    So awesome that they have a tea bar. With wifi and plenty of seating, this place is becoming a regular stop. Wish they opened earlier on the weekends though.

    Stopped by on a hot day for boba. There was a line, naturally :) I got the matcha latte and I forget what my friend got, both good! I never do more than 50% sweetness, more than that is overkill.

    Pair your matcha with tapioca pearl where you can get matcha poured over Straus Family Creamery milk, housemade syrup, and boba, or an affogato with Frozen Kuhsterd custard and rotating flavors. Read more

    The standard is the classic milk tea (my take is hot, oat milk, boba and 75% sweet). The fresh made boba is key. You can also enjoy the onigiri for a light lunch treat!

    Everything is good. Really, everything. My dog gives five stars to the condensation on the outside of the cups.

    They have specialty items like Chocochata (chocolate horchata) and Black Sesame Latte which you can only find at this location.

    My go to boba joint: this location is great and you can be adventurous since they have many different drinks. My usual is Hong Kong style, 25% sweet with Boba or egg pudding.

    Black milk tea and matcha latte are good. I prefer half sweet. Boba texture chewy and delicious. Crowded on weekend afternoons.

    Really decent espresso and cafe Americano, if you're not in the market for boba. Great to-go cups, too

    Always a line out the door but worth the short wait and their prices are decent and the product is outstanding! To go or stay it’s amazing! 🤷🏻‍♂️❤️

    Excellent bubble tea. They also have a great sign that says “Tea People”. Perfect for the gram.

    The taro matcha shake is too sweet, but works really well with a shot of spiced whiskey from Orbit Room.

    Try the strawberry matcha latte for a well-balanced treat. It comes with the three colors (layers) separated (green white and red🇲🇽), and you mix it together.

    Hard to differentiate a lot of boba shops but this was on the higher end of the spectrum. Has a slightly health-conscious bent.

    Not that good actually. Fancy and cute. But not non-dairy tea? Whats up with that. The toasts are amazing though, and not expensive.
