HFTea Herbal Tea (Cooling Zero Sugar)

In hot and humid Singapore, drinking traditional herbal teas — “Liang Cha 凉茶” is a popular way to cool the body and reduce excess internal heats. While there are many benefits to drinking Liang Cha, the time-consuming process of concocting these herbal teas is not ideal for many busy Singaporeans.

To solve this, Heng Foh Tong has created a unique and convenient bottled herbal tea drink called HFTea Herbal Tea (Cooling Zero Sugar) to deliver the benefits of traditional Liang Cha without having to go through the time-consuming brewing process. The HFTea Herbal tea harnesses the cooling properties of four different herbs: Bei Zi Cao 北子草, Prunella Vulgaris 夏枯草, Licorice and Monk Fruits and is flavoured with Stevia so it tastes sweet whilst containing zero sugar.

This zero-sugar approach makes HFTea the ideal low-calorie beverage for Singapore’s aging and more health-conscious population as well as people with obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).


HFTea was researched and developed by PhDs from a local institution with assistance and funding from Enterprise Singapore. It is manufactured locally in a licensed drink facility to ensure the highest standards of quality and cleanliness.

The result is a versatile, cooling drink with a long shelf life even when stored at ambient temperature — made with 100% herbal ingredients with no preservatives or artificial flavouring. HFTea can be enjoyed however you like it, chilled or at room temperature. 

More importantly, what sets HFTea apart is the use of authentic, high quality and safe herbal ingredients derived from decades of Singaporean TCM experience since 1957. HFTea is produced just the way a grandma brews for her own grandchildren.

Upcoming Launch of NEW Flavours 


Featured in Lianhe Zaobao (联合早报) in January of 2022, we cooperated with four students from Nanyang Polytechnic in the Science and Engineering field to improve our herbal tea and launch up to six new flavours. 

Taking into consideration the preferences of young customers, we developed new flavours to suit their taste. One of these creations is our Honey Peach Gum 蜜糖桃胶 Herbal Tea, which is a healthier alternative to bubble tea — using peach gum to replace traditional pearls and stevia leaves as a natural sugar substitute for a low-sugar drink.

Alongside new flavours are newly designed bottles with a softer and simpler look. The bottles are now more aesthetically appealing, and the ingredients of different types of herbal tea are illustrated on the packaging for easier identification of each type.
