In the Philippines, the milk tea craze is not only a trend in the metro but in other provinces as well, like Cebu. There are also a lot of places in the Central Visayan region where you can find your favorite drink that originated from Taiwan. So, if you ever find yourself craving for milk tea while in Cebu, here are the five milk tea shops you can find in this city.

CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice

CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice is not only located in Manila but in Cebu as well. Cebuanos, which is called to the locals, can also enjoy its best-seller flavors, like Panda Milk Tea, Salty Cream Wintermelon Tea, Salty Cream Matcha Slush, and the Chocolate Milk Tea with pudding and pearl, whenever they crave for this drink.

This place has two branches in Cebu. One is at the upper ground floor of Mountain Wing SM Seaside City Cebu, and the other one is at Ayala Center Cebu.

Macao Imperial Tea

You will also see the long lines of Macao Imperial Tea in Cebu. Manileños are not the only ones that can taste the perfect blend of milk and tea that this place has been serving, per Sugbo.

Cebuanos can also have the taste of their must-try drinks, like Cheesecake and Pearl Milk Tea, Red Bean, and Pudding Milk Tea. Unfortunately, it only has one branch in Cebu, so far, at the upper ground floor of Mountain Swing, SM Seaside.


Tourists can also find Chatime in Cebu. Before Macao Imperial Tea and CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice emerge, Chatime is the favorite go-to milk tea shop of almost everyone. It has been in the business for a long while now and has no plans of stopping.

Some of its must-try drinks are Chatime Mousse, Chocolate Mousse, and Banana Milk Tea, among others. Its customers even commend this place for its reasonable price. You can find Chatime in Cebu at eBloc Tower 2, Cebu I.T. Park.

Jelly Citea

Jelly Citea prides itself for serving tea, coffee, milk with jelly, and other "mouth-watering and healthy recipes." It only uses freshly brewed tea leaves from Taiwan and flavorings and ingredients that are 100 percent natural.

Some of its best-sellers are Paris, and New York Milk Tea added with rock, salt, and cheese. You can find Jelly Citea at No. 127 at Raintree Mall, Four Square noted.


Another go-to place when it comes to milk tea drinks is Serenitea. This milk tea shop already made a name for serving the best milk tea drink that anyone can ask for.

With an array of different flavors, it is hard to pick what is the best one of them all. But, milk tea lovers love its Okinawa Milk Tea Classic with pearls and crystals, Wintermelon, and Strawberry Milk Tea. You can find Serenitea in Cebu at the ground floor building of Calyx Center.
