A bubble tea haven playing kung-fu flicks on Ponce

No, Honey Bubble's not an employee at Clermont Lounge, but she is right across the street in an urban dojo-ish space, and ready to kickstart your day with bubble tea: an organic steeped drink filled with delicious spherical flavor-bombs of tapioca.

Honey is dressed up in low-maintenance luxury vinyl tile that looks just like wood plank flooring but is much cooler with you spilling on it.

Designed by an HGTV Design Star alum, the space is an eclectic mix of contemporary furnishings and mid-century details like wooden wall slats to bring out a dojo vibe.

The sword doesn't hurt either. Unless someone slices your arm off with it, then it hurts.

Tea is made to order and sourced from 21 different vendors, much like Fat Chris Tucker's dinner when he goes to a Hawks game.

Begin at the logo that displays what they're all about to get your bubble tea experience on and poppin'.

Only honey and brown cane sugar are used to sweeten -- white sugar is actually banned from the establishment. Meanwhile, 20+ high-quality syrups like these from Italy are also used in the flavoring.

Because those Britas take forever to get cold, all the H2O used in teas and coffees are double filtered by this extremely high-tech thingamabob here.

Your made-to-order drank comes complete with those tasty pearls of tapioca goodness that absorb all the flavor, and are hilarious to put down the backs of girls' shirts.

Tea in hand, grab a seat and admire the scenery. That open space above the sword will serve as a screen for classic movies starring Bruce Lee and the Jim Kelly who didn't lose four Super Bowls.

There's also a selection of teas, filters, and pots to help brew at home. Jawbreakers don't count as bubbles.

Need space to have a brainstorming session about the name for the new Air Bud movie? No you don't, because it should definitely be Air Bud: Hockey Spaniel. But you can still "rent" this wifi-equipped conf room for 30mins with the purchase of some tea.
