The Far East is well known for its extraordinarily complex and varied cuisine, with dishes suitable for everyone, from the purist vegan to the ultimate carnivore. The range of Oriental drinks is equally impressive, offering flavour combinations and unique ingredients that are rarely found in Western beverages.

Here, at Sing Kee Foods, we are delighted to offer our customers an unbeatable selection of non-alcoholic Chinese drinks and other beverages from the Far East, some of which we introduce below.

Time for tea?

Tea is a central element in Chinese, Japanese and other Far Eastern cultures. It is unsurprising, then, that many Oriental drinks are based on this ingredient. Many of them are designed to be served and drunk cold, based on green, black and herbal varieties. While green tea drinks are familiar in the West, other popular tea-based beverages include sweetened milky black tea and chrysanthemum tea, which is said to calm your nerves.

We recommend KIRIN Milk Tea

Tea-based drinks are also available with tapioca pearls, often known as bubble tea. For a particularly soothing drink, try brown sugar ginger tea, using hot or cold water to match the season.

We recommend GE XIAN WENG Brown Sugar Ginger Tea

Looking for something that promises more health-giving properties? The antioxidants and polyphenols in pu-er tea can improve digestion and help your body stop producing higher levels of fat. Meanwhile, oolong tea is claimed to boost metabolism, decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and protect against certain cancers.

We recommend SEA DYKE Oolong Tea

Feeling fruity?

Fruit-based soft drinks are also commonly drunk in the Far East, especially by young people. Fruit is usually blended with other ingredients such as tea, rather than served as pure juice. Some of the flavours will be familiar to Western customers, such as apple, lemon and lime, others less so, such as melon and lychee. In Thailand, drinks blending fruit with coconut jelly are especially popular.

We recommend MOGU MOGU Mango Flavoured Drink with Nata de Coco

One of the most popular fruit flavours in both soft and alcoholic Oriental drinks is plum, especially in the summer in the form of a long drink. As with much of the food and beverage from the Far East, plums are celebrated for their nutritional and health benefits. They contain many vitamins and minerals, as well as fibre and antioxidants that can help reduce the risk of chronic disease.

We recommend JIOU LONG JAI Plum Drink

Powders and more

Matcha green tea powder from Japan already has legions of fans in the West. Creating your own delicious and healthy matcha latte at home is easy and takes only a few minutes ­– for a truly authentic experience, use a bamboo whisk.

We recommend WEICO JEE Matcha Green Tea Powder

Drinks based on soy milk are also frequently consumed in Far Eastern countries, such as South Korea, again for nutrition and health reasons. Soy is an excellent way to increase your plant-based protein, as well as being naturally free of cholesterol and low in saturated fat.

We recommend VITASOY Less Sugar Soy Drink

Dried flower buds, especially prepared for steeping in water, not only create a soothing drink with a subtle fragrance, they are also beautiful to watch as they gentle unfurl before your eyes – for this reason, make sure you use a glass teapot!

We recommend EAST ASIA Dried Rose Flower
