LOOK: Malaysian Milk Tea Brand Tealive Is Now in Manila

A new milk tea brand is here in Manila and will soon be your go-to store! Malaysian brand Tealive has just landed in Metro Manila, with their first store located in SM Jazz, Makati.

Tealive was first established in 2017, instantly growing to 700 stores worldwide. It’s not a surprise that the milk tea brand grew so quickly—their drinks are so good!


Have you ever had your milk tea served upside down? That is what makes Tealive’s signature Aren Palm Sugar series significantly unique from any other milk tea out there. If you’re a fan of brown sugar drinks, then you’ve got an idea of what their Aren Palm Sugar series is like. However, I can attest that Tealive’s signature drink is so much better.

Compared to the usual brown sugar drinks, the Aren Palm Sugar series has a whole lot more flavor and it’s more savory. The aren palm sugar is actually an all-natural sweetener sourced from Arenga Pinnata palm trees in Borneo. It’s healthier and less sweet than brown sugar. So, if you’re not a fan of drinks that are too sweet but you’ve always wanted to get into the brown sugar drink trend, the Aren Palm Sugar series is for you.


Because of the thick consistency of the aren palm sugar, your drink is always served upside down to allow the sugar to beautifully flow to the top of the cup, just like lava. This also allows the sweetener to be thoroughly mixed into your drink.

Aside from the signature Aren Palm Sugar series, Tealive also offers a wide variety of beverages and cafe-level coffee drinks. The Indulge Series combines Tealive’s creativity with popular toppings from around the world such as Lotus Biscoff, Oreo, and Salted Caramel, making it possible for people to quench their thirst and satisfy their cravings at the same time.


You can also be sure that you’re drinking only fresh and real ingredients because they brew their tea every day and they only store it for a few hours. The freshness and quality of the tea really make a huge difference.

Their first and flagship store in SM Jazz is pretty spacious with lots of tables and chairs, making it the perfect hangout space for you and your barkada. You can even spend some time working while enjoying their wide variety of drinks. Soon, they will also be serving food to pair with your choice of drink.

Looking for a new milk tea brand to try? Tealive should definitely be at the top of your list. They are available on Grab and they will also be launching their own app for more perks and delivery options.
