This Shop Lets You Have Your Milk Tea Served In Bamboo Cups

It's an eco-friendly way to support local products, too.

This milk tea shop in Iloilo is selling milk tea in reusable bamboo cups!  

You have the option of having your order of milk tea served in the bamboo cups instead of the single-use plastic cups when you dine-in. If you love your bamboo cup so much that you want to take it home, just add P80 and it's yours! 

This eco-friendly milk tea shop started when Melanie Dilao and Jade Joquino, two science teachers based in Thailand, could not go back to their teaching jobs. Their trip back to the Philippines was a vacation that became permanent when the global pandemic was declared and community quarantines started. Instead of being idle, they took a risk and started their milk tea business.

To make their shop different from other milk tea shops, they thought of a concept that not only was appealing to their customers but would also impact the local community. Maasin in Iloilo is the bamboo capital of the country, and Darlings' eco-friendly option is a fantastic way to support a local and sustainable product while enjoying a delicious drink, too. 

Darlings' Milktea is located Maasin, Iloilo, Mohon Terminal Talipapa, and Namocon, Tigbauan in Iloilo. Visit Darlings' Milktea on Facebook for more information.
