It was 2010. For months, I would pass by a Serenitea branch every day to buy 2 large milk tea drinks for take out. It happened so frequently that my colleagues started to ask where the drinks were bought. I had this nagging feeling that they were thinking that “Roch was crazy and an addict!”. Imagine drinking two large milk tea everyday. Are they really that good? That’s the story of how I discovered Serenitea.
Fast forward to 2013, Serenitea is already a household name. While there are more and more teashops have opened in Metro Manila, Serenitea has held its place as the first teashop to utilize a tea espresso machine in brewing its tea.
As for me? Well, still a milk tea addict! You will always see me getting jumbo drinks whenever Serenitea celebrates its anniversaries.
Last night, I spent several hours drinking every single variant of Serenitea’s new creations. They are finally revamping their menu and will be introducing several new yummy drinks for tea lovers! Let me share with you what they are before Serenitea starts to offer them in all their branches by end February 2013. Exciting times!!!
- Tropical Yakult
While the pineapple flavor is dominant, this drink is actually a combination of different tropical flavors added into Yakult drink. A very refreshing drink that is timely as summer is fast coming!
- Lychee Yakult
My problem with lychee drinks is that the flavor of lychee is too much for my palate. However, this new lychee yakult by Serenitea just had the perfect recipe! It has the right amount of lychee and right amount of yakult. This must have changed my outlook and I may order lychee yakult a lot of times when it officially comes out in Serenitea branches.
- Chaffe’ Milk Tea
I’ve been wondering why Serenitea had not come up with a coffee-tea drink. I’m happy to know that they finally did with Chaffe, an innovative drink that brings together the goodness of tea and coffee! I tried this with 50% sugar. However, I would suggest you get this with at least 75% sugar to achieve the best yummy taste!
- Cocoa Green Tea Frost
If you love chocolates and you want to try something different with your drink then Cocoa Green tea frost is for you! This chocolate drink has a generous serving of matcha-flavored foam topping. The way to drink this is NOT to mix the ingredients. You just have to take a sip and let those flavors naturally mix while you drink it!
And oh, the Cocoa Green Tea Frost grows on you!
- Chocolate Pudding Milk Tea
this is a combination of Okinawa milk tea and chocolate pudding. If you’re a chocolate lover, you would love this new drink!
- Cookies & Cream Milk Tea
I had to borrow this photo from Serenitea because I want you to see the cookie crumbs on top of the drink. You know what’s unique about Serenitea’s cookies & cream drink? They actually used REAL cream! They stayed true to the name!
So the next time you visit Serenitea, say hi to the server, smile widely and order one of their new drinks! You might have a new Serenitea favorite drink!
