Chinese beverage and desserts brand The Whale Tea has launched in Singapore.
Created in Nanjing, the brand now operates more than 500 outlets across the mainland since its first store debuted in June last year. Following The Whale Tea’s first foray into Southeast Asia, launching in Malaysia earlier this year, the brand opened its first two Singapore outlets, at Lot One Shoppers’ Mall and City Square Mall last month, followed by a flagship store in China Square Central that opened on Monday.
The predominantly black-and-white store design is decorated with whale symbols of varying shades of blue, effecting a bright and modern ambience.
The Whale Tea’s signature series is prepared with unusual ingredients such as peach gum, a natural resin from wild Chinese peach trees, known to be rich in amino acids and collagen – as well as spirulina, a seaweed-based superfood consumed for its nutrient-rich properties and a Chinese rice wine known as Wuliangye.
