Singapore’s iconic heritage brand, Yeo Hiap Seng,(Yeo’s) has launched the Yeo’s Drinkable Garden, a refreshing and immersive experience at Singapore’s premier horticultural destination, Gardens by the Bay.
The Yeo’s Drinkable Garden takes visitors on a multi-sensorial journey inspired by the brand’s signature and most distinguishable drink – Yeo’s chrysanthemum tea. The month-long exhibit pays homage to the humble chrysanthemum and is a feast for the senses, featuring an installation inspired by different Yeo’s chrysanthemum brews – Yeo’s iconic signature Chrysanthemum Tea, the newly launched ‘heavenly’ rare Snow Chrysanthemum Tea and a “test-kitchen” Rose-Infused Chrysanthemum brew.
The botanical experience will tell the story of the exceptional quality and craft behind each Yeo’s drink. Visitors will learn about the unique benefits across a variety of chrysanthemums and get a glimpse into the intricate craft infused into making Yeo’s chrysanthemum tea – from the growing and harvesting of fresh flower petals, through to the drying process, the masterful brewing techniques and to the final step of meticulous cooling and packaging.
Also on site will be the special edition Yeo’s signature chrysanthemum tea, that commemorates the centenary of Singapore’s founding Prime Minister, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, and to celebrate his legacy as Singapore’s “chief gardener” and his visionary role in transforming Singapore into a green city. The commemorative Yeo’s packs are not for sale, and will be distributed in educational settings around Singapore. Gardens by the Bay, a ground-breaking project made possible by the foundation laid by Mr Lee, will be one of multiple distribution points all over Singapore, where packs will be given to visitors for free while stocks last.
Said Ong Yuh Hwang, CEO, Yeo Hiap Seng:
“Yeo’s continues to promise on its heritage of producing intricately crafted drinks using only quality ingredients. Our Yeo’s Drinkable Garden is a reflection of the core values of our signature drink – real chrysanthemum flowers filled with aroma and flavour, brewed in its purest form with no compromise on taste – a true celebration of the best of our
heritage combined with creativity and innovation.”
The Drinkable Garden complements Gardens by the Bay’s upcoming Chrysanthemum Charm– the penultimate changing floral display in Flower Dome for 2023, which opens on Sep 29.
Chrysanthemum Charm is inspired by the open grasslands reminiscent of the steppes of Mongolia and features diverse varieties of chrysanthemums. The floral display is made possible by Yeo’s.
In addition, Yeo’s is also supporting Gardens by the Bay’s inaugural Flower Carpet, which opened on Sep 23 at Supertree Grove.
The Yeo’s Drinkable Garden is open to visitors from Sep 16 to Oct 13 at the South American Garden in Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay. Admission is free.
