A Gan Tea launches its first store in the Phillipines

Tea houses sprout like a mushroom in the city.  It becomes a trend that you could see almost everyone with   their milk tea. Whenever my daughter arrives home from school, she would always drop by in a nearby tea house and would get her favorite flavor with tapioca pearl.  It can never be denied,  milk tea  is now a  trend in the Philippines.

Last Saturday,  a new store,  A GanTea opened at  Greenbelt 2 Park,  Makati.   The Volcanoes Rugby Team,  Azkals and  JAMICH  graced  the  opening of the new and first branch in the Philippines. Different group of media, tea enthusiasts and  celebrity guests  gathered to  witness  the opening in Greenbelt.

A-GANTEA was established in 2006 by Chairman Mr. Vincent Ho. First A-Gantea branch opened in Feng Chia night market in Taichung, Taiwan. It was brought to the Philippines by Qoola Phils Inc.

A-Gantea, with “A” meaning a happy disposition and “Gan” meaning sweet, is devoted in developing all kinds of specialty blended tea beverages to suit the taste of students, office workers and families. A-Gantea guarantees quality beverages by selecting tea leaves from an altitude of 1200m in Taiwan’s Ali Mountains and makes their drinks in accordance with the type and character of the tea leaves by controlling time, temperature and water quality precisely.

What makes A-Gantea products  stand out from other milk tea brands is their use of fresh fruit in their fruit teas and their special milk teas use premium imported milk with white chewy tapioca pearls and black pearls that are softer and sweeter that provide a different experience in the mouth. A-Gantea’s uniquely flavored products are sure to set a new tea drinking culture in the Philippines. A-Gantea milk tea has a balance combination of milk and tea flavor while original brew contains pure quality tea flavor. Its fruit tea is also as refreshing like other A-Gantea drinks. A-Gantea provides a different experience that sets them apart from other tea brands.

I  had  my first  A Gan Tea with Cocoa flavor and I couldn't wait for my  next flavorful tea  to taste.  It's just so  refreshing!

I took a photo of a queue pager that the staff  handed  me after placing my order.  It  serves as a  reminder that my order is ready  for pick up when it vibrates. What a cool  way for queue!
