Fifteen years ago, when our daughter was in college in Philadelphia, I fell in LOVE with bubble tea from a small shop near her campus. Although thru the years, I've tried several flavors, which this shop offers, but my favorite is still Thai. The bubbles are tapioca balls that have the consistency of gummy bears. So give it a try...

We were walking around in chilly weather and decided that we wanted tea. This lovely tea bar, located next to the River, was open and we popped our heads in. We were delighted to find a wonderful selection of teas from which to choose, along with some special blends. The shop also has some tasty-looking baked goods that we didn't... More

The tea is their main thing based on my experience with this place, so don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try it (for those of you how usually get just lates). This was a busy Sunday afternoon, two really nice girls on duty with a full store. So at least 15 minutes wait. But worth... More

The location is just perfect. We were walking around Reedy Park and happened upon this place. The frozen kiwi and blueberry teas were uniquely amazing. The atmosphere over looking the river running through downtown Greenville was excellent. The only knock was that there was only one young lady working with a plethora of customers. Made the wait time for service... More

We stopped in on a super humid day as we needed a break from the heat. Huge menu of all kinds of delicious drinks. Also had some interesting food (we did not try as we just finished lunch earlier). But the girls at the shop were friendly and helpful. Explained the drinks (our first time at such a place) and... More

O'cha really delivers great authentic tea in many different forms and creations you can make. There is black and green tea, pearls and jellies, unlimited flavors, hot and cold tea, and reasonable prices. The place has an organic and simple feeling, perfect for lunch dates, or a light meal. Along with tea they sell, pasta salad, pastries, and small sandwiches.... More

It's very hard to find good boba tea and this place has it and does it right. The mochi's are out of this world and the tea is perfect for a hot day.

The tea was good quality. The idea of bubble tea is nonsense bubbles on top of my tea doesn't do anything for my pallette. The service was so slow.
