Norfolk, VA: Tealux Cafe serves fresher boba tea prepared using jasmine.

In addition, Tealux Cafe has an expanding menu of milk teas. Some popular options include Tealux signature milk tea, brown sugar fresh milk, oat brown sugar fresh milk, and Thai tea. Like fruit-infused teas, the cafe ensures each cup is prepared using high-quality ingredients, from milk and sugar to fruits.
The restaurant allows the customers to further personalize their boba tea by choosing their preferred sweetness level and toppings. Some traditional toppings available are magical boba, brown sugar tapioca pearls, pineapple jerry, passion fruit boba, and cake cream (among others). The restaurant also offers premium toppings, namely milk cream and cheese cream.
Besides the signature bubble teas, the restaurant offers freshly prepared smoothies. Customers looking for an option with an earthy and starchy texture but with a mild nutty taste can buy the taro smoothie. Alternatively, they can order a matcha smoothie, coconut smoothie, mango smoothie, strawberry smoothie, or cookies n’ cream smoothie.

Speaking about their dining experience, one guest noted: “Aesthetic boba tea cafe with some Vietnamese food! Service was good, the drinks were delicious, and the cafe was clean. I had also ordered cha gio (spring rolls) to go, lettuce was even included, and the nice lady suggested that I don’t close the lid yet because they were still hot and would get mushy otherwise….”
