The bubble tea shop features a variety of milk teas, fruit or herb teas, smoothies and a few desserts like mango sticky rice. The tea used in the drinks is brewed at the shop.
Tintong recalled having bubble tea for the first time in her 20s when she lived in Thailand. When she came to the United States and lived in California and Nevada, bubble tea was popular. When she moved to Ohio in 2009, she said no one knew about bubble tea.
Since then, she dreamed of opening a bubble tea shop. Her familyeventually opened Nida Thai Cuisine in Centerville and Thai Street Noodles in Kettering. In 2019 Chantha notably took over ownership of Siam Express, located next door to the bubble tea shop at 6118 Chambersburg Road. After Covid, the restaurant’s dine in orders declined, resulting in extra space for the bubble tea shop.
Tintong is excited to share her love of bubble tea with the Huber Heights community.
