Bring back the hype for milk tea with these stores open for delivery


Months before quarantine, you may have noticed a resurgence of milk tea shops around Metro Manila. People were raving about new unique flavors brought by both local and international brands. Restaurants started including milk tea in their beverages menu—and we were all for it—well, until quarantine put all that on hold. However, thanks to the digital landscape, we can resume this milk tea craze as more stores are reopening for pickup and delivery. For your daily dose of sugar, here’s where you can have milk tea delivered.


Din Tai Fung

The popular Taiwanese restaurant also has its signature milk tea to pair with your meals. Order their brown sugar milk tea for takeout or delivery through GrabFood, Lalamove, or Foodpanda.


The Mess Hall

The Moment Group’s own version of a cafeteria, The Mess Hall, offers dishes from their other restaurants like Ooma, Manam and 8Cuts. On top of that, they’ve also got some creamy black milk tea to finish the meal. Order via GrabFood, Lalamove or Foodpanda.



Taiwan’s I’Milky, known for its use of fresh milk and natural sweeteners, has its bestsellers—brown sugar milk tea, taro milk, Thai with brown sugar pearl and more—up for delivery through Foodpanda and GrabFood.



Vegans and lactose intolerants can turn to FRNK for their milk tea fix as the store is complete with non-dairy milk tea options. The store has a wide selection of unique flavors (ones you can’t find anywhere else) like Maccha Chizu and Blue Lava Miruku. Order via GrabFood or contact them on Viber at 0945-7391240.


The Alley


Global milk tea franchise The Alley is delivering its matcha and cocoa brown sugar milk tea beverages to our homes. We recommend their trio milk tea infused with tapioca, coconut jelly and konjac jelly. Order through GrabFood, Lalafood and Foodpanda.



If you can’t decide between ice cream or milk tea, just go for La Tearia’s shaved milk tea. It’s got the consistency of ice cream but all the elements of milk tea—tapioca pearls, milk and your choice of toppings. They deliver through Foodpanda.


Tuan Tuan

For something that’s a little less creamy and a bit more caffeinated, try out Tuan Tuan’s Hong Kong milk tea (or nai cha). You can order it hot as well. Order through GrabFood.


Tiger Sugar

When Tiger Sugar first opened in the country, it became the talk of the town. So we’d be remiss  not to include this crowd favorite in this list. Order their brown sugar boba milk tea with Milo, cream mousse or other toppings through Lalafood, Grabfood, and Lalamove.
