Last Saturday I was invited at Super Duck – it’s a tea store in Ortigas, they have morethan 100 tea variations to choose from and offer some really good snacks. Luckily super duck made my tea experience very wonderful. I am not very good at teas but I have my personal expectations I used in judging these drinks. We have tasted more or less 20 of its tea flavors, it was a lot so I am asking your pardon if I forgot some but I can surely mention my favorites.
Peach Green Tea with Perilla Seeds M Php 100.00 / L Php 120.00
Mixed Fruits Green Teas with slices of Apple, Orange and Passion fruits
Roselle Plum Tea M Php 80.00 / L Php 85.00
Among those little slices of shrooms in the bucket, this black mushroom which I forgot the exact name stands out being the juicier and tastier.
Wenshan Clear Tea - M Php 60.00 / L Php 70.00
According to Steve and Dennis (the owners of Super Duck) this is one of the least ordered teas, which is very ironic because we all liked it. The smell and the aroma is in perfect unison, very comforting and relaxing. The French Rose Milk Latte always reminds me of spa goodness.
French Rose Milk Latte - M Php 90.00 / L Php 100.00 I only have two words to describe this tea its CALMNESS and SOPHISTICATION <3
Chocolate Nai Kai with Cheez salt- Php 100.00 - 1st of two tea flavors that they mentioned to beat all the best in all the tea stores in the Philippines. Yabang! pero bet naman kasi.
Wentermelon Nai Kai with Cheez Salt- Php 100.00 (I love this over the Choco Nai Kai , though both are something worth licking the cup after ;))
TIPS in tasting tea: According to the two gentleman who sent themselves in Taiwan to gain earnest knowledge in tea; the fine tea, which was prepared finely, with the proper selection of sugar, water, and storage time should not taste bitter. Bitter taste in tea is caused by over stocked teas and improper brewing.
Buyers has this three steps to follow for your ultimate tea experience
1. Select the size.
2. Decide for your desired sweetness. 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%, 150%(very sweet)
3. Ice level (chilled - hot)
4. Choose your sinkers.
Budget per person is 150-200 for full board snacks :). So if your asking where in Ortigas you could go for good tea with competitive price and wide and modern variation? You'd surely know my answer by now. :)
