Each gallon is ideal for picnics or potlucks since it contains 10 to 15 servings of milk tea goodness.
According to Gallontea owner Chase Chianpian, the idea to sell milk tea by the gallon began as early as 2009 when their former store received bulk milk tea orders from their family and friends.
Gallontea is currently only available for pick-up in its location near Binondo, a district in Manila commonly referred to as the city’s Chinatown.
To order, customers need to leave Gallontea a message via their social media channels and then pick the items up from the Binondo address.
The company says they are working on offering more items and expanding to serve more milk tea lovers outside Metro Manila.
