Mine Shine

Milk tea fanatics will surely love this treasure my husband and I discovered at 7-Eleven. Yes, 7-Eleven!!!

Introducing, Mine Shine, a ready to drink milk tea beverage available at all 7-Eleven stores. At first we only found it at one of the branches in Makati, but it eventually became available in the 7-Eleven store near our home (hooray for that!).


How does it taste? It tastes like the hokkaido milk tea at Serenitea. Far from the taste of Pokka's and Royal milk tea since it doesn't have a citrus tinge.

Definitely something I'm storing in my ref. Thank you 7-Eleven!

Yup, Clair and I have been fanatics for close to 2 years now. We discovered Mine Shine around 2008, but I have to agree -- it's been hard to find it in some 7-11 stores outside of Makati.

Wow, how I wish this was available here in Davao! We don't have 7-11 here either!

in fact, i'm drinking one now and i'v been hoarding since it usually runs out of stock.

I tried one today cuz I've read so many people raving about it. Honestly, i was really disappointed by it. I found it really bland. Like it had been diluted A LOT. I wouldn't buy it again. i actually tried recently C2's Milk Tea and it was a lot tastier (though the only available size is really small).

This was the first off-the-shelf milk tea I've tried and I'm instantly hooked, very delicate taste but definitely memorable because of the barley. I also tried C2 Milky Tea a few days after after reading the comment above but I'd still prefer Mine Shine because C2's has an overpowering sweetness with a distinctly strange sourness...

Well, this Mine SHine is really a good alternative if most of the milk tea shops out there are already closed. I was about to buy milk tea from Zentea but it was already closed so, I tried Mine Shine. It has a very good taste. You can't really taste the tea, but u know there's tea in it. Well, you guys should try it talaga. and maybe, patronize it for good. Only 42php, dba, super cheap? :)
