nonsmoothie nonmilk bubble tea in northern VA?
I used to go to tea houses in college that would make bubble tea - not just milk-based and smoothie-style- but also iced tea with flavoring or even hot tea with flavoring. I've been trying to search for boba, but it seems that all the places use the milk tea powders and not actual tea. Does anyone know of a tea house in Northern VA (preferably near Fairfax) that does bubble tea, or any other place that has the option?
A&J in Annandale has a limited number of flavors, mostly fruit, without milk. Their bubbles are of much better than average quality, being neither oversoft nor too tough. I think they do not use powders.
In addition, there is a new bubble tea shop in the Eden Center with a huge variety of flavors. It is in the corner near the fountain. They had quite a few tea variations.
