So you’ve clicked here because you want to find the best places to buy bubble tea in London, you’ve definitely come to the right place!
I have to be honest here, writing this post is pretty bittersweet. Since covid, nothing has quite been the same and I haven’t been drinking as much bubble tea as before. I know, it’s horrible- oh how do I cope!?
If you don’t know already, bubble tea (or boba) is a drink that originated in Taiwan. It typically consists of milk tea and delicious, chewy balls! …Tapioca balls that is.
But it doesn’t stop there, bubble tea spots usually have a wide range of other toppings to choose from. You can mix and match between teas and toppings to create the drink of your dreams! It really is all trial and error so don’t be afraid to try something different every once in a while.
So in no particular order, these are 8 of best bubble tea spots in London… according to me!
