If bubble tea is what you're after, look no further than this new business. The fresh addition to Portola, called OMG Tea, is located at 2891 San Bruno Ave. (between Wayland St. & Woolsey St.)

Featuring modern decor and a wide selection of drinks, the new shop softly opened on October 8th. According to its website, it aims to offer the most authentic possible tea drinks, staying true to bubble tea's origins in Taiwan.

The menu includes a full selection of milk teas, fruit teas, and slushies offered with and without boba, as well as "creamas" made with salted cheese (a mix of whipped cream and cream cheese topped with salt), which give the drinks a thicker, creamier texture. 

With a five-star rating out of 16 reviews on Yelp so far, the newcomer has already made a good impression.

Tony W., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on October 15th, said: "After having sampled many boba drinks in Asia, the drinks in the neighborhood have disappointed me, until OMG Tea showed up."

Yelper Goldie Z. added: “I loved the modern look and ambience of this boba shop right when I walked in. The staff members were helpful with recommendations for drinks, since it was my first time here."

And Long C. said: "Decided to stroll over here after dinner and glad to see that they were still open. The creama is thick and creamy with just the right amount of saltiness—just the way I like."

Head on over to check it out: OMG Tea is currently open daily from noon–6pm.
