I was recently invited by Seattle's Best Coffee for an afternoon delight with fellow bloggers. It was a good opportunity to try Seattle's since I was planning to do a coffee-and-cheesecake thing there (I'm quite addicted to cheesecake recently). Little did I know that I would be up for a challenge: Milk Tea!
If you've been reading this blog, you'll notice that I don't have posts about milk tea. It is because for some reasons, I don't like milk tea. There's this taste that I just don't like. I don't like pearls too, that even my taho doesn't have sago on it.
I had to tell this to Eric of SBC that he told me that he'll serve me coffee if I didn't like milk tea. But hey, the event's for SBC Milk Tea, and if I can eat frog legs, I can definitely drink milk tea. :)
Unlike other milk tea shops, SBC Milk Tea has one unique flavor. It is a blend of four kinds of tea: black tea, green tea, English breakfast and Jasmine, with caramel for the sweetness. SBC Milk Tea is available in both hot and iced (with red tapioca pearls).

I liked the mildness of the SBC Milk Tea, the sweetness is just right for me. I find myself instinctively sipping both the hot and iced milk tea. I liked both iced and hot versions.
SBC Milk Tea is available until the end of March 2012.
|SBC Valentine Cookies|
For the Valentine season, Seattle's Best Coffee offers Valentine Cookies. Available in four different designs, these cookies are butter cookies covered in fondant. At Php 85 a piece, it's a perfect Valentine give-away.
SBC Valentine Cookies are available until February 21, 2012.
Seattle's Best also offers meals that goes well with their drinks:
|Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Panini|
I had Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Panini (Php 205). It is premium smoked salmon, soft cream cheese and lettuce in whole wheat ciabatta. It's a heavy but healthy treat, a must-try especially if you're on a diet (but no, I'm not a diet.haha)
Another healthy treat is the All-Vegetable Salad (Php 165), a mix of fresh veggies with almonds, olives and croutons and Parmesan cheese.
SBC also serve pasta like Arrabiatta (Php 175), which is penne with slightly spicy tomato-based sauce with Parmesan cheese and anchovies. I found it sweet for an Arrabiatta, but good enough if you can't tolerate spicy food.
SBC also offers all-day breakfast like pancakes, omellettes and big breakfasts, which I'm going to try soon (I love breakfast!)
Thanks to Seattle's Best Coffee Philippines for having us. :)
