Before I got married, I made my list of things to do in the Bay Area before the end of the year. Boba was a big priority, knowing very well that it'd be hard to find in Birmingham. When Lance visited me in California for Thanksgiving, we were exploring the mission when we came across Boba Guys! I'd been wanting to try Boba Guys for a looooooong time, and it was on my list, so I was so excited/happy/overjoyed to try it. Lance had the horchata with boba, and I had the slow milk lychee green tea from the with almond jelly and boba. Oh how yummy it was. Oh man. But "yummy" doesn't even really measure up to its tastiness. The teas are sooooo well made and the boba has a subtle flavor that's just sooooooo good.
Lance and I drank a lot of boba when he visited, but Boba Guys really is hands-down the best boba and milk tea I've ever had. When I was getting my dress fittings I realized another Boba Guys location was along my bus route from the bridal store back to bart. So every week for three weeks after my fittings I got some boba at the Stockton location. As wedding planning and work got crazy I didn't get a chance to go again. And sadly, I think those were the last times I had boba before I left.
In preparation of my move, Lance found a Chinese market for us to shop at. We just went last night and discovered we could buy boba and milk tea ingredients! I'm so excited to do some experimenting to make us some boba drinks at home. woot.
