Social Hour at Tea Leaf Cafe

This was a popular event last time and brought out lots of first-timers, so let's repeat!

Let's meet in the 'burbs for tea and socializing!  Tea Leaf Cafe in Amherst offers traditional brewed teas, chai tea, and bubble tea!  Bubble tea is a must try if you've never had it.  There are many combinations of flavors that can be mixed with green or black teas.   Additionally, they have some light snacks such as dumplings available if you're hungry.

Never tried bubble tea?  Here's a description from wikipedia:

Bubble tea is the popular Americanized name for pearl milk tea and other similar tea and juice beverages that originated in tea shops in  Taichung city, Taiwan during the 1980s. Drink recipes may vary, but most bubble teas contain a tea base mixed with fruit (or fruit syrup) and/or milk. Ice-blended versions of the drinks, similar to slushies, are also available, usually in fruit flavors.

One of famous categories of bubble teas is " pearl milk tea" (also known as "boba milk tea"), which contains small chewy balls made of  tapioca starch, called "Pearls" in Chinese (also known as "Fenyuan" or "Boba (Poba)"). Pearls made of tapioca are also available in many places.

Bubble tea began its rise to international recognition, spreading from Taiwan to other East Asian countries. It then migrated to  CanadaChinatownsthroughout the  United States, and various college towns along the  American West Coast. There are also bubble tea cafes in the  UK. [1 ]

There are many variants of the drink, depending on the types of tea used and ingredients added. The most popular kinds are " green tea with pearls" (泡沫綠茶), "pearl  milk tea" (珍珠奶茶), "pearl green milk tea" (珍珠奶綠), "pearl black tea" (珍珠紅茶) and "pearl green tea" (珍珠綠茶), etc.

    Great meetup! I know it was a treasure hunt trying to find this place. We had some old members, some new members, and of course some no show members. And there were plenty of seats so we all lived happily ever after....

    I am going to close the new RSVPs so we're not sitting in the parking lot. We should've rented our own banquet hall with this many people.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
