One of the best boba joints in town price wise and quality but the people who work there are dumb and rude. Customer service sucks, the new Tea Station in city of industry on Gale is way better.

drinks are alright.. definitely better than tapioca or quickly other boba places. The price are little expensive.. with that money i would rather get a jumba juice or something else.. WARNING.. you better order something.. even tho you are with your friends.. they're ordering drinks... even if you don't they will still charge you for sitting there.. what an A hole!!!

From the moment you walk in, some degree of authenticity is confirmed by the mixed chatter of Mandarin Chinese and English. Cool decor of sandblasted glass and plants give it the sleek look of a chain, which I've found out recently that it is. Next door in a connected shop sits a more traditional Chinese tea shop with it's selection of pots and bagged and loose-leafed teas. Sitting at the tables are mostly young people, although the occasional older patron or group will stop by.

The menu is a collection of teasflavored, unflavored, hot, cold, boba, traditionalsure to suit the palate. However, their strength seems to be the tea equivalent of the coffee shop mocha-frapa-choco-drinks with whipped cream on top. They also offer sweet snacks to go along with the tea.

But beware: if you order your drink to go but change your mind and stick around, they'll ask you to leave. Prices for to go drinks are different than if you're drinking there. So make that decision early.

Try one of the Chinese restaurants nearby (I'd suggest Tung Lai Shun just across the street next to the Hello-Kitty-themed store) and then wind down with a tea and grab some of the great loose-leaf tea before heading out.

Pros: good variety in tea selection

Cons: it's not pricey, but it's not cheap either

They have good tea, not like Lollicup or Quickly's. They play nice music.

Pros: inexpensive, good tea

Cons: crowded, declining

This is a great place to have tea and chat with friends. Not only do they sell tea, but food as well. I hear the fruit teas are worth a try, but I have not tried it myself. Im a huge fan of green tea, so I would recommend the Milk Green Tea cold. Beware on evenings in the weekends, because there might be a wait.

PROS: great hang out place
CONS: long wait on weekends

I love the tea here! I've never seen a bigger selection of beverages. They even have an aloe vera drink that's a bit tangy, not to my taste. Their snacks aren't too good. Quite plain actually, but people come here to socialize over tea, not to pig out. It was tough getting the attention of the servers though.

The drinks here cost too much compared to other boba places. I agree that the quality is better but not much better that I'd pay an extra $2 per drink. The service is really slow and the wait is long just to get a drink to go. My drink of choice here is the Green Tea with Milk with or without Boba is fine.

Don't come here for quick service. Great place to hang out after dinner...playing card decks and other table games available upon request. Large selection of chinese tea and drinks...somewhat pricey. Very limited menu. Tends to get loud and crowdedfrom 11pm to midnight on weekends.

The boba coffee here is very good. It is VERY sweet. I usually get the Coffee/MilkTea Boba. Their peanut butter or strawberry breads are really good as well.
The place itself is big, cozy and great for big groups.
The only bad thing is they are OVER-PRICED! In LA, I can get boba for $3 max...tea station, to eat in, is about $5. If you decide to take your drink to go, then you get 20% off. So I recommend going there, but after the first 5 times, it might be better to just get drinks on the go.
Parking lot is pretty small, but there is another big lot nearby.

there are tons of boba places springing up everywhere now, but few are actually worth the money. this one is. the boba is fresh, doesn't have a sticky or sandy-centered texture. the tea flavors are good and refreshing. service is great. as for the young crowds... i consider that part of the experience. :oP
