Boba milk tea basically runs through my veins. Yes, my doctors are slightly concerned. I love boba so much, and I am always looking for new places to feed my addiction! Little Tokyo has a lot of boba shops, as you can imagine, but a new place has just opened up, and I had to check it out.
TeaShot is a really cool tea and coffee shop that specializes in organic and all-natural ingredients. That’s awesome and all, but WHAT ABOUT THE TASTE? I’ve tried a few of the milk teas from their pretty big menu, and so far, I have not been disappointed!
I love options and this place has a lot of them—from the type of tea, milk, add-ons and even sweetness level! I always get the 100% sweet level, because I live life to the fullest. On this trip, I got their TS Signature tea with whole milk and honey boba, and Meghan got their most popular drink—the Peach oolong with almond milk and honey boba!
I like to judge new places on how well they cook their boba. Is it too mushy or too crunchy? Is it flavorless or too sweet? After going to TeaShot a few times, I can say that their boba has always been consistently really good. They serve honey boba, which contains the perfect amount of flavor and sweetness.
Now, I bet you’re wondering—Ok so we have the TEA covered, but what about the “SHOT” in TeaShot? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the cookie shot:
I’ve never seen anything so angelic… I bought the pumpkin spice shot and filled it with whole milk. They served the cookie warm so that every bite you would get gooey cookie with a sip of ice cold milk—DELICIOUS. The best part is that it doesn’t fall apart like you might think!
They even decorated for Halloween! Don’t need to spend money on a costume—I’ll just Instagram myself with this cat mask. DONE. This place is pretty new so I still have many more things to try on their menu, which they actually plan on expanding very soon! They also have a Happy Hour from 4:30 – 7:30 PM Monday through Friday where you can get $1 off any size drink and free honey boba. So how about you guys? Do you love boba as much as I do? What’s your go-to boba tea flavor? Sound off in the comments below!
