I love matcha. I seek it almost on a daily basis, having prowled all the matcha tea houses in Singapore and even cafes that sell matcha latte or offer it as a cold brew. I recently came across Craft Tea Fox. The brand specializes in matcha and hojicha and their product line-up revolves around that – from powder to cold brew.
Craft Tea Fox sells Matcha Latte (S$7) and Hojicha Latte (S$7) and they also sell oat latte versions of the same at S$8 per bottle. As I am lactose-intolerant, I tried their oat latte range.
Their Hojicha Oat Milk Latte was smooth to the taste, with a creamy finish. While I did note that it was slightly sweetened, it was not too sweet that I could easily make out the nutty taste profile of the roasted green tea as it sunk in.
The Matcha Oat Milk Latte hits you immediately the moment you drink it. The delightful bitterness of the tea was clearly perceptible, indicating a generous concentration of matcha. Compared to the hojicha, the matcha latte seemed less sweeter.
Craft Tea Fox operates primarily as as a delivery service but they do make their matcha and hojicha lattes available in certain cafes and bakeries like An Acai Affair, Morimori Yogashi Patisserie, etc. Islandwide delivery is free for orders of S$40 or more – or roughly 6 bottles of their latte. Otherwise, an S$8 delivery charge applies. My matcha and hojicha latte bottles were packed nicely in a styrofoam box when it was delivered to me, with the bottles still chilled inside and ready to drink. Craft Tea Fox delivers from Mondays to Fridays, from 11AM to 7PM. I was initially concerned that I might not be at home when they deliver but their website states that the bottles can still stay cold for a few hours when inside the styrofoam box.
Aside from single orders, Craft Tea Fox also has a subscription system where customers can automatically have their matcha or hojicha latte bottles replenished every 1,2,3 or 4 week intervals at 10% off the ala carte prices. For matcha purists, Craft Tea Fox sells matcha and hojicha powder, including ceremonial grade ones. Customers can also choose to order these powders as a DIY set inclusive of a bowl and whisk, similar to how they do in matcha tea houses.
