Hello Prima Cafe!

Hello Prima Cafe!

Hello Kitty Foodie always sippin’ bubble tea! It’s no secret that I love boba and I also love discovering new bubble places! I am thus so happy that I was able to visit the new Prima Cafe that just opened up in Lomita, California.

Prima Cafe has an amazing line up of coffees, brewed teas, flavored iced teas and milk teas. They also have macarons and cookies to pair with your favorite drink! Yum!

I love how this South Bay cafe has drink names that represent the South Bay! You can find “The Peninsula”, “The Golden Cove” and even “PCH” on their menu! Being a South Bay native; I love the nod to the local places.

The other thing that I love about this place is how they have such tasty and unique combos and flavors. My current favorite is their White Rabbit! Yes! White Rabbit named just like the original milky sweet candy from China. The White Rabbit consists of White Peach, Lychee, and Kumquat infused with Jasmine Green Tea and paired with Lychee Jelly.

⁣I love the pairing of the different flavors! Peach is one of my all time favorite flavors and this just had the right peachy hint! I also really enjoyed the lychee and lychee jelly! Last but not least; I liked the citrus flavor that the kumquat gave. It is so refreshing for Spring days!

I’m always happy to be “Sippin’ bubble tea” and so even happier to see a new place in the South Bay!

Hello Boba @ Home!

Hello Boba @ Home!

I am a big fan of boba. I love enjoying a bubble tea with my family and friends and trying out the different flavors of tea and coffee with the chewy tapioca pearls. With LA County still having a Safer at Home order however; trips to the boba shop are a bit more sparse. Thankfully though I can still get my boba fix via C Tea Shop’s Boba Kits!

I first discovered C Tea Shop when they partnered with my one of my favorite IG boba buddies; Bitsy Boba. Bitsy Boba along with with So Cali Boba and C Tea Shop came together for one of Bitsy Boba’s 12 Day of Boba Giveaways. I was one of the lucky winners of Day 8 and the prize pack included C Tea Shop’s Original Boba Kit and 2 of Bitsy Boba’s heart straws.

Being a boba lover; I was so happy to receive this box of happiness! Inside the boba kit was Tapioca Boba package, Coconut Milk Tea Powder, Taro Milk Tea Powder, Vanilla Milk Tea Powder and Black Milk Tea Powder.⁣

I was soon off to making boba at home. The process was fun and quite easy! In a nutshell in consisted of adding tapioca to boiling water, mixing in brown sugar or honey with tapioca and then blending the flavor mixtures with milk. In less than 25 minutes I had myself a lovely and refreshing boba treat right at home.

My favorite boba creation was the Taro Boba Tea. Taro is one of my go-to boba flavors and so I was super excited to try this flavor at home. C Tea Shop definitely did not disappoint with their taro flavor and their boba balls. The taro itself had a nice sweet and nutty flavor. The boba was chewy and soft. Together; the taro tea and boba came together for the perfect drink at home. The drink was very much comparable to some of my favorite boba drinks that I’ve had at some of the local cafes.

Another boba creation I enjoyed was the Coconut Boba Tea! Ooh I was such a fan of this. It gave me the all the tropical feels and made me feel like I was at a beach in Hawaii.

It’s so exciting to be my own Bobarista. I can’t believe how quick and easy it was to make my favorite boba drinks at the comfort of my home. I am super excited to be making more boba drinks in the comfort of my own kitchen. C Tea Shop’s boba kits have so many different flavors. My first kit had four flavors but there’s actually plenty more that C Tea Shop has to offers There’s Almond, Black Tea, Black Rose, Coconut, Thai, Taro and Matcha.

I also really loved using the cute and colorful boba straws from Bitsy Boba! The reusable boba straws add a bit more fun and color to the drink! They’re perfect for drinking these tasty drinks.
