I have been addicted to Serenitea for quite a looong while now. I actually wonder why I haven’t been blogging about something that I really like. I actually influenced a lot of my friends to try it out. Well, I guess it’s time for me to write about it so the readers here at HeaRty’s Haven can discover this great tea place in the Metro.
I usually rave about it whenever I talk with friends. When I got to meet a friend for some chit-chat, I made sure that we stopped by Serenitea. Good thing that there was still available space when we arrived. Usually, it’s full especially during weekends and people just end up getting their drinks & food order to go. We spent a couple of minutes at the place savoring the yummy appetizers & of course, the tea! *slurp*
Ordering is easy. We just go to the counter and choose which drink we like, some finger foods too as we wish. Prices are reasonable, cheaper than similar products in the market. Plus, quality is really top notch, considering that their teas are brewed (not made of artificial flavors).
What separates Serenitea from the rest is their brilliant idea for customers to choose the sugar level of their drink. PLUS, you can also choose the toppings you would want your drink to have. Uber Cool! (Though I’ve seen some competitors following the same lead but who thought of it first, right?)
- Full Sugar (standard)
- Less Sugar (75%)
- Half Sugar (50%)
- Mild Sugar (25%)
- No Sugar (healthy)
Optional Toppings to Choose:
- QQ (combination)
- Egg Pudding
- Black Bricks
- Lime Jelly
I assume you have an idea on what Serenitea offers. Anyway, here are some that we’ve tried so far:
- Wintermelon Cool (Php 80)
This is one of my all-time favorite drinks. I used to have difficulty finding this drink. Before Serenitea, only Tasty Dumplings offered this drink. I’m glad I found another place to find such a delicious drink 😀 Serenitea actually has different versions of the Wintermelon drink. Wintermelon Cool has black bricks as toppings. With Wintermelon Sweet, you won’t have any option on choosing the sweetness but you can choose the topping. You should try this when you visit the place, but just in case, they also have wintermelon milk tea!
- Lychee Milk Tea (Php 95)
Honestly, I don’t understand why my friend ordered Lychee milk tea hahaha! I guess he has a certain fondness for lychee and would like to try it as a milk tea. If I may suggest, you should order either Royal Milk Tea, Hokkaido Milk Tea or Black Dragon Milk Tea 🙂 My personal favorite is Black Dragon Milk tea but if you want to be safe, Royal Milk Tea is for you 😉
- Pepper Tofu (Php 50)
Oh yes!! Tofu again! Okay, I know you’re getting tired as I always get tofu wherever I go. But I just love this version from Serenitea, they cook to order which means each and every appetizer that we get is cooked on the spot. And most importantly, it’s fresh! So when it arrives on our table, it’s newly cooked. Very hot & yummy! Main spice in this dish is pepper (as the name implies). They cook it so well, and seasoned just right. The firmness of the tofu is also just right, I honestly just loved each and every bite of this tofu.
- Chicken Chop (Php 65)
When you go to Serenitea, please please order this dish! It’s the best chicken snack I have ever eaten. The chicken is just so juicy and tender. It’s literally so soft! And the coating is crispy too! What a combination. I don’t know how they did it but I loved it! We can call this pepper chicken too since I think the seasoning on this one is basically the same as what we had with the tofu dish. And we actually tried the greens along with the chicken, and even that was also a great treat! The plate was empty when we finished! hahaha :p
There was a time between March to May 2010 that I would go to Serenitea every single day to order at least 1 drink. I was able to finish a couple of Serenitea LoyalTea Cards (talk about addiction!). I love Serenitea’s version of loyalty card, it really serves the purpose to reward loyal customers.
The promo is you get a free drink whenever you complete all 10 stamps in the card. How? You get one stamp for every purchase of Large drink. Card is valid 3 months from the date of 1st stamp.
Another thing to note that the blogging community is very fond of the place. There have been numerous discussions (shall I say raves) about Serenitea. While I have heard it before from non-blogger friends, but the noise that the blogging community has had with Serenitea really is so powerful that you’d regret if you haven’t tried the place. So why don’t you? 😀
