Asha Tea House : Berkeley, CA
I've been to Asha Tea House several times before, and it's a great spot to do some studying or catch up with friends. The tea here is the real deal, so don't expect any fru-fru drinks. The drinks are more on the bland/bitter side, which sounds like a bad thing, but once you get used to it, you appreciate the flavor of the actual tea, not the sugar. Honestly, I do wish they made their milk teas a little bit sweeter. When I first ordered their Matcha Milk Tea, it was a bit intense. The bitterness was overpowering, but the more I drank it, the less bitter it became. Their Hong Kong Milk Tea is their most popular and the sweetest out of all the other teas since it has condensed milk. Definitely give it a try if you're located close to UCLA.
