  • Drinks are too sweet and wait is ridiculous. 12 mins on a dead night and 30 minutes on weekends!
  • If the caramel iced milk is too sweet for you, the chocolate one is a good alternative!
  • Expect a 20 minute min wait time =)
  • Peach oolong tea crema with boba is my new favorite.
  • Bring a book to read-can take a long time if there's a line
  • D4 is the best!!!
  • If u have 4 drinks or more to order, call first before lining up!!!!!!! The lines during the weekend is 40 mins long for a drink... So CALL!!
  • Hot roasted oolong milk tea. $2.89
  • Matcha milk tea with boba
  • Hazelnut milk tea w/ pudding & boba.
  • The line is always out of control, so don't come here unless you are practicing patience. Waits are typically 30 minutes plus! But the drinks are good, just make sure to get it half sweet.
  • If you're expecting half & half quality. Don't! Low quality tea, low quality boba, low quality pudding.
  • Boba is an extra 50 cents!
  • Worth the wait! They make everything to order so it does take some time. The plus side is, they can customize the drink. They make their syrups and pure in house and they use high quality teas.
  • You can specify sugar level and they use real tea here!
  • No line in the early Sunday Morning~~!!
  • Got 25% sugar and it was perfect sweetness
  • Note to self: don't get half sugar unless you want bitter or diluted-flavored tea.
  • Boba too soft :( at least today.. Good tea though
  • Free super cup upgrade if you check in on FB M-W this month only!
