my love for tea actually started when i discovered that the british way for drinking tea which is with cream is very favorable to my palate. then novelty milk teas such as quickly became famous and i was simply hooked on taro milk. i would go to dec and hoard their taro milk back when the v mall was still virra mall.
i enjoy tea with milk, people might think i'm crazy if they find out that i put cream/milk on my green tea to get that milk tea effect as well. when i was in thailand it was thai iced tea heaven of course. thai iced tea has this distinct taste and color that people might not find favorable. chowking's nai cha which is served with jelly/gulaman is also a fave. my recent discovery is mineshine, the bottled milk teas you can get from mini-stop or 7-11. gheez never realized it costs more than 50 PHP until i asked someone to buy it for me.
after finishing my half liter bottle of mineshine, i got inspired to write about it and then suddenly came across an article on bubble tea. what a coincidence. i ought to visit this place next time i go to the block. anyway that's it, it you haven't tried milk tea, try one. though i must admit it takes a lot of getting used to.
