Where to Drink: Bubble Tea in London

11 June 2019 | Billie Manning

London's love for bubble tea - the Taiwanese treat of tea drinks with tapioca pearls, popping boba or other jellies added to it - doen't look like it'll be slowing down any time soon. Here are the best places to pop pearls to your heart's content.

Gonuts Bubble Tea
What? Small but mighty local tea-stop
Where? Holloway Road
Why? Tasty teas in adventurous or trad flavours - both at reasonable prices - make this an obvious choice for bubble-lovers, but what pushes it into a higher tier is the super-friendly service and warm atmosphere
 
Mooboo
What? Bubble tea chain with fun flavours
Where? Camden Town
Why? This little café is more than it looks from the outside – its interior, though tiny, is brightly coloured and filled with all the cuteness its name might imply. The tea is good too - try the piña colada flavour
 
Candy Café
What? Internet café supplying students with endless tea
Where? Chinatown
Why? This is where to go if you really want to get into a buzzing tea shop vibe – it’s never empty and there’s always something going on
 
Biju
What? Freshly-brewed (and never stewed) boba tea for all
Where? Soho, South Ken and Westfield
Why? Biju’s motto is fresh, fresh, fresh: organic milks and natural fruit boba only, please! Plus, they deliver. What’s not to like? 
 
Yifang Taiwan Fruit Tea
What? Slightly higher-end boba
Where? Across the city from Bond Street to Mile End
Why? This is what might be touted as the real deal – and their specialty winter melon flavours aren’t to be missed
