Boss Tea now open at UTSA’s main campus

Kaitlyn J. Grace
The Science and Engineering Building is located on the south-east edge of the Main Campus alongside Ford Avenue.

Boss Tea, a popular boba tea cafe, is now open on UTSA’s main campus in the Science and Engineering Building, offering numerous menu options.

Students continue to flock to the new establishment, proving the cafe will be the go-to spot for refreshing drinks on campus.

UTSA’s dining page reads, “Your new favorite dining location is NOW OPEN at the Science and Engineering Building! Boss Tea is serving an assortment of refreshing teas, boba drinks, lattes and more!”

Aside from boba tea, customers are also able to order other drinks such as coffee, matcha, milk teas and UTSA Specials “Rowdy” and “Meep Meep.” Students also have the option of different types of boba or other toppings, such as strawberry popping boba, mango star jelly and Oreo crumbs among others.

If one wishes to forgo toppings entirely, some drinks on the menu do not come with boba, which is indicated by the lack of a gray star next to the menu item. 

Since its opening on Sept. 5, students have given it their stamp of approval. “I think this is the best decision they’ve ever made,” Sampriti Selvam, an environmental science major said. “Every drink I’ve tried so far has been a hit.”

It should be noted that because of Boss Tea’s popularity, long lines are expected to form, which often result in significant wait times. Students should plan in advance to go when they do not have class or are in a rush. 

“I can tell it’s really popular, the line’s super long,” political science major Diego Elias said.

Boss Tea is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and is closed during the weekend. Prices vary depending on the drink and the amount of toppings chosen, but they mainly range from $5.50 to $7.50. For more information, as well as a full look at the menu, visit the UTSA dining page.
