What Is Tiger Milk Tea and Where Can You Find It in Manila?



Just recently, Taiwan made the world buzz with their newest drink craze: Tiger Milk Tea.

But what is tiger milk tea? And what’s in it?

From what we learned, compared with the other milk teas in the market, tiger milk tea stands out due to its intense flavors thanks to the ample amount of brown sugar syrup mixed with fresh, thick milk cream.

Every sip you take is rich, sweet, and loaded with creamy, caramel-y goodness, which could take your milk tea addiction into a whole other decadent level.

The brown sugar tapioca pearls are also said to be different—served slightly warm to keep them soft and chewy.
