Boba tea is one of the most popular Asian desserts, and the best places to get it are located in Mesa. While you can get your boba tea fix at any of the four places listed below, each and every one of them also offers a wide variety of unique and delicious desserts.
Boba Tree Lin Tea House
Are you a fan of cheese? How about cheese in boba tea? Cheese tea is a tea topped with a layer of foamy milk and cream cheese. As crazy as it sounds, the distinct savory taste of the cheese actually complements the sweet tea very well. Not a fan of Cheese Tea? No worries, because you can find some great Fruit Teas here as well.
The Street Boba Cafe
In addition to boba tea, the Street Café serves up a traditional Korean Pat Bingsoo, also known as Red Bean Shaved Ice. Their Pat Bingsoo is freshly shaved and topped with Condensed Milk, Red Bean, Mango, Strawberries, Mochi, and more. Unlike most boba shops, the interior design of this one is street-styled with walls creatively filled with graffiti.
Miss Dessert is a modern and fresh boba shop that will satisfy any and all of your sweet cravings. Besides boba tea, you can actually find many other tasty treats. Some options include, but are not limited to, Mango and Durian Crepes, Mango and Purple Sticky Rice, and even some Green Tea Ice Cream.
Tea, Snow, and Coffee
Tea Snow is a tiny boba shop conveniently located inside the Mekong Supermarket, an Asian food market. This is where you’d go to find Vietnamese and Thai desserts like the Five Color Dessert, which includes Red Bean, Smashed Taro, Smashed Mung Bean, Coconut Cream, and Pandan Jelly, and the Thai Dessert, which includes Jackfruit, Coconut Jelly, Pudding, Rainbow Jelly, and more. Not only that, but you’ll also find many snacks such as Pork Belly Nachos, Popcorn Chicken, and even some Fish Balls. This is where to go if you’re a bit hungry and looking for both food and drinks.
