  • The roasted barley milk tea with boba is the thing to get here.
  • It's not on the board at all, but you can order your tea "half sugar" to avoid overload.
  • The only non-powder based teas here are oolong milk tea, jasmine milk tea and roasted barley milk tea.
  • Jasmine milk tea with pearls is the best in the south bay
  • Closed on Tuesdays. :(
  • Their balls are the perfect texture. Feels better in your mouth than tapex or Verde
  • Nice bubble tea! Has a stronger tea flavor. Lots of selections and not too expensive. House specialties are the roasted black milk tea and the oolong milk tea. You can also adjust sweetness level!
  • Closed on Tuesday. :(
  • Remember their closed on Tuesdays.. Who closes on a Tuesday?
  • Love the strawberry milk tea! Tastes better with pearls though.
  • I love the lychee tea!
  • Taro milk tea with lychee jelly, yum!
  • Excellent tea and their tapioca is a little sweet which I like. I'm partial to the jasmine milk. Ambience leaves something to be desired and there's very limited seating. Also cash only!
  • This place has the best boba along Castro but it is the dustiest place I have ever been to! I'm talking layers of dust on every non-food-preparation surface, including walls
  • Roasted Oolong tea and roasted barley tea are my fav! Real yummy milk tea flavor!
  • Cash only, but the tapioca pearls are always perfectly al dente. The tea is great here too. Guava tea, roasted oolong and barely milk teas are my favorite.
  • Barley Milk Tea with Pudding, get it
  • Out of nearby Cafe Verde and Tapioca Express and even San Mateo's Tpumps and Cupertino's Fantasia, Tea Era is my favorite. They get the boba just right. Lightly sweet.
  • Try the honey oolong milk tea :) my all time favorite!
  • Get the genmai milk tea with 1/3 sugar, no pearls, regular ice. If genmai isn't available (which happens fairly often), get the grapefruit green tea with 1/3 sugar, no pearls, regular ice.
