Craving bubble tea? You're in luck: a new business has opened its doors in the neighborhood. Called Tea 18, the newcomer is located at 3880 Truxel Rd. in Natomas.
Tea 18 is a Taiwanese chain that specializes in brewed-to-order tea drinks, as opposed to most bubble tea places that use powders. It offers a wide variety of drinks, including milk teas, foam teas, fruit teas and blended teas, as well as old-fashioned steeped teas.
On the menu, look for the Hokkaido milk tea, cheese foam tea and the gold pomelo green tea. Customers can also adjust the sweetness and ice levels in their drinks
With a four-star rating out of 28 reviews on Yelp so far, the new addition is getting solid feedback from clientele.
Linda T., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on February 22nd, said: "Their promotions lured me in, but I'll happily hand over a few bucks for their yummy tea. I like that I am actually able to taste the flavor of tea in the milk teas and fruit teas, and that the drinks are not too sweet. "
And Bonnie N. said: "I ordered their white peach oolong tea half sweet, light ice, and wanted to get grass jelly, but the cashier recommended no toppings with my drink since they put a tea bag in it. I've never been to a tea shop that gives customers an actual tea bag in their drink, so I was pretty impressed."
