There’s a simple cup of tea that helps you to relax in the evening, and then there are the bubble teas at Tbaar—tall glasses in vivid pastel colors that look like a cross between a smoothie and a lava lamp. Plump tapioca beads sink to the bottom of teas in 12 flavors, which range from mango and strawberry to almond and mocha. Smoothies blended from fresh fruit keep the emphasis on texture with big chunks of pineapple or peach or the tailor-made combinations in Tbaar’s constellation smoothies, each recommended for 1 of 12 zodiac signs and giving drinkers the ability to know their horoscope several seconds in advance. There’s also a hot-drink menu stocked with East-meets-West collisions such as red-bean lattes.
