I stopped by Sweetea’s at SM The Block last Tuesday for some high tea with blogger friends. Sweetea’s serves all natural brewed full leaf teas.
Sweetea’s interiors are as unique as the tea blends they serve. The seats are inspired by the rice terraces of Benguet. You can find your own corner and just get cozy.
What sets Sweetea’s apart from other tea places is the fact that you can create your own one-of-a-kind drink in three (3) simple steps:
- Choose your craft tea – I picked Maple Walnut (P130)
- Choose your style – I picked Icy and Milky (+P20)
- Add-ons – I had Banana Fruit Bombs (+P25)
My drink’s total cost? P175. You can customize as much as you want — make it Slushy, Juicy, and Zesty? Go! Want Flavors, Fruit Bombs, and Nata De Coco? Yes you can have them all.
Can’t decide? You can just have a Sweetea (P60) which you can make Milky (+P20) or Slushy (+P25). Or you can order Coffee (P95) which you can also make either Milky or Slushy.
Before you decide on a tea blend, you can take a whiff in the sample jars placed on the counter.
The Maple Walnut blend I picked is green-tea based.
Each order is manually brewed from full leaf blends.
Finally I got my Icy milky Maple Walnut tea with Banana Fruit Bombs.
I took of the lid because I wanted to see what my drink was like. I even caught a fruit bomb with my straw. Even the fruit bombs are all natural as they’re made of seaweed and real fruit juices and extracts.
I ordered some pastries to go with my tea — a Bacon and Cheese Scone (P110, above right) and a Buttermilk Scone (P90, above left). Both are really yummy! Slightly sweet and slightly salty at the same time.
For something more unique, Sweetea’s Wafingka (Waffle + Bibingka). It’s a waffle filled with cheese, salted egg, and coconut. It’s pretty amazing too.
I liked how my tea was so light and refreshing all throughout. It didn’t feel heavy at all, unlike some of the other milky tea drinks I’ve tried in the past. Next time I’ll try one of the fruity blends. 🙂
You can also purchase loose leaf teas, teapots, tea cups, and other tea paraphernalia at Sweetea’s so you can recreate the experience at home.
Sweetea’s is located at the ground level of SM The Block, North EDSA.
