A girly favorite
Smile 2012-12-04
My niece is fond of drinking Teas. So when we saw SerendipiTea, such a catchy name, she asked me to buy her one. We we're confused on what to order since it is very new to us. She told me she like the Strawberry milk tea because it's pink and strawberry, so girly.

 

Strawberry Milk Tea

We both like how their strawberry milk tea was prepared. It feels like having a yogurt and a tea at the same time. Not too sweet to capture the strawberry flavor.

Dark Chocolate Milk Tea with Peppermint
Smile 2012-09-21
There's no doubt that Serenitea and Moon leaf are one of the best milk tea place in the Philippines. But there is another one that may be you have not discovered yet, My Serendipitea. I discovered it when me and my friend were looking for a place to chitchat in Timog. I asked the crew what their best sellers are. They recommended their SPECIAL TEA DRINKS. They said you can't find on other milk tea place. So, I ordered for Dark Chocolate Milk Tea with Peppermint for only P110.

 

It tastes really good. They were right. I never tasted this from others. Even if the sweetness level is 100%, it was not that sweet. I love the taste of peppermint. It doesn't taste like medicine syrup. Plus, you won't feel any tea residue on your tongue. I heard they will expand their business by franchising.

MySerendipiTEA
Smile 2012-08-14
It was an abrupt invitation from OpernRice Philippines. Good thing that I am available even on a short notice and the venue is really accessible from where I live. I saw this place weeks ago when I met my college friend at My SerendipiTea's neighboring cocktails and pastries restaurant at the foot of Cocoon Boutique Hotel. Hence, traveling to the said event place was never a problem anymore as I've memorized my the way going there.

It is one of the growing tea shops in the Metro and the name is really amusing - My SerendipiTea. It is as if you are destined to be drinking your favorite tea concoction there. The place is humble and small and quite pretty because of the decors and pieces surrounding the tiny little space. WIFI connection was really fast so you could enjoy surfing the internet while sipping your hot or cold tea. The place is known to be using only the freshest, authentic and unique blend and all of their raw mats were sourced from Taiwan, the popular tea capital of the world.

 

We were given small paper cups which showed their Top 10 Drinks. I daresay you should try each in order or not in order so that you can also have a personal taste and say about their best sellers. Let me summarize them for you:
SerendipiTea Milk Tea, Royal Milk Tea, Oreo Milk Tea, Dark Chocolate Mlk Tea , Wintermelon Milk Tea, Taro Milk Tea, Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese , Lychee Fruit Tea, Cranberry Fruit Tea, and Mango Yakult. We were even sampled with their latest offering known as Macchiato with coffee jelly.

 

Right after the taste test moment which we undeniably made our own opinions sharing one drink to another, we were given the chance to sample any drink of our choice. Out of the Top 10 guess what I ordered? See those tall cups above. Well of course it is one of them.

 

I chose Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese It is a 160z drink worth PhP90 from the CREAMYDESTEANY portion of the menu. Really creamy in texture particularly the top portion which I tend to sip and drink in a frugal manner. I just can't help its awesome goodness. Extreme happiness.

 

Openrice Philippines, bloggers and OpenRicers shared an awesome tea experience. Thanks a bunch for this moment. A repeat transaction is a must smile

Serendipitea :D
Smile 2012-07-31
I love how different milk tea place are named, especially serendipiTEA. For me, it is the most creative yet. Or maybe i just like what serendipity means. Anyways, as for the review of the store. Just like all the other teas, it taste actually the same. The only difference is that this one taste more natural, if you know what I mean. I really am glad that we are on the Milk Tea Craze Era right now. Milk tea has a lot of benefits! So grab one. Not just because it’s the new addiction of the peeps in the Metro. But because tea has more health benefits and less caffeine than coffee but that doesn’t mean that coffee does not have its own health benefits. So yeaaa, i love it too.

The world of SerendipiTea
Smile 2012-07-19
My SerendipiTea served us some milk tea shots. Here's how I find their drinks:

1. SerendipiTea Milk Tea with Pearls and Pudding

This is their signature drink. And I must say they made a good choice. The blend of milk and tea was just right. Not that sweet and not that tea-ish. I like its simplicity. As for the pearls and pudding. Its alright. I don't have any thing to say about it.

2. Royal Milk Tea

Nah. It had a tea-ish taste which was stronger that SerendipiTea Milk Tea. I would recommend this for those who love the overwhelming taste of tea rather than the milk. The tea used tastes great though, I just didn't want too much tea in the mix.

3. Oreo Milk Tea

What can I say? Its like cereal. No offense but I really didn't taste the oreos in the milk tea. I thought the oreos was just there to give decoration. If it had beene mixed with the drink it would have been better.

4. Dark Chocolate Milk Tea with Peppermint

Perfect! I loved this drink! From the moment I tasted it, it became my top favorite. I could say the dark chocolate itself taste great alone. But then they added peppermint to the mix which made the drink so unbearable to the senses.

5. Wintermelon Milk Tea

After I tasted this, I still couldn't stop thinking about Milk Tea Shot #4. Fortunately I made it through and made myself a conclusion. This drink is too damn sweet, but i like it! Just not as good as dark choco peppermint.

6. Taro Milk Tea

The taste of ube was here. But still, I couldn't distinguish it a taro drink. For me lacks taste and perfection in texture. Its still a bit slimy.

7. Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese

This is a great drink, I tell you. The top of the shot contains the rocksalt and cheese which really intensifies the taste buds once you take a sip. I suggest you drink this without straw so you can feel the intensity of its drink. Its a bit sweet and with a kick of rocksalt.

8. Lychee Fruit Tea

Like I said earlier, I love it how fruits blend in with milk teas. This was unsurprisingly good. I knew it from the moment I saw the drink placed in front of me, this would make a good drink for me. It's refreshing taste and mouth-watering abilities can really make you hyper!

9. Cranberry Fruit Tea

All I can say from this drink is that it very strong. If you happen to eat cranberries, you would love this drink for one sip from it can make you imagine you're like eating the real fruit itself.

10. Mango Yakult

This drink is a good balance of Lactobacillus casei Shirota and carbohydrates. You have Mango and you have Yakult. The taste was really good and I almost made this top of my list. The mango used had enough sweetness to blend with Yakult.

11. Caramel Macchiato with Coffee Jelly

This drink had a strong coffee taste. One sip and you can know how much coffee was used in the mix. I see this drink suitable for people who loves the strong taste and aroma of coffee in the morning.

And here's how I rated my milk tea shots!

Ohh. Looks like someone made a pyramid of milk tea shots. Peppermint rules! smile

The owners of My Serendipitea were really accommodating and friendly! lol They even gave us complementary drinks just so their milk tea would sink in more. I got my self a Green Tea something drink smile) And it was delicious!

 

 

What I really like about this place is the ambiance. Though it was quite small and only a few people could fit inside, it was a great place to stay and hang out. Cool place you got here, My SerendipiTea. *thumbs up* smile

You call it My SerendipiTea
Smile 2012-07-19

This cute little tea shop is a bit small for a usual tambayan place I've encountered, though it can accommodate roughly around 15 customers. A bit bright place, I felt a warm welcome as I entered because of its ambiance. The lovely owners of My SerendipiTea, Angela and Iris, prepared some delicatessen for us since they do not serve food meals and also to neutralize our taste buds while food tasting their teas. This is their first branch and it's running for 7 months already, their second branch is located in Pampanga. The ingredients for their drinks is directly from Taiwan and is freshly brewed daily, that's why their drinks have authentic taste.

1. SerendipiTea Milk Tea with Pearls and Pudding
~ Simple yet amazingly delicious. This is an example of a good blend between milk and tea - just right to be their signature drink. The pearls were soft enough to chew without much effort and the pudding has just-enough-sweetness and good texture.

2. Royal Milk Tea
~ Compare to SerendipiTea Milk Tea, this one has a stronger tea flavor - a kick. I would definitely order this since I'm the person who wants a milk tea that is not-so-milky-sweet-but-a-bittersweet-drink.

3. Oreo Milk Tea
~ Sometimes curiosity doesn't end up in a good way. The oreo bits did not blend well with my milk tea. It felt like I'm eating cereals. This is a good twist on milk teas however, for me, it needs a little improvement.

4. Dark Chocolate Milk Tea with Peppermint
~ Oh, just the perfect blending for a unique milk tea. Not your ordinary milk tea, the flavors are really distinguishable that makes the drink really good! This is a good example of a Peppermint Bark (chocolate mint candy) turned into a refreshing milk tea drink.

5. Wintermelon Milk Tea
~ It's sweet. Really sweet. I suggest to lessen the sugar level of this drink especially for those who doesn't want their milk tea to be sugary-milk-tea. I liked the Coffee Jelly sinkers, which was served to us together with this drink, just enough texture and coffee essence.

6. Taro Milk Tea
~ Grainy texture. Thick and slimy-feeling drink. Well-blended, I guess? Since I'm really not a fan of Taro.

7. Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese
~ I love the bittersweet taste of dark cocoa. The rock salt and cheese was fine, not so distinguishable when I sip, maybe because the serving wasn't that much at that moment. But I can say, the rock salt and cheese combination was really good. Definitely a must try!

8. Lychee Fruit Tea
~ It's really a refreshing drink. It has the right sweetness of lychee combined with the tea essence. An option between Black or Green Tea can be used on this drink. This drink reminded me of a lychee flavored jellyace! Kids would really adore this drink.

9. Cranberry Fruit Tea
~ The cranberry was really distinguishable. Strong taste - a bit bitter for me. Good thing the cognac jelly sinkers were helpful on giving sweetness on the drink.

10. Mango Yakult
~ A refreshing drink with the right blending between the mango juice and Yakult.

11. Caramel Macchiato with Coffee Jelly
~ A unique variety of My SerendipiTea's drink offerings. You wouldn't find this kind of drink in a usual milk tea shop. I love how the mildy strong creamy coffee flavor remains on my taste buds. Coffee Jelly was just perfect to this coffee-based drink; I really liked the texture of their coffee jelly.

 

Good thing they served us small amount of their drinks! I can't imagine myself drinking those 11 flavors at their normal size for one sitting! So that's how I ranked my teas for the day.
But wait, there's more! They gave us complimentary drinks of our choice! Variety of teas at the counter table just for us. lol

 

And for my complimentary drink, I'm really a fan of green tea so even though it's on with the list of teas we've food taste, I risk myself ordering this.

 

"Your fate in our cup of tea."
Green Tea with Rock Salt and Cheese ~ How adorable. I love the taste of the green tea that blends well on the creamy rock salt and cheese when I sip. Just enough amount of this creamy goodness. I love the floral essence that the green tea gives, its flavor is just right for my cup of tea.

Service: The staff were really polite and brought a positive vibes throughout our stay. They are bubbly and really accommodating. They were also well-trained and knowledgeable on milk teas. They also didn't let it too long for our finished cups to stay in our tables and they maintained cleanliness on their place.

Ambiance: Free WIFI zone! This is really ideal for people who doesn't wants to stay offline. The place is really not that big that can accommodate roughly 15 people. They also have couches for a more comfortable bonding sensation with friends. Aside from bonding with friends and staying online at this place, it's also a good place to study. Though a bit bright because of the sunlight, the area stays well ventilated.

Thank you so much Angela and Iris of My SerendipiTea for having us here. The tea samplers were already enough however they also gave us token ~ thoughtful lovely owners! I was really happy tasting your drinks and we've all got 'milk tears' of joy! This is really a must try for everyone (especially those who live in QC area) who's in love with milk tea like me!

My Serendipitea: A Happy Milk Tea Accident
Smile 2012-07-19
Ever since the milk tea era started here in the Philippines, I have ventured high and low just to taste the fine milk teas in the metro. I am a milk tea addict and I just couldn't get enough!

Last Saturday, I was able to attend my very first Eat's A Date event at My Serendipitea which is in the Coco Boutique Hotel at Brgy, Laging Handa, Quezon City. Imagine how happy I was when I found out that it was a milk tea shop!

 

We were warmly welcomed by the owners, Angela & Iris, who were both so sweet and kind enough to give us a background of their business. My Serendipitea originated from Taiwan which uses actual tea leaves in their ingredients. Safe to say that this drink is healthy! There's only one branch as of the moment but as we've heard, My Serendipitea will be invading the south area very soon ;)

Enough chitchat! Let's go to the drinks! We were given samples of their specialties so that we could decide which one to have after the taste test.

 

Here are some of the drinks that we have tried during the event. Just so you have a picture of what you're ordering in case you go there smile

So here's my review on the following drinks:

1.) Serendipitea Milk Tea
perfect blend of milk and tea. It's not too sweet nor too bland and what really stands out with this drink is the pudding! It's delicious! Quality at its finest!

2.) Royal Milk Tea
if you want your tea leaves stronger then this drink is for you. After taking a sip of this drink, you will notice the after taste of the freshly boiled tea leaves. Bittersweet feeling!

3.) Oreo Milk Tea
With the name itself, this drink is a combination of milk tea and oreo. I find this drink plain. It's not creamy and the flavor is not distinct and there were bits of oreo that sagged for a short while which is not my type of drink. Kudos to them still for trying out something new!

4.) Dark Chocolate Peppermint Milk Tea
I was never a fan of peppermint drinks because I find the taste somewhat related to toothpastes. But when I tried this, OH MY. I fell in love! It's a soothing taste that just takes away your stress and gives you that refreshing feeling thanks to the hint of peppermint. I am probably overreacting but I swear I felt like a kid sipping a cup of this drink during Christmas. Definitely my favorite drink!

5.) Wintermelon Milk Tea
If you're a fan of wintermelon teas, then you will definitely love this. It's sweet and the coffee jelly made it more flavorful. I never thought that wintermelon and coffee jellies would make a great combination!

6.) Taro Milk Tea
As you can see from the photo above, this drink is purple. It's also grainy because of the taro bits and it kinda reminds me of ginataang saging. I think there's too much taro flavor on this drink.

7.) Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt & Cheese
The thing about this drink is that I've tried this flavor in all the milk tea shops that I could ever find but this one simply stands out. The 3 main ingredients are very distinct. I hate it when they just all mix up and you can't tell if there's rock salt and cheese. But this one doesn't and they used a might fine dark cocoa. I enjoyed sipping my cup and just letting the flavors linger in my tongue.

8.) Zesty Lychee Fruit Tea
The perfect drink when it's hot and you're thirsty. This drink will surely refresh you! I love lychees so I quite enjoyed this drink!

9.) Cranberries
ugh. I am not a fan of cranberries! what's more the cranberries in this drink were too strong. I think they should reconsider the amount of cranberries that they put.

10.) Mango Yakult
Very sour, but the good kind (if you love sour drinks that is). As much as I love this drink I need to stop myself because I'm acidic. sad

11.) Caramel Macchiato with Coffee Jelly
Surprised with their latest flavor. It's a strong drink which boosts up your senses! Perfect for those who needs a kick after a long day or for those who are getting ready for an intense study session!

 

As you can see, you can get the best quality milk tea drink at an affordable cost!
Worth every piso!

 

This is how Cla and I ranked the drinks (pyramid system). The top most cup is our favorite drink!

 

Our favorite drinks served <3

The always smiling staff! It actually feels a lot better when you're milk tea is served with a smile smile

Ambiance: The place is clean and very relaxing. Plus it's a FREE WIFI ZONE so it's the perfect place to hang out, relax and just browse though the internet or read a good book (ahem fifty shades) while having a cup of milk tea.

Thank you so much OpenRice and My Serendipitea for giving me the best Eat's A Date experience!

Cool Treats at My SerendipiTea
Smile 2012-07-18

Upon entering, there is only one problem that I’ve encountered with the ambiance – too bright to relax in. I suggest the installation of blinds so that customers could manage the amount of natural light. The space is quite small but still manageable.

The interior was of minimalist design – which is a good thing to aid you in relaxing (Most people get their milk tea to relax and not think of more complications).

You could see the menu with images of their own products, giving hints on what would be a good pick! The kitchen is well organized making sure that services are put out neatly and fast!

 

The kind owners sponsored us samplers of their top 10 milk teas plus a new selection – the Caramel Macchiato! They didn’t just give us free drinks but also snacks to eat!

Now for the review of the 11 samplers:

1. SerendipiTea Milk Tea with Pearls and Pudding – Soft – amply sweet and not strong in tea flavor. The pearls are perfectly chewy while the pudding was just right with its sweetness.

2. Royal Milk Tea – Sweeter than the SerendipiTea Milk Tea and had a mild floral essence.

3. Oreo Milk Tea – Not your typical milk tea but sure gave a different creamy and crunchy kick. Imagine drinking mild tea while eating oreos and there you have it!

4. Dark Chocolate Milk Tea with Peppermint – Smooth and refreshing. Perfect mix of bitterness and ample sweetness with that cooling sensation! Definitely a good treat! The dark chocolate took over the taste of the tea, but anyway, they’re both bitter right? lol

5. Wintermelon Milk Tea – Although the drink itself is densely sweet that became very salient over the milk and tea itself, the coffee jelly sinkers were delectable- light and rich of coffee essence!

6. Taro Milk Tea – Thick and a bit sticky to the palate. Malty and was perfectly sweet. And it sure had the feel of drinking taro juice!

7. Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese – Similar to the 4th drink(Dark Choco…) stated above, the difference is the sweet luscious cream and that follow up salty punch, minus the peppermint, of course!

8. Lychee Fruit Tea – Sweet, including the added sweetness of the konjac jelly. The lychee taste was right and up to its expected taste!

9. Cranberry Fruit Tea – A bit rough and a bit too sweet too. The cranberry flavor however, was perfect! Just like the lychee!

10. Mango Yakult – Both treacly and acerbic! My eyes closed tightly by themselves upon drinking it.

Drinks number 8,9 and 10 surely need a bit more ice or better yet decrease the sugar level if ordering them! They’re too acidic that you need to eat before you drink! lol

And their new product,

Caramel Macchiato – Mildly strong, brown sugary taste, creamy, smooth and a bit sweet. Followed up by coffee jelly sinkers, you’d be awake in no time! lol

 

These are our complimentary drinks! We were glad to come here to experience their fresh and natural milk teas – Yes, they make both the tea(using authentic tea leaves!) and the sinkers by themselves daily! My pick, Wild Blueberry, was not included in the top 10 list but still opted for it since I’m in the mood for something fruity! The drink was smooth and cool. Mildly sweet and not too acidic! And like the other fruit teas that we’ve tasted, the blueberry taste sure is the taste of blueberry!

 

The service crew were very accommodating and approachable. They work with courteousness and speed at the same time! The service, overall, is a 10/10 for me!

The owners, Angela and Iris were very thoughtful that they even gave us tokens of appreciation(the milk tea samplers, food and complimentary milk tea was already enough!)! Thank you so much Angela and Iris, and also OpenRice for this experience!

My SerendipiTea Experience
Smile 2012-07-18
So my blogger friend, Margaret, invited us to be food tasters for OpenRice PH. Yours truly, together with my boyfriend and college friends, confirmed for the Saturday schedule. We were assigned to rate and review this little Taiwanese tea shop along Scout Tobias, called "My SerendipiTea." smile I did not hesitate to attend since you all know that I'm a milk tea connoisseur and I am up for the challenge of searching the best milk tea places here in the metro!

It actually surprised me that the venue is just small but cute! The event started at 10am, just right for breakfast. It was so nice of My SerendipiTea to prepare some delicatessen for us to munch on in between our drinks! Before the food tasting started, the beautiful owners, Angela and Iris, shared a little history about the humble beginnings of My SerendipiTea.

We have come to know that the ingredients they use were sourced directly from Taiwan. They once tried using local ingredients but they didn't give justice to the drinks. Their tea blends are freshly brewed daily and they do not use powdered ingredients, which makes My SerendipiTea’s drinks authentic to the taste. smile

 

So I’ll discuss how My SerendipiTea’s Top 11 drinks taste like!

1. SerendipiTea Milk Tea with Pearls and Pudding
Heavenly! The tea essence can still be tasted. It has the right amount of sweetness so you'll never get the nakaka-umay feeling while drinking this. The pearls were chewy and the pudding had the right texture. Angela and Iris said that this drink falls under the special tea category since you won't be able to find this blend in other tea shops. smile

2. Royal Milk Tea
Just the same as the SerendipiTea Milk Tea, but this one has a stronger blend. You can still recognize the essence of the tea in your taste-buds! This is what I really look for in a milk tea blend, the it's-not-all-milk-and-sugar-it's-still-the-taste-of-the-tea-that-counts! smile

3. Oreo Milk Tea
It was my first time to encounter a milk tea blend like this, so I can say that it's a must try! The Oreo bits blended nicely with the milk tea and it gave the drink a new twist. And it's nice that instead of chewing the usual pearls, nata de coco, or pudding, you can chew on soft Oreo bits instead!

4. Dark Chocolate Milk Tea with Peppermint
Though I am not a chocolate lover, I can say that this blend is divine because it's so refreshing! It has the right chocolatey blend, and the peppermint gave me the Christmas-like feeling while downing this drink. It was very obvious that this drink was a crowd favorite because most of the attendees ordered this right away!

5. Wintermelon Milk Tea
This was kind of saccharine for me so I suggest that you opt for a lesser sugar blend. smile However, the coffee jelly sinkers made me appreciate this drink because it gave a cool taste transition, from sipping something sweet, to chewing something bittersweet! This is My SerendipiTea's second bestseller.

6. Taro Milk Tea
This is a full-bodied ube milk tea so it feels heavy on the mouth! The texture is kinda powdery due to the nature of ube, but the aroma is a winner. Very flavorful!

7. Dark Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese
This is their bestseller drink! The bittersweet cocoa taste complemented well with the salty cream essence. I repeat that I'm not a chocolate fan, but I was able to like this! Best drank without the straw, so you'll be able to gulp the dark cocoa, and lick the rock salt and cheese on your palate!

8. Zesty Lychee Fruit Tea
This drink is nectar to my lips. smile It has a light blend, it's refreshing, and best served when ice-cold. The tea essence was very prominent! It reminded me of the lychee jellyace with nata de coco in its center!

9. Cranberry Fruit Tea
The cranberry taste overpowered the tea. And just like the Lychee Fruit Tea, this is best served when ice-cold! The blend was too strong but the cognac jellies neutralized the sourness. smile

10. Mango Yakult
This drink is like a plain mango juice with the sweety acidic taste of Yakult!

11. Caramel Macchiato with Coffee Jelly
It's nice to end our drink tasting session with a cup of cold coffee! This blend added a variety to My SerendipiTea's drink offerings. It has a mild blend and perfect for those who want to opt for a coffee that's not too strong. The coffee jelly added a kick and boldness to the drink!

 

After the drink tasting, we had a chance to order the drink of our choice for free. I ordered the drink that gave me the love-at-first-sip-feeling, the SerendipiTea Milk Tea with Pearls and Pudding! smile

 

Service:
My SerendipiTea's service was very pleasing. The staff were very courteous and polite to us. They can also answer questions easily regarding our milk tea-related questions. Even though they prepared 10 drinks after the drink tasting, they didn't make us wait too long. They were every accommodating too and made us feel at home during out stay. smile So I give them an A+ for service! You guys really aim to please! lol

Ambiance:
About the ambiance, the place was small but it had this cozy and warm feel. It would roughly fit more or less 15 people, I guess. I loved the comfy couches! If you're near the place, you can actually study here cause it's open until 2am. The place has a fast wifi connection so it's very convenient to stay here. The area was well ventilated too!

Thank you so much My SerendipiTea for having us this day! Everyone's so happy, we cried milk tea-rs of joy! Haha! smile I wanna visit this place again if I'm near the Scout area. And guys, I'm suggesting that you give My SerendipiTea a try! You'll not regret your visit! For just Php65-110, you'll get a delicious cup of milk tea that will surely wake up your senses. smile

A day at Serendipitea
Smile 2012-07-17
Description: Variations of MILK and FRUIT teas with toppers and sinkers. "Your Fate in Our cup of Tea"

   MINI CUPS TEA TRIAL

These were the mini cups for tea trial

   Santi's ham, cheese and salami

Oh how generous the owner was to give us complimentary foods by Santi's.

   What I got for myself: SerendipiTEA milk tea

This is what I got for myself after trying different teas! One of their best sellers, oops their top 1 drink, the SERENDIPITEA MILK TEA! Tasting this was like recalling my visit to Vietnam because they have the best egg pudding ever and as what I've said I define it as TASTY or TASTEA! smile

   The creamy cheese at the top of the drinks

The cream cheese at the top of these drinks were really inviting and mouth-watering. These were ordered by fellow openricers. One green tea with rock salt and cheese and dark cocoa with rock salt and cheese. Pure and yes, fattening!

   Finished products with visible sinkers

Finished products. Freshly sealed with visible sinkers like pearls, chewy crystals and Konjac jelly. Of course, they offer more like puff cream and coffe jelly plus toppers like aloe vera pops, Mesona jelly, Azuki beans and Oreo cookies and cream.

 Cute tea pot and cups

Look! How cute were the tea pot and cups! It matches the interior which was basically apple green.

   The pricelist

Lastly, the price were reasonable and affordable! For sweet karma series they offer hot and cold which prices range only P65 (12oz), P75 (17 oz) and P95-100 (24 oz) and Fruit TEA chance for only P75 or P85. The sinkers for only P15, P20 and P30.

Personal Review:

I’ve always had a meticulous taste when it comes to milk tea and I must say that Serendipitea located at ground level of Cocoon Boutique Hotel has its distinction and offers to be proud of. When I finally arrived, I found the place really awesome for a tea date. The owner happened to prepared ten mini cups for us to taste their different flavors. These are mango Yakult, Serendipitea milk tea, dark cocoa with rock salt and cheese, taro milk tea, berry milk tea, dark chocolate milk tea with peppermint, royal milk tea, Oreo milk tea, cranberry fruit tea and Zesty lychee fruit tea. My most favorites were Serendipitea, dark cocoa with rock salt and cheese and taro. Serendipitea has an egg-pudding that tastes like a leche flan plus the tea wasn’t too much but you still it was indeed tasty! They guarantee their products or teas to be 100 % freshly brewed everyday!
