MUFFINS and more…

SINGAPORE, 26 June 2020 – HEYTEA Food Lab has new additions to its Tea menu with  specially crafted pastries for a yummie experience to pair with HEYTEA’s signature teas. HEYTEA started in 2012 specialsing in exotic bubble teas.

 HEYTEA Food Lab’s Delectable debut of Pastries


There are 4 baked pastries all baked to perfection. Classic Golden Croissant ($3.60) is  flaky and golden on the outside but fluffy inside. Comme les parisiennes I love to dip it in coffee actually a la the French ou francaise. Being a professional Chef, I have made Croissants before and I can tell you they involve a LOT of work and time and yummie butter, rolling and waiting for the dough to rise. A variation is the Chocolate Croissant ($4.20), which is clearly inspired by classic Pain au Chocolate. The croissant has two batons of chocolate inside that seduces your taste buds with each melting morsel when you warm it up before eating. The crust is a tad hard and not that crispy. The pastry dough has not been layered and rolled enough before baking.



Life by Chocolate

The Double Chocolate Chip Cookie ($2.00), a soft and chewy dark delight. Desperate and dark desires emerge when you see it…Made with a melange of milk and dark chocolate for a good taste profile. Nice to bite into and not overly sweet. A cookie to live for. I NEVER EVER use that ueber-asinine phrase beloved of brain-dead wannabe food writers – to die for. When you are dead you cannot taste anything, n’est pas.

Whoever does not love Muffins is very unwell…

Their  Muffin has Butterscotch chips inside for that sexy sweetness and aroma of caramel. From the French, caramel actually means “burnt sugar”. Inside the muffin is a dollop of gooey nutterscotch. Butterscotch Chip Muffin ($3.20) is buttery with a grainy velvety mouth feel.

 Afternoon Tea pairing

Good at anytime, treat yourself to some tea and pastries…to revive and indulge yourself.

 Try  HEYTEA’s Taro Bobo with its Golden Croissant. Together with the buttery Golden Croissant, the blend of taro with fresh milk and chewy bobo pearls make for an explosion of flavours and textures.  

Chocolate Croissant and HEYTEA’s Aqua Green Cheezo adds the jasmine perfume of jasmine green tea, savoury cheese foam and chocolate for a rathet unusual taste experience. 

HEYTEA’s Strawberry Cheezo and the Double Chocolate Chip Cookie are well matched. Think strawberries dipped in chocolate. Strawberries in a refreshing green tea base and creamy cheese foam melds with rich Double Chocolate Chip Cookie.

HEYTEA’s sweet indulgence, the Butterscotch Chip Muffin, can match well with the fruity Very Grape Cheezo—the juicy fresh grapes are all hand-peeled to provide premium flavor and taste plus a brisk Aqua Green tea base. Topped with slighty salty creamy cheese foam.
