Due to the announcement of tighter circuit breaker measures, a list of shops had to shutter, namely bubble tea shops, cakes and confectioneries, among other standalone F&B outlets.
As Singaporeans were queuing up for one last BBT, brands were working hard at fostering partnerships with other F&B outlets that are exempted from the suspension, so that desserts and BBT fanatics are still able to sate their cravings.
LiHo x GrabFood
Rejoice! LiHo has recently announced on their Facebook page that customers will be able to purchase its drinks via GrabFood, when you can order through one of the featured F&B brands.
These include, Woo Ricebox, Paik's Bibim, Tino's Pizza and Gong Yuan Ma La Tang.
However, only nine drinks from LiHo's menu will be available, and they will be in its medium cup size. They are:
- Classic Milk Tea
- Salted Caramel Milk Tea
- Brown Sugar Milk Tea
- Honey Milk Tea
- Earl Grey Milk Tea
- Honey Green Tea
- Jasmine Green Tea
- Milk Tea + Golden Pearl
- Da Hong Pau Milk Tea + Golden Pearl
You'll be happy to know that the drinks are still customisable to your preferred level of sweetness and ice, with additional toppings of white or golden pearl.
Do note that it's only available for delivery and not for self-pickup.
How to order: GrabFood
For those who are not living near to the delivery locations and are desperate for a cup, LiHo is launching their very own BBT kit, but it comes with a hefty price tag of between $45 and $85.
It'll come with tea leaves, creamer or milk, ready-made pearls, raw sugar and LiHo's cup and straws.
The BBT kits are available exclusively on the Shopee app every day at 12pm, with limited quantities available.
GongCha x Professor Brawn Bistro
Professor Brawn Bistro is a social enterprise selling Western dishes and BBT from Gong Cha as part of an ongoing community project at the Enabling Village.
Do note that Gong Cha is only available for delivery at the Enabling Village's Redhill outlet.
