Taiwan's Finest Fiftea Now Brewing in the Phils.


Im a lemon greentea drinker, hence the name of my blog.

It has an acquired taste, something that you will grow accustomed to as the years go by.  I drink it because I’m told it’s good and it is beneficial to my health, and I believe it help keeps my weight in check. Here are the other reasons why it become my everyday staple. Green tea apparently help with wrinkles and the signs of aging. It has anti-viral and anti-bacterial agents.  Tea catechins are strong antibacterial and antiviral agents which make them effective for treating everything from influenza to cancer. In some studies green tea has been shown to inhibit the spread of many diseases. With so many tea house sprouted in the mall, now comes Fiftea, it does not only serve greenteas but also milkteas, blackteas and other variants to suit your discriminating taste.

 Fiftea is in town to serve what real milk tea is all about.

You know that the milk tea craze is on the rise with the numerous brands flooding the market with their version of milk tea. After tasting Fiftea’s creamy, fresh version, you won’t get confused anymore.  Fiftea’s milk tea flavor is quite distinctive, that’s because the leaves are all imported and the trained baristas prepare them the right way.  If you don’t believe it, ask your Taiwanese friends if they heard of Fiftea and what they think of it.  Fiftea is one of the first brands of milk tea in Taiwan and is already established as a brand of high quality.

The problem with the Philippine market, is that Filipinos are not too discriminating with quality as they are still getting into the milk tea lifestyle.  Sadly, they have difficulty even distinguishing brewed milk tea from a powdered source.  All milk tea tastes the same, they will say.  Just like wine and coffee, one develops the taste buds with time.  Connoisseurs will agree on what makes a quality milk tea brand different from the common or badly-brewed ones.

What makes Fiftea different from the other brands?

First, the trained baristas.  Unlike the other companies whose habit is to change their baristas every six months, Fiftea maintains the people they train.  They have to complete 2 years in the company before they are deployed to franchises.  In that way, every milk tea served maintains the high quality and consistency trademark of Fiftea.  The baristas are carefully handpicked and screened prior to employment.

Second, the brewing process.  No self-respecting high end milk tea brand uses powder, always
brewed.  Water is boiled separately before adding the tea leaves to get the freshest flavors and nutrients minus the bitterness from overboiled leaves.  The recipe is strictly followed, maintaining the golden ratio in every cup.  No additional sugar or water to adjust the quantity.  Even if the order is customized, quality and consistency is still maintained.  Containers for brewing and mixing are cleaned right away so as not to dilute the next cup of milk tea.

Third, the ingredients. The tea leaves are imported and sourced from a reputable grower of tea leaves.  So the final flavors sharp, distinct, and natural.  No chemicals are needed to heighten the flavors.

These are trade secrets that customers are not aware of, but should be wary of it the next time they order their milk tea.

So what are you waiting for? Go and try your first cup of fresh, creamy, natural and refreshing Fiftea milk tea and tell us the difference.
