Taiwanese drinks at Tenju
After ingesting a month's worth of meat, broth, and curry rice, the four of us walked around the nearby shopping plazas so that we would not immediately fall into a coma. Once the food coma passed, Jean and I thought it would be a good idea to add some more calories to our diet by getting some dessert drinks. She decided to take me to one of her grad school haunts, Tenju Tea House.
Tenju Tea House is in the 99 Ranch Plaza off of Azusa and Colima. It's hidden inside the Champion Gourmet building as they share a space. We got the strawberry basil lemonade and the lychee Oolong tea to try. Both drinks were good and refreshing. If you want a stronger flavored, tart and sweet drink, definitely give the strawberry basil lemonade a shot. If you want a less pronounced and lighter drink, the lychee Oolong tea is a good fit. I'm glad I got a less sweet drink that day as I was having major food sweats from earlier.
Left: $3.95. Strawberry Basil Lemonade. Right: $4.75. Lychee Oolong. Both drinks were great. The strawberry basil lemonade wasn't too tart or sweet and had a lot of chunks of strawberries inside. The lychee oolong was a bit on the lighter side but was extremely refreshing after the meat festival from earlier. The lychee flavor wasn't too strong and didn't overpower the Oolong tea's flavor. Both drinks are worth trying.
