Share Tea challenge resurrected: Matcha rock salt cheese with a hint of lime

Share Tea Matcha Rock Salt Cheese with a Hint of Lime

Share Tea’s rock salt cheese series just got updated with a drink that highlights the fine Japanese green tea known as matcha. The addition of lime is unexpected in the default matcha rock salt cheese with a hint of lime, but Share Tea will make you a less complicated matcha rock salt cheese if you find the lime element rather funky. I’m torn sometimes — with or without the citrusy undertone, the velvety smoothness of the drink has lovely depth and finishes like lush green tea ice cream.

Share Tea challenge resurrected: Hazelnut milk tea with coffee jelly

Hazelnut Milk Tea with Coffee Jelly

It was great timing to go back to Share Tea. The hazelnut milk tea with coffee jelly was beaming. I actually got 2 drinks — I gravely needed a dose green tea, but I couldn’t say no to the new one.  The excitement didn’t wane. All the goodness of tea and coffee in this drink.

Anchored with hazelnut and luscious milk flavors, the sharpness of tea charmingly fused with the bitter characteristic of coffee in the chewy jelly. It’s my new favorite drink.

Happy Lemon and Koori

Happy Lemon

The phenomenal success of Happy Lemon is not waning just yet. It was actually the long queue at the mall that got me attracted. Palibhasa promdi, nakiuso at nakiusyoso, hahah, both. In truth, I needed to degrease. Like a reflex, among the plethora of tea blends, mousse spins, lemon mixes, etc., I knew exactly what to get. So it was matcha with adzuki beans. The creamy adzuki gave the very Japanese thick green tea a dainty counterbalance.

A huge colorful kiosk instead of an enclosed space, I guess, is a good strategy to catch attention to one good line of products.

Koori Yogurt Bar and Mochi

In contrast to Happy Lemon’s easily noticed, whimsical kiosk, Koori’s minimalist stand is almost non-visible. The first time I checked it out some months ago, I had to bend over to see what it’s all about. This time around, a banner is displayed.

Koori Azuki-Taro Yogurt Bar

Can’t have enough of azuki, I went for akuzi-taro. The flavors were kinda faint, bringing out the unmistakable sourish taste of yogurt. The lovely texture was enjoyable however. Failed to sample a mochi. The flavors are interesting — azuki- matcha, strawberry cheesecake, mango, midnight cookie, green tea, etc..

The Koori kiosk in  Lucky Chinatown Mall is the first in the entire metro, also an original Filipino brand, according to the girls. I was asked if I photograph everything that I eat. LOL. I asked them to pose for me:)
