Favorite summer drinks from boba shops

Sophique | Jun 29, 2004 02:01 PM

OK, I want to hear about the tried-and-true at specific tea shops. After all, one man's jasmine milk tea is another's toilet water. Case in point, Tea Ren makes a killer honeydew milk tea with *actual* jasmine tea in it, whereas Tapioca Express has only honeydew *flavored* milk. Anyhoo, please share the exact drinks you get from your favorite tea shops.

I'll start:

"green frapp" from Boba Loca (very matcha tasting)
"lavender milk tea" from Lollicup (nice fragrance)
"honeydew green tea latte w/green tea jelly" from Upper House (ask for less sugar and it's awesome...!)
"house milk tea w/small red beans" from Volcano (must not be the large beans)
"almond smoothie" from I Love Boba (has ground up almonds in it)
