I dream of summer at Bubba Lab, Lamp Quarters

With the intermittent bursts of rain in the metro, I found myself reminiscing about sunshine and summer.

A few blessed weeks before the start of rainy weather were my first two visits to Lamp Quarters in Marikina. On both those occasions, I decided to cool down and chill out at the tea store located there called Bubba Lab.

Bubba Lab’s concept is that of a laboratory where various elements are mixed and matched by its resident “scienTEAsts” to come up with exciting concoctions to delight its customers who are affectionately called “Labmates.” From the test-tubes, beakers and bunsen burners that decorate the area, to the menu presented as a periodic table of elements, Bubba Lab’s premises present a unique experience for tea lovers.

On my first visit, I opted for the basic drink: a Bubba Lab Milk Tea (Php100/Php110). The tea and milk flavors meshed well together and the pearls were pleasantly chewy.

On my next visit, I had my daughter #ExhibitA with me. I had a Thai Milk Tea (Php100/Php110) which was boldly flavored with Thai herbs and condensed milk, while #ExhibitA got a fruity and refreshing Blueberry Tea (Php90/Php100) for herself. We enjoyed our drinks as we whiled away the midday heat.

The arrival of the rainy season hasn’t diminished my craving for milk tea.

So I definitely wouldn’t mind coming back here to learn about and sample more of Bubba Lab’s tea concoctions… rain or shine.
