This happens to be our new craving at the office. Every lunchtime, my unit always plans to go to SM Megamall to buy Gong Cha Milk Tea, but unfortunately, plans remain as ‘plans’ for all of us. We have lazy butts. It’s a good thing my family is not that lazy. As you can tell by the pictures below, we had a happy time purchasing Gong Cha.

As you can see, here is my dad happily waiting for his order and yes, that’s me at the counter with my mom busily ordering for everyone else!


If this is your first time to buy tea from Gong Cha, try to choose from the house specials. Their specialties are the Gong Cha Milk Green Tea, the Gong Cha Alisan Tea and the Gong Cha Winter Melon Tea.

For those of you who have tried the Green Tea Rock Salt and Cheese of Happy Lemon, this and the Gong Cha Green Tea has a lot of similarities. For you to enjoy the Gong Cha specialty drinks, you have to drink it from the glass and not use a straw. Aww, this won’t work as a drink while driving. Although, you can also mix it already, but for me, when you do this, you take away the sensation that you get from the different textures of each layer.


Look at the different drinks we ordered. I must say that they have other good drinks, too. We also ordered the classic Milk Tea with Pearl Jelly.

If it’s your first time to try Gong Cha, order one of the house specials. Let us know what you think.

*Gong Cha was first launched in Taiwan last 2006. It has around 170 branches in certain Asian countries.
