It was a Friday, the evening after my monthly publishers meeting and after learning about this new milk tea place from no other than my boss, Paul and I thought of having our after-dinner drinks there. I met J, the owner of the said milk tea place and on my first sip of Hokkaido Milk Tea...I got to say, my life was never the same.
I got truly addicted. A cup was enough to calm my nerves as I went through intense preparation for our BIG day. It was my happy pill as I would always drop by to get my favorite drink on my way home from work. I couldn't stop talking about it offline..online...to the point that I've spread the milk tea love bug everywhere. In fact, the Food Club's first dinner out ended with us having some milk tea.
The milk tea fad spread far and wide. A lot have opened in almost every mall, in every corner of town. Some brought in foreign franchises, others took the plunge with their own creations.
Now, this is where it becomes a deal breaker. I have a very acidic stomach and a little bit too much tea content can easily upset my tummy. In fact, I would always request that stores double brew my tea to tame the caffeine level. Sadly, some milk teas still makes me sick after drinking thus I stay away from them as much as I could. Only a few has made the cut and I stuck loyal to them for years.
Well, I'm happy to share that SerendipiTEA's milk tea passed with flying colors. I enjoyed my cup of milk tea down to the last pearl. No queasy feeling! Hooray! :) I also love that the milk tea wasn't too sweet. It was a refreshing drink indeed.
