Top 5 Best Boba Shops in LA

Los Angeles is a boba lover’s dream come true.  So much delicious boba has made its way from Bubble Tea Shops in Taiwan to LA, and these shops have combined the best aspects of Authentic Taiwanese Bubble Tea with LA’s Avant-guard culture.  In no particular order, here is our list of the Top 5 Best Boba Shops in LA.



They have a great name and excellent boba tea. LABOBATORY features honey boba and an extensive menu with unique flavors that are hard to find in traditional boba shops.  Not only do they have fantastic boba but they also have my favorite tea, High Mountain Oolong Tea from Taiwan.



Labobatory San Gabriel Location

819 W Las Tunas Dr
San Gabriel, CA 91776


Boba Bear

Boba Bear has something for everyone and combines Boba, Food, and Shisha.  Bobabear started in Korea Town, LA, in 2010 and has since expanded in the USA and even to some international locations.  Their philosophy is simple and aims to serve high-quality drinks, and delicious desserts and combine that with the best hookah in town.

Tpumps specializes in Taiwanese Teas with Tapioca Pearls (boba) in them.  Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it right because they often have a line out the door!  While you can order a regular green tea made with premium tea leaves if you want, they also have some creative drinks like Salted Caramel Cookie Dough Black Milk Tea.

Milk and T

Milk and T is one of my favorites because it has a “self-service” boba bar.  This unique concept combines the South Korean Froyo craze with Bubble Tea!  This allows the customer to try exciting combinations of boba, different types of jellies, and other toppings.  They also have a flat $5.00 price so you can pick and choose what you want without having to spend $0.50 or more per topping.  To top it off, they serve their drinks in a reusable glass jar which is both eco-friendly and stylish.

It’s Boba Time

It’s Boba Time went from a modest “standing room only” boba shop to a massive store with seating, great boba, hot food, and desserts!  They have over 140 drinks available, so there is always a drink for every type of boba drinker.  They currently have about 20 locations in Southern California and are expanding at an incredible rate.
