Cha Tuk Chak's Thai Tea and Dessert Cafe

Cha Tuk Chak's Thai Tea and Dessert Cafe

After dining in Marugame Udon (which I really urge you to give a try), we decided to take a stroll in Central Square of Bonifacio High Street. That's when we found out that there was an ongoing event, a bazaar to be specific -- and a food bazaar to be more specific.

Brewing process of Cha Tuk Chak Thai Tea

Since we already had our lunch, we were just eyeing out for a dessert or something to drink. We thought we have failed the mission, since we weren't seeing anything interesting to drink or eat for dessert. However, that was until we caught a glance of Cha Tuk Chak. After which, we looked at each other's eyes, and right then, we knew that we all agreed. Perfect!

Not-so-friendly price
We were slightly taken aback upon laying sight on the prices of the thai tea. We didn't expect that they would reach those figures. We were almost discouraged to try because of this. However, the universe was with us during that time. Apparently, GCASH was having a promo wherein all we need to do was to register, and we'll be getting P50 off. Without hesitation, we grabbed the opportunity.

The Cha Yen (P120) captures the authentic boldness of a thai tea -- this is the equivalent of a classic Thai Milk Tea

Five Variants of Thai Tea

Most of my friends ordered the Cha Yen (P120), which is the classic equivalent. The taste was gold -- marked with boldness and smoothness, and although I haven't been to Thailand, I can sense that the taste was "authentic".

Tip: If you find the taste too strong. You can wait for a bit for the ice to melt. My friend told me that you usually let the ice melt first to balance out the potent taste, but of course, enjoy it as you please.

Cha Khiao of Cha Tuk Chak Thai Tea

I personally had the Cha Kiao (P120) which was a combination of thai tea and green tea (i.e. Jasmine). It got this flowery taste matched with the familiar boldness of taste of the Thai tea. In my opinion, I liked my drink better.

Unfortunately, Cha Tuk Chak is no longer available in BGC as of this writing, since the bazaar only took three (3) days. You may however catch Cha Tuk Chak in Kapitolyo. Anyway, do let me know what you think of this drink!
