Nov 20 2019, 4:48 pm

Step aside coffee, bubble tea is our new drink of choice. Bubble tea has steadily become a popular drink in Portland these past few years, and we’re not surprised. Whether it’s aromatic herbal tea with crispy coconut jelly, or chewy tapioca pearls drowned in milky Earl Grey tea, the options to customize your bubble tea are endless.

Speaking of endless, there are so many bubble tea shops in Portland that it’s not uncommon to feel like a tapioca pearl yourself, downed in delicious options.

Here are some of our favorite bubble tea stores across PDX.

Milk + T has some crazy-fun options on their menu. Their drinks are all-natural and super delicious. Our personal recommendation is the Feelin’ Salty tea, caramel milk tea with a hint of sea salt and a scoop of vanilla on top. Yum!
