Anyone enticed by the social craze should appreciate the Dalgona Lava with Korean Coffee Whipped Cream and Lava PearlsFood: 5/5
We got the Taro and Thai milk teas with regular black pearl boba. I’m not sure if it was because we placed our order later in the day, near closing time, but the boba tasted a bit old and grainy. The teas were good, but the boba was gooey and kept causing the straws to get plugged. Some people like their boba like this but I prefer mine to be a bit harder and chewier. The cups were cute though! We will probably try again earlier in the day and see if it’s different!
They have a variety of great drinks with plenty of room for customization and add ins. You can choose your sweetness level as well which is such an awesome perk. Contactless ordering if you chose. Really a laid back, cute, cozy, little place. I’m not on this side of town much but I really look forward to coming back and trying some more things. They also had convenient parking and the drinks were super tasty.
Just discovered this place recently in the Drake neighborhood! I get something different almost every time. Great place and I love the milk teas and boba!
I’ve been coming here for a couple years. I always get the lava milk or the toasted coconut lava milk. So good!
My daughter introduced us to this spot. We had a Great experience! Decent pricing for the size drink you get. Only slight I have is that they charge you for LESs ice! Like why charge for less? overall great teas
The menu, the decoration and the presentation (they even had a shaking machine!) resembled a pop culture bubble tea shop well, just like Kung Fu, CoCo, Elitea, Joy Yee, as well as shops I visited in Asia.However, the signature tea with black pearls and red beans needed a lot of works, especially when you asked for the price like the names above. All four ingredients (milk, tea brew, black pearls and red beans) should be reviewed and refined individually.On a side note, charging 60c for no ice was a new record for me. 30c was the previous record.Can't recommend.
Pretty good. I got the Jasmine milk tea, with popping Strawberry boba's. It was a little too sweet. I look forward to trying some other teas here though.
Good boba - reasonable prized. One size cup. Good location
The bubble tea and the milk tea are pretty solid. The other blended drinks (I got the Oreo chocolate mud) feel a little powdery, and aren't worth it compared to the tea options.*Edited after the response, for clarity.
Noticed this place while driving around in 100 degree weather and no A/C. Went in, and thought that the set up was efficient, order and pay via kiosk. Ordered called out by one of the two employees. Nice decor albeit simple, had a mango smoothie with black boba, companion had a strawberry banana smoothie with boba. Good portion size for what we got, and very cold, nice presentation of plastic cup with resealable cap. Would definitely go back if in the neighborhood and wanted boba drinks.
So delicious, I’ve only tried a few smoothies but my mouth is watering just thinking about them. Easily hands down best smoothies I’ve ever had. And the lil boba with the juice omg I need to stop ??Next up, actual boba lol. I’m sure it’s incredible though ?
Without a doubt, this place is my absolute favorite boba place. I don't know why, but 8 degrees is just elite when it comes to their boba quality. I usually get the Signature Milk Tea with 50% sweetness and black pearls and it always manages to make my day better. The area might not be the best but 8 degrees is an absolute gem! The interior and inside is clean and well-maintained and it has a great atmosphere. They have self service kiosks with a great selection and pictures of all the drinks so you don't have to talk to a server unless you want to, which is a plus. Overall, over the many times I've been here they've never decreased in quality, and they remain my all time favorite boba joint.
It has a neat atmosphere. My first time eating matcha ice cream and red beans. It was interesting but realized it's not my cup of tea. That's just me. But they have different varieties of Boba teas and other caffeinated drinks. We sat out on the patio in the front. All in all a good experience.Wheelchair accessibility: They are wheel chair accessible. Dietary restrictions: They have non-dairy options.
