The time I have been in the Philippines I have struggled with a serious lack of milk being available. You can get UHT but to be honest I would rather not have a cup of tea or coffee than have that as a poor substitute for semi-skimmed. So what has happened is last month with my wife being pregnant I have been looking for things she can have at home and I bought Salabat as I had seen it on the shelf before and I was a bit surprised how good it does taste. Its made with Ginger and sugar and can be drank with or without milk. The downside for me though is the quantity of sugar in the drink as its a bit much for my taste buds but it does beat not being able to have a cup of tea. So if your struggling for a tea its definitely something worth trying at least until you find a source of natural fresh milk. Also Salabat is readily available due to it being a Filipino drink.
