Teapop Horchata

Horchata Los Angeles

Teapop's horchata is simple, but uses good ingredients.

Dancer and choreographer Arlene Yuan runs a laptop-friendly, art-lined cafe called Teapop in North Hollywood that draws plenty of students and aspiring screenwriters. She ostensibly specializes in tea and boba beverages, providing caffeinated counter-programming to neighborhood denizens, but also delves into drinks that don’t deliver buzz.

Their Horchata ($4.35 regular) is a textbook, well balanced agua fresca starring rice milk, with support from cinnamon and agave syrup. Teapop steeps the sparingly sweet drink overnight and serves over ice in a stainless steel cup.
