Boba Tea Float?

Is there any place that serves a "Boba Tea Float"?

In other words, a scoop of ice cream (or frozen yogurt) in a tall glass of boba tea?

There must be a place that serves both ice cream or yogurt (not shaved ice) as well as boba tea, right? It just escapes me right now.

        Well, I think I did myself one better.

        Got a Boba Tea at Tea Zone, then went down the street to Fosselman's for a scoop of French Vanilla Bean ice cream, and then just dumped it into my boba. Good eating.

        Half the people were staring at me in sheer puzzlement; the other half in utter jealousy.

          Self-constructing your Chow from x+1 sources... You've stumbled upon my secret, I see. It's the logical next step in the evolution of the Chowhound.

          Use the taro ice cream next time.

            Yes, thanks.

            And of course there's Half & Half as well.

            Probably a few others that my aging, dull mind cannot recall now.

              No need to feel dulled in trying to remember the sheer overload of which boba joint has what. It''s not like it's easy to keep track, and getting tougher all the time.

              What exactly is the total number of boba/tea houses in the SGV now? I can't keep up.

        2. Can't confirm that it's on the menu but Cafe 70 Degrees in Culver City has an extensive Boba menu.


          It used to be an ice cream place, too, but a phone call might provide a direct answer.

          1. Pretty sure this doesn't meet your criteria, so I'm just throwing it out there for info: Flour + Tea in Pasadena has something called a "Frostea". It's essentially milk teas, etc., that are basically tea Frappuccinos. My favorite so far is their Thai Tea Frostea (with light sugar). Maybe it will scratch the OPs itch?

            1. I've seen this on the menu at Tasty to Go in Arcadia, but have never tried it.
