One of the most delightful surprises of a weekend trip to Greenville was stepping into the O-CHA tea bar and meeting Mally, the owner. If you don't have a favorite tea, put yourself in her hands for a recommendation. She will not disappoint! And guys, her signature mug has a handle that any guy would love to get his entire... More

A group of old friends and I stopped here after walking through the park. It was clean and a perfect place for us to sit. There were 6 of us and we comfortably sat on the sofa and surrounding chairs. It had something for everyone!! I highly recommend the almond bubble tea. It was DELICIOUS and very sweet. I prefer... More

Growing up in Cambodia and spending a year in China, I have grown to love several Asian specialties. Bubble milk tea is one of my favorites, and finding an authentic drink here in the States can be a challenge. O-CHA was perfect! The ingredients of tea, milk, and a variety of flavorings, completed by the pearls at the bottom and... More

Went there with my husband and another couple. I had a strawberry "milk" tea and my husband a vanilla "milk" tea. The girl behind the counter was very rude, she didn't feel comfortable answering questions. I asked her if the flavor came from syrups or if they were infused in the tea and she told me they are syrups and... More

I am very sorry to hear that your experience was not what you expected. We are training a new employee and it's very unfortunate that management was not at the register with her when you were ordering, to explain a little clearer. We sell Bubble Teas, traditional Taiwanese flavored iced teas and pride ourselves in using high quality products and... More

The beverage was very good as it was a cool day outside and it did help to warm my hands. Ha! The tea was just as I had thought that it was going to be. Every good. On the other hand there was no one in the store but me and the service was quite slow. I would however go... More

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

It's a great spot. Try a mango juice tea with jellies, it's always delicious. they'll make your tea sweetened with sugar, agave, honey - they have a lot of options! You should try this tea at least once and enjoy it as you walk around the park.
