Something bright and refreshing has been in the works, here in the SincereTea test kitchen!
As part of our mission of introducing tea time to our busy lives, here at SincereTea, we want to keep discovering new and exciting ways for people to enjoy their tea!
We are a team of pandan lovers and we want to share that love with our customers too! Our first endeavor in introducing pandan to our customers took the form of our house-made matcha pandan jelly, which was well received! Now, we are more than ecstatic to further expand our horizons by bringing you all an entirely new drink to kick off the summer season.
Introducing the COCOPANDAN, abright and refreshing pandan coconut milk tea to kick start your summer!
This drink was born out of us wanting to add an interesting twist to the typical Taiwanese milk tea, while also exploring the decaffeinated realm of herbal teas. We weren’t really aware of any popular herbal milk teas around, so we were up to the challenge of making one!
The road to perfection is rarely an easy one and this guy is of no exception. One of the biggest roadblocks in the development of this drink was getting the subtly sweet and nutty flavor of the pandan to really shine without the help of any extracts or artificial flavoring. Our commitment to using only fresh pandan leaves in the recipe led us to using a very lengthy brewing method. (We’re not complaining though! Our kitchen smells so good whenever we brew it!) The next obstacle was getting the balance of coconut and pandan just right. As mush as we would have enjoyed a really creamy milk tea, we wanted to make sure we gave that subtle pandan flavor enough room to dance on our taste buds. The result? A light, perfectly balanced, and surprisingly refreshing milk tea!
The SincereTeam has put a lot of testing and tasting into the development of this new drink and we can’t wait to share the fruit of our labor with you all!
Hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend and we’ll see you all in the shop!
