145 Hester St.
(b/t Chrystie & Bowery)
New York, NY 10002

This tiny shop in NYC's Chinatown is far from the busy touristy areas of the neighborhood. Teado is a cute shop with a great bubble tea menu, delicious onigiri, and thick toast.

Teado counter

They have a great drink menu with milk tea boba, ice slush, traditional tea, and fruity juices.

I ordered: passion fruit slush

  • Taste: not the best passion fruit flavor, a bit too artificial
  • Boba: Taiwanese style which are smaller than the average boba. Nice soft texture.
  • Price: Teado's only size 16oz for $3.25

Passion Fruit Slush
While this wasn't the best passion fruit slush I've ever had, I still really like how you are able to customize your boba. First you can select from Earl Grey, Osmanthus Oolong, Jasmine Oolong, and Jasmine green teas. You can ask for a stronger or lighter tea flavor, less or more ice, and you can choose your level of sweetness. I definitely recommend Teado for those who like a specific taste for their boba.

I also tried Teado's Onigiri. They are made fresh and come in four flavors. The onigiri were warm, fresh, and delicious, but you only get 3 small pieces for $3.25. I thought this was a little expensive for onigiri, but I guess their cheap bubble tea makes up for it.
