Seattle is known for many of its coffee shops (especially Starbucks on every corner) but what about its bubble tea and boba culture? You’ll find out a little about that here today.
We’re curious though, is the stereotype true about every corner having a Starbucks or a coffee shop? People in Seattle must be caffeinated every minute! The tolerance must be out of this roof.
We’re sure with that amount of consumption comes great quality coffee though. Those in Seattle probably have some of the best coffee there is, it makes us wonder whether there’s the best coffee with boba pearls in Seattle. Is that weird?
Any who, let’s read about the best boba places in Seattle.
We had to look it up, 470+ reviews. Now that’s impressive for a bubble tea shop. We wonder if this beats out some of the coffee shops nearby!
Young Tea in Seattle serves up what some would say the best jasmine milk tea around here. At a glance you might think this is any ordinary coffee shop but in fact it’s a tea shop. You’ll be able to grab your delicious bubble tea, milk tea or boba right here. They also have tasty treats too like Chinese egg tarts (if you’re familiar with that) and other pastries.
If you’re asking yourself what flavors you should try here. We might suggest trying their jasmine milk tea of course but also give their oolong milk tea and matcha milk tea a taste too. Let us know how you like it.
Right off the bat you’ll have to try their beverages or milk tea that have fresh fruit with them (many of these are smoothies). For instance their all natural strawberry smoothie with boba pearls is really delicious. The right tang and sweetness is key! Plus, nothing beats fresh fruit especially on a hot summer day.
If you’re not in the mood for their smoothie drinks, have classic taro or Thai milk tea. These 2 bubble teas they make are by far one of the best. The rich colors and depth of flavor in both of these drinks are something we always look forward to when we’re around.
With over 300 positive reviews you can’t pass this up.
We’re sure you’re aware of Sharetea from the United States. Seriously it’s all over the place. With hundreds of locations scattered around the US you might just fall in love with them in multiple cities.
Just like the bigger franchises, Sharetea also “shares” some quality traits. With their consistency and high quality use of ingredients you’ll be satisfied with any location of Sharetea you go to.
Fun fact, they’ve literally been around since 1992. Let us share with you their top 10 drinks in case you’re interested (but we’re sure you are).
- Peach kiwi tea
- Thai iced tea (slush)
- Traditional black milk tea
- Strawberry (slush)
- Lime mojito (yep, they offer more than milk tea)
- Matcha with milk foam on top
- Winter Melon lemonade (yep, they have fruit teas too)
- Hawaiian Fruit tea (very delicious)
This brand of milk tea is also very consistent amongst other franchises.
We think what makes 20oz Tea shine so well is the fact that they don’t try too hard to impress people. They’re very focused at making the best milk tea they can with their internal team and that in itself translates into a great product. Thus consumers and bubble tea lovers enjoy their bubble tea very much.
They do have a unique flavor from time to time just to grab some attention though. One example is their blue strawberry lemonade. This isn’t milk tea but you can add boba pearls to it if you want to! The tanginess and right amount of sweetness is very tasty. Overall the beverage is refreshing during the hot months of the year. When it’s not raining in Seattle, this flavor is perfect for a sunny day.
Known as “Seattle’s place for bubble tea.”
We can talk about the boba and milk tea here but let’s switch cups and talk about how the person behind this is just as much of a machine in Entrepreneurship as Bobachine is in making people smile after each sip.
Did you know the founder of this bubble tea shop has a portfolio of companies in complete opposite industries? A few being a record company or nightclub. How interesting is that?
Well aside from those incredible ventures, the boba itself here is delicious and rewarding as much as the founder’s visions and ambitions. Try some of their lychee milk teas, mango milk teas or honey milk teas!
Will you grab some bubble tea with friends today? Rain (especially in Seattle) or shine, boba warms the soul every time! Here was the best boba places in Seattle we’ve been able to find and hopefully you’ll be happy with this list too.
