Trying out The Alley Milk Tea at SM MOA

So I tried The Alley Milk Tea first at our second Hong Kong trip a couple of months ago. I really loved their classic milk tea but I was not expecting to find this milk tea here in Manila. Anyways I tried their classic once more just to compare if there's any difference. Pichi on the other hand is still on the search for his drink.

The Alley is located in the SM MOA Main mall, ground floor, near Mango.

You see, he likes the Brown Sugar Milk Tea thing but he has not found a size small enough to finish by himself. So here's our verdict:

He got the brown Sugar with deerioca milk which costs 120 Pesos for a usual medium cup. The taste is not straight brown sugar though unlike other stores. Its got a more of a salted caramel aftertaste too. Just the right sweetness too. And if you love pearls I noticed that they put in quite a lot.

As for The Alley Milk Tea that I got it pretty much is the same as the one I had in HK, except for some reason, the milk they use in Hong Kong is tastier and creamier than the one here. Also, the tea here is a lot nicer than the other shops we have, as they actually brew things and not use powders to flavor their drink.

All in all definitely more tasty in my opinion.

If you are in need of variety they also have Cocoa Brown Sugar and Matcha Brown Sugar available. And I hear that their Royal Milk Tea has a very flowery scent to it.

There's also a place to sit and wait while your tea is brewing. Its really nice and a comfy place to sit with friends or family while sipping your milk teas.

I saw once though that the lines can be long here. That's the only downside I can see to this place. And if you're into large milk teas then I don't think you'll be happy as they only have one size. For me though, this one size is perfect as I am trying to curb my milk tea addiction. An yes, it is an addiction and I'll be talking more about that later in this blog.
