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...

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
