Leave it to Singaporeans to go ga-ga over bottles of milk tea. Housed in tall, shampoo-like bottles, the popular milk tea and coffee from Taiwan’s Chun Cui He (純萃。喝) are now out of stock all over Singapore.

Launched just last Wednesday (Jul 13) at selected 7-Eleven stores, this popular beverage brand sold quickly. Even the restocks that arrived over the weekend have all been snapped up.

The next shipment is expected to arrive at the end of July, Chun Cui He Singapore announced on its Facebook page.

The shipment delay was attributed to the typhoon season in Taiwan.

Priced at S$2.80 per bottle, there are currently two flavours — Latte and Milk Tea — that have been brought to Singapore.

It is distributed by Abana Singapore Pte Ltd, which has so far remained mum on whether additional flavours will be brought in for future shipments. Other flavours yet to reach Singapore include Cafe Au Lait, Sumiyaki (Roasted Coffee), Cocoa Mocha and Matcha Latte.

While some netizens bragged about their buys online on the brand’s Singapore Facebook page, the not-so-lucky shoppers have complained about the limited stock available.

A netizen, Joanne Liew wrote: “People, please do not buy 10 bottles or more! Your children/friends/workplace colleagues/family members can buy them for themselves. Please let other people have them too!”

Other netizens have shared a list of stores in the comment section to help shoppers look for remaining bottles in stock.

When the beverage brand first launched at 7-Eleven stores in Hong Kong for HKD$12.90 (S$2.25) per bottle in Nov 2015, it sold out as swiftly.
