1. Teavana

If you’re looking for a more traditional style of brew maybe try the local Teavana. Minutes away, located in the Cerritos Mall. Take a trip and indulge in many different teas and blends. Mix and match with the wall of teas and maybe for the thrill seekers add some matcha (condensed green tea) to energize your day.

Recommended: Scarlet Jasmine tea.

Cha2o located fairly close to school in the city of Artisia. Great for a late night drink and snack since it’s open until 2am. Photo credit: Ariel Jimenez

2. Cha2o

If you’re feeling more adventurous take a swing at all the funky blends at Cha2o. From mango star jelly to basil seeds, the baristas kick it up a notch with different takes on tea and juices. But no rush they have a dining area with delicious food that anyone on a college budget would enjoy.

Recommended: Pom-pom peach tea + bacon fried rice

Make a day of it, this is the perfect place for you and that special someone. Old Town Pasadena houses a small tea spot with big flavor.
