Alishan at The Alley Offers Sweet Yet Guilt-Free Drinks
The milk tea craze is obviously here to stay, especially as it is continuously catapulted by shops with varying concepts opening left and right—one of which is Alishan at The Alley.
Situated beside Dean & DeLuca in Legazpi Village, Alishan at the Alley is a quaint beverage shop where the pile of people—which is seemingly part of their facade and everyday operation—speaks for their identity as a brand.
Alishan at the Alley takes pride in their beverages ranging from milk teas to fruit teas. This is not only because they ooze with the familiarly sweet, tangy flavor, but also because they offer guilt-free drinks made with organic ingredients.
In hindsight, their Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cheese Brûlée (Php 120/Php 140) might strike as a regular brown sugar milk tea, but it is unlike those since the handful of boba taking refuge at the bottom is made with 100% original tapioca.

Their tapioca is both gluten and nut-free, while the brown sugar glazing the drink is produced through organic molasses that prevent tooth decay and improve stress-resistance.
Similarly, the Purple Yam Pearl Milk with Custard Pudding (Php 130/Php 150) is made of completely organic purple yam.

Meanwhile, the Peach, Passion Fruit, Basil (Php 120/Php 140) is a peculiar blend of visibly, passion fruit and basil.

Aside from being at the market’s forefront where health is the top priority, Alishan at the Alley also ensures that they are able to bring Taiwanese artistry through their milk teas.
They base their beverages in the most sought-after tea in Taiwan namely “Alishan Tea” or the “Champagne of Tea.”
Alishan at the Alley in Makati City recently dwelled in their current space, and since then, people have been willingly lining up to cop the drinks that they offer. They currently offer take-out drinks only.
