Finally tried Orobae, saw a lot of reviews that said the boba was plain and bland - I had just the opposite experience.  Boba was fresh, perfect texture and sweetness, probably the best I’ve had in years outside Taiwan or Japan. 
Got the Rising Phoenix of course, wa really good but will try Hokkaido next time, which will be soon cuz I’m already craving their boba again.

I went but line was too long so didn’t end up getting anything.  Will try again next week.

They are having some technical issues and only allow in person ordering at both Irvine locations.

Don't ask, don't tell  :-X

You can adjust the sweetness level 1-5, but to me for milk tea if you lower the sweetness too much it tastes almost like milk, which is weird.  I think Orobae uses natural flavorings not powder and artificial like most places so it is less sweet than normal, which is a good thing. 

I think if you order the rising Phoenix level 4 it’s not overly sugary (IMO), and you can taste the quality and difference.  Definitely add the tapioca, it’s by far the best at Orobae.  I went today and got double tapioca and came home a happy man.
