BOBA TEA!!!

I found it, it took me a while but I found it. There is a place that is near-ish my work that sells it. it's easier if I am going out the Chipotle to get lunch to go get it. It's awfully hard to rationalize I'm going 10 minutes off campus for tea? yeah my boss would get really sick of that really fast. We on the west side are not really diverse enough to have it in our area. One of my co-workers told me that they sell it at all of the Siam Cafes but again we don't have those on my side of town. I found it at Phionex Cafe, if you live in Lakewood sorry they don't have it at that location (that location is individually owned). The one on Coventry has it and as far as I know the one on E9th has it as well. I had the Thai flavored, it's like a spiced tea it's alot like Chai, I've got to say I'm not sure how I feel about the Tapocia pearls I'm addicted that's for sure, but the tapocia pearls are sort of hit or miss for me. It probably didn't help that I had a burrito bol and the boba tea. note to self boba tea for lunch is all I need. Food who needs food?
If you are no in the know already here is a link for boba tea and what it is. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubble_tea
I'm sad that there isn't some place closer to my home where I can find it.

I totally want to go out and get boba tonight, now. I don't generally crave it, but this post makes me want some. :)

Ha ha, you don't have to tell me. The only time I can really get it is if we are going into Coventry for lunch, or if I'm feeling brave enough to go down E 9th after work and fighting the traffic. The burbs totally aren't cool enough to have boba tea. Thank goodness I work in the city and can experience these kind of things.
