They have a variety of sweet milk teas and two of their bestsellers are T3 Special Milk Tea and Oreo Cream Milk Tea.

Another one that topped our list, people had been raving about Macao Imperial Tea with their cheesecake milk tea drinks. Their soft, chewy boba pearls are really good and the tea in their milk tea is legit. The cheesecake milk tea is a favorite for its really unique and distinct flavor it gives off. You have to wait in the line, though for a lot of Davaoenos had been going to this shop. So if you’re a fan of cheese, then it should be on your must-try list.

One of the always crowded milk tea shop because everyone’s lining up here and for good reason as well. They serve real milk tea, like legit tea, not the powdered ones. Cha Time is one of the reputed milk tea chains all over the world for it’s also freshly brewed tea on their milk tea plus it’s one of the pioneering milk tea brands from Taiwan. One of their bestsellers is Pearl Milk Tea and my personal favorite is their cold flavored tea because we’re a true tea lover, not just milk tea lover. Try it!

The milktea shop indeed speaks for its name. Serenitea.

The place itself is really relaxing with a milktea in your hand plus some scrumptious snacks to pair it with. Yes, they serve healthy snacks like peppercorn, hash brown, chicken chops, and more. But let’s talk about their tea for they have a teapresso which their tea is freshly brewed! yes! This is what’s unique in this milk tea shop. Their bestsellers are the Okinawa and Hokkaido milk tea plus some sinkers add into it like pearls and coffee jelly. Their milk tea is just spectacular no wonder it’s always packed.

One of the most overlooked milk tea shops in Davao City but still delivers, Fiftea Milk Tea Shop have solid followers over the years not only due to some of their milk tea that is super affordable but also, they housed some of the unique and delicious milk tea flavors namely the Ice Cream series and Milk Tea coconut mixes. No flashy cups and branding but the taste is the real deal. You shouldn’t underestimate this milk tea for this had been operating for years in Davao City and well, we all love it, too.

This milktea shop from Taiwan had been growing its popularity rapidly all over the world that now, they already have a branch in Davao City. Tiger Sugar serves specialized brewed milk tea, variants of brown sugar milk teas with fresh and hot tapioca pearls. The hype is real for the flavors of their milk tea are top-notch and unique to other milk teas you’ve tasted so far. If you think you’re not a fan of sugar and don’t like sweets that much, well you’ll be surprised that their milktea isn’t that sweet at all but just perfectly balanced on its taste. The actual taste is delicious, you’d definitely keep coming back. And oh, we recommend their Tiger Sugar Brown Sugar Boba Milk.

Happy Lemon

The Happy Place For Cool Beverage And Tea Lovers

(picture reference: here)


Another personal favorite and I might be a little biased, one of the earlier milk tea shops that opened in Davao City that stuck to Davaoenos because they are that good! True to its name, a cup of Happy Lemon really makes you happy.  Happy Lemon is still one of the sought-out milktea shops until today. They have a wide variant of milk tea flavors and each one is a surprise of taste. Their bestsellers are the rock salt and cheese series which are all-soo good. I recommend the jasmine (which is heaven for me!), green tea, matcha, oolong, coffee flavor topped with rock salt and cheese. If you’ve tasted one of their milk teas and made it your favorite, you might be stuck on that flavor for a while. Trust me.

Want some freshly-made pearls in your milktea? Then LOVELAND will give that to you. One of the best and tastiest milk tea that opened in Davao City, LOVELAND had gained a huge cult following the moment they opened their store…and it’s not just because of the hype but it’s because their milktea is no joke. It really gives off a new taste that would definitely make you think of all the milk tea you’ve tried so far…because it’s that delicious! The container itself is already unique to the eyes contrary to the usual milk teacup and moreover what’s in it. They said that they use premium whole tea from the mountains of Tainan, Taiwan, which gives off a distinct smell and unique taste. Isn’t that awesome?

My favorite? the classic green milk tea with boba. I’d encourage you though to try every one of them. It’s all delish.
