As I said about The Cheesecake Factory, I don't want to really review chain places because everything's standardized but I must rant and rave about Tastea since I adore it so much. Every time I come home, I must have some because I have a liking for teas. They serve other stuff here too in terms of drinks (smoothies, slushes, etc) but I always come for the same few drinks that are the teas. However, my family members like the other things too so I brought home a smoothie for my mom!

This is a picture of the "Gigantic" Taro Fantasy with boba. The sizes at Tastea are either "Gigantic" or "Even More," and their boba is their signature green. It contrasts quite nicely with the stark purple in this taro drink, which must be heavily creamed because it definitely tastes very smooth when I have some. It's a great drink to have if you're looking for a sweet, creamy drink. Also, their boba is always made well. I haven't had a complaint about it either being too soft or hard before!

Here's my "Even More" Peach Me Sweetea, a drink of peach and strawberry fruit tea with chunks of each fruit. I love how much fruit I get in Tastea drinks; there's usually enough that after I finish my drink, I have to dump out the ice and use my straw as a spoon for the stuff at the bottom. Anyhow, this is a great light tea with plenty of fruity flavor. The fruit chunks are great - I'd say that the peach is probably canned but the strawberries are either frozen or fresh (probably fresh in the summer). Either way, fantastic stuff. Tastea rocks, and I wish they had a lot more locations so everyone else could share in the greatness.
