    Nice bubble tea! Has a stronger tea flavor. Lots of selections and not too expensive. House specialties are the roasted black milk tea and the oolong milk tea. You can also adjust sweetness level!

    milk tea with pearls! Tea is sweeter than a lot of places.

    The Roasted Barley Milk Tea is great! Tea Era is the best PMT place on Castro Street bc it is not as sweet as the other places and has really tasty pearls. You can also ask for Half Sugar.

    Excellent tea and their tapioca is a little sweet which I like. I'm partial to the jasmine milk. Ambience leaves something to be desired and there's very limited seating. Also cash only!

    Black Sugar Milk Tea is super delicious, even at half-sweet!

    If you're not feeling like caffeine, their smoothies are a great option as well. Lychee is nice and sweet, while Plum is the typical sour plum flavor you would expect.

    Their Ceylon Milk Tea is very comforting as a hot tea on a cold night.

    Cheapest boba in downtown Mountain View and imo, the best! With a line always out the door (partly because the place is so small) it may not seem like it's worth the wait, but I promise you it def is!

    Nick Duval · August 11, 2014
  • Eric N.

    This place has the best boba along Castro but it is the dustiest place I have ever been to! I'm talking layers of dust on every non-food-preparation surface, including walls

    Roasted Oolong tea and roasted barley tea are my fav! Real yummy milk tea flavor!

    Roasted barley milk tea is the best! Service on the other hand... is another story.

    Peggy Nguyen · May 25, 2014
  • Glenn R.

    Their 'milk' is non-dairy creamer unless u ask for real milk.

    Glenn Robinson · May 24, 2014
  • Kara M.

    The Roasted Barley Milk tea sounds nasty but it's one of the best things on the menu. I recommend getting it half-sweet. Tastes a little like graham crackers.

    Kara McCain · May 16, 2014
  • Daniel S.

    Try the ginger milk tea.

    Daniel Shi · April 13, 2014
  • Matthew G.

    This milk tea shop has the best tapioca! They are always cooked al dente, and very well. The only other tea shop that can rival is ten ren in Cupertino and SF. Unfortunately this is cash only.

    Matthew Gabayan · March 14, 2014

    Try Aloe Vera in Hot teas... Yumm!

    Sonia Aggarwal · March 3, 2014
  • Matthew G.

    Cash only, but the tapioca pearls are always perfectly al dente. The tea is great here too. Guava tea, roasted oolong and barely milk teas are my favorite.

    Matthew Gabayan · February 6, 2014
  • Benjamin S.

    Great oolong milk tea (get it half sweet)

    Benjamin Shyong · January 2, 2014
  • Matthew G.

    Best milk tea place around, no food and limited seating however. Barley Milk Tea, Guava Milk Tea, Honeydew Milk Tea & Black Sugar Milk Tea's are my favorite.

  • Hungrylee H.

    Tea is brewed resulting in a clean, deep flavor. Their boba is exceptional; soft-medium chew and never mushy or hard in the center. Faves: black MT, grapefruit green tea, roasted barley & Oolong MT

    Hungrylee Huang · January 29, 2013
