Typhoon Pedring has been nothing but a menace, spoiling a supposedly normal Tuesday and causing me so much trauma, no consolation was conceivable except for a trip to Chatime SM North Edsa.
Despite power outage, ubiquitous puddles and tormenting winds, I braved the storm for the Brown Rice Green Milk Tea with extra pudding (P100 total – 30% sugar and less ice). The mousse variants are eliminated, in the meantime, from my to-drink list for fear of catching a sore throat – in this weather, you know what I mean! Hence, something smooth, creamy and “roasted” seemed to do the trick.
Having promised myself to soon try the 30% sweetness, well, today seemed to be the perfect time for that. And perfect it was, since lowering the sweetness level allowed me to savor the roasted rice and green tea flavor, floating in the silky creaminess of the milk.
Who’d have thought even a drink could inspire zen on this catastrophic day of flying umbrellas and tree-splattered streets?
