Tea drinks, much like baths and nightmares about drowning, are always better with a few bubbles in them. Experience the brightest side of froth with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 punch card for drinks at Bubble Tea & Coffee.
Daisy-adorned walls catch the eye in the bright interior of Bubble Tea & Coffee, where drink artisans concoct 31 flavors of fruit-based bubble teas as well as hot coffee drinks. To re-create Taiwanese bubble teas, the kitchen crew marries fruit such as cantaloupe, strawberry, or watermelon with milk tea and blended ice to create creamy, chilled drinks ($3.49 for a small; $3.79 for a large). Bubble-tea flavors range from green apple to mocha cappuccino and can contain flavor-supplying tapioca boba pearls ($0.50) as well as tiny, collectible divers attempting to steal them.
Baristas also fill cups with decadent hot drinks, including foamy cappuccinos ($3.50), velvety vanilla lattes ($3.99), or mellow hot chocolate ($3.59). Sippers can carry tongue-pleasing beverages out with them or relax in the café’s welcoming confines, staring down any passing laptops that might be grasping at your free WiFi.
