It was one particularly-hot afternoon when I find myself finally checking this quaint tea shop at the local Robinsons Mall. I was just out for some errands at the time and was there to mail some postcards at the 4th floor Post Office and to look for a couple of trendy t-shirts for me and the little man. I was drawn to this tea shop the first time I saw it and was meaning to give it a try since. Only I never had the chance before as we already have an automatic destination whenever we come here, especially with the little man in tow. Now that I am venturing here on my own, I gave in and ordered myself a tall glass of their famous Hokkaido concoction.
I am not sure whether this drink originated from Japan’s second largest island, thus earning its name, or whether it was fashioned after a popular tea there. It would have helped if the woman behind the till was generous with the trivia. But she did mention it was their most popular drink so I was intrigued to check it out. I requested for pearls when she asked for my drink enhancement.
I took a seat in one of their tables outside while waiting for my drink. I cannot help but take some photos. The store is just lovely and I imagine sitting around here while reading a book, or writing away on my gratitude journal or probably writing on a number of postcards or updating my blog on Eve, perhaps. The place is simply cozy and I love their color scheme, the white-and-orange tables and chairs, as well as the beautiful tree wall decals. After a few minutes, my tall tea glass is ready to be consumed.
I love the refreshing tea drink it is just perfect for the hot summer weather like today and the fact that I can also adjust the level of sugar to be put to my tea depending on my preference. I think that it is affordable at Php85 per 22Oz glass. Also, I simply love how my drink turned out, not too sweet and just perfect for my palate. I am sure the little man’s playschool classmate, Kayle, agreed as she asked to have a number of sips from my tea! ^_^
I adore tea drinks and am sure I will go back to this lovely orange-y tea shop soon!
