We love this place because it is a good boba shop to stop by if you are planning to explore and shop around in Downtown Tempe. t's also modern and has an open atmosphere which is a great place to hang out. The boba is made fresh every 2 hours and they mix it in a honey syrup that is delicious.
About the Authors
Hello! We are Rachel and Joe a.k.a Bobacouple
We first began exploring new boba places around the Phoenix Metropolitan area when we started dating. We especially enjoyed going to boba tea cafes, gourmet bakeries, and other dessert establishments. As part of our routine when trying new boba shops, we would photograph the yummy beverages right before we began drinking.. We decided to post our foodie pictures on Instagram, and we were surprised by the strongly supportive reception we got from the foodie community. Our foodie hobby continued to flourish from then on.
