6 Best Boba Tea Spots For College Students In Hawaii, Ranked By Current Students And Alumni

Amidst this pandemic and with classes starting up again, students will probably want to cool down and have a break with some boba drinks! Being an incoming college freshman, myself, I wanted to ask current and alumni students from Hawaii, "What are your top five must-try boba places?"

There are MANY more delicious and aesthetic boba places out there in Hawaii and I would not be able to rest easy if I left these ones out! So, honorable mention goes to a couple of bonus boba places locals are raving about: Shaka Shaka Tea Express, Fortune Tea, and finally, Mr. Tea!

I cannot wait to hit up these places with my friends when the semester starts!

All of these places above offer takeout and some have delivery services for a customer's convenience. And of course with COVID-19 still around, keeping your distance when going out and staying healthy is what matters most.

Stay safe and happy boba drinking to all! Here are the rankings:

1. Hana Tea


Hana Tea is located on 1111 Dilingham Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii (about five miles from UH Manoa). They are known for their brown sugar milk tea, and one alumni student from Manoa says that "their brûléed cheese foam is amazing!" This boba spot is placed at the top, being popular with the college students and is inexpensive too!

2. CowCow's Tea


Cowcow's Tea is next! One of the favorites here is the Purple Rice Yogurt drink that is modeled for you in the picture above (bottom right). This sweet-treat boba place is both aesthetically pleasing and refreshing. You can find out more info about Cowcow's through their Instagram page!

3. Wen's Tea


Wen's Tea has multiple locations all over the island of Oahu, one being located by Ala Moana Shopping Center. Their drinks are also refreshing, affordable, and like the other boba shops listed, Instagram worthy!

4. Teapresso Bar


Teapresso Bar ranks fourth! They have many locations as well, across the Hawaiian islands and even in other states, like Texas and Washington. Teapresso Bar is famous for their bubble drinks, but they also have a wide assortment of organic coffees, ready to jump start your week!

5. Cheese Tea AND Rabbit Rabbit Tea Hawaii

Ranking at number five...we have a tie! Many students have these two boba spots in their top five, with both different and interesting flavors to choose from. Cheese Tea is a cute, cat-themed cafe that makes homemade cheese caps for cheese teas! And Rabbit Rabbit Tea, being rabbit themed, has a variety of refreshing and/or sweet drinks to try.

BONUS: Shaka Shaka, Fortune Tea, and Mr. Tea

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
