    Heytea craze

    How Chinese brand Heytea appeals to youngsters
    Mainland Chinese tea chain Heytea spawned a three-hour-long queue when it opened its first Hong Kong shop in Sha Tin recently, showing how pop culture on the mainland is getting widely accepted among young Hongkongers.
    To keep a tight control on quality, all Heytea shops are directly operated by the company itself, rather than relying on models such as franchising.
    With less than 100 shops across the nation, Heyteas sales revenue already topped 1 billion yuan last year.

    Crazy, but then HK people also queue up for hours to get a free pack of tissues. I've been to the shop in Shenzhen Happy Habour a few times. It's nice, but pretty similar to what other brands offer and it's priced about the same as Starbucks. Definitely not "queue up for hours" nice.

    Some of you thought most HK people dislike Mainland things.Some in local HK Chinese forums think most of the customers are new immigrants or mainland students in HK to explain the long queue.

    When I found out that it was from Mainland China, my interest for it suddenly vanished lol.
