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

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
