Last Saturday, I finally decided to end my abstinence from Happy Lemon. It took me so long to do so because 1) I don’t frequent the areas where their branches are located and 2) I’m not a fan of milk tea, etc. Hence, I didn’t really feel the need to go check out the craze until my friend Isis insisted that we try their specialty while we were shopping in Eastwood.
This place, being a cult favorite, had the expected long queue of people waiting for their turn at the counter. Since Isis was the expert, I left her to order the place’s bestseller for me.
As requested, she got me one of the all-time favorites from Happy Lemon – Green Tea with Rock Salt Cheese. I have been seeing raves about it all over my social network for months now. Finally, I got the chance to try it myself.
The verdict: Not bad! I do think the combination works well except that I find all the cheese and cream too rich for me. Sorry, if people were expecting me to rave about it too. As I have said, I am not a huge fan of milk tea. 🙂
On the other hand, Isis got something from the lemon series – Lemon Peppermint with Nata de Coco. I also got to try this and liked it better than my own drink because I enjoy light and fruity flavors. I also adore Nata de Coco so this was perfect.
The verdict: I like this and would get it again! 🙂
My drink and I. 🙂
Isis, whom I have missed so much!
Eventually, we ended up swapping drinks because she wanted my drink too. Can’t wait to try the other flavors. 🙂
