Nothing beats the original – CHINGKEETEA’s new home still serves Cagayan de Oro City’s best milk tea with their best seller – wintermelon milk tea. But the added draw is the much bigger space with walls of artistic creativity and limitless imagination in interior decoration.

The new home somewhat resurrected an old apartment building along Arch. Hayes Street near Viajero Outdoor Center. It occupies three levels and basically renovated all available spaces including the garage and garden area.


It’s like an art museum to some extent showcasing the works of Chingkee Te – the owner.


Patrons just love the ambiance of its interiors…
