Unmissable for tea enthusiasts: Don’t Yell At Me & Kebuke

Unlock the door to small bliss in the midst of bustling life with a cup of handcrafted tea. Hailing from Taiwan, Don’t Yell At Me might not be the most conventional name of a beverage store but it’s surely one that has taken the social media by storm.

Known for its hand-shaken layered concoctions crafted with rich tea, each of the hearty beverages is pretty to look at as it is delicious. The Matcha Milk with Brown Sugar Jelly Cake is a harmonious blend of traditional Japanese matcha and milk, perfectly complemented by the slight sweetness of brown sugar jelly. Other equally compelling flavors include the Red Bean Matcha, Dark Cocoa Milk, and the quintessential Winter Melon Fresh Milk.

Adding to the buzzing lineup of Taiwanese tea brands, we have the highly anticipated arrival of Kebuke, making its much-awaited international debut at Harbour City. Originating from Taichung, Kebuke’s journey began modestly in 2008, with a small shop nestled next to a local market. Embracing a blend of old-fashioned romance, local culture, and vintage aesthetics, the brand evokes a sense of nostalgic charm. With the name “KE-BU-KE” playfully echoes the question “are you thirsty” in Taiwanese, the thoughtful way of greeting that inspires Kebuke to put black tea at the heart of its products.

From the refreshing Jasmine Green Tea with Grapefruit to the nourishing Honey Rice Oolong Tea with a Whole Lemon and their signature Black Tea Latte, Kebuke offers a diverse range of innovative tea creations that pay homage to the old-town charm of Taiwan.

Premium Cocoa Delights from Hong Kong: Cacaolab

Nestled among these international fan favorites is a homegrown chocolate store called Cacaolab.

Precision and artistry are also at the heart of their pastries, baked goods, drinks, and more.

Whether you’re seeking the pure taste of single-origin cacao beans, the aromas of fruit-infused chocolate squares, the crunch offered by the dark chocolate-covered almonds, or the velvety smooth texture of cashew chocolate spread on toast, Cacaolab will not disappoint.
