Tea is made using 100% organic green tea and dried flowers ranging from jasmine and osmanthus to gomphrena and marigold, and blooms in brew for the perfect tea-time experience.

A good tea session is one that satisfies both your food and drink cravings! Luckily for you, the Singapore Tea Festival also features food vendors selling tea-inspired bites and healthier choices. Fossa Chocolate, Singapore’s first and award-winning bean-to-bar chocolate company, will be putting up their specialty tea chocolate for sale with flavours like Oolong, Hongcha and even Duckshit (it’s a name, not a flavour!)

Immerse yourself in tea knowledge

After filling your tummy with food and drinks, expand your mind by attending a masterclass helmed by global and local tea experts. Learn how to make homemade kombucha with Melissa Mak from Fizzicle or put together your own Blooming Tea while sipping on a cup of freshly brewed Pétale Tropical Paradise tea.

The Singapore Tea Festival will take place at Jewel Changi Airport, B1 Atrium, on 19 July (2pm to 10pm) and 20 – 21 July 2019 (10am to 10pm). Admission is free. You can find out more about Singapore Tea Festival on teapasar’s website.
