The Biggest Milk Tea Event In The Metro: Here’s What You Missed

Filipinos LOVE milk tea—and that sounds like an understatement. When you go out, you can find a milk tea stall on every street and mall in major Philippine cities. However, with so many milk tea brands available today, only a few truly stand out for their drinks. One of them is Milksha—the most well-loved milk tea brand in Taiwan.

Milksha entered the Philippines in November 2021 thanks to Chowking, the country’s #1 Chinese restaurant. It introduced four signature handcrafted drinks: Honey Pearl Black Tea Latte, Valrhona Cocoa Milk, Signature Taro Milk, and Wintermelon Lemon.

These drinks differ from other milk tea brands because they’re made with fresh, high-quality milk and natural premium ingredients. For instance, the Valrhona Cocoa Milk drink is made with high-grade luxury chocolate from France. Milksha’s Signature Taro Milk also uses high-quality taro from selected regions in Taiwan.

After seeing favorable demand for the brand in its first year in the Philippines, Chowking was happy to bring more Filipinos to the freshness and indulgence of Milksha milk tea at a pop-up event on Nov. 11-13 at SM Megamall.
