I’ve been hearing the current craze in Manila are milk teas. It reminds me of the Quickly Taro trend in college! Manila is so over the frozen yogurt (“SO 3 years ago!” according to tea lover Cory) so I just had to check it out after our dinner at Cafe Juanita nearby.So here’s how it goes…
1) Line up and order your tea… (It’s quite intimidating for a first timer so I’m glad I was with an expert, Cor)
- Kind of tea: So many kinds to choose from! Freshly Brewed, FruitTea, TeaLattes MilkTeas, YakultTea,etc. I followed Cor’s advice and got the Okinawa (brown sugar flavor) which for her is “the best!” Since she has Serenitea everyday, I believed her. =P
- Hot or cold? Cold!
- Sweetness levels: 100% full sugar, 75% less sugar, 50% half sugar, 25% mild sugar or 0% healthy only 50% for me!
- Sinkers: Pearls, Crystals, Lime Jelly, Red Bean, Black Bricks and Egg pudding (sinkers will cost Php 15 – 20 each) I didn’t get any.
2) You will be given this round disk that will light up and shake when your tea is ready. Cool!
3) Hang-out and take pics with friends while waiting. Isn’t Jenn’s necklace super cute?!?
Enjoy your tea! I’m super happy I took Cors advice. That Okinawa Milk Tea is so yummy and 50% sugar level was perfect – not too sweet and I can still taste the tea!
Serenitea also serves light snacks like Chicken Chops and Peppered Sweet Corn. I really must try those next time!
