With so many tea shops sprouting all over the metro, there is one tea shop that gave me the feel of Christmas in a cup. Saint Alps Tea House can be found along Katipunan Ave. (perfect location, since students and residents are their captured market). I ordered the Chocolate and Mint Iced Smoothie (or was it a shake?), and after my first sip, it was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas (how timely that it is just around the corner).
It is a good place to hang out with friends, or perhaps read a book or go on your laptop if you’re having your tea fix alone. The ambiance is really cozy, and the decor outside makes you feel as though you are in a Parisian cafe (al fresco). They have a wide drink selection, from hot to cold, plus good food too!
