Traveller’s Milk Tea Parfaits - Combining Specialty Tea Blends Gelato and Premium Toppings
Bringing an innovative spin to The 1872 Clipper Tea Co.'s tea bar and Carrara cafe’s offerings, a series of three milk tea parfaits - 101, Shibuya and Kowloon will be available for dining in and takeaway for customers to enjoy. The parfaits are exclusively available at The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. teabars, and in scoops at Carrara cafes.
To preserve the authentic taste of the tea blend, the handcrafted milk tea parfaits went through an extensive research and development process by both The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. and Carrara’s team. From a vigorous selection of suitable tea blends to the continuous development of gelato ice cream and toppings to accentuate the milk tea flavour resulted in the most authentic milk tea parfaits that were curated in the process.
Each milk tea parfait is inspired by a famous city, complemented with unique premium toppings that elevate the original taste of milk tea:
101 - Taiwan is widely renowned for its bubble tea culture, consisting of a unique bubble tea combination of black tea, milk and sugar syrup that many locals are fond of. Inspired by the iconic Taipei 101 which is the soul of Taiwan’s culture, this 101 Milk Tea Parfait is complemented with chewy brown sugar tapioca pearls, topped with smooth milk foam and a caramelised white sugar piece. Enjoy the combination of a sweet, caramel and malty taste when trying the 101 milk tea parfait.
Kowloon - Reminisce your trips to Hong Kong with a taste of Kowloon as the Kowloon’s milk tea parfait is infused with contemporary tangy and fruity notes, topped with a creamy aftertaste that is nostalgic to all. Look forward to this combination with egg tart crumbs toppings which best represent Hong Kong’s famous egg tart pastry, together with condensed milk and a premium gold leaf.
Shibuya - Experience autumn in Tokyo with Shibuya as the tea brings about travel nostalgia when you taste our milk tea parfait. With a soothing blend of clear honey and smokey oak notes, the milk tea parfait is complemented by real honeycomb pieces and topped with honey drizzle, making it a treat for everyone to delight in.
