Teafolia to close down, Singapore’s latest victim of Covid-19

Singaporean bubble tea brand Teafolia has permanently ceased operations in the territory.

A Facebook post announcing the closure cited the “current economic situation” as the reason for shuttering its outlets. The brand had traded in Singapore for the past three years.

Teafolia temporarily closed two of its three outlets during Singapore’s circuit breaker period, a lockdown imposed to counter the spread of the coronavirus pandemic on the island. It permanently closed its Bedok Mall outlet for reasons of “economic circumstances” a fortnight ago.

Teafolia was popular amongst locals for fruit teas, milk-based drinks and slushies as well as bubble tea. Its website lists one store in Los Angeles, USA, although it remains unclear whether or not the brand’s sole international location remains in business.
