Bubble Tea is a Taiwanese tea-based drink and can have multiple different toppings and is super customizable. It first began as milk black tea but as bubble tea has grown more popular, more creative and wide variety of flavors are available. Bubble Tea has becoming very popular over the years, but there are so many places to get bubble tea, it’s hard to choose from. Some of these you may have never heard of before, but I hope you will give them a shot and figure out what bubble tea place is your favorite. Here are four popular Bubble Tea places you need to try.

  1. Pochi is probably the most known and popular among teens.  It is just up on 164th and is known for their bubble tea and food options. Their bubble tea is reasonably priced, and you can customize it however you like. The price ranges from $5-7 depending on the extras you get inside. Plus, they have board games and the perfect place to hang out on a Friday night and play games and drink bubble tea. Personally my favorite is Honeydew with mini boba or a black milk tea.
  2. Wow Bubble Tea is in University District and offer more than just bubble tea, they have ice cream, coffee, frozen yogurt etc. They also have many options to choose from, my favorite is the cold rose milk tea with boba.  It ranges from about $3.50 to about $5 but it is a further drive. If you want to access their menu, you can find it on their Facebook page @ Wow Bubble Tea
  3. Over the Rainbow Tea Bar could be referenced as one of the more aesthetically pleasing bubble tea. They also have unique cups and food such as the bubble waffle. It is in Renton and is very reasonably priced as well.  There is not a specific website for the menu, but it can be easily accessed on Yelp. It ranges from about $3.75 to about $5. My favorite is the classic milk tea with boba and egg pudding, it may sound weird but it is delicious.
  4. Blank Space Café is in Bellevue and has bubble waffles, desserts, bubble tea, and much more. My favorite that I have gotten is a cold black milk tea with the Oreo bubble waffle if you decide to go, I highly recommend the waffles because it is just a unique dessert. My favorite is the peach smoothie with mango jelly.  It ranges from $3.75 up to $4.25 for the bubble tea, for food it is about $3.95 to $24.
