Best Boba in Boston

Bubble tea is a delicious treat from Taiwan that has spread all across Asia to the United States, Australia, and Canada. You can never go wrong with the classic black milk tea with tapioca pearls but modern teahouses and restaurants have put their own sweet twists on this drink. Boston is home to so many of these places, bringing together the Asian and American experiences together in tasty harmony.


Check out some of my favorite places to get Boba in Boston listed below!


1.  Kung Fu Tea in Allston, Chinatown, and Cleveland Circle

            Recommendation: Honey milk green tea with boba


2.  Tea-Do in Chinatown

           Recommendation: Japanese green milk tea with red bean


3.  Chatime in Chinatown and at NEU

           Recommendation: Passionfruit green tea with mango jelly


4.  New Dong Khanh in Chinatown

           Recommendation: Iced Thai milk tea


5.  Lollicup inside 88 Supermarket Food Court in Allston

           Recommendation: Mango slush with boba


6.  Next Door Cafe in Allston

           Recommendation: Mango milk green tea with boba in a lightbulb! FYI, the lightbulb is very aesthetic but it’s the price of a large for the amount of a small :)


7.  Boston Tea Shop in Harvard Square

           Recommendation: Jasmine milk tea with boba


8.  Limered Teahouse in Allston (and Amherst, MA!)

           Recommendation: Taro milk tea with boba


Not on this list (but should and will be!) is Gong Cha, a popular bubble tea shop franchise from Taiwan already in China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Australia, other countries in Asia, Canada, New York, and Boston very soon!

Check them out if bubble tea is your thing when they open in Chinatown soon; it’s my favorite place to get boba whenever I’m in Asia.

Happy drinking!
