We’ve all sipped on green tea whether it’s in pursuit of glowing skin or just for digestion purposes after a big fat meal. But Singaporeans take this drink to a whole new level and whip it up into a number of desserts and drinks. We were more than happy to jump on this bandwagon while we were taking in the many sights the city has to offer.

We ate {and drank} our way through the green tea trend at Singapore starting with these:

Tart At 2 AM Dessert Bar

2amdessertWe stepped into 2am Dessert Bar with very high expectations, and these were more than met with the Green Tea Tart: A crisp flaky tart filled with a bright green tea concoction with a citrusy tinge to it. While we’re happy gorging on this, one spoon at a time with the accompanying jasmine rice sherbet, we’re even happier pairing this with a sake cocktail. Mmm.

Ice Cream At A Spoonful Of Sugar

greentea-spoonful2You’ll find green tea ice cream all over town but the one at A Spoonful Of Sugar is worth mentioning for its inclusion of red bean. We think this requires an acquired palate {Asian dessert lovers will love the red bean in dessert} so if you are up for something new, go ahead and order yourself a scoop of the creamy sweet concoction.

PS: While you’re here, it might be worth your while to order a portion of waffles. We loved the crispy squares served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

Fondue At Lime Restaurant

We’ve attended countless lavish brunches where we’ve run around looking for a chocolate fountain to dip our marshmallows into. Now replace the chocolate fountain with a green tea one and if you’re still excited, book a table at Lime Restaurant. Take your pick of fruits {we’re partial to the strawberries} cake and marshmallows, and go crazy.

Where: 3 Upper Pickering Street

Frappuccino At Starbucks

starbucks-frappuThe Green Tea Crème Frappuccino is the standard for a chunk of the local population in Singapore, so we decided to try it out for ourselves. The ice-blended milky drink proved to be the perfect refresher on a hot summer afternoon and honestly, don’t you automatically just feel heathier when your coffee is replaced with green tea?

Starbucks has recently launched a double chocolate version of the same which contains crunchy java chips and chocolate sauce.

And if all else fails, head to a 7/11 and get yourself a packet of green tea Kit Kats or green tea Oreos. To be honest, we’re not super fans of the strong taste, but it’s not a bad way to get initiated.
