Pokka Milk Tea at SM Hypermarket!

I've been quite worried about my instant milk tea stash. My Gold Kili pack is dwindling fast and I'm still trying to find somebody who can get me some from Singapore.

We were trying to find a good brand of Mint tea the other day at SM Hypermarket when we chanced upon (at the bottom of the shelf) a couple of Pokka Milk Tea! The cans looked like people were ignoring it (good for me!). I got one can and tried it out during dinner. It tasted better than the Pokka Milk Tea I got in Singapore! Not sure why, but the canned one tasted a lot better.

So when we did our groceries last weekend I got several cans. Weeee!

Kopi Roti Milk Tea

I usually order iced tea with milk at Kopi Roti, but since my tonsils were taking awhile to get well I decided to try out hot milk tea.

I was quite nervous at first since I didn't know if I'd like it. I was hooked at the first sip though and now I'm not sure which I like better. Maybe I'll order both next time I visit Kopi Roti. LOL.

Homemade Milk Tea with Sariwangi

I wasn't feeling too well the past two weeks and couldn't drink iced milk tea. I was kinda desperate already so I thought I'd try it out hot.

I then steeped a bag of Sariwangi black tea and added a tablespoon of condensed milk.

It was an awesome experience!

Teh Tarik at Makansutra

We were in the Manila area a few days ago and decided to have lunch at the Manila Ocean Park since it's been almost 2 years since the last time we visited. Aside from the aquarium area we were pleasantly surprised that the mall side was almost filled up with stores and restaurants. One great addition was Makansutra, a resto that offers a variety of Asian cuisine.

I was pretty pleased that Makansutra had teh tarik and I immediately ordered a glass (it's just PhP45!).

Ahhh... at last a place I can get authentic and yummy teh tarik.

Starbucks Full Tea Latte

I got so excited the other night when I saw a banner promoting Starbucks' new line of tea drinks. I had just been disappointed by an iced tea milk review I just did so seeing the banner gave me hope that I'd be able to find something yummylicious to drink in the Metro.

Finally got a chance to go to Starbucks after attending an event. We were forced to leave early because the venue was filling up with smoke and that's a death trap for me. We weren't ready yet to go home so we headed towards Starbucks to check out the new tea menu. The addition was basically just tea (full tea), then tea with steamed milk (full tea latte) and they still had the usual chai latte. I asked Miguel to get me some iced full tea latte and he brought back a list of tea flavors to choose from. I chose Earl Grey thinking that it was going to be the usual black tea.

I was surprised when he brought me a tall glass of iced tea, so I went back to the counter and asked if they got my order right. Apparently they don't make iced full tea lattes and the barista told me to just get some milk from the service table. So I got some whole milk and added it to the iced tea.

Seeing that the color and consistency was the same as what I prepare at home I excitedly took a sip... and... was disappointed. It was the floral taste again. Oh well, I guess I should research more about the different tea flavors and understand better what works with milk and what doesn't.
