Last week, we asked Malaysian influencers which bubble milk tea shops serve the best cups of boba they've ever tasted. And as they cast their votes, we also got to peek at their orders, which we've now added to our own bubble tea must-tries. Despite their great recommendations, the milk tea quest is far from over. This time, we got our Philippine Clozetters to spill the tea — pun intended — on their top bubble tea picks.
P.S. We even got the scoop on some of their second-best favourites.
"I was not really a fan of milk teas before but I was converted when I tried the one with cream cheese from Royce," spills Star Clozetter Jewel Agustin. "It’s handcrafted so you can really taste the tea, unlike the others. But it’s too expensive so I drink Happy Lemon Creamy Baby when I'm on a budget."
"I've loved boba milk tea since I was 13 years old," confessed Star Clozetter Me-An Clemente. "My top one is CoCo Milk Tea because for a PHP 100 (~USD2) I get creamy milk tea with the right hint of sweetness and I don't have to pay additional for sinkers. Plus, when I get their White Pearls Milk Tea (packed with small tapioca pearls or sago), I also get a nice ratio of milk tea and pearls in each sip. Overall, great value for money."
Me-An also talked about her top two, saying, "My second fave is Onezo. I just love their flavoured pearls. They make the experience of drinking milk tea better because two elements bring a burst of varying flavours in one sip."
