S and I are always on the lookout for new milk tea shops, so when we read about Trinitea on Kirbie and CC‘s blogs, we decided to try it out. Although we’re rarely in Hillcrest, we found an opportunity to visit after having lunch at Streetcar Merchants.
The place was quite spacious, with the ordering counter tucked away in a corner and lots of tables. I think they’re trying to make it into a cool “hang out” spot, with board games and wifi and whatnot.
Close-up of the menu. They have pretty much the “standard” milk tea offerings as well as a bunch of coffees, blended drinks, and flavored teas.I chose the taro milk tea, and S had the Trinitea milk tea. We both ordered ours half sweet, our standard when trying a new place, and it turned out to be just right for us.
We enjoyed our drinks, but since we’re not usually in Hillcrest, I’m not sure how often we’ll be here. It is nice to have a milk tea option in the area, though, and some of the desserts in the display case looked quite good. Hopefully we will get a chance to return soon!
