TeaMi Now Available at League One Southgate Tower (former Alphaland Magallanes)

The milk-tea craze is as crazy as ever and if you're getting overwhelmed by all the choices. And here's another good news for you because I was able to get a chance to experience and catch a new player in this market and expanding at least 10 branches this year all over Metro Manila.

I had a great time during the opening of TeaMi milk tea house. I was able to drink Blueberry Dirtea and the Matcha Milktea. I had a challenge to look for it the first time but will it will be impossible for you not to notice it within the building because if you will be on your way to the escalator going down or up from or to the 2nd floor of this building, you'll be able to see this classy cozy place.

I particularly like the Dirtea variants, probably because it fits my personality wherein the milk tea may look messy but really is very tasty and you can taste the flavor of what you've ordered.

You can check out the menu I posted in youtube for your reference and particularly you can also try out the best sellers: Brown Sugar Pearls Milk, Brown Sugar Pearls Oreo Milk, Brown Sugar Pearls Matcha Milk, Blueberry Dirtea

With all the milk tea stores spouting left and right, let me recommend one that you can check out and hopefully enjoy as much as I did when I went there. Let me share my short clips I video recorded for your reference. You can choose other variants of Milk Tea and even fruit tea's for your refreshment enjoyment especially this very hot summer season.

This store is located at the 2nd Floor, League One Southgate Mall (Former Alphaland) Magallanes, Makati. The main store is in  Development Bank of the Philippines Head Office, Makati Avenue, Makati. Opening this May at University Mall, Manila (Let's all watch out for that!)

TeaMi will be opening 7 branches more soon in BGC, Megamall, Robinsons Galleria, Ortigas, Makati and Manila.

Let's all enjoy our like in TeaMi with their Milk Tea!
