Located in Beaverton at 4545 SW Angel Ave., Suite 160, Milk+T is a self-serve boba bar that opened in August 2018! They are a female owned and a small business located in only two locations, Los Angeles and Portland. What makes them unique is their self-serve boba bar, their reusable glass jars offered to customers, and their all-natural and handcrafted drinks! They started their business in a food truck in LA, back in 2015. Due to loyal fans, social media, and strong momentum of going viral on the Internet, they were able to push for their first store just after a year of being open. They are so thankful to be next to BHS because they love being an active member of the community. In fact, they have helped out BHS’ Asian Pacific Islander Club! If you are looking for something to drink, check out Milk+T!
