I wasn’t quite sure what to post today, so I decided to share one of my favorite spots to get milk tea in Los Angeles with you all – Pearl’s Finest Teas! Pearl’s Finest is located in Fairfax, just a short walk away from the collection of trendy streetwear stores the area is best known for. This milk tea cafe is clean and minimal, with an aesthetic full of pastel pink and palm tree vibes. It’s also dog-friendly, which is a major plus in my book.

Pearl’s menu has something for everyone – their flavors range from your typical milk tea classics and coffee drinks to the store’s unique, specialty favorites. Pearl’s specialty drinks include horchata milk tea, the L.A. Dirt, and their Instagram-worthy Orange Yuzu. I’ve been to Pearl’s Finest Teas multiple times with lots of different people and I’ve never tasted a drink from here I didn’t like.
One of my favorite parts about Pearl’s is that there are so many ways to customize your drink. For example, when it comes to the milk in your drink you can choose from no milk, house milk, hemp milk, and soy milk. Just a few of the toppings you can choose to add to your drink include honey boba, aloe, chia seeds, egg pudding, and more.
In the pictures I took from my last visit, I ordered their “matchata” (matcha + horchata) and my friend ordered the sesame milk tea.
I also love that Pearl’s Finest Teas only uses fresh, natural ingredients to make their drinks. You won’t find any artificial flavorings or powders here, unlike plenty of other boba shops. They make their honey boba fresh throughout the day, and it is always the perfect consistency. If you can’t tell from the photos in this article, Pearl’s is also super generous with the amount of boba they give you!
Whether you’re a fan of sweet non-caffeinated drinks or the earthy taste of matcha, you will definitely find something here that you’ll love. The best part is, you don’t have to choose from the menu; (even though it’s incredibly unique and you’ll definitely find something you’ve never had before) you can make your own drink, too!
