Ordered a fruit tea (the hulk), with less sugar. Honestly, it didn’t really taste like anything, or rather it tastes more like water with some mixed in flavor powder, rather than like tea. At least the tapioca itself was decent. Otherwise the place is super clean and the staff members were very friendly. Maybe it was just a bad luck, Perhaps will stop by again to try a different drink. They also sell some Asian snacks and merchandise in-store.

I loved the salmon rice balls and their fruit iced teas. It was very delicious. I prefer no ice. It was just as good. I would recommend the 100% sugar for your tea but thats my preference.

Cute place, little hard to find if you entered the wrong way of the building. Onigiri’s are delicious, Definitely recommend getting one!

You can adjust the sweetness level of the tea and there are lots of add-ins, like bursting bubbles. The rice balls are amazing.

Really liked this spot! The Hokkaido tea with boba added was really good, I got it at 75% sweetness and that was just the right amount for me. The plum onigiri was tasty and nicely packedged, with a small sized one being plenty filling. And the little plushes for sale were so cute! I only wish the seating was a little more comfortable.

YaYa is one of the best teahouses in Durham. They have delicious tea and great toppings. Their food is absolutely amazing. I love the onigiri and spring rolls the best. They have several food options for most diets. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They also have a small section of merchandise and Asian snacks which is pretty cool as well.

Yaya is the sickest place ever give Toby a 50$ raise he was the coolest sexiest barista ever and gave us stellar recommendations on what to order. 11/10 will be coming again

I like this place a lot. Chill atmosphere in what seems to be an office complex. Bubble/milk teas with some Japanese food. The rice balls are good but my one issue is that if you get a large one it seems to have the same amount of filling as the small so I'd suggest ordering two small ones instead of a large unless you just want extra rice.
