That’s the Tea at SheBoba’s

Any time during the year, it is always a blessing to have a spot you could always go to. For many people that spot might be Ripon Coffee House, but now there’s a new spot for people to have a drink and chill out.

 SheBoba’s is a new boba tea shop. It opened in January and the location is near  City Hall. SheBoba’s has been drawing in boba lovers ever since. Before this place opened, people of Ripon had to go to either Manteca or Modesto for the nearest boba tea shop, but now it’s just a few minutes away from downtown. 

“The best part about my job is definitely the people that I get to interact with every day, […] There’s also slushies, teas, and ice cream,” said Junior Kelly Nguyen.

Instead of driving to Tea Time Boba Cafe in Manteca, Ripon High students have SheBoba’s that has become their new favorite boba shop. 

“It’s a nice place to hang out since they are really modern inside, so it’s cute and trendy. […] I always get the peach mango tea and the tapioca boba, and it’s really good since it is not too sweet and actually tastes like tea,” said Jaylynn Fisher, a senior.

The boba shop has brought more diversity to Ripon since it brings Taiwanese tea to the small town. The boba place has certainly attracted a lot of high schooler’s attention because of its uniqueness. As the city of Ripon continues to grow, new restaurants and stores have opened, creating new hangout spots for teenagers and families. 

“SheBoba’s is a good addition to Ripon because we don’t have a boba place around, and it adds a new option for people who want to try boba,” said Sophomore Zoe Bremer
