I love milk tea. But after exploring various milk tea shops in the Metro, I found a few that is really worth coming back to. Truthfully, I only visit those shops and I don’t give new milk tea shops a second glance anymore (except when their name sounds funny. Trust me, there are a lot!). However, I found something interesting one day. I wanted to get a snack before heading home so I passed by this newly-opened 7-Eleven branch near our village. As I passed by the ice cream section on my way to the cashier, my eye caught the words – MILK TEA.
I know it’s hard to believe but guilt-free and healthy milk tea options do exist, all thanks to the newest milk tea bar in the metro. The place is called UltraKappu Milk Tea Bar located at Bali Garden Residences, South Zuzuarragui Street, Old Balara Quezon City. UltraKappu (urutorakappu) literally means “ULTRA CUP”. They are a 100% Filipino startup with a name and theme loosely inspired by Japanese superheroes like Ultraman. Cool, eh? I think it’s super! Their ingredients; however, are imported from the original birthplace of milk tea which is Taiwan.

I love coffee and bubble tea. But in this Japanese fusion restaurant, I discovered their so-called Japanese Cheesecake Cream which I am adding to my list.
Though there are various tea shops in the country with prices ranging from Php60 to Php150, drinking it on a regular basis can be quite expensive. It can even get more expensive if you’re craving for more than one add-on. So what can you do if you’re on TEApid mode? Simple. Prepare your own! By the way, this post is not sponsored. I just enjoy Nestea’s milk tea flavored powdered drinks. It comes in Wintermelon, Hokkaido-style, Taro and Thai-style. I often drink Wintermelon because it is my ultimate fave when it comes to milk tea. Recently, I tried the Hokkaido-style, Thai-style and their newest flavor Taro. All three are delicious and very unique. If you love milk teas, you should really get one of each because it gives you a different kind of experience. Having said that, are you ready to know how to prepare your own milk tea at home? If you want to keep things simple, just pour a sachet into a glass and add in a small amount of hot water. Stir …
