One Afternoon At Happy T


Due to a friend's recommendation and my obsession for newly opened food places, we decided to spend our afternoon at Happy T. It's located in San Jose, right in front of Jollibee. The place was pretty small. It only had about three tables that were positioned close together. My friends and I occupied most of the space. We weren't complaining though, but we did pity the people who couldn't sit anymore due to the limited number of seats.

They sell a variety of snacks there, but their main attraction is, as expected, tea. Ever since I discovered milk tea during the summer, I have grown really fond of it. Zamboanga lacks variety when it comes to it, so I was happy to learn that we finally have access to another brand. I've been daydreaming about Happy Lemon's cocoa milk tea, so I decided to order Happy T's version of it.

Notice the interesting print on the cup. You're supposed to punch a hole in
the one that applies to you.

They only offer one size for all drinks. This one cost me 70 pesos. It's a bit on the pricey side, but I think it's okay considering the drink's size. I also liked the taste. The taste of the tea wasn't too much - just how I like it. It tasted more of chocolate than tea, if you're wondering. I think it's still something a non-tea lover would enjoy. Along with my drink, I ordered a poto pao. The woman at the counter said it was their best seller, so I decided to give it a try. It's topped with salted egg and it had meat in the center. I'm not sure if I enjoyed it because it was tasty or I was just really hungry that time.


I'm definitely going back though. I need to try their other flavors. First, I'll have to save up since visiting this place during a school day had a bad effect on my allowance. I think I overspent today. It was worth the visit though, so I'll think of today as a treat to myself. Another reason why I want to go back is this little card you get from them. You can collect stamps every time you buy a drink. After collecting 10, you'll get a free drink. Cool, right?


They also have this cork board where you can leave little notes. Mico

  7. Here, it would cost us more than a hundred for milk tea. :)) In Taiwan, it's 65NT, but if you convert to pesos, it's still going to be more than 70 pesos. :))
