It seems like only yesterday when Gobi started their tea production program which they called 高谷帝 (Gao Ku Di) or High Valley Emperor Tea.
The Singapore tea market is small and the controlled by a handful of distributors. No tea is made in Singapore and the Gobi crew decided to do the uncommon. The Gobi team cured fruit peels, used local spices to create 8 blends. It’s not too bad for a bunch of pastry chefs more well known for their cakes and desserts than tea.

Gobi recently showcased their tea by launching their DFV Chai offering (Dirty Filthy Viagra Chai). Gobi’s tea production is in line with Lifvations urban manufacturing strategy where it’s possible to manufacture high quality fine products in cities.
