15 Best Thai Milk Tea Places in Manila That You Will Fall Head Over Heels in Love With


Love at first sip.

There’s just something so special about Thai milk tea that captured our hearts. As we take our first sip, we taste that bitter note that clings to that sweet and creamy flavor of the concoction of brewed black tea, mixed with spices, condensed milk and orange blossom water. Its distinct orange color makes us so curious to try it – and try and try, we’ll never tire of it.

Update: Check out our new Buy 1 Get 1 deals this week!
