Kung Fu Tea Longan Tea: This herbal fruit tea has a familiar flavor to those who are accustomed to eating the Asian fruit, but even at 50% sweetness, it was far too sweet. 2.0/5.0

Mr. Wish Special Fruit Tea: Mr. Wish is an Asian drink chain that serves fruit teas and slushies. I ordered their special fruit tea, which had a substantial amount of diced fruit, including passion fruit seeds, apples, and mango. The drink itself was far too sweet, and the fruit was overly acidic and sour. However, I will say that the avocado slush my partner ordered was excellent, so I would come back again for a different drink. 2.0/5.0

Japonaise Bakery Green Tea Cake: Located on Beacon Street in Brookline, this small bakery has an assortment of pastries as well as packaged Japanese snacks. Their green tea cake is multi-layered, with green tea creme and a layer of gelatin on top. While the matcha flavor was not bad, the cake was a bit dry, and the gelatin was largely for texture (it didn't have much flavor). It looked better than it tasted. 3.0/5.0

Happy Lemon Lemon Jasmine tea with boba: I revisited the Boston location of Happy Lemon to try a citrus-based drink this time around and purchased this beverage at 50% sweetness. The boba texture was very good – firm but still chewy. Much better than other boba options in Boston. The drink itself was highly acidic, which was refreshing but masked any of the flavor from the jasmine tea. Still, a very solid drink. 3.5/5.0

Jia Duo Bao Herbal Tea: This brand of herbal tea seems to have dropped its iconic red bottle for a new golden one. Nonetheless, the flavor is exactly the same: more sweet than herbal but with a refreshing honey flavor. 2.5/5.0

Kung Fu Tea Lychee tea with boba and lychee jelly: Purchased from the Kung Fu Tea in Edison, NJ, this tea drink was far too sweet despite specifying 25% sweetness. The boba was also disappointingly soft. The jelly, though, had a decently firm bite. It's too bad there is so much variability with drinks from this chain. 2.0/5.0
