Well here’s a piece of good news for you tea lovers out there!
Another tea store from Taiwan has set up shop in out shores and, this time, it’s in one of the metro’s favorite shopping mecca, Greenhills Shopping Center!
The first local outlet of the pearl milk tea pioneer Chawanjia, Tea Bubble House carries over the mother brand’s style of using good ingredients and practices in making its drinks.
Tea bubbles (or what we call boba or pearls) have evolved from just mere add-ons to our drinks to elements that provide essential bite textures that add to the uniqueness of our beverage.
Tea Bubble House produces four kinds of cassava-based pearls in-house: mango, dragon fruit, blue and white pearls. The mango and dragon fruit pearls are made with real locally-soutced fruit so each bite gives you that fresh fruity taste. The blue pearls, on the other hand, incorporate the edible butterfly pea flower, giving them that distinct color.
Recently, my foodie friends and I were able to sample some of its six drink series (which come in 500ml and 700ml sizes). These include:
Rainbow Pearl Milk Tea (prices range from Php100 to Php120).
Milky Shake (Php115 each).
Refreshing Fruit Tea (prices range from Php120 to Php135).
Crystal Iced Tea (Php125 each).
Rainbow Specialty (prices range from Php115 to Php130).
Rainbow Fruit Dirty Tea (Php140 each).
Being a sweet-tooth, I naturally gravitated towards the creamy or milkier dessert-type drinks such as the milky shakes and the rainbow fruit dirty teas. I found the interaction of the fruit and tea flavors with the creamy textures quite appealing.
Still, depending on my mood, I would probably find myself going for the lighter and fruitier versions in later visits.
So, before or after a spate of shopping, why not drop by at Tea Bubble House to quench your thirst or sate your bubble tea craving?
Many thanks to Bunny of Always the Funny Girl for extending the invitation and to the folks Tea Bubble House for all those teas!
