Yep, canned bubble tea is now a thing. From the spot that brought us the first drive-thru boba comes the first canned bubble tea. Enjoy premium loose leaf tea sweetened with organic sugar syrup. Those who are lactose intolerant can order their drinks with an oat milk substitute.

There are many reasons to love Bobae, their name being the first. They support local farms by using Smith Brother Farm’s Milk in their shop and offer milk alternatives, as two out of three founders are lactose intolerant. Bobae also focuses on providing quality matcha as well as beans from local roasteries.
