Calpis Sodas By Gavino's

This picture stamped a HUGE smile on my face! What a perfect send-off present as I embark on the land of paellas and bull fighting.

My fave donut shop GAVINO'S did it once again, this time scoring a beverage touch-down with the launching of their Calpis Sodas - A refreshing fruity-yogurt-based drink with just the right amount of fizz. Choose among the four meticulously tested flavors: Strawberry, Honey Dew, Green Apple, and Bubblegum. Three... (make that FOUR) CHEERS to health drinks! Undoubtedly an apt way of beating the summer heat.

Mother Of All Milk Teas

If a picture paints a thousand superlatives then consider the one above as such! SERENITEA (yup, all caps and extra "sinkers" for this beloved brand) is the undisputed god of all milk teas, as evident to their claim to fame:

"Every tea is freshly brewed by our (their) tea espresso machine to ensure the finest taste and richest aroma." 

The end masterpiece ensures freshness and full flavor - cup, after cup, after cup, with no bitter aftertaste as a result of tannin release, a common NO-NO of competitors who soak their teas for hours in large vat, dispenser or container.

My all time faves, MINTY CHOCO

After a properly extracted tea espresso shot, signature flavors and sinkers (optional) are incorporated to give it that OOMPH it is well-known for. Consumers and competitors alike are aware that the undisputed "Milk Tea god" does not scrimp on quality. What matters for SERENITEA is a highly satisfied consumer who will keep patronizing the brand and the yummy drinks they churn out.  Many happy returns!
