So after dinner, my friend and I strolled around to digest the meal and we noticed a super crowded cafe. It was around 11 PM at that time so we were curious what all the hype was about. As we got closer, I saw people sitting outside this cafe with huge cups of boba. And when I say huge, I mean HUGE! It was like those plastic pint size containers that you buy soup in! My eyes lit up and I was like "I NEED ONE OF THOSE!" It looked like boba heaven!
The menu featured "Frothy" Milk Teas starting at $2.75 and for an extra $1 you can upgrade to that pint sized boba milk tea. So of course I paid the extra buck!
They only had one person taking orders and waiting table so the line moved quite slow. And I found out there isn't really anywhere for you to just sit and chat. You need a $5 minimum order to sit at the tables inside the cafe because they also serve food. They do have two tables outside but it was so cold!

|Oh-ho! It's actually frothy!|
|All milk teas should come in pint sizes.|
I would say for the price, the milk teas were not bad at all. I mean, I needed both my hands to hold my drink! I don't think I've ever drank anything that big in my life. Although I think I was more thrilled about the size than the taste. My rose green milk tea got a tad too sweet but the original milk tea was good. Boba texture was soft and chewy. The extra-large size required so much boba, it got me wondering how many pounds of boba they had to make a day!
|My cup was too big to fit in the car's cup holder...|
When I got into the car, I realized my cup didn't fit in the cup holder! My friend was laughing so hard when I had to hand her my drink to put on my seat belt. I was forced to just hold my drink all the way back home.
And if you're wondering, my boba lasted me a good two days!
