Frequent cravings!

I rarely go downtown, but when I do, O-CHA is a must. I love their Kiwi flavored fruit slush. The tapioca pearls may not be your thing. Personally I hate the texture, so I just don't get them. It's delicious and a nice treat!

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.

First time here and enjoyed the honeydew bubble tea with pearls and jellies. Had try it all the way. Was really good. Not too sweet and tasty. They have lots of choices with milk, juice, hot and cold teas. Were great about explaining choices and offering suggestions. Neat to try. You get a special straw to suck up the pearls... More

The staff is always helpful and does a great job with making great beverages. Haven't tried the food,but it looks delicious. I'm partial to the bubble teas (Taro is amazing) and the Earl Grey. The view is fantastic, right on the Reedy River. Downtown Greenville is one of my favorite places and O-Cha is one of my favorite places. It's... More

They are known for their bubble tea but personally not a fan. After a long, hot walk stopped in for a refreshing cup of their herbal tea, a lemon berry blend. A great location to sit outside and enjoy your tea and the view. Very nice teas!

Every time I'm in Greenville, SC I make sure to stop by. The milk bubble tea is awesome. Add the extra jellies and tapioca pearls, you won't regret it. If you've never had a bubble tea, this is the place to start. You can't go wrong with any of their flavors. The location is great with the beautiful downtown area... More

I have been to O-CHA several times, and make a point to stop by whenever I am in or near Greenville. O-CHA has many different kinds of tea, and you can have it hot or cold, "bubble tea" or regular, with milk or not. The tea is refreshing and the staff is always nice. I have never tried any of...

Just about any kind of tea you might like, hot or cold, milk or plain, "bubbles" or not... My daughter-in-law got the Thai tea with "jellies". I would normally get Thai milk tea with the tapioca pearls ("bubbles"), but since my stomach wasn't feeling well, I ordered an herbal mint tea (but couldn't resist the bubbles!). She made it iced...
