A Trendy Tribute to the Oriental Chrysanthemum
Hong Kong – Trendsetting KiKi Tea is partnering internationally renowned Chinese luxury lifestyle brand Shanghai Tang to launch two limited-edition chrysanthemum-themed drinks from 28 September to 8 November 2020.
A trendy and modern tribute to the revered oriental flower, this collaboration features two snapshot-worthy versions of KiKi Tea’s signature crowd-pleasing Taiwanese tea sensations, updated with chrysanthemum-inspired elements and especially suitable for autumn.
Regarded as the resilient, tenacious hermit in Chinese culture, the chrysanthemum is also honored in Shanghai Tang’s new Chrysanthemum home fragrance collection.
KiKi Tea’s two limited-edition beverages are curated with the elegant and lightly fragrant chrysanthemum, a symbol of longevity used for hundreds of years in Chinese medicine for its health-giving properties to treat respiratory problems, high blood pressure, and hyperthyroidism.
The highlight of this 360-degree snap-worthy thirst quencher is the floating flower – a chrysanthemum dancing dreamily in the drink. Chrysanthemum tea is also renowned as a great health drink for its cooling and calming effects, especially soothing after consuming oily foods.
Shanghai Tang’s Chrysanthemum Home Fragrance Collection is likewise a tribute to the chrysanthemum’s renown as the resilient, tenacious hermit in Chinese culture. The brand new scent was inspired by Chinese culture and the iconic plant found in the fabled Huangshan — the ‘Yellow Mountain’.
The Chrysanthemum fragrance is warm and autumnal, effusing a floral, aromatic bouquet with spicy accords to delight those with a taste for oriental scents.
Customers purchasing any chrysanthemum-themed beverage at KiKi Tea will receive a voucher to redeem a fragrance ceramic tile at Shanghai Tang, while Shanghai Tang customers purchasing any items from the new Chrysanthemum or Bamboo Home Fragrance Collection are presented with a voucher for a complimentary chrysanthemum-themed beverage at KiKi Tea.
Customers are required to follow KiKi Tea and Shanghai Tang’s respective Instagram pages, sharing the relevant post upon redemption.
The limited-edition seasonal beverages are available at all four KiKi Tea branches – KiKi Tea @ Sun’s Bazaar at Telford Plaza in Kowloon Bay, KiKi Tea @ Sun’s Baazar at Pacific Place in Admiralty, KiKi Tea at K11 MUSEA in Tsim Sha Taui East, and KiKi Tea at ifc mall in Central.
The Shanghai Tang Chrysanthemum Home Fragrance Collection includes a range of fragrance products for interiors, including scented candles in three different sizes, a diffuser, and an easy-to-use room spray.
The Home Fragrance Collection is now available at all Shanghai Tang Hong Kong boutiques and online at shanghaitang.com.
