I absolutely love Thirstea! The tea is great, the boba is better, and the service is spectacular. I definitely recommend going to Thirstea.

Really enjoyed this place! The boba was really good and the vibes here were suuuper unique. Loved the touch of games and the overall aesthetic. They played a movie on the TV, indie music on the speakers, and it created a comfy and chill environment. Will definitely be coming back here.

This place used to be amazing. Lately quality has gone down. Always out of supplies. How are you a boba tea shop but out of tapioca boba?? I was told they were out of tapioca… the next customer they told them it would just be a 20 minute wait. I drove all the way from the other side of town to come here. I could’ve waited. I don’t normally complain but it’s becoming a waste of money.

Love this place! Best boba in Alabama! However, the employees in the back ARE SO LOUD!!! They talk really loud or even yell, and it disrupts everyone sitting down. If y’all read reviews please listen and talk a little quieter. Your personal issues can be heard from the bathroom! This has happened quite a few times which is why I feel it’s important to bring up. It also explains why a line forms quickly since no one is at the counter to take orders. BEST BOBA, but definitely need volume control and better service.

Absolutely loved it! Woman at register was so incredibly, genuinely pleasant, and helpful and patient with me, bc I had no idea what to order (being a 1st timer.) My 10 y/o daughters favorite place. AND they had super cool and some really interesting board and card games, along with coloring. Also very reasonable prices. Lol, almost forgot to add that our beverages were delicious! I had Thai tea with strawberry Boba, and they burst in your mouth and it's different but satisfying.

This place is delicious! My boyfriend loves it and I'm very glad he introduced it to me. The boba is AMAZING. We went three times in a week although it's almost 30 minutes away from us. They've got great non-dairy options, so one time I got a taro oat milk tea with tapioca and oh. my. god. Everyone needs to try taro tea. Wow. See you in my dreams, ThirsTea.

I want to start out by saying that I have always been an honest and loyal customer. I always have great manners and I tip. But on this Friday July 8 2022. I was told not to come back. The reason being essentially a lie that I was taking pictures ? of employees and being inappropriate with them. I was not taking pictures of any employee, and they have no evidence that I did so. Nor was I being inappropriate with them. How I was being inappropriate was never elaborated upon. I feel that I have been lied about and discriminated against. The police came and were very professional and courteous and told me with the manager there that I was no longer welcome their. The manager Lydia Johnson said that I made the employees feel uncomfortable, but how she did not elaborate upon. And she claimed that she did not have to which is wrong because being made to feel uncomfortable can virtually mean anything because it is so broad. One can be made to feel uncomfortable because of the color of one's skin or how they look! I'm glad that I've been banned because these people are rude, stuck up, and trashy!!!

Went to the location in Pizitz. Ordered a honey milk tea, and the server asked if I’d like any addons/toppings. I assumed it would be extra toppings but it turns out you have to pay for boba. Ended up with a boba-less tea but oh well, I still like tea. The honey milk tea tasted like straight cheese water. You couldn’t taste any tea, or any honey, just milk, and even the milk tasted wrong. Is this normal? Did I just happen the worst item on the menu for 6$? Idk but won’t be coming here again

This is such a cute cafe! It's a relaxed environment with delicious drinks. I got the taro tea with tapioca boba and it was 10/10. I will be returning in the near future.

We had been here previously and enjoyed the tea and atmosphere however the service has gone downhill since then. No toilet paper in bathrooms and they are not honoring the check in offer stating its fraudulent.

Get the Vietnamese coffee, wow. And don't forget to try their grilled sandwiches, all of it is excellent.

Best Boba tea in town! A great variety of flavors, and you can't really go wrong. Lately they have been out of a lot of add-in options, so minus a star because I can't get custard most of the time. But everything I've had is delicious, and they have dairy free milk tea options as well!

Hard to not like ThirsTea since the competition is other restaurants with subpar tea and tapioca. Be prepared to wait 3-10 minutes for your order depending on the time of day (staffing) and how busy they are.

Awesomely delicious strawberry boba tea! Thirstea is always a refreshing place to relax with my friends. The staff are pleasant and smile when they take your order!
