what I've been hoarding lately...

Ever on the look out for cold milk tea, I was happy to find out from karabau that you could get a perfectly good bottle of milk tea from the 7-11 at the corner. It's called Mine Shine and it's the best cold milk tea I've had since Wan Chai stopped serving theirs. It's no poor substitute either.

Mine Shine seems to have gotten the perfect milk tea mix right. The milk isn't too sweet as to overpower the subtle black tea flavor.

On their nice, classy, blue bottle, they've got the label, "Finest Quality Milk Tea." I'm inclined to believe it.

P36 bucks at 711. Gilmore's 711 carries it. And so does the Mini Stop near Salcedo Park.

Actually, Mini Stop yung sa tabi ng Salcedo Coffee Bean :). Mas malaki yung chances na meron sa mga 7-Eleven though. Medyo madalas lang maubusan yung sa Paseo coz Pia and I hoard there. Mwahahaha!

Sorry, sorry, Mini Stop pala.

Kayo na mag hoard sa Makati, I can do the hoarding in QC. Tapos iinom at iinom tayo ng Mine Shine. Mwahaha....

karabau said...

Ack! Better to buy at 7-eleven coz it's P7 more expensive at Mini Stop.

Milk tea is fantastic. To enjoy fully one must forget that 16oz of the stuff packs over 300 calories ... ! =)

Miguel said...

Waaah buti na lang bumalik ako sa blog na to, i've been looking for milk tea RTD for the longest time since i tried the best-selling milk tea from MUJI (yoko ng local versions, iba ang lasa)...Ang mahal ng Asahi Milk tea, around Php255 for a 1.5L(?), sobrang dalang pa magkaron (hate you Makati Supermart Alabang for not stocking! Puro Aloe Vera juie!)...meron naman palang convenience store version...heading out to the corner 711 now na...the Ortigas stores better have!

Yey nakahanap nako ng Mineshine...Nagkaroon sa 7/11 Emerald, pero mukhang last bottle na ata yung nabili ko yesterday. Stock up more please!

(but it has 300plus calories? really? Crap, I guess I won't hoard then, beach season pa naman)
