5 Pittsburgh Locations for Boba Tea

Local blogger and bobafìcionado Sophia Chang enthusiastically shares some of her favorite boba bevvies.

Banh Mi and Ti

4502 Butler Street
The unofficial “Sophia” is boba-butterfly pea tea, oat milk, brown sugar, and boba. It’s sweet, refreshing, caffeine-free, and super eye-catching (plus photographable!), so it can be enjoyed by everyone: the quintessential bubble tea.

Bae Bae’s Kitchen

951 Liberty Avenue
Taro boba tea with oat milk is a great way to be introduced to taro. It’s creamy, smooth, and goes perfectly with Bae Bae’s Korean fried chicken.

JJ Poke

110 Atwood Street
JJ honey green tea with boba is so smooth, it doesn’t need dairy. This is a classic tea order and is so refreshing in the summer.

Fuku Tea

Oakland and Squirrel Hill
Wintermelon green tea with boba may sound intimidating, but it’s such a light, smooth flavor. I would recommend trying it, but if wintermelon doesn’t sound like it’s for you, Fuku has a large selection to peruse.

Café 102

4314 Butler Street
A pineapple and passionfruit refresher with boba packs powerful, fruity flavors into an intriguing combination. They have interesting traditional coffees as well.
