Toastea – Downtown Los Angeles

The tea house experience re-imagined. Introducing Southern California to the newest revolution on your taste buds — brick toast and boba tea.

Great tea cannot be made without great ingredients. At Toastea, we only use responsibly sourced whole leaf tea—there are no powders, shortcuts, or shenanigans. This is why we have chosen to partner with premier global tea companies to develop our proprietary blends of tea. Our partners have scoured the world for over a decade finding the best teas so we could share them with you.

And our relentless commitment to quality doesn’t stop with our teas:

Our boba comes straight from Taiwan, the birthplace of boba. Our bread is baked fresh and delivered to us daily from some of the best bakeries in Southern California. We even offer great alternative milk options from organic to dairy-free options like soy milk (seldom found in other tea shops).

It may sound cliche, but it takes a village to do things the right way—that’s why we hand-picked the best partners in the business.

With great leaves come great responsibili-tea—responsibility to prepare and brew each cup the right way. While other shops might add water to powder and call it “tea,” we specially prepare every type of tea following the time-honored traditions of our ancestors. At Toastea, each varietal is uniquely steeped for a specific amount of time and at a precise temperature. That way you will be able to enjoy every artisanal blend we have to offer, whether it’s a delicate jasmine green, a bold earl grey, or an exotic rooibos, just as the leaves intended.

And a delicious beverage requires an equally delicious tea-mate:

Our boba is made in small batches in-store every hour to ensure that you have the freshest drink every time. We’ve spent years in the kitchen refining everything from our toasts to our teas to get things just right.

At the end of the day, the best ingredients in the world mean nothing without mastering the craft. That’s why at Toastea, we ensure every ingredient is sculpted into a work of art.

Tea has always been about community. For centuries, the tea house has been the place for weary travelers to recharge, for friends to reconnect, and for game-changing ideas to be shared. We need that type of place now more than ever, especially in downtown Los Angeles where we have too much traffic and not enough time.

And given the many unique traditions around the world, we understand that everyone prefers their own “cup of tea”:

To create your perfect drink, we have designed a simplified, step-by-step menu for maximum customization. Want your tea with three flavors? Not too sweet? A little ice? Done, done, and done. We want you to build your drink exactly as you like it and have a tasty treat to go along with it.

Life is too short so enjoy food the way you want in a place that makes you feel, well, Toastea!
