Love afternoon tea but really love desserts too? Now you can have both your favourites in one!
The 1872 Clipper Tea Co., which is located at ION Orchard, now offers tea-infused cream puffs. These tea puffs are an exclusive collaboration between The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. and Dulcet & Studio, so it won’t be easy trying to find flavours like these anywhere else.
Just look at the pastel hues of these dainty cream puffs; the Millenials in us just couldn’t wait to try them out.
If you have a preference for floral teas, then the rose black tea-infused Eternal Garden ($3.20) is right up your street.
Get a whiff of the mild fragrance of roses as you take your first bite into the crisp, pink outer layer of the cream puff and watch the pale cream filling gently ooze out. The cream-based filling had an intense floral aroma blended into its black tea flavour, reminding us of our familiar bandung drink with a twist.
For something more refreshing and lighter on the palate, go for the Earl Grey ($3.20) tea puff instead.
You’ll probably be surprised by a citrusy aftertaste, and that’s because the earl grey tea is flavoured with rind oil from bergamot oranges. The creamy sweet filling is elevated by the tartness, setting it apart from all the other cream puffs.
I think we may have found a favourite, and the pale blue aesthetics make it all the more appealing.
If you’re all out to fulfil your sweet tooth fantasies, the Milk Tea ($3.20) will definitely hit the spot.
The luscious filling of the milk tea-flavoured cream puffs is a true testament to why this flavour is the bestseller. The combination of milk in the original black tea was intense but extremely delightful. A must-try!
All about the tropics? Check out the latest addition to the tea puff collection, the Summer Passionfruit ($3.20).
Piped with the silky smooth filling boasting a dash of tart-y passionfruit flavour, this is one cream puff that will give you the summer vibes. It has a rather distinctive taste, and one that we’re sure will surprise you.
The 1872 Clipper Tea Co.’s tea-infused cream puffs are pretty much the whole package. These aesthetically-pleasing cream puffs are not just insta-worthy but are also out to satisfy your inner dessertholic.
