Tea Talk Tea Room BF Homes

Tea Talk is a sophisticated and cozy little tea room located just along Aguirre Avenue inside BF Homes that a a friend and I discovered while scouting for a place to grab a late night snack. Since that time, it has been the place that I would go whenever I needed to satisfy my craving for milk tea.

Since that time, it has been the place that I would go whenever I needed to satisfy my craving for milk tea.

One of the first things that you will notice the minute that you drive up to Tea Talk is the decor inside the tea room. The sparse display of bonsai and vases echoed the room’s cream, brown and green colors. It had a very modern look, yet still able to make you feel welcome and relaxed the minute you step in. They even have an  elevated wooden area lined with huge comfy-looking cushions where you can just kick off your shoes (you need to anyway if you are going to sit here) and just relax, very much like how you would do at home.

Even if the place is filled with people, somehow they managed to do something with the acoustics of the place that the noise level here is kept at a minimum. That, plus the free Wi-Fi that they provide here makes it one of my top places to go if I need a change of environment to do my writing. My kudos on the owners of the place for that.

As with most tea rooms and cafes in the Philippines, orders are taken by their servers at the counter where their menu is located. They offer a pretty good—but limited—selection of milk teas, fruit teas, yakult teas and brewed green tea with honey. You can also get to choose the sweetness level here: standard, extra strength (double the sweetness of the standard for those that have a sweet tooth), and lite (half of the standard sweetness level).

For their add ons, Tea Talk offers you a choice of grass jelly, tapioca pearls, egg pudding, and an intriguing add on called popping boba. These, according to the guy at the counter, are small fruit-flavored tapioca pearls which go really well with their cold fruit teas. 

Along with their teas, Tea Talk also offers a selection of different kinds of pastries. I’d recommend to try out their Banana Choco Chip muffin, which is one of their bestsellers. I’ve tried this and I have to say it’s really good. There is just the right amount of banana and chocolate in here that they complement—not compete—with each other.

The other thing that I really like about the place is that instead of having to wait at the counter to get your orders, they are served to you at your table. Although the last time that I went here late in the afternoon on my way home, I had to get my order at the counter. The latter should not have been an inconvenience, but I still had to wonder why the sudden change of service style.

Tea Talk also has a loyalty card where you get a free large tea of your choice after ten large tea orders. With its cozy ambience, delicious teas and friendly staff, you’ll be able to fill up that card in no time at all.
