TeaStori Tampa is a boba tea shop, dessert cafe and mochi ice cream bar located at 2732 E Fowler Avenue.
Stop, you had us at mochi ice cream bar. There’s more? Yes. TeaStori Tampa is pouring plenty of boba tea and slinging macarons, in addition to offering a vibrant mochi ice cream. It’s a feast for the eyes (and your Instagram). According to the website, this sweet haven started off as a joke. We’re glad it lived well past the punchline.
Three friends took a passion for tea and translated it into TeaStori. The spot first opened back in 2015 and has garnered a diehard following in Tampa since.
The resplendent menu is a full color palate of sweetness. We can’t hide our love for mochi. Bobacup’s flavors include: black honey walnut, passion fruit, Belgian chocolate, salted caramel, azuki red bean and mandarin orange cream. They’re cool, they’re refreshing and they are, in our humble opinion, the ultimate warm weather snack.
Personally, the pumpkin and cookies mochi is our favorite. It tastes like fall and totally compensates for the lack of foliage in Tampa.
If you’re interested in something a little more decadent, grab a dark chocolate or espresso macaron. The next macaron on our list to try: caramel fleur de sel.
Of course, these treats are the perfect complements Bobacup’s list of signature drinks. Treat yourself to a tiramisu milk tea, or a super soothing Tokyo honey milk tea.
Though, nothing at all compares to the unicorn drink, a brilliant ube milkshake. The purple coloration is so transfixing you might wind up ordering one to admire and another to drink.
The cafe also serves fruit snows, ice cream FloaTeas and loose leaf teas.
If you’re one the hunt for a new hangout or place to properly start your day, look no further than Bobacup.
