SO I took a leap of faith after seeing this here and was pleasantly suprised by Fat Straws! They actually have a decent selection of loose leaf teas lining the wall and the pearls in their drinks were fairly good too! Very good service, sweet girls behind the counter. For a Bubble Tea place in a little strip mall I say this is worth a visit. The overall atmosphere is cute, a little bare for my tastes, but nice none the less. The Vanilla Truffle Berry bubble tea I had was very good! --I'm putting 'good' for food offered for star rating purposes. There is no food served at this establishment.
Oh Riva, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! This review is just a rehashing of the others available here. It's a fantastic little shop tucked away in a most unexpected place in Pflugerville (but you know what they say about hole in the walls). Gorgeous Asian artistry and amaaaaazing Asian food, Riva collects someof the best food around! Her herbal blends can't be beat (she makes them herself)! I HIGHLY recommend her Passion blend and the Pilot's Friend. She uses just the right amount of Stevia leaf and Rosemary in her blends to create a truly unique cuppa! P.S. Have the Kung Fu/Gong Fu Tea Ceremony. You won't regret it!
What a shame this doesn't have more reviews! As a tea fanatic let me ASSURE you that if you're looking for a cuppa this place will rock your socks off!!! The co-owners are a blast (willing to let ya talk their ears off) and a half and the tea selection is DIVINE. Try the french butter cookies of yum too... I adore the Lune tea personally. 'tis a cup for of joy! A hopping, cool atmosphere with lovely couches to aide in your lazing about. Only detriment is I wish there was real food sammiches and such so I wouldn't ever have to leave!
