Hot and Spicy
Whether you’re enjoying a bowl of Laksa, curry stew or some Tikka Masala, eating spicy food definitely hits all the right fiery notes! To soothe the burning sensations, reach out for a refreshing beverage, like POKKA Jasmine Green Tea. Developed specifically for Southeast Asian taste buds right in Singapore, this rejuvenating blend of aromatic jasmine with the highest quality green tea also promises antioxidant goodness from tea polyphenols. In Singapore’s sweltering heat, POKKA Jasmine Green Tea is the ideal thirst quencher and mouth-cooling remedy!
Salty and Savoury
For dishes like carrot cake and noodles which are more salty and savoury, matching it with a sweet beverage like POKKA Honey Green Tea can help balance out the palate from high salt levels. Infused with real honey with no added preservatives and colouring, this naturally healthy green tea promises an endearing refreshment that lingers on your lips and counterbalances the feeling of thirst you’ll always feel when eating high-sodium foods.
When diving into dishes with strong spices and herbs like Nasi Briyani, cooling tea drinks such as POKKA Peppermint Green Tea can provide a simple, yet cooling match to complement the complex fragrant herbs found in these dishes. Did you know? Peppermint tea can also aid digestion and soothe an upset stomach, making it an excellent beverage to consume.
Craving for some cake, mango sago or local sweet treats like Ondeh Ondeh? Pair them with a contrasting drink to bring out the flavours in the dessert. Choose POKKA Jasmine Green Tea (No Sugar), which is authentically brewed from selected premium green leaves. With no sugar, the bitterness of the tea will cut through to neutralise the sweetness. Not to mention, this also means it has zero calories. Similar to its counterpart POKKA Jasmine Green Tea, this beverage can also be enjoyed hot as it is 100% real brewed with no added preservatives. Whether chilled or heated in a teapot, enjoy it your way!
