Escaping a thunderstorm discovered a great place for tea, coffee and slushes. Put up with our game of Euchre while the rain subsided. Highly recommend.

I am a tea snob. If a place proclaims to be a tea bar, they better deliver. O-Cha delivers. They offer an excellent selection of teas that are properly brewed and served. The location is very convenient to Falls Park and downtown Greenville, and offers friendly service and a tempting selection of sweets. A great stop during a day exploring... More

The staff were friendly and the drinks were good. I've been more than once and it's been pretty consistent. The coconut snow cream reminded me of a toasted marshmallow jelly bean. I recommend.

I had a bear claw. I enjoyed it. The service was excellent and the price was very good. I would most definitely return.

I had a piece of spinach and artichoke quiche and the iced tea of the day. The quiche was salty but other than that, not bad. The tea was so bad that I couldn't drink it. I left it on the sidewalk. It tasted powered. It was loud in the restaurant. I only spent a little over $5 but I... More

Harlan- I am very sorry that your experience in our cafe was not what you were expecting. We are a small, locally owned and operated, family business that takes every review seriously. I would love to know which tea of the day you purchased so that we may improve on that tea if need be. I'm unsure what "powdered" means.... More

For locals and travelers alike, O-CHA tea bar is a must stop beverage destination in the heart of Downtown Greenville. Their staff is always up-beat, friendly, and most importantly proficient.

We came in for some refreshments. Thought it must be really great since the place was pretty full. Ordered 5 drinks and waited. The flavor was really weak, stingy on the Boba as well. All of that was not a huge deal, but the girl who waited on us was just full of bad attitude. Like "I don't wanna wait... More

One of the most delightful surprises of a weekend trip to Greenville was stepping into the O-CHA tea bar and meeting Mally, the owner. If you don't have a favorite tea, put yourself in her hands for a recommendation. She will not disappoint! And guys, her signature mug has a handle that any guy would love to get his entire... More

Growing up in Cambodia and spending a year in China, I have grown to love several Asian specialties. Bubble milk tea is one of my favorites, and finding an authentic drink here in the States can be a challenge. O-CHA was perfect!
