  • - Chris Lam

  • and Megan Lee.

  • Boba tea.

  • What's up guys, I'm Megan.

  • - And I'm Chris.

  • And we're gonna be trying out a lot of boba places today.

  • So, we're gonna tell you guys which one is the best one.

  • We specifically chose boba chains so that way

  • most people would know about them

  • and actually be able to go try them.

  • - We're sacrificing our stomachs solely for boba.

  • - Yeah.

  • - So we can tell you how we truly feel about them.

  • - We're taking on this very difficult task for you.

  • - Yes.

  • - Okay, so Megan, what should our rubric be?

  • - Tea quality.

  • - Yes, tea quality.

  • Tapioca game.

  • - Tapioca, so important.

  • Three, sugar level.

  • - Okay, so our first one is Ten Ren.

  • - Are you ready?

  • - I'm so ready.

  • - And we got our boba milk tea.

  • Just plain.

  • - Yeah. - Nothing added.

  • - We're keeping it plain so that way

  • it stays consistent across everybody.

  • No adjustments.

  • Cheers.

  • Tea quality, I'm gonna give a five.

  • - I give a five out of five too.

  • - You were also mentioning how you like the fact that

  • they were taking their time making the tea.

  • - You can just taste the tea.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And the tapioca game?

  • - A five.

  • I like it. - Really?

  • - I like it.

  • It's easier on the jaw.

  • Sugar level?

  • I give it a four.

  • I like sweet stuff but

  • I would cut it down a little bit.

  • So, how was your first boba tasting experience,

  • Chris Lam?

  • - You were there!

  • - Where are we going to now?

  • - Lollicup.

  • - Lollicup.

  • - Cheers

  • - It kinda tastes like chocolate.

  • Is it me?

  • - No, it does taste like chocolate.

  • - Tastes very powdery.

  • - Tea rating?

  • I'm gonna be really harsh and give a two.

  • - I was actually thinking the same thing.

  • The boba is,

  • give it a three point five.

  • - But the texture and the give to it,

  • it's how I like it.

  • It's not too sweet but it's like a really weird sweet.

  • So, that's why I'm giving it a two.

  • - Yeah.

  • - I don't even know how to rate the sweetness,

  • 'cause the tea is still throwing me off.

  • - How long does it take to steep Chinese tea?

  • - Oolong time.

  • - I get it.

  • Let's hope that Coco gives

  • milk tea boba some redemption.

  • Fun side note,

  • this is actually Brandon's favorite.

  • - If this is bad,

  • it's your fault. - This is all on you Brandon.

  • Oh, interesting, ohh.

  • I kinda taste a little caramel.

  • For the tea?

  • I give it a four.

  • - Tapioca game?

  • I'm going to give it a three point 5.

  • - You'll see me struggling to get boba out.

  • There was like a clump of boba in there.

  • - Actually, you're right.

  • It kind of ups the sweet a lot,

  • so yeah I give it a three.

  • - So Megan,

  • is the boba starting to weigh you down?

  • - Weigh me down?

  • No, never!

  • How about you Chris?

  • How do you feel?

  • - It's weighing me down a little bit, to be honest.

  • We're going to Quickly's.

  • They're probably like one of the most international places.

  • - Quickly's, let's do this.

  • - Okay, kind of tastes like a worse version of Lollicup.

  • - I got no comment.

  • - I'm gonna give it a two.

  • - I also give it a two.

  • What is this?!

  • - Shh!

  • They're right there!

  • Tapioca game?

  • I'm gonna give it a one.

  • It has like a really bad after taste.

  • - To be honest, it doesn't even taste like tapioca.

  • I feel like I'm eating plastic.

  • Sugar level, I give it a three.

  • It's not too sweet.

  • - This is actually like around the level

  • that I actually like it.

  • With all of our criticism, this is good for 1.50.

  • - I still choose Ten Ren.

  • - We're down to our last one,

  • and it's Sharetea.

  • - It all comes down to this last boba shop.

  • - The Final Showdown.

  • - I'm starting to feel a little sleepy now.

  • - Me too.

  • I'm starting to get

  • a 'boma'.

  • - I'm excited for this last place.

  • What is it called?

  • - Sharetea.

  • - Sharetea.

  • Last one, last one. - Last one.

  • - Make it count.

  • Tea quality?

  • I'm going to give it a five, actually.

  • It feels even for me.

  • When I think of milk tea,

  • this is actually the kind of flavor that I think of.

  • Tapioca game?

  • It feels very undercooked.

  • - It felt really dry in the inside.

  • I see what you mean,

  • so, yeah, I give it a three.

  • - I do get flavor from the tapioca itself, though.

  • - Five on the sugar level.

  • It's not too sweet,

  • not too little.

  • - Yeah, I think Ten Ren is the winner.

  • - Yeah, so we figured it out.

  • If you are trying boba for the first time,

  • and if you don't like it, don't write it off

  • and think that you won't like

  • any other boba ever again because

  • I think what both me and Megan learned today is that

  • boba is a lot more diverse and different

  • than we thought it was.

  • - Thank you so much Chris, for having me today.

  • Thank you so much for inviting,

  • you didn't invite me.

  • We just wanted to say that we feel really sick right now.

  • - I'm going to throw up.

  • - We were joking back then,

  • but we actually sacrificed for you.

  • - Sacrificed our stomachs.

  • - You're welcome.

  • You are very welcome.

- Chris Lam
