Past four days was basically life without Spotify Premium where MyBody.exe © had ad interruptions in the form of slumber every 30 minutes. Now here’s some food.
With over a hundred outlets located in its locale of origin, Heytea is China’s leading house of craft teas that features the exoticism of cheese teas and fruit teas. Their first overseas venture took shape in the form of a basement outlet in ION Orchard where queues mirror that of a an anaconda larger than anything Nicki Minaj could handle.
1️⃣ Brown Sugar Bobo ($4.50) - the litmus test to determine the economical trade-off between the current Portrait series of notes featuring the face of Yusof bin Ishak and bubble tea, resultant in a borderline pass of flying colours
2️⃣ King Fone Cheezo ($5.50) - being the OG innovators of the cheese foam madness, Heytea does cheese foam right in its rich yet balanced take on it
3️⃣ Salted Egg Yolk Crispy Cone ($2.50/$4.50) - I mean,
One of the better milk tea shacks in the island brimming with an overabundance of boba balls and tea-infused milk beverages, albeit a little on the high side of the budget spectrum

Merely a stone’s throw and a scenic walk through and from our previous destination at Tipo lies a stark and bright little shophouse within the already stark and bright Haji Lane. Bubbly and cheerful in appearance, LittlePo (小坡) is instantly recognisable by the larger-than-life bubble tea sculpture just outside the shop’s entrance. The picturesque exterior is perfect for taking photos to fuel your personal vanity, or even taking photos of your recently purchased beverage from LittlePo’s craft menu to fuel your personal vanity. Before actually tasting their bubble tea drinks, I was half-certain of the extent to which the drink might disappoint, as it seems to be the case with most newer and novelty bubble tea joints to simply lack that “stand-out” quality that I’m rather akin to. Again, an introspective study in personal vanity. However, a first sip of LittlePo’s Lapsang Souchong Milk Tea ($4.90) proved me otherwise; Lapsang Souchong is known for its smoky and bold character, able to be utilised in tea-smoked dishes and even cocktails with its strong flavour profile. While most bubble teas taste of simple syrup and bottled milk, the Lapsang Souchong Milk Tea at LittlePo shined through with its sensual smokiness coalescing with the silky and creamy milk to give a bubble tea experience that is a first of many. Their Hongkong Milk Tea ($4.90) tasted similar to that of classic Hong Kong-style milk tea, with a faded but subtle black tea note that underpinned the overall beverage. Definitely worth the travel amidst the hustle and bustle of venturing through the city.
