Looking to get your milk tea fix? HI Now host Kanoe Gibson is at Teapresso Bar with founder and CEO Steve Nguyen. He’s teaching her how to make their special Honeydew Milk Tea!
Teapresso Bar offers fresh brewed-to-order organic boba drinks along with a wide array of coffee drinks. When it comes to milk tea, there’s no shortage of options! Teapresso Bar’s menu boasts 20 different signature milk teas along with 10 classic milk teas. You can also choose from a variety of coffee drinks, slushes, frappes, smoothies, and organic lemonades.
To create their Honeydrew Milk Tea, Teapresso Bar uses a dark roasted oolong tea along with a choice of organic milk. They also pride themselves on using natural, local ingredients instead of powders and artificial flavors. With that in mind, Nguyen says they use a honeydew jam to give the milk tea its flavor.
There are over 15 toppings to choose from at Teapresso Bar, and over 5,000 ways to customize your drink. Some toppings include bursting boba, jellies, or even crystal boba, a healthy option made from a seaweed base.
In addition to their full menu, you can also try an exclusive HI Now drink at any Teapresso Bar across the state! HI Now hosts Jobeth Devera and Kanoe Gibson, along with executive producer Chimaine Pouteau, created their own specialty drinks. The exclusive concoctions include Jobeth’s “Jojo Taro Coco,” Kanoe’s “K-Presso,” and Chimaine’s “Chi-Mango Passion.” Part of the proceeds from these drinks will go to help various nonprofit organizations, including the Hawaiian Humane Society, Susan G. Komen and the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii.
