As we all know, milk tea shops are an explosive trend nowadays. Here in Metro Manila, wherever you go you’re likely to find a quaint little shop where you can get your favorite milk tea flavors. What I mean is, these shops are EVERYWHERE and there are a lot of competing brands, so it can be challenging to find a milk tea shop that offers something new and still serves high-quality drinks. But one brand I so happened to discover is F Crafted Teas, and they have everything I’m looking for in a small, artisanal milk tea place.
F Crafted Teas is an up-and-coming milk tea brand that boasts a wide range of high-quality tea flavors sold at affordable prices. What I love about this tea place is that you can really taste the difference between F Crafted Teas’ artisanal drinks and those served in other milk tea shops. The tea flavors are richer and the aromas are much more fragrant, so it’s easy to tell that their milk teas and other tea-based drinks are actually made from premium-quality loose tea leaves, sourced from all over the world.
Because the owners of F Crafted Teas really honed their craft and went all across the globe in search of the best tea leaves, this milk tea shop stands out by offering some premium flavors that you don’t easily get from ordinary milk tea places. High-end tea variants such as French Rose Black Tea and Jasmine White Tea are rare but popular options in F Crafted Teas. My personal favorite, however, is their Taro Milk Tea. It’s a classic milk tea flavor but F Crafted Tea masterfully blends the drink to my liking – not too sweet while bringing out the flavors of both the tea and the taro.
More than just pretty drinks, F Crafted Teas also offers the toothsome Bubble Waffles to pair with your milk tea fix. They remind me of the ones that I’ve tried in Hong Kong because of their soft, buttery texture that I cannot get enough of. You can have them in assorted flavors such as Chocolate and Matcha, and even customize them to your liking with different toppings such as fruit, ice cream, and cookie crumbles. You can also try some pre-selected combos that are certified crowd favorites, such as Matcha Red Bean and Almonds & Cream.
With the multitude of emerging milk tea brands here in the Philippines, only a select few tea shops actually offer something new to the market without compromising the flavors of the drink. F Crafted Teas is one of those places. For affordable prices, you can enjoy some bespoke tea drinks rich in flavor and are made from high-quality tea leaves all over the globe. The source of the tea leaves, the perfect and personalized blend of the tea, even the way the baristas prepare the drinks – all of these things make F Crafted Teas not your ordinary milk tea place.
You can visit F Crafted Teas at 4F Ayala Malls Manila Bay (inside Japan Fudo Street).
