I love drinking milk tea; this is one of my favorite refreshment. Now a day's there's lot of milk tea available in the market (yes we were invaded with lot of store offering milk tea). Bubble tea is the name for pearl milk tea and other similar tea and juice beverages that originated in tea shops in Taiwan during the 1980's. Bubble teas contain a tea base mixed with fruit or fruit syrup and milk. Ice-blended versions of the drinks usually in fruit flavors. One of the famous categories of bubble tea is "pearl milk tea" it was also known as "boba milk tea" in some parts of America. Pearl milk tea has small chewy balls made of tapioca starch called Pearls. (source)
Now I'll be sharing to you my reviews for 3 Milk teas (consider this as part 1 because I'll review more Milk tea in the future)
Rate: 5-Excellent 4-Very Satisfactory 3-Satisfactory 2-Need Improvement 1-Poor
Category: Taste, Price, and Store location and service
|Choco Milk Tea small size cost P45.00 - Bubbatealicious stall at 168 Mall|
Taste (4/5): I ordered Choco Milk Tea although there's the flavor of choco I can still taste the traditional milk tea flavor. It taste good and not too sweet. I only observed that the ice they put in my milk tea melted past (or maybe the service crew put few ice). After half cap I find it not refreshing anymore (so my advice if you really want cold drink/very cold refreshment ha! then ask the crew to put some more ice :).
Price (5/5): They offer lots of variety of milk tea and what I like about Bubbatealicious they offer lower price, compare to other Bubble tea store. I got my Choco Milk tea in small size for P 45.00 only (pocket friendly isn't it? :)
Store Location/Services (4/5) they have many branches like in SM MOA, SM Fairview, Megamall, SM North Edsa and 168 Mall (guys this is the only information I know about their locations, I don't really know if they have other branch around the metro). I bought this milk tea in 168 Mall (Divisoria, Manila) if you ask where exactly in 168 they're located in food court beside Wendy's stall (3rd floor).
|Pearl Milk Tea baby size cost P33.00 - Zagu stall in SM Hypermarket Makati|
Price (5/5): Affordable and they offer different size from Baby size (small), medium and large. The Zagu pearl milk tea I'm holding cost P33.00 only (ganyan ka liit ang baby size)
Store Location/Services (5/5): Because Zagu has many store branches I rate them 5. Very accessible even a small market have Zagu store (yon nga lang I don't know if all store offer pearl milk tea). I bought my Zagu pearl milk tea in Sm Hypermarket-Makati very near to our place plus I like the friendly service of their crew.
|Milk Tea with black Pearl Sago regular size cost P75.00 - Happy Lemon in Rockwell, Makati|
Taste (5/5): I love the taste, real flavor of milk tea. Not too sweet and not too much flavor of tea just right taste. (Very addicting :) as like as my previous review about Happy Lemon this one also made me feel full after consuming 1 tumbler. (nakaka busog :)
Price (5/5): Affordable. For me Happy Lemon is an alternative of Starbucks plus they offer lots of beverages as lower as P60 pesos. They offer from regular size to large size.
Store Location/Services (5/5): As I research, so far they have 4 branch here in the Metro 1 in Greenhills, 1 in Rockwell, Eastwood and in Trinoma hope they expand more (hope they also open their branch in Cebu and Davao for all my readers who live there, so they can also experience drinking this milk tea :). I love the service too; good thing Happy Lemon's located in Mall so while waiting for friends you can use the free wifi while you enjoy your favorite milk tea :).
Guys that's all for now, till my next review of another Milk Tea's in town :)
