Same horoscope drinks and hot tea. I can't even remember which tea we got, but they're $4.95 for a pot and can be refilled with hot water upon request.
We really went because she wanted to try their shaved snowflake. Only we were told they were a seasonal item and only available in the late spring and summer. Plus, they now cost up to $7! :(
And they no longer sell the semen tea. Uh huh. See previous post for what that's all about. ;)
So I got a $3.50 order of fried string beans for us to snack on instead. Huuuge order. Fried until the skins are wrinkly and lightly dusted with chili spices, just the way I like them.
April 21, 2010 update:
I was just going to blog this and tell ya'll to look at the previous post when it was 85 Degrees to see the pictures of the shaved snowflake.
Then recently, after a dinner of Ca Ri Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Curry), Christine of Folie a Choisauce and Julian of Jewelz, What Are We Doing Today? mentioned a craving for the shaved snow at Class 302 Taiwanese Cuisine - Rowland Heights.
No need to go all the way to Rowland Heights, I told them. ID Cha House has a shaved snowflake that's pretty similar. Off we went for dessert. So they could get their fix and I could finally blog it.
There's still a requirement that each person must order an item. Julian got an iced tea while Christine and I shared a pot of kumquat tea for $4.95.
Mango and green bean shaved snowflake for $7.25, plus another $1 for the green beans. Mmm. They always choose the sweetest mangoes for this dessert.
Can you tell? The light fluffy texture of the snowflake?
Is this better?
If not, see my 85 Degrees C Tea House - San Gabriel post for better pictures.
Everything is basically the same as before, just a name change.
