There are dozens of places around the city beautiful to grab boba from, but there’s one chain that’s taking the world by storm — and it just opened a new location last year in East Orlando. We’re talking about Happy Lemon, and if you’re in the area, you have to check it out!
All About Happy Lemon
Located on University Boulevard in East Orlando is Happy Lemon, a beverage chain renowned for selling a variety of teas. There’s also a location on East Colonial Drive in Colonialtown near the Milk District.
Happy Lemon was founded in 2006 by the Yummy-Town group, which is a tea culture company that originated in Taiwan.
As of 2014, Happy Lemon has become the world’s most recognized and respected tea culture brand. It has more than 2,000 locations across 21 countries, and with flavors as good as theirs, that comes as no surprise.
So what are you waiting for? Try the Happy Lemon specialty, the rock salt cheese tea, which you can do so from noon to 10 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday and noon to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Teas Galore and More
Happy Lemon serves salted cheese, milk tea, fruit tea, blended whole lemon tea, squeezed lemon tea, and classic brewed tea.
Those who don’t fancy tea can fret not when dining at Happy Lemon. You can also order fruit smoothies, yakult, and bubble waffles.
To really spice up the drink experience, you can add a variety of toppings to your drink! Options range from boba and lychee to fresh fruit chunks and salted cheese.
We paired a strawberry milkshake with fresh strawberry chunks, and a mango lemon slushy with a fluffy yet crispy bubble waffle — and the results were outstanding. You’ll find yourself sent to sugary heaven when you taste the sweet treats Happy Lemon has to offer!
From the bright yellow ceilings to the smiling lemons on the top of your drinks, the vibe in this place really puts the “happy” in Happy Lemon!
There’s ample seating, and some tables are cozily tucked toward the back, making this place perfect for a study session.
You can also strike a pose next to Mr. Happy Lemon himself and experience the splendor that puts a smile on his face.
