If you are overweight or if you have diabetes, you may want to limit your bubble tea cravings to an occasional treat because each cup of tea can contain as much as six teaspoons of sugar.

Just 6?  I'd think it'd be more like 16. I rather eat carbs/sugar than drink them.

That’s why I order my Rising Phoenix at Level 4 sweetness.  Saves like 60 calories at least!

Btw - Do you blend those fruits?
I find that when I make a blended fruit juice with kale. I do not need coffee. (Healthy tip? Idk)

Similar strategy to Costco, show up midweek right before closing

Just went tonight at 8:30, closes at 9.  There was a line about 12 people deep... but moved pretty fast got my drink by like 8:45.   My first time trying it and can confirm the quality of the tea is very good compared to most run of the mill boba shops but if this is what the line looks like on a weeknight before closing I wouldn't even want to bother on a weekend.

No way I can drink a Rising Phoenix at night and expect to sleep within 6 hrs. Those things are strong.

lol wish i had read this before i decided to try this at night... but at least you can definitely tell its real tea from the tongue numbness.

I have Rising Phoenix level 5 frequently and never have trouble falling asleep... and tongue numbness?  Sheesh.

I did hear the cashier say the other night that they are thinking of expanding their menu soon.  Forgot to tell her to add the xl size lol.

Am I the only one who orders Rising Phoenix Level 2? Haha. The Black Jade is good too. I actually tend to get that more than the Rising Phoenix.

Last week I was able to get mochi donuts from MoDo inside Mitsuwa and get a milk tea from Orobae in a grand total of 10-15 mins. I thought I was in the Twilight Zone.

Anyone try HN Tea on Harvard?  Looks like they just opened a few weeks back and really good reviews so far.

Haven't tried it yet, but I know the Tustin location is popular. They also have a new location on Alton and Technology near Costco.

Tried the HN Tea by Costco, per the cashiers recommendation I got the Black Rock Tea Latte with boba.  Meh, it was ok but not unique, I think though they use real milk and not powder so that part was good.  Also tried a fruit tea with Aloe and it was just ok.

Went to the new Tea Maru in Quail Hill yesterday.  Got the Okinawa with Sweet Potato boba, 75%.  Both the Tea and the Boba were seriously lacking flavor.  The boba had really good texture though, one of the best chewy textures I’ve had, but the flavor just wasn’t there.

I think this place is more known for their strawberry matcha cream drinks, I think they also have a mango.  Maybe I’ll go back and try those, but I’d steer clear of the milk teas here.

I wanted to check out that place albeit the prices seem on the higher end even for Irvine.
