Apart from the rolled ice creams prepared right in front of you, 8 Degrees has more to offer. They got some real refreshing teas and boba options on their menu.

8 Degrees has a unique selection of milk teas (or boba) and fruit teas with innovative names and lots of toppings to choose from. Some of their best-selling drinks are I’m Groot with Boba, Lychee Lemon Green Tea and Wintermelon Milk Tea.
