Yi Fang’s Refreshing Fruit and Milk Tea in BGC

YiFang’s Refreshing Fruit and Milk Tea in BGC

When we had the opportunity to find ourselves "lost" in BGC on a Saturday night, we decided to follow the craze in Yi Fang - a slightly hidden fruit and milk tea outlet tucked within the side streets of High Street. You may somehow call it as a hole-in-the-wall, but since it's already very popular, I'm not sure whether the label will be appropriate.

Follow the (long) line to locate Yi Fang
It took us a while to find the place, but the long lines made it easier to locate the corner where Yi Fang stands. In exchange for an easier search (i.e. via the queue) , we needed to endure long waiting time as well which exacerbated our thirst for a refreshing drink.

As we waited, we couldn’t help but just let loose. That’s when we thought of imitating a “Humans of Taguig” photography, and aptly called it “Tambays of Taguig”. I finally understood how boredom leads to lunacy.

Our madness ended after about 25 minutes of waiting, and we finally got hold of YiFang fruit tea and milk tea. Now, let’s dissect the taste.

Passion Fruit Tea of Yi Fang in Taguig

The Passion Fruit Tea (P125 - large) had a fruity refreshing zest. With the balanced mix of sweetness, fruitiness and subtle sourness, it surely electrified my palate. There are also poppy seeds that gave crunchy experience for this drink.

The Wintermelon Lemonade (P110, second from the right) was somehow similar to the Passion Fruit Tea but only with a slightly sweeter overall and “smoother” unified taste. Between the two, I would go for this one.

The Pineapple Green Tea (P120, rightmost of the photo above) was the loveliest among the three fruit teas we had. It had the right mix of a natural sweetness of the fruit. The pineapple chunks were also refined. It was not the usual pineapple bits that scratches the buds. In fact, it was pulpy and suave. I highly recommend this! 

Brown Sugar Pearl of Yi Fang in BGC

The Brown Sugar Pearl (P160 - large) was worth the wait with its smooth, ticklish, mini pearls. It was a mouthful of experience and massaged my palate each time the pearls glided in my mouth. Milk tea enthusiasts will be able to appreciate the uniqueness of the experience. The only setback on this is that it was kinda pricey for a milk tea.

Given that I’m a milk/fruit tea generalist, I was able to appreciate but couldn’t differentiate Yi Fang with other fruit or milk tea brands. Regarding the wait time, I would say that it was fun and worth it (for a first-timer), though I may opt for other stores with less queue for the convenience.

For the drinks, I highly suggest the Pineapple Green Tea and the Brown Sugar Milk Tea. If you haven't tried Yi Fang, well, you should.
