Craving the satisfaction of a sweet beverage—but not just any dessert—that familiar, chewy tapioca swirling around in sugary goodness?
Quench your thirst—here, we discover four of the best boba drinks no matter what bubble tea consumer you are. And the best part? They’re all close by, in good old Fullerton!
Matcha Brûlée Latte – Sunright Tea Studio
207 E Orangethorpe Ave, Anaheim, CA 92801
Starting off strong, we call all matcha lovers to attention—this drink is not just any other matcha latte. This drink incorporates a caramel brûlée perfect for your sweet tooth and uses oat milk as its dairy option. Add boba (regular or honey, your pick!) for just 65 cents, and you can’t go wrong!
Peach Green Tea with Aloe Vera – R&B Tea
410 E Chapman Ave Suite B, Fullerton, CA 92832
Located just near Fullerton College, the Peach Green Tea is a refreshing option for those who want to enjoy a fruit tea in specific. This green-tea based drink also includes aloe vera as a topping—if you so desire, add boba, and you’ve got the most rejuvenating summer drink! Just peachy.
Mung Bean Milk Tea – 7 Leaves
505 N State College Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92831
A uniquely delicious milk tea is just across the street—yes, it’s that close. The green-colored Mung Bean Milk Tea, only a short walk away from campus, contains strong pandan notes with a jasmine tea base. This drink is a very popular choice for those who enjoy the grassy vanilla flavors without any overpowering sweetness. Adding some honey boba here (or any topping, really) will do the trick!
Tareo Smoothie – Sweet Boba Co
109 W Orangethorpe Ave, Fullerton, CA 92832
Are you a taro fan? Maybe there’s a chance you like Oreos, too? The Tareo smoothie, where you can find a little way further down Fullerton, combines the best of both worlds to create a tasty, taro-themed take on a cookies-and-cream smoothie. Taro’s mild, nutty taste will have you wanting a sip or two—there is also an extra-large size option just in case you want a little more of this promising blended drink.
