A little tea won’t hurt

Patricia May P. Catan

THE number of milk tea lovers in Cebu is hitting an all-time high as the number of milk tea shops in the city is also significantly rising. Whether one is curious customer or a true-blue enthusiast, there’s no stopping people from joining the milk tea craze in town. There’s also no denying that this sweet beverage’s popularity is off the charts, and to prove that is the addition of this, currently, most-raved about milk tea shop in the Queen City: A Little Tea Philippines

A Little Tea Philippines brings together notable and delightful flavors of milk tea from around the globe to create a world-class milk tea taste for Cebuanos. Its first-ever branch in Cebu opened on June 28, at Elizabeth Mall where it all started. Due to the overwhelming positive reception in that branch, four other branches were set up in the next five months: Gaisano Grand Fiesta Mall Tabunok, Cebu IT Park, Gaisano Island Mall and Grand Mall Basak.

With its unique blend of milk tea, the shop stands out from other brands. Its classic milk tea selections are what its customers frequently praise enthusiastically. Both the black sugar milk tea and cake milk tea are top bestsellers among its fruit tea series and yogurt selections. The milk tea shop also offers fresh milk, matcha and cocoa plus toppings.

With a mixture boasting the finest milk tea flavors in the world, and—according to the brand—the only milk tea shop that uses little pearls, A Little Tea is a contender for Cebu’s favorite milk tea. That said, the booming milk tea business plans to open more stores soon at Gaisano Grand Mandaue Centro, Parkmall, Island Central Mall, Mactan Newtown, Ayala Center Cebu and Gaisano Carcar.

A Little Tea, being one of the aggressive players in the milk tea industry, is now targeting other locations in the country like Davao, Bacolod, Boracay, Antique and Kidapawan as prospects for its branches outside of Cebu.
