Verde's Tea Cafe

Krus Stanley | Aug 2, 2004 02:02 AM

This place is near Fat Wong's on the opposite side of El Camino Real at 105 Park Blvd in Millbrae.

Large selecion of milk teas, frothy iced tea, flavored hot teas, coffee and shaved ice. Other colorful transaltions of drinks were Frozen Romance and Smoothie Freeze (about a dozen flavors including FRESH (on the menu) taro freeze.

The woman at the counter was determined not to serve me. "We only have black tea. After finally convincing her I was not looking for a cup of Lipton, she reclutantly served me up a cup of Hot Ginger tea. It was very sweet and good and spicy.

In the Frozen Romance category there was Avacado Green Teal, Watermelon juice and ALoe, abd about a dozen other flavors.

The twenty or so hot tea flavors included plum, tangerine, logan, peanut , sesame, pine nut and grass jelly.

These flavors were also available in the iced milk tea as well as dark brick milk tea, lychee milk tea, green bean milk tee.

Some limited food which was mainly thick toast.

Four flavors of summe shaved iced ... fresh mango, fresh kiwi, fresh strawberry and mixed bean and Taro.

Any place like this in SF?

Still trying to curry favor, I asked the woman which was her favorite black tea. She looked at me like I was a crazed idiot and said "I like green tea".
