The new arrival has gotten off to a solid start thus far, with a four-star rating out of 49 reviews on Yelp.

Harry H., who reviewed the shop on July 22, wrote, "Happy Lemon is the best tasting milk tea I ever had, it has so many varieties of flavors to choose from and each is delicious. Especially the Rock Salt Crema series, their best seller, it is so special and delicious."

Yelper Pauli D. added, “I got the milk tea with sea salt cream and an add on of tapioca. This drink was honestly so much better than I was expecting. The milk tea does not have any aftertaste or leave your mouth feeling as if it's covered in sugar."

Head on over to check it out: Happy Lemon is open from 9:30 a.m.–9:30 p.m. on Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.–7 p.m. on Sunday.
