BobaBucha Cafe

My husband and I wanted a quiet spot to relax, sip some tea, and enjoy a little something sweet. BobaBucha Cafe on Capital Hill has all that and more. They've only been open a few months and I'd been wanting to visit. Their drinks and desserts looked too good to pass up.

We were lucky enough to chat with the owner, Linda, about her homemade teas and baked goods. She's originally from Singapore and she sells hot food that is Singaporean- inspired, in case you're craving something savory. Like the name suggests, there is also house-brewed Kombucha. This drink is produced by fermenting sweet tea with a culture of yeast and bacteria. There's many health benefits to drinking Kombucha because of the probiotics it contains. 

She makes all of the teas in-house with natural ingredients. Want some toppings for your tea? She'll hook you up with as many as you wish. There was a good variety of toppings, too. There's regular boba, popping boba, raspberry jelly, and more. I chose the Seattle Sunrise drink and I added regular boba and raspberry jelly. This drink is her homemade orange and mango yogurt. It tasted really refreshing and I enjoyed the toppings I chose.

Drinking it out of a real glass made it feel decadent, since I'm used to always drinking boba out of plastic cups. They do offer plastic cups and their Corgi logo on them is just too cute. My husband wanted some coffee, and the presentation was gorgeous. I'm not sure of what type of coffee it was, but the glass contained only cream. Then he poured the coffee from the pot provided. He's has this style of coffee before and it seems to elevate the whole experience of getting a cup of coffee.

She's also quite the baker and sells a nice variety of sweets. On the day we visited there was Vegan Cheesecake, Carrot Cake, and fresh Strawberry Tarts. We went with a slice of the Carrot Cake to share. We polished it off quickly because, who wouldn't? There's just something about cake and cream cheese frosting. As I was contemplating buying another dessert, Linda came over and presented us with one of the Strawberry Tarts. It was really nice of her and the dessert was delish. The pastry was nice and flaky, the strawberries were sweet and in season, and there was a vanilla filling that complimented the berries perfectly. 

BobaBucha feels like a fancy tea house you'd find in England. It was peaceful and pretty inside, with an inviting vibe that's relaxing. You could make this place a habit, if you're not careful.
