HEYTEA, China’s contemporary tea connoisseur and original inventor of the Cheezo Tea, has added baked goods to its menu for pairing with their signature teas. HEYTEA Food Lab is making its debut with four pastries – the Golden Croissant (S$3.60), the Chocolate Croissant (S$4.20), the Double Chocolate Chip Cookie (S$2) and the Butterscotch Chip Muffin (S$3.20).
|Excellent||A decent croissant should be crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and flaky. Upon cutting it or taking a bite, it should still hold its shape to a decent extent. You’ll need to be able to see the layers. As for the taste, it should be buttery but not very oily.
Best example: Tiong Bahru Bakery’s croissants
|Pass||Decently flaky and buttery, with a slight crisp on the outside. May or may not hold its shape after cutting or taking a bite but still tastes buttery without it being too oily. Layers can still be seen.
Best example: Delifrance’s croissants
|Fail||Anything that doesn’t fulfil the ‘pass’ category.
Best example: Provence’s mini croissant. Those aren’t croissants. Those are bread rolls masquerading as croissants.
