Cagayan Food Crawl revisits 8th Avenue Coffee & Tea Lab

The Norte Bloggers missed the always- smiling owner of 8th Avenue Coffee, Mam Anj who is in New York, USA with her fiancé,  Rann. The two of them are about to get married next year and we are equally excited about it, just like a family 🙂   

So we were met by Dom Angco Baccay,  for the second Cagayan Food Crawl. 8th Avenue Coffee, a cute little coffee shop in Magallanes cor.Legaspi St. joined us on our first food appreciation tour.

Our main strength is the ambiance and the quality of our coffee or coffee-based drinks. We sell more beverages over ice“, says Dom.

They served Christmas drinks non-coffee based frappucino. Because their themed christmas concoctions are fruity and fruit-based, bloggers need to try and taste them all. 🙂

Christmas taste frap– fruity, raspberry flavored frap that is light to the  palate but with just the right amount of sour and sweet raspberry flavor. Berries abound on ber- months and this is the right time to taste them

Apple mint frap– slight taste of green apple with a twist of peppermint, topped with white chocolate chips and cotton candy  

 

Christmas cookie frap– tastes like your favorite cookie dough- topped with cookie and drizzle of caramel  

White passion frap– passion fruit mixed with white chocolate topped with cotton candy sprinkles  (*Norte Bloggers favorite)

Ice Salted Caramel macchiato– salted caramel macchiato, I personally  love caramel macchiato and adding rock salt into it is a big bonus 🙂

8th Avenue has a promotion from December 1 up to December 31,  you can either get a planner, tumbler or surprise gift. All you have to do is complete the sticker to avail the freebie.

8th Avenue Tea Lab 

The concept of the tea lab is similar to a chemistry lab, since the the owner is a medical technologist. Her mother  took charge of  the interior design of the Tea Lab, hence the unique and interesting design.

Choco berry milk tea a combination of milk and strawberry tea to fit the season. It is also served with black pearl or tapioca

Passion fruit tea– the all time best seller, ‘is sobrang sarap’. Passion fruit is kween, no wonder it is the undisputed favorite.

They call their beverage sizes atomic (small)  and molecular (large)
