Milk Tea and Fruit Tea That’s Healthy and Fresh: Coco Tea!
When in Manila and looking for healthy and yummy tea drinks to beat the heat this summer, Coco Tea is the place to go!
Since the start of the milk tea craze here in Manila, I’ve always been fond of trying out milk tea places, be it the mall type ones or the hole-in-the-wall ones. However, only a few really stand out with their unique flavors or their exceptionally well done usual flavors. The tea competition is tough, I’m telling you!
Well, Coco Tea is the largest milk tea company in the world, and it finally launched its flagship store here in the Philippines this month.

What sets Coco Tea Philippines apart from other commercial tea houses is their commitment to using only the freshest fruits and tea leaves in all of their drinks. They also highlight the fruit juices in their menu, which is good because having something refreshing is a must in today’s hot weather.
I was so happy that we were able to try out all of the fruit juices at a fruit juice bar before the event proper started!

I tasted Lemon Calamansi with Aloe First and it was so good! I could definitely order this every time I go to Coco Tea. But of course, I had to try the other flavours, too.

I can really tell by drinking the Lemon Calamansi with Aloe that the lemon was freshly-squeezed. Coco Tea really adheres to making fresh fruit teas for its customers every time.
Fresh ingredients are the only ones used at Coco Tea Philippines
Larry Evans Tan, the General Manager of Coco Tea Philippines, is the one who welcomed us to the event. He talked about providing only the best milk teas and fruit teas for Coco Tea Philippines customers. I was nodding in approval while sipping my fruit tea.

After the talk, we were teamed up by table to mix and match the ingredients of the fruit tea in order to come up with our personalized blends.
