Tastea is a well-known franchise from Southern California that specializes in organic tea and coffee beverages, smoothies, and snacks. Their locations are in Garden Grove, Rowland Heights, Costa Mesa, and Chino Hills. The first Bay Area location in San Jose will have their grand opening this Saturday 04/29 from 3:00 pm – 11:00 pm. The first 200 customers will receive a free drink, and giveaways will be handed out to all customers while supplies last. As a huge fan of milk tea/boba, I had the opportunity to check out their soft opening. After checking in with the host, I was given a ticket and got in line along with others who were anxiously waiting to place their orders.
Here’s what I had:
Bootea Shaker – Mango, peach, and pineapple organic tea with black jelly
Matcha Thai Milk Tea – Matcha mixed with Thai Tea, milk, and cream
Salted Cream Jasmine – Organic jasmine green iced tea with salted cream
I also tried:
Passion Attraction – Passion Fruit organic black tea with coconut jelly
Sunset Peach – Peach/raspberry organic black tea with mango bits
Karate Chicken – All white meat popcorn chicken with your choice of spice level. The person from my party who ordered it picked Level 2 (medium kick).
Buttload’a Fries – Lightly battered fries with Tastea’s signature seasoning
Shrimp On It! – Hand battered fried shrimp with Tastea’s signature seasoning
Myself and 2 other people I met at the event shared all of this, plus a few more drinks, and we enjoyed everything. All attendees were also given gift cards to use on a return visit. If you must have more of your newly found favorite Tastea beverage, you can also get it in a jug to take home with you. Nice!
I wish Tastea San Jose much success with their grand opening this weekend. If you’re ever in the South Bay, do check them out.
