Boba has become an integral component of Asian American life – which raises the question: where are the best places to get bubble tea? For West Coast boba lovers, this list comprises of some of the best and most reliable places to buy boba.
5. 85 Degrees
85 Degrees has consistently great bubble tea, not to mention their delicious pastries and other baked goods. Their fruit teas are always perfectly sweet and satisfying. As 85 Degrees opens more locations on the West Coast, their boba has become increasingly popular.
The boba at T4 is also consistently good, along with the various Taiwanese small eats they offer. Although they just recently expanded into the Pacific Northwest, T4 has already become a classic boba shop to visit.
A classic, nationwide chain – Sharetea offers all kinds of milk and fruit tea flavors with tons of different topping selections. When traveling, Sharetea is a go-to that you can trust to always have great boba.
2. Boba Guys
You’ll see Boba Guys top most of these lists, and for good reason. Sadly, Boba Guys is currently only located in California and New York, but other West Coasters are praying for them to open more locations soon.
Yifang is at the top because of its authentic fruit teas. They don’t offer many flavors, but that’s because each of the ones they do are curated to perfection. Founded in Taiwan, Yifang is known for its secret recipes and focusing on perfecting the ratio between boba and tea in each of their drinks. Although a bit more on the pricier side, each of their teas is definitely worth the money.
