23 Apr Infinitea CDO Premier Lounge: More Than Just Tea
For those who don’t know yet, or perhaps you’ve been spending too much time at the malls, the premier tea shop of the country has been operating in this city for some time now. Located at the VMP Corp. Building at the corner of Tiano Bros. and Montalvan Streets, Infinitea offers a variety of delicious, tasty, natural, and authentic bubble tea drinks, flavorful lemonades, soda pops, fruit and milk teas, frappes, hot drinks, and other refreshments. Infinitea also offers its own brand of snacks such as pasta, sandwiches, cakes, and pastries.
Infinitea is a Manila-based tea shop business owned by Mr. Louie C. Sy. Its branches all over the country are franchised by local owners, operators, and entrepreneurs. Once a franchise agreement has been settled, the main office of Infinitea provides the hands-on training and initial materials for the opening of the new business.
Other franchise owners testify to the tremendous success of the opportunity to operate an Infinitea branch. In fact, it is the only genuine and premier franchising milk tea company in the Philippines. 90% of Infinitea shops are franchise owned, including the one in Cagayan de Oro.
The Infinitea lounge features comfortable furniture, good wall decors, smooth but not-too-loud music, and free Wi-Fi. They are open from 9:00 a.m. up to 12:00 midnight.
All their bubble tea, milk tea, hot drinks, and frappes are made from 100 percent fresh and natural ingredients of the highest quality even from local sources.
In spite of being a bubble tea shop, their bestseller seems to be their Soya Drinks that are served in original, chocolate, and matcha flavors.
The reason probably is that many Kagay-anons are always seeking out healthy drinks in replacement of unhealthy soda and junk drinks.
In fact, even the soda pop drinks at Infinitea are healthy alternatives since they aren’t truly “soda” in that real sense. They are also made from natural ingredients since they are served in strawberry, green apple, blueberry, peach, and lychee, and are all fortified with vitamin C.
All their coffee-based drinks are made from premium Arabica coffee beans. Partnered with Nestle, the shop is now serving the Milo Godzilla served in iced form or frappe.
They also have a dark chocolate drink called the Dark Cocoa Milk Tea with Pearl, or the “drink of the gods.” A favorite with the younger customers is the Oreo Strawberry Frappe.
This frappe has the Oreo bits added on to the strawberry frappe instead of being crushed and blended with the main ingredients. In similar form to this are the Green Tea Hazelnut Frappe and Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappe.
While some provincial branches don’t serve the Wintermelon Lemonade drink and Wintermelon Milk Tea, it is made available at the Cagayan de Oro branch, though it is served depending on the seasonal availability of the fruit from local growers.
In looking for the tea shop, the nearest landmarks would be the Inilog Grill or the Blessed Mother College also near the corner of Tiano and Montalvan Streets.
