I happened upon a locally owned and operated boba tea house this week. Tower Tea is a cute and convenient tea shop located at 1020 E. McKinley just off N Van Ness Ave and rigt across the street from Fresno City College. While they specialized in boba tea when they first opened last year the menu has grown to include a host of speciality teas and coffees hot, cold, or blended.
My personal favorite is the Mango Tango specialty tea but the house Peach Perfection is a close second. There are a ton of Asian selections and appetizers and they even offer latin staple churros for something sweet. I had the Salmon Teriyaki for dinner tonight and it was very tastey. I’d order it again for sure. Next time I’m going to try the Fried Rice with Shrimp.
If you are studying or bumming around FCC, or hanging out in north Tower District, you should put Tower Tea on your radar. They have free wi-fi and plenty of drink and food options that will give you a respite from the Valley heat. Keep and ear out as well for news and information on their expansion. Tower Tea will be adding more space in September as they evolve into a more formal restaurant and eatery.
You can check out their new website after the jump.
