Don't write this off as yet another tea stall. This Japanese tea kiosk in Raffles Xchange (sandwiched between Waa Cow! and Jjigae Jjigae) serves up artisanal Japanese teas that are brewed fresh upon order. While this means a longer waiting time (skip this if you're on a lunchtime crunch), it also means that every cup is put together with thought and care. Burppler Dex Neo vouches that the drinks here are worth the wait. Take his advice and try the Purple Sweet Potato Iced Lattero ($6.40). The tea was balanced and sweet, with a good hit of sweet potato flavour at the end. Add on the free cheese foam topping for a savoury contrast. For cool, rainy days, follow Tastemaker Zhihui Lim’s lead and opt for the hot version. She’s been hunting for a good sweet potato latte after she tried it in Seoul and so far this is the closest she’s had!
Avg Price: $5 per person
