Thousand Teas At Mezza Residences

A new tea place brews up serious tea drinking in Manila.

Pouring in the old with the new, the Thousand Teas was set up by a group of tea connoisseurs in the bustling student hub of Mezza Residences, Aurora Blvd., Quezon City. Within effervescent confines scented with the fresh aroma of the posh yet classic beverage, it offers a wide variety of drinks and flavors that are either time tested or avant garde.

For today’s youth on the go, Thousand Teas offers milk teas and its Frubble tea slushes. These drinks combine premium grade tea with natural fruit flavors to offer a cool, refreshing and healthy drink. For traditionalists, the store also offers the Timeless Blends. Boasting a wide variety of fragrant tea products only a true aficionado can provide, the Timeless Blends are best brewed at the heart of relaxing conversations or quiet contemplation.

Complementing the wide selection of teas are the pastry and pasta selections. Emulating the sophisticated refinement of the British tea culture with a little Asian mix, customers can choose between traditional tea time fare like scones and cakes or they can mix and match with various dishes to suit their mood and taste.

True to its attempt to bring traditional tea drinking to the Philippines, Thousand Teas presents more than a few beverages, it also brews up a social art form that comes in the pouring of the cup.

Blooming Tea

As a classroom teacher, one of my main concerns was ‘How can I get my reluctant readers interested in reading?’… I’d ask other teachers, attend professional development seminars, read books, and search the internet to find whatever available about the topic. What I read and researched seemed to connect to what was happening in my classroom… most often, it was my male students, (not all) but mostly, which would openly state that they disliked reading.

They did not read for pleasure at home and being an avid reader and knowing how important literacy skills are for success in most occupations- I needed to change they way these students viewed reading. Not only for their success as students but for their futures and perhaps (this was always my secret wish) I could lead them to a new path, one that leads them to loving literacy. Whether my reluctant readers found a love and passion for comics, mysteries, reading blogs, or a love of technical or how-to books! So long as it changed their view of reading; I was elated!
