Tea Talk

I headed out to have my late night fix of milk tea, which I have been craving for since dinner time. Unfortunately, by the time I got to Serenitea, it was already closed. Then I remembered that there was another tea room named Tea Talk that my friend and I went to get a late night snack and tried to see if they were opened. Sure enough, it was!

Tea Talk is a sophisticated looking tea room located just along Aguirre Avenue inside BF Homes. The first thing that really caught my eye as soon as I parked was the decor. The sparse display of vases and bonsai partnered with the wooded lamps, tables and chairs made the place so welcoming and relaxing. They even have an area where you can sit on the floor (well actually, an elevated wooden surface), kick off your shoes and just relax like you are at home. Thank goodness I didn’t bring my laptop here. With those nice cushions on the floor and free WiFi, I’d probably be still staying there until now.

I made my way to the counter to check out the menu. They have a limited, but okay selection of milk teas, fruit teas, yakult teas and brewed green tea with honey. They also have a number of add ons that you can include in your tea like grass jelly, tapioca pearls, egg pudding, and something quite interesting called popping boba, which are small, fruit-flavored tapiocas which are highly recommended to add on their cold fruit teas.

I chose to get a large chocolate milk tea which cost P100 (about $2.30). For my add on, I chose to get the tapioca pearls for P10 (about $0.23). Mike, the cashier, asked me how sweet do I want my tea. They had three options to choose from: Extra Strength (double the standard sugar level), standard, and lite (less sugar). I chose to get the standard this time.

In addition to tea, Tea Talk also serves a selection of pastries, all priced at P65 (about $1.49). It’s great if you were, like me, looking for a light snack. Mike suggested to try their Banana Choco Chip muffin. It was, apparently, one of their bestsellers.

Instead of having to go back up to the counter to get my order, my order was served to me at my table. I was glad that I chose the standard sweetness level. The sweetness was just right for me. The Banana Choco Chip muffin was okay, although I was hoping it to be a little bit more moist. There was just the right amount of banana and choco in them that the flavors complemented rather than overpower each other.

Tea Talk also has a loyalty card where you get a free large tea of your choice after ordering 10 large teas. With an ambience like this and such excellent service, I think I’ll be filling up my card in no time at all.

Tea Talk is located at 216A Aguirre Avenue, BF Homes, Paranaque City. They are opened from 12 noon until 12 midnight daily.
