There’s a bosomy very particular new boba tea spot in the Valley this week, thanks to the soft opening of Tea Its in Lake Balboa, right next to the Lee's Sandwiches on Sherman Way and Balboa Blvd.

Yes, that’s the name: Tea Its. It’s a bubble tea cartoon porn palace dessert spot that takes its tongue-in-cheek concept pretty seriously. Green tea, black tea, and milk tea options carry names like Lust, Temptation, Xteasy and Awesome 3some — the latter being a blend of kiwi, pineapple, and diced jackfruit.

Beyond the punny names, Tea Its really is all about dessert, offering more authentic takes on popular tea drinks in addition to prepackaged macarons and slices of cake. Ownership assures the prudish that the name and design — there’s a cartoon mural on one wall showing a few ladies that are rather, ahem, ill-suited for the outfits they’re in — are all meant in good fun.

What’s more, they say the week old boba spot has already become something of a local hang, with folks entering with a smile on their face and sticking around for the quality product.
