For over centuries, tea has been established to be a drink that reaps much health benefits. Its
antioxidant property provides a perfect medium for detoxifying one’s body from the toxins concealed
in the cocktail of foods being consumed daily and has been associated with a lower risk of any type
of cancer. Its soothing effect can calm the most anxious mind and uplift the gloomiest mood. And
for weight watchers, tea has also been found to help out in weight reduction and even on lowering
But despite the growing popularity of tea as one of the main culprits for longevity among the
Asians, many would shy away from the drink because of the bitter, bland taste of tea. While some
would appreciate the distinct taste of tea, most people would prefer refreshing drinks with a more
umami and sweet taste to quench their thirst.
Because of the mismatch between the health wonders and the unpleasant taste of tea, many
innovations have been created, and one of them is the creation of the designer tea-based drinks widely
available today. Milk teas are tea-based drinks with added milk and customized flavorings to mask the
bitter taste of tea and to add a stronger umami taste into the blend. Fruit teas are fruit-flavored tea
drinks that add sweet, citrus flavors into the bitterness of tea, creating a more refreshing aftertaste
into the drink.
Over the years, a lot of milk tea joints have opened to cater to the different taste preferences of
Filipinos. But because preference can vary from one person to another, one tea blend may work for
some and but not for everyone. Taking this into consideration, True Blends The Strip Branch decided to
embark on a milk tea store that allows customers to modify their tea drinks to their own liking.
Although the store offers the usual sugar and ice level modifications, the store goes an extra mile with
their teas served with a detachable lid cover so that customers who found their choice of sugar level to
be unsatisfying can get their drinks corrected.
But that isn’t all that True Blends The Strip Branch offers. With the store’s reasonable pricing,
milk tea lovers can get their daily dose of milk tea for as low as 50 php with a free pearl add-on and a
complimentary sandwich for as low as 45php. Even the store’s known bestsellers, the cheese cloud
series can be availed for less 100php. Because of the affordable pricing, the store allows its customers a regular refuge from the summer heat and helps its consumers acquire the health benefits of tea.
Not a tea-drinker? True Blends The Strip Branch also offers non-tea beverages such as its
yakult series consisting of yakult-blended drinks and Italian sodas. And like any other café, coffee and
hot chocolate drinks are also available for customers to enjoy. Feeling hungry? Customers don’t have
to worry about an empty stomach as the store also serves sausages with many sauces to choose from
and a variety of sandwiches from the ordinary TLC (tomatoes, lettuce, cheese) sandwich to the unique
peanut butter-banana sandwich.
As a newly opened milk tea store, True Blends The Strip Branch is very active in its Facebook
fan page as it seeks to encourage people to enjoy the goodness of tea. By liking the fanpage, the store
provides its fans information about their current and future promos and perks to keep the milk tea love
on the high. And as a celebration for their soft opening last April 6, 2013, the store is offering all its customers a FREE DRINK UPGRADE until April 13, 2013, providing a perfect opportunity for first-time
customers to try True Blend’s signature drinks.
True Blends The Strip Branch is located along Ortigas Ave., Pasig City right beside The Medical
City to cater to both commuters and passers-by as well as to the regular employees within the area. It is the perfect venue for people who are in need of a refreshing break from walking in the burning summer heat.
