Then: yogurt craze. Now: MILK TEA CRAZE!
Am I too late to join the bandwagon? It has been a couple of months since I learned to love milk tea. It first started as a curious thought and tried the nearest to my workplace, Zentea. I usually order the XL milk tea with extra pearl. It has been my afternoon delight thrice or four times a week. Yes, I am that addicted! Twice, I tried GongCha in Glorietta although I didn’t buy again after those instances. I just got curious because a lot of people line up on the store.
My high school friend M sent me a message on a random night asking if I wanted to have Happy Lemon. Unfortunately, I was busy that night so I wasn’t able to meet up with her. The next day over lunch, my officemate N said she wanted to try Happy Lemon and asked if she wanted to come with them. So I thought to myself, ‘What’s this Happy Lemon everybody is talking about? I should try this and see what the hype is all about.’
And there I was, standing on the LONG queue of Happy Lemon in Power Plant. I was ecstatic and at the same time hopeful that it would not disappoint me. I had waited days just to get a taste of it.
The most popular concoction of Happy Lemon (as what most of my friends recommend) is the Rock Salt and Cheese series. I got a large cocoa with RSC (P100) and my J had a large Cocoa with Taro (P110) since he wanted to be on the safe side, I guess.
Look at that foamy creamy cheese on top. Sweet and salty pleasure. HEAVENLY! It is best consumed without a straw so you can lick the cheese on your upper lip after. That’s the ultimate experience!
For a start, our experience was truly enjoyable. We can’t wait come back. Maybe I’ll have a Rock Salt and Cheese drink again. Haha!
Have you tried Happy Lemon? What are your favorite drinks?
