Moonleaf’s flagship branch is the one along Maginhawa St. of Teacher’s Village.  Whether it’s the stall or the tea shop, we contantly see it packed and hear nothing but raves about it.  We were able to try the branch along Esteban Abada so here’s our take on what’s been refreshing the students of the Diliman area lately.

Of the different milk tea places we’ve tried, Moonleaf has one of the best pearls.  They’re big and really chewy so if you’re a fan of gummy candies, you’ll love them!  Just like how we discovered Happy Lemon’s Cocoa with Rock Salt and Cheese, we just walked up to the counter and asked for their best-seller.  We got the Wintermelon Milk Tea with Pearls.  It’s easy to understand why it’s a favorite. It’s light and a bit sweet.  We would have appreciated being able to adjust the sweetness but we weren’t asked for a preference.  Overall, their best-seller’s a winner.

We also tried the Pudding Milk Tea with Pearls. It’s like milk tea with leche flan or custard joining in on the fun!  This was less sweet than the Wintermelon one so you get to taste the tea more, which is great.

For just Php70, you already get a big glass.  It’s heavy enough to be a snack.  And we are seriously getting addicted to trying out all these milk teas.

    Thanks for the info… This is the only tea shop I haven’t tried on my list… Happy Lemon, Serenitea, Chatime and Gong cha are accessible to me. How about a feature about Chatime or Gong cha? :)

      Chatime is actually a personal favorite. I loved it so much I kept on forgetting to take pictures because I usually drink right away! But Chatime and Gong Cha features are both coming up soon! Have you tried Cha Dao? That’s one of the milk tea places left on our list. :)
