Well, here’s some good news for milk tea lovers: Australian milk tea brand Gotcha Fresh Tea has set up shop in the country.
In a small cafe outside Virra Mall in Greenhills, milk tea lovers can drink their fill of Gotcha’s offerings which include signature milk teas, premium milk teas, healthy fresh milk, black sugar, maple sugar, cheese foam teas, collagen teas, coldbrew and yogurt teas.
Taking pride in its slogan “We farm our own tea,” Gotcha handcrafts and brews its drinks made from a single tea plantation in Mount Alishan Taiwan in its bid to guarantee product consistency and quality.
It also champions earth-friendliness with its reusable cups, a worthy advocacy in my book.
During the shop’s Grand Opening, I was treated to one of Gotcha’s drinks, the Oreo Cheese Macchiato (Php145) in which the tea flavor is tempered by the creamy milk, with added mild saltiness from the cheese topping as well as sweetness and texture from the crushed Oreo cookies.
As far as dessert drinks to go, this was ok but not particularly exceptional.
My friends, on the other hand, were able to try out other flavors such as:
Strawberry Yogurt (Php130).
Peach Collagen Tea (Php140).
Taro Milk (Php135).
There was great variety when it came to drink options but given its cafe setup, offering food items would be a good move.
Thanks to Kian of Kian Ventures for extending the invitation for this event!
Gotcha Fresh Tea is located at Ground Floor, V-Mall, Greenhills Shopping Center, Greenhills, San Juan.
