4 Top Reasons Why We Love Macao Imperial Tea [Review]


    Macao Imperial Tea is our favorite at home


    I’ve always been honest that I’m not really a fan of milk tea. I’d always choose to have coffee over milk tea. But if there’s one milk tea brand that I like to drink, it’s Macao Imperial Tea. It’s a favorite at our house that’s why I came to eventually love it, too.

    Our favorite milk tea flavor is the cheesecake and pearl milk tea because the combination of the slightly bitter tea, salty cream cheese, and creamy milk is a delightful explosion of flavors on the palate. I used to just take a few sips from Khris’ cup but eventually, I began to order a separate cup of Macao Imperial Tea for myself.

    The last time we ordered, I tried the halo-halo flavored cheesecake milk tea because I was craving, well, halo-halo.

    More reasons why we like Macao Imperial Tea


    Aside from the delicious taste of Macao Imperial Tea drinks, we also love it at home because of the following reasons:

    1. It’s affordable


    The milk tea blends are fairly affordable at least at par with the prices of other similar popular drinks in the market today. A large drink at Macao Imperial Tea, on average, is around P175.

    2. It’s easy to order


    If you are craving Macao Imperial Tea, you won’t have to fret because it’s really easy to order. Because of the number of outlets of Macao Imperial Tea, chances are, there is one that is near you. Before the pandemic, we would just ask my brother-in-law to buy Macao Imperial Tea Cheesecake and Pearl Milk Tea at Ayala Fairview Terraces.

    However, because of the quarantine restrictions, we would just order Macau Imperial Tea via GrabFood.

    3. There are many flavors to choose from


    While the all-time favorite Macao Imperial Tea flavor at home is the Cheesecake and Pearl Milk Tea, it’s also great to know that there are other flavors that are available. I’ve tried the Cheesecake Purple Taro and it also tasted fine. Lately, I saw the Cheesecake Halo-Halo Milk Tea in the choices. While I think it’s a limited-edition flavor, I like that it was able to satisfy my craving for halo-halo.

    4. Macao Imperial Tea also offers coffee blends


    For those who are not keen on trying milk tea and would only strictly consume coffee, then it’s alright. You won’t be left out at Macao Imperial Tea because there are hot and cold coffee options available for you.

    Epilogue


    Macao Imperial Tea is one of the most widely known milk tea brands all over the country. It’s also our favorite milk tea at home and we would have it delivered at home whenever we wanted something cool to drink.

    While I do admit that I’m not too much of a milk tea fan, I find the flavors offered by Macao Imperial Tea to be delightful. I’d have to try its coffee selections though the next time that we order.
