A-Gantea Tea Cafe Opens in Greenbelt

If you frequent the Greenbelt 2 & 3 area in Makati, you’d actually observe that there’s hardly any milk tea place around. And with the number of milk tea stores that have mushroomed in Metro Manila, this should be a surprise! Lo, and behold, a milk tea ad endorsing “A-Gantea” recently sprouted we just had to try it.

It turned out to be from the same owners of the longstanding Qoola yogurt place which now shares a part of its space with A-Gantea. A brand hailing from Taiwan, they have a lot of stores in Malaysia. With the yogurt craze cooling down, this is good move on the part of Qoola to refocus according to trend.

Their ordering counter is immediately on your right upon entry but the dining area is on the 2nd floor. The store is also blogger-friendly with free Wi-Fi access.

The Milk Tea

A-Gantea Tea Café‘s menu offered five main concoctions such as the QQ Milk Tea, Taro Milk Tea, Bubble Milk Tea, Pear Fruit Tea, and Hawaiian Fruit Tea.

As much as I want to order my all-time favorite Taro milk tea variant or the more adventurous options of Pear Fruit Tea and Hawaiian Fruit Tea, I decided to try the traditional Bubble Milk Tea since this is my first time to try the brand.

So, Bubble Milk Tea it is. At P85, I had a Black Pearl add-on for P15 since it comes with the default white pearl. The total bill was flat P100.

They also had the ‘vibrator’ thing to call your attention when your order is ready; it’s getting quite common in restaurants nowadays.

The Verdict

The Bubble Milk Tea was good and the pearl / tapioca / ‘sago‘ were also consistently chewy. Being a tapioca lover, I had the add-on. But I wouldn’t recommend you have one since they were already generous with the pearls. I ended up with almost half of the large serving filled with sago. 🙂

Their medium size is P75, by the way.

I intend to be more adventurous in my next visit. Target points are the A-Gan Green Tea and Taiwan Alpine Tea which they said are from Taiwan’s Ali Mountains at 1200m altitude.

Moreover, the Hawaiian Fruit Tea which mixes sour and sweet, the Pear Fruit tea made with sweet and mellow alpine tea base, and the Milk-lid Green Tea which is basically alpine tea with special creamy milk-lid, are all in the pipeline.
