“Seriously good milk tea, I don't drink much milk tea but if I ever feel like it, I will make the 20 minute drive here. I feel like it's not entirely worth the wait when its a 30 minute long line, but for the days I get lucky and its a 5 minute wait, it's amazing!“

“We got 3Q TP milk tea (Tie Guan Yin milk tea with boba, QQ noodles and coffee jelly) on our first visit and became an instant fan. We adjusted sweetness and ice to our liking, and it was one of the best milk tea we had in a while. The milk tea was outstanding with pronounced tea flavor. The toppings were perfectly chewy and completed the drink. Order in person at the kiosk or you can order ahead for pick up online.“

Junbi - Irvine Tea •

“1st time going to this location. They have 2 other locations in Rowland Heights & LA in Westwood. Ambiance was relaxed. There were quite a bit of students just hanging out studying &/or talking amongst their groups. We used the self service kiosk to order so didn't get to interact with the workers aside from when our drinks were given to us which was only a couple seconds. Idk if it's cause there weren't a lot of orders at the time but this was the quickest I've ever experienced for a boba shop. From the time we started our order to when we got our drinks, the entire process only took like 5 mins. Boba quality was great too as it was really soft. Even now, as I'm writing this & the drink has been in the fridge the last 6 hrs, the boba is still as soft as the initial sip which is amazing. Highly recommend giving this place a try for anyone that's in the OC, LA, or Rowland Heights area. You won't be disappointed!“

“In short, it’s great if you generally love tea and know exactly how you want your boba tea to taste like. You can taste the tea aroma and so it feels like an elegant cold British tea. But the caffeine will hit you hard at the end.Long version: So every time we visit Irvine, we see this long line at this mall. We asked our friends who travel a lot to Irvine if they know this place and usually they do. They say how different their boba milk teas taste. Also, the reviews are mixed; some praise them to the max, the others say they are so-so.We finally tried them and can say why people have mixed reviews. We tried the top two: Rising Phoenix and Metal Buddha, both oolong tea based.First, you can definitely taste the aroma of the tea; this is where the first divide happens. If you’re not used to regular hot tea like Earl grays or Green teas; the boba teas may feel like they’re watery. However, if you are a regular tea drinker and know brands like Fortnam or Mariage frères, you’ll appreciate the balance Orobae created in their drinks. My friend easily explained it as: “like drinking cold British tea with bobas.”Second divide is the sugar and ice control: Orobae’s recipe will put the tea taste first and the milk will not interfere with it, meaning at first taste you may feel less of the milk. So no matter what level of sugar or ice you put in, the drinks will either taste like elegant milk tea (for fans) or watered down boba teas (for non-fans). And this can be a put off for non-tea drinkers since boba tea is generally known for its strong taste, creaminess and milkiness. Though you can definitely feel the creaminess at the end of the drink (or maybe it’s the caffeine hitting you hard at the end.)Recommended to try, if you’re sick of the redundant taste of general boba milk teas.If you aren’t so particular about boba milk tea tastes then only try when there isn’t much of a line.Hope this helps for those on the fence for waiting in line for milk teas.Other notes. You order outside. Mention you are first-timers and you can adjust the taste after your order comes out. Orders come out in batches so be alert for numbers at least 2-3 above you. Service was great, kind and professional.Personally, I liked the first few sips, but I’m now an old millennial so can’t take too much caffeine and sugar.And that’s my review.“

“Cute little shop I visited the other day! Although there's seating it's not much of a dine in and chill type of place. The seating is mostly just to wait for your drinks. There was a line out the door on a saturday afternoon and i want surprised. I got the matcha latte and the color was very dark, rich, and vibrant. It wasn't too bitter and not too sweet(I got it at 100%sweetness) There are two ways you can order, through the cashier and a kiosk. Their menu has a wide variety of different drinks to choose from. I didn't find anything super special about this place expect for the topping choices but i would definitely come back to try other drinks they had. Prices were also fairly reasonable as well.“

“This location is very local to me so when my girlfriend has a boba craving this is one of the options we consider. We've had a huge variety of their drinks and it's usually pretty good but there's a few incidents where the quality was NOT consistent and the drinks tasted weird. Sometimes the boba itself is flavorless but majority of the time we go it's consistent. When I'm having a sweet tooth I actually get the strawberry frostie (kids menu) and it's very sweet and refreshing. The price point for a kids menu item is a little much in my opinion though. My girlfriend enjoys their brulee oat lattes, Sunright milk tea and their coffee oolong milk tea (discontinued at this location). We've tried their collaboration drinks with Honkai Star Rail awhile back and oh god...the chocolate drink was NOT it (the Blade drink). The grape frostie (Kafka's drink) was actually pretty good though. They have the Maplestory collab right now but haven't tried the drinks, but I like that they have the Maplestory cups for all drinks regardless of what you order. Overall Sunright is a fine boba shop. It's good and they have many locations. My friend says the 626 ones are better though, but I haven't tried the 626 locations enough to form an opinion. Drinks do come out pretty fast here but you definitely need to stick close by the counter to hear your name being called, they don't really have a mic or anything so it's hard to hear if you're outside.“

“Absolutely the SWEETEST couple running this shop. I came around closing time and they accommodated my request for honey tea with boba. They even reduced the price to $4 for the large!Honey Tea boba: good tea flavor. Boba was still soft but getting a little hard in the middle (makes sense for closing time). Sweetness was perfect for me.They have frozen potstickers here which I'm excited to buy in the future to have handy for quick lunch at home. They also seem to have mochi and other buns. Although most of their dumplings seem to be with pork filling or vegetarian. Suggestions: I wish they would have shrimp only or chicken dumplings. Would love it if they made it there during lunch so people can have it with the boba. Service: very helpful, friendly, and sweetAmbience: takeout place“

“This place is like a hidden gem in plain sight. I didn’t realize until just recently that Irvine has a Redstraw, and as I’d only tried the LA location once a couple years ago and couldn’t remember if I liked it, I was eager to try the Irvine location. There is a great variety of drinks on the menu, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. I ordered the mango mojito with boba, and it hit the spot. I ordered it less sweet, and it came out just right. One thing I was pleasantly surprised about was the prices here are pretty low compared to other places in Irvine and LA. I only paid $5.75 for my drink, which is way less than the average $7-8 I’ve paid elsewhere. Definitely will be back to try more drinks.“

People commented on their popcorn chicken - very tasty and good portions. The fried basil leaves on top of the chicken was my favorite. It added a nice touch and was delicious with the chicken.

“Presotea is probably my favorite boba spot in Irvine. I get the ceylon black milk tea with 80% sweetness and no toppings. It's the perfect amount of sweetness (not overbearing and not too little) but if you don't love sweetness, I would go down to 50%. It's located in a shop area with lots of stalls so there's also lots of food to choose from and lots of seating!“

“The boba texture is always on point- chewy but soft. Cha for tea's almond milk tea is top tier. They work really fast and have a lot of employees making drinks. It's located in the University Town Center so there's usually a line around dinner time and after. The boba is reasonably priced and they also have snacks as well! The popcorn chicken is good. Although, the portion is small. You can also adjust sweetness, which I'd highly recommended. I typically get 2 pumps of sweetener instead of 5 for the large cup.“

“Cute little boba shop located in a small business strip. The drinks were good and the boba was chewy. Simple inside, and you can order at a self kiosk if you don't want to order at the counter. The prices on the signs don't match the prices on the kiosk. The price is about $1.00 more than what's displayed. The art on the menu also looks cute but doesn't help if someone relies on visuals deciding their drink of choice. (But I guess if you rely on visuals, you also miss alot of other delicious things that aren't appealing.) So beauty in the eyes of the beholder.)Overall, yoyo offers a decent experience but good drinks if you're willing to try.“

Osmanthus Oolong Milk Tea

“I have tried several different types of drink here. I like their Osmanthus Oolong Tea and the Black Jade. The fruit smoothies are good too but I prefer tea more. May be because it is winter time. I think the fruit smoothies may be really refreshing during summer time.As for the milk tea, I can really taste the tea. I personally like the bitterness of the tea. I always ask for less sugar because I don't want to be overloaded with sugar when enjoying the drink. If you want it sweet, you can always ask for the 100%.The cashier is very friendly and really knows what items they sell there. Although at times, some items may run out, but she always apologize for not having the item. Very good customer service. I must ask for her name next time.The tables are very spread out. They have plenty of their own customers. Comparing to the nearby Orobae tea place in the same plaza, this one has shorter line. For me, I think I prefer Cloudy Co's drink more than Orobae because I felt Orobae tea doesn't have strong tea taste in their drinks.Plenty of parking in this shopping plaza.Parking: There is an EV charger parking and disabled parking right outside this shop.“
