Finally Serenitea


If you’re a tea lover and have been living under a rock like me, you probably haven’t tasted Serenitea yet. There’s been a lot of buzz about this new specialty tea shop. While it was a huge hit last year, it still continues to enthrall tea lovers and potentially convert non-tea drinkers. 😉 Well, at least that’s what happened to me and my friends. I’m enthralled, I’m enthralled!

Serenitea Happy

Serenitea has a lot of branches now — Eastwood, North Greenhills, San Juan. I won’t pretend I know exactly how the service is there because I’ve never been to any. But thanks to my sister who has everyday access to the tea shop, she can bring home some tea for me. Happy happy!

What are the bestsellers? My Serenitea-addicted friends advised me to try any of the following milk teas: Wintermelon, Okinawa, Hokkaido and Royal. I’ve tried all four now. If you’re a coffee drinker looking for a tea experience, go for Hokkaido Milk Tea. It’s a cold Assam black tea with a slightly sweet toffee caramel taste. Okinawa Milk Tea is cold Assam black tea with a brown sugar flavor. Wintermelon Milk Tea is cold Assam black tea with a caramelized sugar taste. Royal Milk Tea is cold Earl Grey black tea with fragrant notes. You can personalize your tea with your level of sweetness and ice cubes, and I’ve tried the above with a 50% sweetness level.

Serenitea while burning the midnight oil

Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas so Serenitea’s Royal Milk Tea is my preferred drink. It tastes great with black pearls too. I’ve tried it with panna cotta and nata, but cold milk tea is just not the same without black pearls! A large order of Royal Milk Tea makes for a great companion when burning the midnight oil.

One of these days I’ll visit a Serenitea branch and have myself some Chicken Chops. That’s another major recommendation by my friends. I’ll definitely have to try that! Right now I’m just happy I finally GET the Serenitea craze. I’m finally out from under my rock. Maybe not completely since I haven’t been to an actual store but hey, I heard they deliver. What did I say? I’m enthralled, I’m enthralled!

    Ah there you go, thanks for explaining what the differences are between Hokkaido, Okinawa and Wintermelon! I love all three, so I switch around even if they sort of taste the same. I haven’t tried Royal yet. I’m not really a big fan of tea, so I was hesitant to try Serenitea at first. But now I love it! And it’s an excellent treat especially when it’s so hot outside. :)

    Wow! I want to try this one. I really love eating black pearls. I’m not a tea drinker but may be it will change me to drink this a lot. womens health questions

    Did not expect there to be a milk tea shop in San Juan. This is great!
