CHAGEE 霸王茶姬 – Where Every Sip Counts

If you love tea, especially Chagee, you’ve probably heard the news: Chagee is making a comeback in Singapore this August after their sudden exit earlier this year. They’ll be opening stores at Raffles City, Plaza Singapura, and orchardgateway. Woohoo!

Crossing Borders for Chagee

During the months when Chagee wasn’t available in Singapore, the only way to get our fix was by heading over to Johor Bahru. I’m sure we weren’t the only ones making that trip, haha!

Tea Break at Mid Valley Southkey

We were shopping at Mid Valley Southkey and stopped by the Chagee outlet there for a tea break. They also have locations at AEON Bukit Indah, AEON Tebrau City, Toppen Shopping Centre, Mount Austin, and more. Just visit their website for the full list.


Be sure to check their website because they will launch new flavours every now and then!

Even though it was a weekday, this Chagee outlet had a constant flow of customers. It’s no surprise it’s so popular—it’s really good, even if it is a bit pricier than other brands.

Here’s what we got:

White Peach Oolong Milk Tea 花田乌龙

We ordered their number one bestseller, White Peach Oolong Milk Tea. It had a subtle white peach sweetness and a very aromatic tea fragrance. You can’t adjust the sweetness level, but it’s not overly sweet at all. Super refreshing and definitely one of the best tea drinks I’ve ever had.

Chic and Practical Packaging

By the way, I love their packaging bag! It totally looks Dior-inspired, haha. It’s actually an insulated cooler bag and a really good one too. You can seal it after putting your drink in. Every time we get tea to take back to our hotel, it stays nicely chilled.

If you’re as big of a Chagee fan as we are and have a bunch of these bags, don’t toss them! Turn them into pretty tissue boxes and give them to your friends.

Back at our hotel, Capri by Fraser, we ordered Chagee via Grab delivery from their Permas Jaya outlet. They packed all the teas in the same insulated bag, so our drinks stayed icy cold when they arrived. Yeah, I’ll admit it—we pretty much had Chagee every day while in JB, haha.

Exploring Chagee’s Fresh Milk Tea Series

Jasmine Green Milk Tea 伯牙绝弦

The jasmine floral fragrance really stood out. Out of all the flavours I’ve tried, the jasmine one is definitely my favourite.

Da Hong Pao Milk Tea 白雾红尘

Rich and full-bodied, with deep roasty flavours and a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Lapsang Souchong Black Milk Tea 金丝小种

This Lapsang Souchong Black Milk Tea came out in May as a new flavour from Chagee’s collab with local lifestyle brand, dUCk. It’s not your usual tea flavour—it’s somewhat smoky in taste. Definitely an acquired taste.

Conclusion: Elevating the Tea Experience

Hands down the best tea brand I’ve tried. Chagee uses fresh tea leaves for their brews, which gives each cup its own unique character and amazing aroma. I’ve always been a fan of Chinese tea, and Chagee really elevates it to another level, letting us savour the true beauty of tea in every sip. Plus, they don’t mess around with non-dairy creamers like some others do. If you love tea, I highly recommend giving Chagee a shot. It’s a must-try!
