I'll be in the SF area for the first time for just a weekend and I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to get a good taro boba tea? :)

      Neither have taro, but Boba Guys and Fifty / Fifty both have good boba tea - they use real milk as opposed to powder. Not traditional though - the selection of flavors is limited.

        i was disappointed in boba guys; i get that their ingredients are top-notch, but the long lines and high prices did not justify the end result

          Yea, I agree with you actually. It's also weird how they only have whole milk. But from purely a taste perspective, I thought it was pretty good.
