Cobo: The New Tea in Town

Pin It Now!
There's a new chill tea house right at the heart of Mandaue City. Cobo is an attention-grabbing teahouse at the new J Centre Mall.

The design is probably the most interesting thing in Cobo. The place is just so full of color and cute doodles. It's like being warped to doodle land. Their wall mural reminds me of tokidoki. I would want to stick myself in the wall, if that's even possible. Their interiors are colorful and fun. You'll also notice that their colorful tables and chairs look a bit like Google Chrome, as pointed out by the boyfriend.

The Google-Chrome-like table and chairs.

They serve a whole lot of different tea drinks, just like Bubble Bee Tea House branch in SM. The only difference is that you can choose the sugar levels of your drinks from extra mild, mild, average, and intense. This is probably the best place for those who are conscious with their sugar intake. I'm not really digging it since I'm more of a sugar-all-you-can, if possible, type of person. However, it's cool.

We (the boyfriend and I) actually went there twice this week. We were with a friend the first time we tried the place. We ordered the mango peach green tea + mango burst, cobo milk tea, and . The cashier said that these are the bestsellers from their Manila branch.

Clockwise: taro smoothie, cobo milk tea, mango peach green tea.


Cobo milk tea tastes like has thing coffee taste in it. I ordered one with mild sugar level, though. Maybe if I got one in average or in intense sugar level, the taste would have been different. I liked it though. Their taro smoothie reminds me of Bubble Bee's taro slush. They are similar in looks however they are completely different. Cobo's version isn't as sweet as Bubble Bee's. The latter has this sweet honey aftertaste that makes their slush drinks one of a kind. However, Cobo's is actually fine. Maybe if the sugar level is intense, the taro smoothie will be really sweet. On the other hand, the mango peach green tea + mango burst was probably the funnest drink that I've tasted from Cobo. The pearls really did burst and it makes drinking really exciting. I also like its taste which is peachy for me. The boyfriend was a bit disappointed that it didn't look green as the picture.

I think Cobo is an interesting place to try out. It's a fun place. They're also not that pricey. Expect to spend around P70 to P100 for a drink. If you get hungry, they also offer food. But I like to pair my Cobo with Leona's red velvet. It's just yummy!

ate, i think you should try tea-riffic (sakto ba?) the one near sa ubos sa SM.. near Watson's.

their tea taste like those from tea shops in taiwan. so i think very authentic siya because gamay ra jud ilang difference sa taste.

i had a bad experience sa bubble tea house because their tea just tastes so bad (i am a tea addict) and it's not worth it.

i should try cobo soon :)

@Athena: Yeah! Kita na ko sa tea-riffic sa SM. Na itriga pud ko but we didn't have time to try it. Next time nalang. Really? That's sad. Our orders sa BBTH kay okay ra man. There are times na mo vary ang flavor, though but it's fine ra pud.

You should! Lingaw ang place. Maka happy ang colors! :D
