What You'll Get
Queen Elizabeth II has been credited with popularizing tea consumption among the British by insisting that the beverage be drunk rather than just poured onto disgraced noblemen during traditional unknighting ceremonies. Celebrate another revolution in tea consumption with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of bubble tea, specialty drinks, and light Asian fare at Lollicup. This Groupon is valid at the Roseville location on Pleasant Grove Boulevard only.
The Roseville Lollicup sports a solid-sustenance menu packed with more than 30 snacks and light Asian items, such as house-made Filipino lumpias, appetizers, and specialty entrees. Pair a smooth-sipping boba tea with the lumpia shanghai (nine pieces of pork and shrimp pastries, $3.50), or wake up your stamp licker flavorful entrees such as the pancit palabok ($4.50; rice noodles in shrimp-flavored garlic-annatto sauce topped with sautéed ground pork, tofu, egg, green onions, and lemon).
Lollicup’s evolving drink menu (it currently has opposable thumbs) treats thirsty Sacramentans to more than 170 teas, smoothies, slushes, flavored milk drinks, coffee, and more—many of which can be blended with varying amounts of Taiwanese boba. Much like gummi tractor tires, these large tapioca balls are sweet, chewy, and circular, and they can transform tame textures and tastes into subtly synthesized gustatory swirls. The milk teas come in flavors such as honeydew, mocha cappuccino, taro, ginger, and lychee ($2.90 each) and textures such as snow ($3.19), a creamy blend with a milkshake texture, and frozen slushes ($3.19), for those who like their natural wonders distilled into bits of colorful ice.
Lollicup's serene, cozy atmosphere provides a relaxing sanctuary where the overheated can suck down liquid boba permutations and not-so-liquid snacks while calculating the correct algorithms for their all-wingdings search engine. Call up a teatime compatriot or bubble boy and treat them to a little bubble-fueled bliss and exotic flavor with today’s Groupon to Lollicup, or log on with their free WiFi and write tapioca-fueled diatribes all over the internet.
CityVoters named Lollicup Best Tea House in 2010, second-Best Tea House in 2009 and third-Best Tea House in 2008. Numerous publications featured Lollicup, and Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars. Lollicup has more than 1300 Facebook friends and was featured on Good Day Sacramento.
