Currently one of the top trending boba bars in the Pasadena area, Labobatory is known for its unique, tasty teas. Its inventive offerings go a step beyond the traditional milk tea concept.
Labobatory’s version of the Harry Potter–inspired butter beer, Better Beer, is a nonalcoholic butterscotch fizz. The Horchata Boba brings in the flavors of cinnamon goodness and spice for a perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Purple Dream (named for its signature purple hue) is made with Fosselman’s sweet ube (purple yam) ice cream. Not a fan of sugar highs? No sweat; drinks can be customized to your preference with varying sweetness levels, as well as with add-ons like butterscotch cream and jellies.
For a delicious way to keep the common cold away, order a beverage that’s actually good for you—like Labobatory’s medicinal Cough Syrup Green Tea, made with traditional Chinese herbal syrup.
