It’s strawberry season in Korea once again! For bubble tea lovers, that means one thing — LiHo Tea’s beloved “Be My K-Strawberry Sweetheart” drinks are back for the fifth year running. 

This year’s edition of the series brings back two crowd favourites — the K-Strawberry Latte (S$7.90 in store, S$9.10 for delivery) and K-Strawberry Jing Syuan (S$7.30 in store, S$8.40 for delivery). And making its debut is a cool K-Strawberry Coconut Shake (S$7.30 in store, S$8.40 for delivery).

Fans will recognise the drinks from the iconic cups. The cups, made specially for this series, are shaped adorably like strawberries and topped with a green “leaf” cap — talk about IG-worthy!

The drinks are offered only in one size and will be available from Feb 9, 2023 until further notice. 

If you’re looking to have the drinks delivered to you, they’ll be available exclusively via one service provider — GrabFood — in the opening weeks from Feb 9 to 23, 2023. (Pro tip: Use your GrabUnlimited subscription for up to 20% off self-pickup orders.)

The star ingredient

What’s the secret to making these drinks so addictive? It’s the inclusion of Korean strawberries, which are known to be sweeter, juicier and less acidic than the normal varieties. 

What’s more, fresh Korean Seolhyang strawberries — one of the fruit’s most popular varieties in Korea — are handpicked and flown in from the gorgeous farms in Goryeong County, Gyeongbuk Province. These shipments happen every three to five days, to ensure the freshest and juiciest strawberries go into your drinks.

It’s Korea’s strawberry season between January and March. 

Since Seolhyang strawberries are prone to damage and thus aren’t easily found in Singapore’s supermarkets, it’s one of the rare chances for strawberry lovers to indulge in their lusciousness.

For the two classics LiHo is bringing back, the K-Strawberry Latte will probably capture the hearts of strawberry-milk fans. There’s a reason it’s the all-time bestseller — you can’t go wrong with the comforting blend of creamy fresh milk and strawberry.

If milky drinks aren’t quite your speed, the K-Strawberry Jing Syuan is a little simpler, featuring the crisp and aromatic jing syuan tea as the base but with a tangy strawberry jolt to brighten things up.

If you need to cool down from the enervating Singapore heat as the gloomy weather lets up, LiHo is unveiling the brand-new K-Strawberry Coconut Shake. This comes on the heels of its successful coconut drinks series rolled out recently.

The most popular beverage in Singapore, coconut shakes are the perfect remedy to Singapore’s usually sweltering heat. But refreshing coconut slurry given the Midas touch of Korean-strawberry vibrancy? It’s a one-of-a-kind indulgence coconut shake fans wouldn’t want to miss.
