But people are more concern about their health, and even though coffee shops are everywhere, tea salons are making a huge following nowadays. Gong Cha is now here in the Philippines and is out to take the competition seriously.
Gong Cha may be a new kid in town, but it does have alot of customers which are mostly Chinese and from other Asian countries. It is no surprise, as Gong Cha was first launched in Taiwan in 2006. Right now, there are over 100 outlets worldwide spreading from Taiwan, to Hongkong, Singapore, Macau, China and now Philippines.

A combination of the characters “gong” (貢) which means reward or contribution and “cha” (茶) referring to the tea plant, Gong Cha refers to the best tea offered to the Emperor in ancient China.
Gong Cha only serves quality drinks, as the tea is brewed and is disposed after 4 hours, if not served.
|The cup they use for Large-sized drinks is so thick - you can re-use it!|
What I love about the store is that their staff is well-trained that they even ask customers the level of sweetness they want for their drinks.

The price is really cheap. The store may be a little too intimidating but the price is just affordable.
|House Special reasonably priced at Php80 to Php90 only.|
Gong Cha is now opened at the Mall of Asia (near the Entertainment Hall). The place may be a little too small but do check out the one in SM North Edsa if you are bringing your barkada.
