Here in Old Towne Orange, we have so many shops, restaurants, dessert shops, and merchants to visit and enjoy! From A la Minute to It's About Time, there is something for just about everyone! This week, we are so happy to welcome T-Milk Boba to Old Towne Orange! Boba tea is a trend that seems to have taken over in Southern California. The phrase "let's get boba" has been used in place of "let's get coffee" more and more!
What is boba, you ask? Boba is a Taiwanese drink that has totally blown up! You start with a drink: whether it is iced tea, coffee, or a smoothie. Then, you get to add the boba balls, which are tapioca balls made from cassava root. The boba are cooked in sugar or honey until they become chewy and sweet. It's a flavor sensation that's quite unique!
On Monday, I got the pleasure of taking my President's Day to head down to Old Towne and stop by T-Milk Boba. The store was busy with customers who also wanted to try out the new boba place! When we first posted about "the new boba place," we got so many comments on our Instagram and Twitter about where and when it was opening! As a matcha fan, I tried the match lemonade with boba! The boba was caramel flavored, which made for an interesting pairing with the lemonade (not the perfect match made in heaven). Next time, I would try a coffee drink to complement the caramel flavored boba.
The store offers so many drink options, such as smoothies, milk teas, fruit teas, ice cream, and matcha drinks! Check out their extensive menu!
T-Milk Boba is located at 162 N Glassell St, right next to Big Red Comics! Visit them this weekend! Have a great day everyone and we will see you in Old Towne!
