Yaaas Tea, which first began serving customers in 2018, is now opening at its highly anticipated Patchogue location on Thursday, July 13.
Bubble Tea Shop at 38 South Ocean Drive (Twice Voted Best Bubble Tea) Best Bethpage on Long Island In its first few days of opening, Awards) has already cemented itself as one of the best sweet spots in the village.
“Yaaas Tea makes fresh boba every hour. Anyone can sell boba tea with some battered boba. That will never happen at Yaaas Tea,” wrote Long Island-based Yelp reviewer Bill S.
He visited the Patchogue store and spoke to the owner, who told him that Yaaas Tea only uses freshly made coconut milk in the store.
“Just one sip and I can tell the difference, this is a premium ingredient used in any Yaaas tea.”
Apart from classics such as milk tea and taro milk tea, the cafe also offers flavor-packed specialty drinks such as their signature brown sugar BOBO, which is a traditional brown sugar boba drink with sea salt cream foam.
For those looking to fuel up alongside their bubble tea, Yaaas has created a variety of espresso-based drinks such as the Iced Creme Brulee BOBO, which combines brown sugar bubble tea with espresso, milk, caramel and sea salt cream.
Those who aren’t thirsty can still satisfy their sweet tooth with desserts like white chocolate chip cookies or tin cakes in assorted flavors.
Bill wrote: “[T]The baked goods heir is slain! “
“Their biscuits are crispy (my favourite) and they make unique cakes.”
Other reviewers on Facebook praised the store for its quick service, freshness, and delicious concoctions.
“Absolutely the best bubble tea, my new addiction,” wrote Facebook user Joann Blum in a review of another Yaaas Tea location.
Although Joann writes that she drives “about 20 minutes to get there and 20 minutes back,” she says the drinks are “well worth the trip!”
Yaaas Tea is open daily from 12 noon to 8 p.m. and plans to open four more locations on Long Island.
