I've been on an Omomo kick recently.  My go-to is the Creamomo Black Jade Milk Tea with Cheese Foam, 80% Reg Ice with Boba.

The ultimate would be a Creamomo Rising Phoenix L3 with Cheese Foam + Orabae Boba... will never happen, but one can dream.

Was never a fan of cheese foam on boba. I tried it once and I don't get the craze.

Did you mix it before drinking?  It’s a bit much if you leave it all for the end but if you gently mix/shake the drink before you puncture the seal with your straw, it nicely distributes the creamy foam throughout the drink.

Tried Tiger Sugar on Sand Canyon and Irvine Center.  I guess they are famous for their Brown Sugar Milk Tea but I’m typically not a fan so just got the “Tea Latte” which is apparently their version on Milk Tea.  It was ok but not my fave and not sure what all the hype is about.  I’d buy it again but probably won’t be craving it any time soon.

Cloudy Co is the best for milk tea. I love how there are no lines for this place and all the hype is at omomo + orobae.

I like Cloudy Co also but try the Black Jade Milk Tea (50 or 75%) with cheese foam at Omomo.  That one is my fave.

After months of driving by and giving up on orobae, finally tried it tonight. I got rising phoenix and gyokuro milk teas level 3 and no ice because it’s late and planning to drink it tomorrow. I took sips from both and wow is it sweet!! Can’t tell if I truly like it or the sugar. Have to drop to level 2 next time.

I went to Orobae during the recent storms hoping for no line. No chance. They still had 10 people huddled around the front door waiting in the rain.

LOL…but that’s just drinking more sugar not tea! I like when sugar enhances the tea taste not overpower.
I have to admit, orobae was good. I usually don’t have the patience to wait in line though so I don’t know when I’ll be able to have it next.

Does omomo have a wait?

soma tea recently opened. Milk tea isn't bad, but boba isn't as good as Cloudy Co.

Tried it this weekend and really liked the signature milk tea, great tea flavor and boba was good texture.  I’ll def be back here.  Another plus was that 8 hours in the fridge and the boba was still chewy at night, usually they get hard in the fridge after 4 hours.

Anyway at Soma I had the Golden Milk Tea and Signature.  Signature was definitely better but want to try the lavender or chocolate banana next time.

I had soma this past weekend. I got the signature milk tea. I liked it, I could taste the hong cha base and it really reminded me of a traditional Taiwanese milk tea. A sweet black tea, not like shops where the classic is assam or something.

I’ve been enjoying the Metal Buddha Oolong at Orobae.

I'm a fan of the Gyokuro Green Milk Tea. Still haven't tried a Metal Buddha.
