Tea n Bowl
211 W. McMillan St., Clifton Heights
Tea n Bowl is a bearcat favorite, if you go to UC you either know or will know this place by graduation time. Students and Cliftonites alike go crazy over Tea n Bowl’s famous bubble tea. Bubble tea is tea and flavorings poured over tapioca balls or “bubbles,” to create a delicious and fun Taiwanese drink. The tea is not their only specialty as they are serving up authentic, as well as Americanized-Chinese food.
