I discovered this drink by chance when I was walking along the streets during Sinulog Festival in Cebu last January 20, 2019. It means that this post is long overdue. Apologies.
The Sinulog-Santo Niño Festival is an annual cultural and religious festival which is held on the 3rd Sunday of January in Cebu City, and is the centre of the Santo Niño Catholic celebrations in the Philippines. (via Wikipedia)
Going back, I saw a girl holding a bottle of water on one hand and a bottle of this milk tea on the other. I was skeptical because as per previous experience with bottled milk teas, the taste is just average, if not below, but I still gave it a try because.. Milk tea! LOL.
Mind blown! ♡
This to-go milk tea is super yummy, creamy and not watery whatsoever + you can definitely taste the tea!
This was priced at Php 80 for 300 ml which was acceptable considering it was during the festival.
While writing this post, I searched if Siao Tea has a physical shop that I can get more of their drinks from, but unfortunately it’s just via online to date.
Regardless, it still had great reviews in their Facebook and Instagram page + I saw they have different flavors as well! I’m assuming what I bought was their Classic flavor.
I’m Already Missing The Moment While I’m Still Living It
My new-found friends in grad school, co-teachers and my students in my current job (which I will be leaving very soon–see here for more info) makes it really difficult to say goodbye once I’m done with that chapter in my life.
I’m already missing the moment while I’m still living it.
Truth is, we need to move forward for us to be better.
This is my way of finally embracing growth and the new adventures waiting for me–writing about it.
Aside from coffee, I am a huge milk tea lover as well! This post is long overdue, but here it is! ♡
Macao Imperial Tea is one of the milk tea shops I really want to check out. When I went there, I’m not really quite sure what to order–typical me in every new shop I go to–so I ended up asking the barista their best milk tea instead. They happily suggested Cream Cheese Milk Tea.
So, for the taste! I love it ♡ though it’s a slightly different taste from what I am used to–it’s less sweeter and more on the creamier (and a bit salty) side (they don’t call it cream cheese for nothing!)
My mom even approves. She loves it. LOL.
If my memory serves me well, the price is around Php 145 + Php 20 for the pearls.
Though a bit pricey compared to other milk tea shops, it’s still worth a try! Will definitely go back there soon ♡
