Tebo Tebo

No, I did not mean Tim Tebow. Tebo Tebo is a small Asian café that has all sorts of refreshing drinks like boba, slushies, and teas. You can’t have a boba drink without popcorn chicken. So they have that too and actual food like noodles and fried rice that you can order.

The interior design of Tebo Tebo is pretty hip with the round seating arrangement against the walls and the long tables right in the middle of the restaurant. Since the place is small, it definitely feels packed in there other than the fact that there were a lot of people eating and waiting to be seated.

My friends and I got our own drinks and shared sweet potato fries and of course, popcorn chicken.

Our drinks came in this flask that made its presentation set apart compared to other boba places.

Because of the sunlight and poor background, I made the guys hold up napkins. Pretty funny.

I wanted to get some kind of milk tea drink since I’ve been into milk tea lately. But because I was at Tebo Tebo, I had to get a non-milk tea drink. They’re known for their colorful, fruity refreshing drinks. So I got the Bimmer Girl which was like a smoothie kind of drink with pieces of strawberries and peaches. I’d have to say that it was probably the best one out of all the ones on the table. Not being bias at all. Ok, maybe a little. The drink was simple, refreshing, and flavorful. Just the way I like it. I’m definitely sticking with that drink again next time.

Would I go out of my way to go to Tebo Tebo for some popcorn chicken and a boba drink in a flask next time? Probably not. I’d say it’s probably a good place to check out once because it’s different compared to your usual boba shops. The drinks would definitely be perfect for the summer time. Check it out if you’re in the Westminster area!

Thanks Derek and Doug for introducing me Tebo Tebo!

7 Leaves Cafe

When I first went to Fusion Tea Bar, my friends and I had talked to the manager before we left. He mentioned how the owner of Fusion Tea Bar was brothers with the owner of 7 Leaves. I actually had never heard of 7 Leaves Cafe until then. After he brought up 7 Leaves, I took a mental note of that and told Briana about it since she and I like to try new places together.

The day that Briana wanted to try Fusion Tea Bar for the first time ever, it was closed! We were pretty bummed about it. Really bummed actually. I was craving honey green milk tea that whole week and I never crave anything really. And Briana waited patiently for a week to try Fusion Tea Bar. We just wanted to treat ourselves to some good milk tea. But it wasn’t meant for us to have Fusion Tea Bar be that day. It just wasn’t.

We went over to Kean Coffee to make up for not getting Fusion Tea Bar but the place was just packed. It discouraged us from getting anything. Somehow in the midst of our disappointment of failed boba adventure, Briana suggested 7 Leaves out of nowhere. So we quickly found directions and immediately left!

Here are some notes to keep in mind before you go to 7 Leaves Cafe. One. Bring cash. Two. Location is no bueno. It’s almost hidden. Parking is bad. So carpool. If you can’t carpool then you may have to park in the neighborhood. Three. You can’t really hang out at 7 Leaves. There’s just only two small tables. You’re not going to want to hang outside either. There’s no really no space but the sidewalk. Just an FYI. There may be an intoxicated homeless person sitting in front of 7 Leaves Cafe. Not sure if he’s always there but if so, be careful. He came inside of 7 Leaves Cafe and came up to me and Briana and asked for money. He said a lot of scary nonsense that I will not share here. Please be careful.

Though their menu is actually quite small and selective, it took awhile for me to decide what I wanted because they simply did not have honey green milk tea. I ended up getting the Jasmine Milk Tea which was a safe pick. The other drinks seemed a little too out there for me. I wasn’t ready for that. My main focus was to get some kind of drink similar to milk tea.
Jasmine Milk Tea

When it comes to drinks that are flower names, I can’t help but to think that I’m drinking poh-pur-ree. With that said, Jasmine Milk Tea tasted like popery. It wasn’t as sweet as Fusion Tea Bar’s milk tea. It had a light taste with a hint of popery. Would I go to 7 Leaves Cafe again? Eh, I wouldn’t go out of my way like I did this time around to go there. The drink was ok. I don’t think Jasmine Milk Tea is too much of a popular one, but the Mung Bean Milk Tea and the Sea Cream Jasmine Tea seem to be so instead.

Briana, I’m glad you were able to randomly think of 7 Leaves Cafe! Even though our experience was quite an interesting one, I’m glad we can check it off our list!
