Earlier this year, Taiwanese bubble teaÂ connoisseurÂ The Alley announced its impending arrival in Singapore. Although details were scant, eagle-eyed netizens immediately jumped on the news, speculating when and where the brown sugar pearl milk specialist would set up shop.
Fast forward a couple months, and the wait is almost over. Interestingly enough, the brand will be opening two stores at the same time in mid-AprilÂ â€” one at Jewel Changi Airport, the other a flagship and â€œworld firstâ€ at Cineleisure Orchard called The Alley Luxe. Both will join the brandâ€™s family of more than 300 outlets across the globe, which has been expanding since 2013.
Not much else has been said about the airport outlet, but at the â€œpremium lifestyle cafe conceptâ€, you can expect to see a selection of pastries like croissants, cruffins (croissant-muffin hybrids), and kouign-amann (Breton cake) creations to go with the brandâ€™s signature Brown Sugar Deerioca SeriesÂ of fresh milk and tapioca pearls thatâ€™ve been brewed for hours in natural brown sugar.
Besides the sugary beverage, the menu will also offer a new Lulu Series of fresh fruit and tea blends, plus its popular Aurora Series of ice blended fresh fruits and tea in swirls of color.
