New Milk Tea Alert: RoyalTea Philippines (Taft, Manila)
Year after year, food trends have come and gone. Some exciting and delicious, some just plain odd and forgettable. But it seems one specific trend has prevailed and stood the test of time. From a mere hype, the milk tea craze has now become a food staple. Opening on May 15 in WH Taft Residences, a milk tea giant is shaking up our obsession. Here are 5 reasons to drink up and love RoyalTea Philippines!
Brewed with Intention (Reason 1)
With over 500 stores across Asia and the United States, the RoyalTea franchise is specifically known for its milk cap tea, premium milk tea, and fruit tea infusions.
A tea specialist from RoyalTea China brought his expertise to our shores. To share traditional brewing methods ensuring quality in every cup. So unlike Taiwanese milk tea brands that are mostly sweet, the Chinese origins of RoyalTea Philippines give each cup a more indulgent, potent tea flavor. Surely creating a unique taste unlike any other.
High Quality Ingredients (Reason 2)
Another thing that makes RoyalTea Philippines stand out is the quality of ingredients and the blend of its teas. RoyalTea Milk Teas are made with only the most premium, fresh, and natural ingredients. Everything you consume is made with the purpose of serving healthier, better-tasting five-star cups!
In fact, their signature Cheese Teas are known for its rich and creamy cheese froth. Because they are made from 100% pure and authentic New Zealand cream cheese. That perfectly complements the strong base of freshly brewed tea underneath. Tasty and delightful if I must say!
Variety, Variety, Variety (Reason 3)
RoyalTea Philippines is pouring five (5) drink series for us milk tea lovers. Namely the Cheezo Series, Fruit Tea Series, Brown Sugar Series, Milk Tea Series, and the Custard Series.
Say Cheezo! RoyalTea Philippines’ Cheezo Series is a thick, generous serving of soft and creamy New Zealand cheese tops. Up to you to choose your base: freshly-brewed tea, fruit juice, or smoothie. The combination of strong or tangy base definitely enhances the salty sweetness of the milk cap.
Want to keep it light and zesty? Go for the Fruit Tea series at RoyalTea Philippines. A sweet-tangy combination of real fruit juice, fruit bits, and pulp. Mixed with green tea to create a light and texture refreshment perfect to quench your thirst on a hot (summer) day!
Love it rich and sweet? RoyalTea’s Brown Sugar series is the right one for you. Think caramelized brown sugar crystals mixed with streaks of brown sugar syrup. With a generous serving of soft and chewy pearls. You can choose between milk, milk tea, or chocolate as your base.
Or you can also stick to classics with the Milk Tea series. Premium, freshly-brewed black tea infused with creamy New Zealand milk. Giving you a mild yet flavorful fusions with soft pearls or boba.
Now if you’re looking for a little more indulgence, then delight in the Custard Series from RoyalTea Philippines. A sweet, dessert-like beverage that mixes a milk tea or chocolate base with New Zealand fresh milk and soft layers of sweet, creamy custard. If this isn’t pure indulgence, I don’t know what is!
Affordable Milk Teas and Drinks (Reason 4)
Another thing I love about RoyalTea Philippines is its budget-friendly price. Get a cup of their traditional milk tea for as low as Php 85.00 and their Cheezo Tea for just Php 110! Who says premium should always be expensive?
RoyalTea Taft: The Perfect Chill Spot (Reason 5)
Unlike conventional milk tea shops with no or limited seats, the first RoyalTea Philippines store is extra spacious, with many tables and chairs for customers. Which is perfect since it’s located just beside DLSU Taft. Making it an ideal chill spot for catch up or study sessions with your college buddies. WiFi will also be available in store very soon!
Bestsellers at RoyalTea Philippines
During our exclusive media day, we tasted just about everything on the menu. Here are our RoyalTea Philippines Favorites (so far): Cheezo Tea Milktea (Php 110), Grapefruit Cheezo (Php 150), Custard Cake with Pearl Milk Tea (Php 120), Brown Sugar Milk Tea (Php 120), and the Mango Mania.
For one, I loved how the salty-creaminess of the cheezo topping infused beautifully with almost everything! The cream cheese was distinct yet delicate enough to balance the sweetness of the fruit tea and the strength of the premium brewed tea.
I also loved how the sweet, pudding-ish texture of the custard cake blended in with the milk tea. As well as the perfect sweetness and refreshing taste of the brown sugar and mango mania.
