With Boston’s boba infatuation, there’s no shortage of bubble tea shops in every neighborhood. But if you’re like us and prefer the finer things in life, this guide shares where to find the best bubble tea. From an organic Beacon Street shop to a refreshing boba soft serve, these are the best bubble tea stores in Boston.
The elevated bubble tea shop focuses on freshness and quality. The boba is soaked in honey for a delicious flavor and golden color. You can slurp on a fresh strawberry milk tea or get one of the slushies made with jasmine and fresh grapes! Shinmio only uses organic whole milk in all of their drinks, with dairy-free alternatives as well.

A Taiwanese chain that started in 2006, this boba shop has literally been perfecting its craft for decades. The extensive menu ensures you can mix things up often. We highly recommend adding the “cheese foam” to your drink for an extra special treat.
