Are you looking for the best boba (bubble tea) near Greensboro or High Point, North Carolina? Over the past few years since I’ve moved to North Carolina, I’ve kissed a lot of boba frogs and have only found 4 princes that I can recommend without reservations. Here are my favorites, in no particular order.
This is a popular chain with locations in the US, Canada, Australia and a few parts of Asia. This is the newest addition to the Triad’s bubble tea scene that opened in late 2019 in High Point’s Palladium area. This is a great choice if you are newer to bubble tea scene as they have a lot of different options – slushes, punch, green tea, black tea, milk cap, yogurt, and espresso with both hot and cold options. I also love that you can customize the sugar level and they have the option to use lactose-free milk for those who have sensitivities. My personal favorite is the black milk tea with milk cap or the WOW (lactose-free) oreo milk strike (of course both with boba as they have the BEST textured boba in my opinion). This particular location also includes Ninja Cafe which offers delicious sushi burritos and poke bowls that pair perfectly with your boba. Be sure to follow them on Facebook as they often run specials (currently, they have a buy 2 drinks, get 1 free promotion until January 7th)
This is a Vietnamese restaurant that we came to first for their authentic selection of food, and got to try their amazing boba tea as a bonus. This restaurant is located on West Gate City Blvd in Greensboro right near La Super Michoacana. My husband and I both love getting their avocado fruit smoothie with boba. It’s incredibly creamy, and they use fresh avocado, unlike many places that use powdered flavoring. If you’ve never tried avocado bubble tea before, don’t knock it until you try it. It may sound a little odd, but when the avocado is prepared this way with some sweetness, it’s such a wonderful savory treat! They top it with whipped cream and it’s the perfect snack or dessert to cool your palate, especially after a spicy meal there. They also have regular boba tea if you don’t want a smoothie consistency, so you can try Taro, Mango, Coconut, Thai Tea, Honey Dew, and several other flavors.
This is a lively hang-out for bubble tea that also has a few food options as well. My favorite is the classic milk boba tea with milk cap and my husband’s pick is the avocado smoothie with boba. We have tried the food once or twice but would definitely recommend getting the tea here over the food. Master Tea is located on West Market St in Greensboro right next to the Super G market and directly next to one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in town, Hometown Delicious. It has a bright and cheerful vibe with pop music playing, plenty of fun decorations and areas to play board games and write on their giant chalkboard. They also have a fun mural of wings outside to get all your photos for the ‘gram! If you have a boba lover in your life, they also let you purchase gift cards.
This is a vegetarian restaurant with Vietnamese and Thai influences located on Tate St near UNC Greensboro. We usually get their avocado bubble tea and enjoy how fresh it is, but I’ve also tried their lychee and mango flavors which were good as well. They have several options for tea that can be made vegan as well. Their bubble tea is not as sweet as some others, so that could be good or bad depending on your palate. For me, that’s a good thing because I don’t like overly sweet drinks. Though we have not tried their food, we have heard great things about it from others. I like their emphasis on thoughtfully made food that is fresh.
I’m also excited about a new boba place about to open in 2020 called Moshi Moshi Boba Cafe which will be right across from Hops Burger Bar on Spring Garden St. I’ll update this post once it opens and I’m able to try their boba!
