Visit Lush Bubble Tea
The newly opened and locally-owned bubble tea business is located on the 2nd floor of Potenciano Bldng., Leonard Wood Rd., Baguio City. A lush milktea place in Baguio is a few steps away from YMCA! When you’re walking at the opposite side of the road going up to SM City Baguio, you can visibly see their dainty blush pink, powder blue and hexagonal Lush signage! You could see a bank on the ground floor of the building.
Like any other establishment in the city, Lush Bubble Tea complies with the safety protocols to protect ourselves from the pandemic. They only allow a limited number of guests at the shop and they observe physical distancing. Upon entering, you are required to fill out the health declaration form and body temperature check. Another option to accomplish this is by accessing the health declaration form by scanning the QR code in the image posted outside the shop or click this link: Health Declaration.
Why Lush Bubble Tea?
It was a fine noon when I had a sit-down tea with the lady behind the brand of Lush Bubble Tea, Ms. Charlene Chumawin. I asked why Lush Bubble Tea and she “spilled the tea” and shared that “Lush” connotes of being “extra” or “luxurious!” It also means “growing.” The hexagonal shape of the logo enclosing the name of the brand means “togetherness.” When you walk into the shop, you’d be greeted with growing plants and the interior exudes a feeling of luxurious but welcoming feeling. I could honestly feel the warmth of the staff and the company that I am with during the tea time were just blissful togetherness!
Enjoy Hot & Cold Milktea
When the city’s getting cold and rainy, classic hot milk tea is perfect for you! It comes with chewy and delicious boba pearls. The Lush Milktea is their specialty drink which is concocted with classic Taiwan-style milk tea with vanilla, marshmallow glaze and toasted marshmallow on top! They also offer Oreo Milk Tea with Cream Puff, Café Latte with Coffee Jelly, Nutella Cheesecake Milktea, Brown Sugar Pearl Milktea with Cream Cheese and more!
An Oriental All-Day Breakfast
First in Baguio! This new lush milk tea place in Baguio offers an oriental touch with a traditional Singaporean-Malaysian dish called Steamed Kaya Bun. The buns are served in a bamboo steamer. This is served as a set (Php85 ONLY) with egg on the side and Cordilleran Barako Brew. The soft white bread has a generous spread of the “Kaya.” It is a rich Malaysian jam made with coconut, eggs and caramel. It is also known as the “dulce de leche” of Southeast Asia. A little trivia why there is a soft-boiled egg on the side; it is traditionally served in Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia with Kaya Toast and a hot beverage such as milk tea! The CN Traveler described that the Singaporean locals dip the bread in the soft-boiled egg that is dashed with dark soy sauce and a dusting of pepper. In Lush Bubble Tea, if you need a little more filling snack, you can add 2 pcs. Of mini German chicken sausage (just add Php40!).
A Lush Experience
It’s a good place to catch up with friends or when you got tired from your grocery run! I wouldn’t mind being alone in a warm and cozy place like this. If you’re into spontaneous photography, the shop offers a refreshing and “Instagrammable” ambiance! I also like the natural lighting that the place receives. They have seats inside and al fresco dining! Oh, they have a fast internet connection, too! But, don’t stay too long, give your seat to new customers as well, so they can also enjoy a lush experience and of course, to implement safe physical distancing. If you want to take a peek inside the shop before going there, you may check out the short Facebook live video that my friends and I conducted there during our visit.
