Pao Pao Xiao Chi Milk Tea: Banana Milk Tea and More

I've heard a lot of raves about Pao Pao Xiao Chi Milk Tea from other blogs.  I've read remarks that thsi local brand even tops their lists against globally recognized milk tea chains.   Being a huge milk tea fan, this has long aroused my curiosity.

A few weeks ago, I've spotted Pao Pao Xiao Chi Milk Tea at the new U-Pad Residences along Vito Cruz or Pablo Ocampo and decided to buy some for the familyI also bought some takoyaki from a neighboring stall which the family failed to appreciate. =(

The staff was very friendly and even helped me in deciding what to order.   


Milk Tea

Banana Milk Tea (80 php)
 Being a fan of Korean banana milk drinks, I was excited to spot Banana Milk Tea in their menu.  The fact that I've never had Banana Milk Tea enticed me even more.  I asked the staff if they use fresh bananas and I was informed that they use powder.  I was skeptic at how it would taste like but still insisted on it.  I'm glad I made the right choice!  This is the best variant we've tried there.  It even got to buy this again for the following weeks.

Rock Salt & Cheese

Chocolate RSC (90 php)
My brother requested the Chocolate RSC. It was delicious!  It was dark and rich with a slight bitter sweetness.

Green Tea RSC (90 php)
The Green Tea RSC failed to impress all of us.  It just lacked in terms of tea flavor.

The Peppermint Milk Tea was okay but nothing spectacular.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I don't know if it was because we set our standards to high because of the lot of online raves Pao Pao Xiao Chi Milk Tea received from other blogs but we were honestly disappointed save for the Banana Milk Tea.
