Two years ago my family and I went down to LA for my aunt’s wedding. Before the rehearsal dinner we went to the Old Trappers Lodge, visited by great Tia on my mom’s side, and then wanted to get a cool drink. I had wanted to stop by a tea place and suggested this one I had seen online, Bon Bon Tea House in Northridge, CA.
Bon Bon Tea House’s website isn’t connecting but I was able to see on their Facebook page that they are a Boba Tea House that has been operating since 2014.
They have a ton of different boba tea options; along with smoothies, tea lattes, coffees, etc.
I of course ordered a matcha boba tea, no boba (as I have said before I don’t care for tapioca).
It was delicious and has a cute little outside area you can sit in while you enjoy your drink. I definitely recommend if you are in Northridge.
My friend transferred to Chico State for school and after she graduated she ended up staying in Chico for several years. I would go visit her from time to time, and once when I went she decided to take me to the Tea Bar and Fusion Café. I LOVED it! From that time on, whenever I am in Chico I have to stop there and get tea or food.
The Tea Bar and Fusion Café first opened in Chico in 2004, down by the college and high school. They later opened another smaller location close to the Chico mall. A couple years ago they launched a third location in Sacramento, CA; (although I’ve heard the service is not as good there.)
The Tea Bar has an extensive tea menu, you can order Kombucha, hot tea (various ones), frosted tea lattes, blended tea sorbets, iced teas, sparkling teas, and hot tea lattes. I’ve had most of the items off their menu and everything has been absolutely delicious.
My absolute favorite (besides A pot of Earl Grey) is their Matcha Mint Frost (Matcha green tea mixed with ice cream and topped with fresh mint.) It is so delicious that I dream of it sometimes. I have tried to recreate it, but I can never quite get it as good as theirs.
Even now I can’t wait until it is warm enough to go purchase one.
With their lattes I love the Matcha Sin, Chai Tea, and the Honey Lavender. They are all so good!
Their food menu is small but everything on it is so good. You can order snacks like hummus and naan, edamame, etc or you can get a build your own bowl/wrap. With the build your own you have the option of a bowl or a wrap; choice of meat, greens, rice, and dressing. My favorite is the bowl with Cracked Pepper London Broil, Romaine Leaves, and creamy teriyaki sauce.
This place is so good that if you happen to be in Chico, I urge you to stop by. The food is healthy and delicious, the tea amazing, and it is a fun place to be with a nice atmosphere.
