‘Teadori’ Boba Shop Opens On East College Avenue

Perfect for boba-loving night owls, Teadori is now in the lineup of tasty boba tea vendors in downtown State College. The shop is located at 454 E. College Ave., taking the place of Cozy Thai Bistro’s sister location, Galanga.

“The name is based on the word ‘midori.’ It means fresh and green in Japanese, like a new shoot on a plant. Our teas are fresh and green, so Teadori,” manager Atlas Duong said.

Teadori is open every day from noon to midnight with wifi access and plenty of entertaining board games, attempting to be an attractive post-dinner dessert or study spot. There is also currently a 25% off deal until October 31.

“We use high-quality, international wholesale products and fresh fruits in our drinks, not generic wholesale supplies,” Duong said. “So, I hope people can taste the difference.”

For $4 to $6, the shop carries oolong, jasmine, and black teas, as well as Uji matcha (finely ground Japanese green tea leaves), hojicha (roasted green tea), and genmaicha (roasted brown rice green tea). You have the option to go with or without milk.

For fruit lovers, there is a strawberry and black grape slushy, as well as a plan to alternate between other fruits throughout the season. Additionally, all drinks have the option to be topped with sweet cream cheese foam.

Cookies are currently in the works, with plans to add large six-ounce cookies with staple flavors of walnut chocolate chip and matcha, as well as other east Asian flavors like hojicha, to a weekly rotation.
