I am slowly being turned into a milk tea addict, I think. I guess, probably, just second to my coffee addiction. With a lot of brewed tea and milk tea places and personal beverage machines around adding to the Filipino's desire to have healthier alternatives, one would be drawn to this craze, especially, if it really tastes good and refreshing.
I have been given an opportunity to try out Cha Dao Tea Place, with some Gift CerTEAficates to use. So I brought my family and trooped to their Don Antonio Heights branch the other day to try out their milk teas. Cha Dao Tea Place is not only known for its "reasonably low prices, but also for the good quality of its products." All drinks are made with freshly brewed tea, infused with milk and fruit extracts.
Cha Dao Tea Place has an extensive menu, offering an array of over 30 different flavors ranging from milk to fruit teas, to suit every customers need and preference. In addition, customers can tailor fit their orders by choosing their own toppings, sugar level and ice preparation – making each cup a truly personalized drink.
We got to try the Matcha Milk Tea, Assam Milk Tea, Classic Milk Tea and the Wintermelon Milk Tea. All of them with pearls, of course :) Out of the four that I have tried, I like the Classic Milk Tea, then the Wintermelon Milk Tea (at light sugar level), then the Matcha Milk Tea (at light sugar level), and the Assam Milk Tea. I do not really like my milk tea that sweet, so I guess, next time, I would opt getting light sugar level for all my drinks. P.S., my name is Brian and not Braian. :))
Cha Dao Tea Place is quickly becoming known for the affordability of its drinks. Compared to other milk tea shops, Cha Dao Tea Place offers quality drinks that fit a students budget – nothing over seventy five pesos. This is almost half the price of other milk tea retailers. Not to mention, their shops look really good and cool to the eyes. Also, they have free protected WiFi. Just ask the counter for the password ;)
Cha Dao Tea Place first opened its doors to the public last June 2011 at Katipunan, Quezon City. After only two months of operation in the first branch, the demand for the product has led to the rapid expansion of the company. As of September 2011, Cha Dao Tea Place operates three more branches in Don Antonio, Commonwealth; Kapitolyo, Pasig; and Maginhawa, Teachers Village; and there are two more branches slated for October.
