Honestly speaking, I'm getting tired of ALL the milk teas I've been having. They all now almost taste the same. I can't even distinguish the difference between them now that I am very used to drinking milk tea. I'm thinking that the milk tea craze has finally reached the top of the bell curve. I know a bunch of people who aren't craving for milk tea anymore but hearing a lot of good buzz from others regarding Saint's Alp which serves different kinds of tea, I decided to try it again after 5 months since my first visit in this same branch. Finally! A chance to try it again to see if they have improved.

Elevators aren't working yet as of now. Saint's Alp is located at the 2nd floor of Regis center and it's only a few flight of stairs away so an elevator isn't necessary. Besides, it's always good to build that appetite. It was around lunch time when we came and the place was packed. There were businessmen, students, random people (like us) and some families.
Since I was tired of milk teas already, I decided not to try milk tea this time because they all taste the same to me now. You know what I found out? This is indeed a "Tea" house. They have tea based slush called Sorbies, tea based milk shakes, tea based yogurts, tea based eggs and other tea stuff. We've been trained to look at tea houses like this, as a place for milk tea when in fact, the other tea drinks were also awesome! Some "more mature" customers that time even ordered hot tea.. Yes, the one we get from restaurants for free. Hot teas must be good here since they pay for it here rather than get it free in other restaurants.
Dishes we've tried:
|Taiwanese Chicken Chop | Php 195.00|
|Taiwanese Minced Pork | Php 195.00|
For the drinks:
|Matcha Aulait w/ Matcha Agar | Php 115.00|
summer days. A perfect way to cool off and to compliment the chicken chop meal!
|Double Mango Agar (Large) | Php 135.00|
|Green Tea White Moustache | Php 100.00|
|Double Strawberry Agar | To be available soon!|
The taste buds of Filipinos are used to very sweet taste and that might be the reason why I expected a sweet milk tea when I first visited. As per research, Agar drinks have a very huge following, even here in the Philippines. As a hardcore "tea house" where almost all kinds of food and drinks are with something with "tea", I guess that explains why this is called Saint's Alp teahouse and tea houses is not equivalent to those just selling milk teas. This one sells a variety of tea-based drinks and food!
Looks like Saint's Alp did improve a lot from my first visit! My next visit would be to try the other drinks and maybe some breakfast meals from the menu. They sound appetizing.
