Thirs-tea for boba?

Move over Tea Rex, there’s a new boba place in town, and it’s getting plenty of attention. On a sunny, weekend afternoon, ThirsTea is students’ new go-to drink spot. This boba restaurant is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. through 9 p.m., Friday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays 11 a.m. to 8 p.m..
Hearing all the raves from students about this place, I had to try it myself. ThirsTea is located on 6585 Commerce Blvd in Rohnert Park.
It’s a relatively small space and has free WiFi which is good for students that want a peaceful place to study. There are quite a few seats, lots of big windows that let sun in and friendly workers that greet you as you walk in.
Bamboo plants and orchids sit around the room giving the restaurant an Asian-inspired vibe, and the pop music playing in the background showed that this place is hip and caters to the younger crowd.
Customers order at the counter while looking at the options overhead on the menu board.  
I ordered the coconut milk tea with boba and a friend ordered the honeydew milk tea with boba, both were very good and sweet and were ready with little waiting time. Both were $2.95 for regulars, but one can upgrade to larges if they wish for a dollar more.
The ThirsTea menu has a wide variety of treats if milk tea just isn’t your thing. Drink options include iced tea and coffee, flavored milk tea, slush or fruit tea, and extra toppings you can add to anything like aloe vera and different kinds of jelly and boba.
I was happily surprised to find other interesting items on the menu. Shaved snow (coming soon), sandwiches, and other “bites” are sold as well. This includes a special called a Pandan Waffle, a Vietnamese specialty, that is a coconut battered waffle with coconut shavings.    
Although the space was a bit small and sparse, the interesting menu, good price and friendly employees made me wish to come back again.
If one wants a nice, cold treat for the warmer weather, or to branch out from their usual Starbucks frapp, ThirsTea is way to go.
