Bubble tea heads, rejoice! There’s a new Taiwanese tea spot on the radar called Rewts, which is particularly exciting for nearby USC students. Despite the off-putting spelling of the name, Rewts has managed to overcome such challenges and quietly drop into the University Park neighborhood just south of the 10 on Hoover, between 23rd and 24th streets. The casual shop brings with it a sort of new-wave sensibility to boba that's not often seen.
Milk tea servers at Rewts are even called baristas, doling out classic Taiwanese bubble tea (the tapioca balls are organic, naturally), green tea and more. Decor is sleek and wood-lined, with the occasional potted plant to spruce the place up. Built-in padded seating and movable tables make for a multi-functional study space, while the bar area holds self-charging stations for cell phones and other devices.
It’s all part of the recent onslaught of boba houses around Los Angeles, intent on elevating the overall experience for the next generation of milk tea drinkers. Rewts is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
