Established in 2016, OCTOBER CUPS is essentially a proudly made-in-Penang brand, where Founder Eileen Tan provided Penangites with wholesome herbal drinks made from 100% natural ingredients, with no added preservatives, colouring, and artificial flavouring. Every bottle of October Cups natural herbal drinks are also prepared with a generous dose of devotion for a healthier way of life.
Budding from the simple dedication to provide nutritious herbal drinks for her family, and growing requests from various friends and family by word of mouth, October Cups herbal drinks has now garnered a notable popularity among the public. We strictly uphold our Founder’s ardent belief in preparing healthful herbal drinks without any added preservatives, colouring and flavouring, keeping its tastes distinctively natural. We also uphold our promise in picking and selecting only the freshest and high quality ingredients. That will always be our promise to all our consumers.
For October Cups, it all started with a sip of herbal drink, and we wish that for our customers, a healthy lifestyle will also be established with a bottle of October Cups 100% natural herbal drink.
Natural ingredients, healthful drinks, nutritious for you, these are October Cups’ basic tenets.
In the process of selecting the ingredients in which to produce October Cups’ popular herbal drinks, we only pick the freshest and highest quality ingredients. We personally handpick and inspect all ingredients, and then slowly boil them down to a wholesome liquid drink. After a big pot of liquid goodness has been boiled to perfection and let cool, we measure and fill them up into pre-sterilised bottles. Finally we add the ingredients such as hawthorn berries and goji berries by selecting the exact number of pieces into each bottle.
We only select and use fresh winter melon as ingredients for our drinks, to reap the full benefits in taste and nutrient.
We look for fresh lemongrass with tight bulbs, with bright stems and healthy-looking tops. All our supply of local lemongrass come from a trusted supplier, to maintain the consistency in taste and flavour.
Hawthorn fruits have been widely regarded for its nutritious goodness, thus we only use clean hawthorn fruits from our trusted supplier.
All our raw red dates are plump and firm. We take the extra step to remove the pit from each individual red date as we prepare them to be cooked, as drinks that are cooked with red dates with pits might be too heaty for the body.
Lemons may differ in its acidity level, juiciness and taste depending on the weather or season. However, we always make it a point to select only well-ripened lemons with a tangy, juicy flesh.
Good, natural goji berries are often darker red in appearance, in contrast, goji berries that are bright red in colour are probably added with artificial colouring to appear more vibrant. Thus, we only pick the finest goji berries that are dark red in colour, with a distinctive taste of sweetness.
