7 Milk Tea Shops Still Open For Delivery In Metro Manila
Need something to cool you down amid the sweltering summer heat? While we continue to practice social distancing holed up in our homes, a few milk tea stores in Manila remain open for pickup and delivery, ensuring citizens in the metro a brief yet delightful fix to their cabin fever.
But before you go ordering online, make sure to set aside a tip for your delivery guy. They're also working hard to keep themselves and their family afloat during these trying times and a little extra can go a long way.
Now that you've got that in mind, below are seven milk tea stores still partially open for business.
Sharetea will be continuing its operations through take-out and delivery in three select branches from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Delivery can be made via Foodpanda, Grab Food, and Lala Food.
Take note of their open branches below.
2. Gong Cha
A total of 18 Gong Cha stores have also stayed open for delivery through GrabFood and Foodpanda. Check out the list below to determine which apps they’re available in.
3. Tiger Sugar
In a bid to aid in the livelihood of their dairy farmer’s amid the COVID-19 crisis, Tiger Sugar has re-opened two of their branches in Del Monte and BGC. You can still get your brown sugar fix via take out or delivery through Lala Food. Take note though, that online delivery via Lala Food will only be available to you if you’re located within 6 kilometers of the said stores.
4. Tokyo Bubble Tea
Tokyo Bubble Tea’s Banawe, BGC, and Greenhills stores remain open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. for pickup or GrabFood delivery. Take note of each store’s contact, below.
5. Happy Lemon
As per a recent article on Business World, Happy Lemon’s Estancia branch in Ortigas remains open for business via Grab Food.
Infinitea will also be continuing operations in select stores strictly for pick-up and delivery, including that of Amaia Square in Quezon City from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To find out which other branches are open to receive orders, customers are urged to look through the individual Facebook page of the Infinitea branch near them.
While majority of Chatime’s Luzon branches have temporarily closed, their stores in Robinsons Galleria, Pioneer, and Cash and Carry Mall in Makati remain operational for pickup and delivery.
In the meantime, while most milk tea stores in the metro remain closed for the time being, some brands have taken to serving well-deserved refreshments to our frontliners instead.
"Sending our modern heroes our kind of love during these times! We hope we were able to provide some moments of Serenitea to you!" reads Serenitea's post.
Macao Imperial Tea helped out in a similar fashion, sending over drinks to military and medical personnel who have been tirelessy working throughout the crisis.
"To the Armed Forces of the Philippines, healthcare workers from the Philippine General Hospital, St. Lukes Medical Center, Makati Medical Center, San Juan De Dios Hospital and all front liners putting their lives on the line to help everyone get through this pandemic, thank you for your selfless service and sacrifice. You are our modern-day heroes in this fight against COVID-19. Stay safe. We salute you!" their post reads.

Here we are — with rough hands entwined, damned hearts at peace, broken souls resting with ease —savoring each passing moment before we part ways...hoping things will turn out to be okay. Here we are — standing still, keeping our earnest desire and ardent passion for each other at bay — hoping the Universe will finally grant us of the day that we no longer have to pretend... that things will no longer have to end.
Here we are — with crooked smiles, lingering touch that will last for a while -- gathering all the remaining courage to set each other free. Wishing for the day that our hearts will no longer have to worry. Here we are letting each other go. Even though we both know that the future is uncertain. Even though we're unsure if our paths will cross once again.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
