What a lovely day for milk tea! Tiger Sugar is now in the North. It’s available in two new branches which are within the same radar — SM North EDSA and Trinoma.
Tiger Sugar is one of the best milk teas originating in Taiwan. I was able to pass by Tiger Sugar Ximending, Taiwan last year. However, I missed it because it was apparently closed at early morning. Tiger Sugar’s first branch in the Philippines is Tiger Sugar BGC which is far from where I am. So upon knowledge of their Northern branches, I definitely got excited!
Tiger Sugar Menu
Tiger stripes are associated with the brown sugar effect drizzling down the cup of their milk tea, while“Brave as a Tiger” is their slogan — I wonder if I could brave the storms of life as well after a sip of milk tea? Haha
They have 3 series namely: 1) Brown Sugar Boba series 2) Their Brown Sugar Pearl series, and 3) Brown Sugar Tea Latte series. The price ranges from 100 to 120 PHP for the milk tea series and 80 PHP for the plain tea series — not bad for the usual milk tea budget.

Tiger Sugar Trinoma Review
Finally saw a line shorter than the usual scene at Tiger Sugar Trinoma at the Level 2 Food Choices, I waited at the queue line on a Sunday, 5pm. *avoiding long lines tip: choose the dead time intervals!* We waited for about 20 minutes before having my orders taken at the cashier (instead of the endorsed 2-hour waiting due to long lines).
My sister and I ended up choosing the Brown Sugar Boba + Pearl with Cream mousse under the Brown Sugar Pearl series for 120 PHP as it was recommended by their staff. We then waited for an additional 20 minutes before claiming our milk tea orders. So that’s a total of 40 minutes, but it wasn’t much of a hassle as we used the 20-minute waiting by eating dinner at Food Choices as well.
Brown Sugar Boba with Pearls with Cream mousse Verdict
I shook it for 15 times to mix all the brown sugar, boba, pearls, cream mousse, and milk tea goodness before taking a sip. It was really tasty, but I have to say that I got an aftertaste that slightly resembled taho, a Philippine sweetened tofu with sago pearls drink. That was just me though!
I’m not really a fan of pearls, but Tiger Sugar pearls and boba are tasty, chewy, and worth the try. I’ve never liked eating all the pearls in my milk tea until I tried Tiger Sugar’s. I also wished there was less ice in my cup as it had 1/3 part ice. But overall, it’s a wholesome brown sugar milk tea variant I’d be craving maybe once a month. Final verdict forTiger Sugar Brown Sugar Boba with Pearls with Cream mousse is a 4.5/5.
Tiger Sugar SM North EDSA Review
Update(4/24): Happened to be at SM North EDSA on a Tuesday night for a quick relaxation. After eating at Hawker Chan, I insisted that we, beau and me, go to the Ground Floor of Food Circuit The Block to check out Tiger Sugar and inspect for a long line at 10PM, haha.
Luckily, we were 3rd in line!! *avoiding long lines tip: choose the dead time intervals, definitely!* We waited for like 10 minutes only and tried another variant found under the Boba Series — Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream Mousse also priced at PHP 120. While waiting for our orders, we hurriedly had a mini grocery shopping. And by the time we got out of SM Hypermarket, our orders were ready to be claimed.
Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream Mousse Verdict
This one I definitely would vouch for! BROWN SUGAR BOBA MILK WITH CREAM MOUSSE IS OUR KIND OF MILK TEA. The way the brown sugar blended with their fresh creamy milk is divine.
I have to say that this is yet the best milk tea we’ve ever tasted! It has surpassed the rest of the milk teas we’ve tried so far in our opinion. The taste still lingers while I’m writing this paragraph… how I wish I could have them delivered at our doorstep pronto! This variant is something I would crave at least once a week! Haha. Final verdict for Tiger Sugar Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream mousse is a 5/5.
