In central Oahu and need your boba fix? Teapresso Bar just opened its newest location in Wahiawa, and it’s actually the 20th location to open in the state and the 15th store to open on Oahu.
“What makes Teapresso Bar so unique is the experience,” says owner Keoni Ahlo. “Customers are expecting a higher level of quality. They’re looking for non-GMO, organic options. We provide something for everybody here.”
At Teapresso Bar, you’ll find a wide variety of different toppings and 20 teas to choose from — all of which are brewed-to-order. The boba is also made fresh daily — boiled and cooked fresh as often as every hour!
“The combinations are really endless. Strawberry boba, we have crystal boba, we have different gels,” Ahlo says. “We have all different types of things that you can add into your drink, which often complement the kind of tea or milk tea you’re drinking. And it makes a big difference, so you gotta experiment!”
You can also try an exclusive HI Now drink at any Teapresso Bar across the state! HI Now host Kanoe Gibson created her own specialty drink called the “K-Presso,” and part of the proceeds will go to help various nonprofit organizations, including the Hawaiian Humane Society, Susan G. Komen and the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii.
About Teapresso Bar:
Teapresso Bar was founded in 2014 by Steve Nguyen who had a vision of bringing healthier drink alternatives to Hawaii. The first location opened on Bishop Street in downtown Honolulu and has since succeeded in positioning itself as a healthier alternative in the coffee and boba milk tea market. As of January 2019, there are currently 17 locations within the Hawaiian Islands. Also, in collaboration with ABC Stores, Teapresso drinks are served in ABC Stores on Oahu, Maui, Big Island and Kauai.
