As I was coming home from my microbio class the other day, I stopped by Honey Boba because I read that it was comparable to Half & Half. I wanted to find out for myself.
When I first entered the boba place, I found it really misleading in so many ways.
- It looks a lot bigger from the outside, but really it had seating enough for maybe 10 people at most.
- It reminded me of Guppy Tea House from the outside because of the plants, but really the place could do without it.
- They have the fat cups on display, the ones similar to the half & half ones.
The place wasn’t that inviting when I first walked in. Pretty much the counter is like this huge wall, with a square cut out, where you order your drink/food and also pick up your order. Really inefficient in my opinion.
I asked the worker there what she recommended and she said the Hello Honey Milk Tea was one of their more popular drinks. So I ordered it.
I brought the drink home and drank it there. The boba is good— definitely I could taste the honey flavor. The tea overall was way too sweet. I felt like I was going to get diabetes from drinking it. I regularly get honey milk tea from boba places, and this was just way too much for me. I felt sick after drinking it.
Overall, I think the prices are similar to half & half, but I still think that half & half is probably better.
Oh! Just giving you a heads up, boba is not included in the price of the drink. It’s an additional $0.50 more. I mean… what kind of boba place doesn’t include boba in their drinks/prices.
