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...

Great place to stop on a sunny day to have some tea and people watch. Downtown Greenville is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

I've rated it 4 stars based on what is available locally... and it really is a nice place. They are very friendly and you can't beat the location by the Reedy River. I will add one caveat for those who have been fortunate enough to have sampled milk tea in asia... it's not quite up to that standard. Almost, but... More

If nothing else, give their bubble tea a try. (Strawberry and Peach flavors are pretty good!). I've yet to try anything other than bubble tea on their menu, but it appears to offer decently priced lunches. Don't expect to be seated comfortably in the cafe - every time I've gone there the tables and chairs have been wobbly and just... More

I can't believe I haven't reviewed O-CHA yet. I stop here every time I'm in the area. Love that it's tucked away between little art studios. Love their pearls. Just a great little tea shop. Never had their food but it sound delicious and homemade. And they have mochi ice cream which I love!

Love this place. Stopped in during a bike ride along the swamp rabbit trail Had a very good milk tea with added pearls (tapioca). Coffee and Mocha Latte was excellent also. We decided to partake in a small appetizer and chose the Hummus Plate. I was very fresh and flavorful. A good choice amongst several others in the store. Great... More

After the initial trouble I had finding the place I was very pleased once I got there. The environment was nice and friendly and the person who waited on me was very patient and helpful when it came to picking my drink which---since there were a lot of options and I'm new to the world of teas in general, let...

Every time I visit Greenville now, I have to make my way over to O'Cha to get my bubble tea fix! Such was the case today. We are getting ready to leave the country for a couple years and we made sure we came to Greenville to get one more bubble tea! Love it!

We first had bubble tea in NYC and my son loved it. We were surprised to find a great tea bar in Greeville. We stayed in Greenville for three days and he went to the tea bar twice a day. The only complaint I have is they closed 30-45 minutes earlier than the hours posted at the store.
