A create-your-own option is also available, including toppings like honey and agar (crystal) boba.

Redstraw is off to a strong start with a current Yelp rating of five stars out of 11 reviews.

Yelper Nami C., who reviewed the tea establishment on Oct. 15, wrote, "Good quality organic teas and great, friendly service! It's so amazing how they brew the fresh teas right in front of you, so everything is made-to-order. Also, they have custom teas!"

"Delicious tea," said Yelper Hana H. "Usually with milk teas everything is sugary and doesn't taste like tea, but this boba blew me away with their tea choices and flavors. Will come back again!"

Redstraw is open from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.

Eric D., who was one of the first reviewers to visit Noble Tea on Oct. 14, wrote, "Not bad. Different from other boba places because you order off a screen. I like that and hate that at the same time."

"I found the drinks here to be pretty good," shared Yelper Kenny T. "You won't find any real fancy concoctions, but all of the normal boba tea staples are just that and will meet your boba tea needs."

Noble Tea is open from noon-12:30 a.m. on Sunday-Thursday and noon-1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
