The first thing you think of in Albuquerque, New Mexico is probably not bubble tea, boba or milk tea. But that doesn’t mean this city in New Mexico doesn’t have any bubble tea or boba places. Heck, you might even find boba and some great Mexican dishes all in one place!
Residing in the largest City of New Mexico has a lot of perks and disadvantages. For instance, in Albuquerque where it is sunny 310 days a year, drenching in sweat is normal and the thirst for a cool cup of beverage is a must. Insert a cold cup of bubble tea, milk tea with tapioca pearls, or boba.
Down below as you continue reading you’ll find boba shops or bubble tea places that we’ve highlighted. We’ll talk about the boba flavors, typical reviews and what we suggest to get from that very specific boba shop. Some say we’re the experts in boba and we hope you say the same after reading this article.
Have a look at the best boba places in Albuquerque.
Rustic Bubble Tea Café
Like any other milk tea shops, Rustic Bubble Tea Café is incomparable to most.
Located at 800 Juan Tabo Blvd NE, Albuquerque. It is easy to spot—just look for the big Rustic word displayed on the store, it’s very creative just as the boba teas they sell. Here in Rustic Bubble Tea Café, you are in for a treat, although the place looks like a typical modern café that sells boba tea, bubble tea, and milk tea, but guess what? They also serve authentic Vietnamese food to go with the teas, and not just your ordinary tea but bubble tea with a fusion of Asian ingredients.
So, whenever you are in the area make sure to try lavender milk tea, coconut snow bubble with lychee and green apple with mango.
Kawaii Boba Café
Aww, Kawaii. Yes! You are right! it is a Japanese inspired tea shop.
This place is absolutely adorable and for all those who are into anime and manga, I am sure you will love the place. But don’t go “kurutta” (can anyone guess what this means?) and come just for the ambiance or you will be missing on the good stuff.
Aside from Takoyaki (a famous ball shaped Japanese snack) and ramen, they also serve bubble tea, and they are so good too. There are many flavors to choose from, some are uncommonly served such as guava, choco berry, lavender, taro, and passion fruit, but what I’d really like is the Sakura, and no, not the cherry blossom tree nor its flowers. But coconut, lychee, and strawberry all blended together topped with strawberry heart jelly and cherry poppers.
Talk about a delicious set of flavors for bubble tea.
The only Filipino restaurant that serves Filipino cuisine and boba tea in Albuquerque.
As you enter the restaurant you will be greeted by smiles and hospitality since that is the national trade of Filipinos, they are friendly, warm, welcoming and hospitable and that is what you will also get as a bonus whenever you are in Bubblicitea Café US. They serve various authentic Filipino cuisine and the famous Halo-halo, a specialty dessert. As for the milk tea, you can always try any of the fruit-flavored tea but if you are not that adventurous then you can stick with the classic black milk tea and classic green milk tea.
We find ourselves thirsting for some traditional flavors at times here at Talk Boba.

Sweet Cup Espresso and Boba Bar
When you enter the Sweet Cup Espresso and Boba Bar the first thing that will ever cross your mind is saying that “I want one, NOW!” The aromatic, nutty and earthy smell of coffee that greets you as soon as you open the door. Just imagine the freshly ground coffee beans, brewed, add Thai Tea and now add the boba. Mmm, it tastes so good.
It is just as they say “We like coffee, we like boba. We love adding boba to your coffee. You will too” that really is the truth.
The Boba shop is an expansion of the Poki Poki Cevicheria, they want you to stroll and enjoy the offers they give in one place, in one stop.
