Tea’s the season: Salamat, Shopee and Serenitea

You would think that things would be winding down by the end of the year, but for many, the holiday season can be a stressful time.

This is why we should grasp any moment of serenity we can get. It is that feeling of calm and peace that comes from having an untroubled mind.

For centuries, the soothing effects of tea have been celebrated as way to de-stress and achieve inner peace.

ShopeeXSerenitea
ShopeeXSerenitea

Local tea brand Serenitea has made the achievement of inner peace central to its brand concept. As one of the tea pioneers on the country, it helped usher in tea drinking amongst a mostly coffee-drinking populace by brewing teas using an espresso machine and customizing drinks according to sweetness levels and by adding sinkers.

Thanks to its co-branded partnership with e-commerce giant Shopee, Serenitea offers up delicious moments of serenity to milk tea fans with exclusive promos leading to and during the 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, accessible via the Shopee mobile app.

12% off on ALL Serenitea drinks

From November 26 to December 11, Shopee users can shop for milk tea drinks and enjoy a 12% discount.

1 Peso Flash Sale at Seascape Village

Among the things we love so much about going to coastal provinces is the calming and welcoming presence of the sea: the relaxing sound of the waves and wind, the laid-back atmosphere and, of course, the abundance of fresh and flavorful seafood.

There is a place right here in the metro where we can enjoy all three and we don’t even have to travel outside the city to get there. We Metro Manila denizens can have our own seaside escape at Seascape Village.

This sprawling complex combines top restaurants of varying concepts and origins with stalls of fresh seafood and an amazing view of Manila Bay. Here, foodies can converge with their friends and families to enjoy an exciting blend of cuisine, culture and community. Food can be ordered from the restaurants’ ala carte menus or can be cooked according to the diner’s choice using the fresh seafood from the clean and modern wet market conveniently located within the complex.

November: Chicken

3 Cups Chicken at Asian Taste Seafood Restaurant.. Also called sanbeiji, this Taiwanese braised poultry dish got its name from the traditional use of 1 cup each of soy sauce, sesame oil and rice wine. Basil, ginger, garlic and spring onions are added to flavor the dish. Legend has it that a sympathetic prison warden prepared this dish (using these limited number of ingredients) for the Chinese poet and patriot Wen Tianxiang prior to his execution ordered by Kublai Khan.
