Trying Rose Black Bubble Tea from Panache Cafe in Lafayette, California

We recently had the opportunity to try one of the many delicious bubble teas at Panache Cafe in Lafayette. We chose the rose black tea, and we were not disappointed!

The rose black tea had a nice sweetness to it and a bit of a caffeine kick which was great. We found the boba to have the perfect amount of sweetness, not too overpowering or overly sweet.

It had a nice creaminess to it, with subtle floral notes from the rose flavor. The boba was not dried out or chewy, which is really important. Overall, it was a really great experience from this local cafe.

In Lafayette, we also like Lilokoi Boba. Boba Guys has a great rose bubble tea down in San Ramon, too.

I’m Thomas Smith and today I’m trying the Rose Black Tea from Panache Cafe in Lafayette. I really like their bubble teas; it’s got a nice sweetness to it. This one has the Rose flavor, so it has a little bit of caffeine kick to it, which is great with the black tea.

In here, we’ve got a nice amount of boba. It’s sweet, which I like, but not overly sweet or anything. It has that Rose flavor, which is a little bit of almost like rose water type of flavor mixed in with the milk tea. It’s got that nice creaminess and floral type of notes from that Rose flavor and I think it blends really nicely.

It works really well here. Again, not overpowering, not overly sweet, nice milky, good consistency to the boba which is always really important. They’re not dried out and they’re not chewy. Overall, it’s really great.

This can be found on Mount Diablo Boulevard in Downtown Lafayette.
