St. Louis Bead Tea is now open on Delmar in the Loop. They offer an astounding array of beverages. Their menu has about 175 options. They also have a small selection of snacks, including a few noodle options. We had a very nice bowl of steaming wontons and noodles. The snacks at other tables all looked and smelled tasty.
Beverages include slushes, snow, juice, and many different takes on tea including boba (gummy-like tapioca that you suck through a wide straw), milk, pudding (milk or coconut jelly which is also sucked through a wide straw), and fruit teas. I had a milk tea with boba and milk pudding and learned that having both in the same drink is a bit much (personally.) However, the boba add a nice smoked tea flavor.
Drinks are around $3 and snacks are around $3 -$5.
The green apple slush is very refreshing. Next time I'm going to try the green bean slush. Viva la adventure!
