Milksha — dubbed as Taiwan's “best milk tea” brand — is now available in the Philippines through select Chowking branches.
Also known by the brand name Milkshop in Taiwan, Milksha is one of the world's best milk tea brands. It was voted as the “No.1 Milk Tea Brand” by university students in Taiwan and recognized as “The Best Reviewed” milk tea brand by Daily View, a known online media platform in Taiwan.
Founded by Peter Huang, Milksha is driven by its mission to offer “Fresh, Natural, and Handmade Beverages.” It achieves this by using natural and fresh ingredients, without any preservatives or chemical additives. Milksha prides itself in using fresh, high quality milk as a base for its beverages.
From its founding in Tainan City in Taiwan in 2008, this milk tea brand has continued to grow and establish its presence locally and overseas. Milksha now has over 250 outlets, in Taiwan, Hongkong, Melbourne, Vancouver, Singapore, and most recently, Manila.
Chowking is offering five flavors of Milksha drinks, including Honey Pearl Black Tea Latte, Black Tea Latte with Pudding, Valrhona Cocoa Milk, Signature Taro Milk, and Wintermelon Lemon.
The honey pearls are Milksha's signature toppers. Milksha's pearls are soaked in honey for a natural burst of honeyed sweetness in every chew. Delivered fresh from Taiwan, these pearls are free from preservatives. They are prepared daily to ensure each pearl is translucent and bouncy.
Like the honey pearls, the black tea used in creating Milksha's Honey Pearl Black Tea Latte are always freshly prepared on-site. This premium black tea blend, which has an invigorating floral aroma, is finished off with the smoothness of fresh milk. Meanwhile, Milksha Black Tea Latte can be topped off with its very own pudding, which is also fused with fresh milk.
For its indulgent Valrhona Cocoa Milk, Milksha uses Valrhona cocoa from France. Valrhona is a known high-grade luxury chocolate brand established by French pastry chef Albéric Guironnet. Far from a regular chocolate drink, Valrhona Cocoa Milk delivers a strong cocoa taste, yet perfectly balanced with sweet and creamy milk.
Signature Taro Milk is one of Milksha's top sellers in Taiwan and for a good reason. It uses high quality taro from selected regions in Taiwan. With each sip, customers will taste the earthy all-natural flavor of taro blended with rich and creamy milk.
Finally, Milksha's Wintermelon Lemon boasts of the right blend of sweet and sour. It is made with sweet, fruity wintermelon syrup brewed from fresh wintermelons and is mixed with the tangy, citrusy flavor of Taiwanese lemon juice.
Milksha is now exclusively available — over the counter and for delivery — in select Chowking branches namely, Betterliving in Paranaque; SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City; Unciano Center and Marcos Highway in Antipolo City; Fairview Regalado and Roces in Quezon City; BGC Bonifacio Stop Over and Petron C5 Diego Silang in Taguig City. It will soon come to more Chowking stores in Metro Manila.
