The Green Tea House Cafe San Diego Reviews
Dec 21, 2007
I don't know if this is better than other boba "bubble tea" houses on Convoy Street, there are a million, but it's the one I go to most. Most of them seem to be Taiwanese, but the patrons are mostly Vietnamese and Filipino teenagers if I go after work.
If you haven't tried it, boba tea is a good thing. Mixtures of tea, milk or soy milk, fruit juices - sort of like a smoothie, but with "tapioca pearls". Now these sound like a bad idea- mysterious, chewy, marble-sized black slimeballs suspended in your drink. You'll quickly figure out why it came with a huge, cartoon-like fat straw, designed for vacuuming out the slimeballs. They kind of grow on you though, and soon other drinks will start to seem textureless and boring....
I think "regular" boba tea is black tea with condensed milk and honey, but there are seemingly infinite types and combinations. I like chai and honey best, boba Thai iced tea, or sometimes berry. Green Tea House knows how to make them right, a lot of the places are little franchise shops that have opened up where they don't necessarily know how to make them right... If the tapioca pearls aren't cooked right, they're either hard or mushy. They have snacks and food here too.
