Sinceretea Opens in Downtown Walnut Creek

1506 N. Main St, Walnut Creek

The boba tea cafe Sinceretea opened in downtown Walnut Creek over the weekend and being the boba tea and egg puff fan I am of course I had to try things out. According to the collective judgement of my children and I our favorites were definitely the egg puffs. Both the seasonal red velvet as well as chocolate flavors were delicious. It did take a while to make but it’s worth the wait. The drinks were enjoyable as well. They have a sample drink by the register to try with the default 50% sweetness which can be adjusted when ordering. Check out their menu here.

From their website:

Regrettably there are no longer enough sales to support the expense of providing the store. We are saddened to have to close and all that goes with it. We will miss our loyal customers and our staff in Walnut Creek.

Thank you again for your patronage. We await you in our Dublin location. At the right times of day it’s not a bad drive. We ask for your support for our remaining Dublin store so we can continue to fit shoes and help the dance and theater community. Please make your purchases with us, encourage your dance teacher to recommend the store rather than an online site, and bring us your group orders.
