Love at First Sight: Serenitea x Sesame Street

“Early bird gets the worm. But cookie taste better than worm. So me sleep in," says Cookie Monster. And I think I actually embraced that idea when I feasted on nothing but cookies for weeks. As a fan of this crazy-eyed blue cutiepie, I was so happy when Sesame Street collaborated with one of my favorites--Serenitea.

Hello, Serenitea x Sesame Street!
Serenitea has always been my number one milk tea. And just when I thought I don't have enough room to like this any more, it came up with a collaboration that made me love it even more. 
Elmo. Cookie Monster. Big Bird. These classic and well-loved characters have been around for five decades and continue to remain relevant to this day. And it's a perfect match with Serenitea which continues to be a strong player in the overly saturated milk tea market. 
Though the adorable Sesame Street designed cups are your usual disposable plastic or paper cups, you can grab a metal straw (or umbrella) from this awesome collaboration with a single receipt purchase worth PHP899
You must be thinking that PHP899 means gulping down about 7 to 9 drinks. Well, you don't have to overdose on milk tea as you can purchase gift certificates instead and have your favorite boba any time you want. It's also a great gift idea. Or have lunch here with some friends!
And what's the point of visiting Serenitea just to buy gift certificates? I made sure to try drinks I've never had before. 
I went with Lychee Fruit Tea (PHP95 | PHP105) with pearls and chia seeds, Green Tea Slush (PHP140 | PHP155) with pearls (additional PHP20) and of course, Wintermelon Milk Tea (PHP100 | PHP110) with pearls.
It was my first time to try Serenitea's fruit tea and I love it! The taste of lychee was pronounced despite not having any real fruit bits. I also liked that the staff asked me if I prefer hard or moderate press on the black tea base.
Green Tea Slush was good too. It didn't have that bold matcha flavor that I love but this drink would be perfect for those who are still exploring this flavor. Add some sinkers for bite. 
And of course, Wintermelon Milk Tea never disappoints. 
It just sucks that all my cups were Cookie Monster. Don't get me wrong. I love Cookie Monster! I even have pajamas of it as proof! But I was hoping that I'd get to see all the other designs. Turns out you have to specifically request for it. So I guess I was at fault here too. 
I can't wait to see the umbrella designs next!
