You may be familiar with Drive Thru Boba, Seattle’s first drive-thru bubble tea and ice cream cafe. They’re the masterminds behind famous White Rabbit ice cream pints, as well as in-house made mochi. Canning their drinks has recently been added to their repertoire.

The shop prides itself on brewing only premium quality loose leaf tea which they then sweeten with housemade organic raw sugar syrup. Drive Thru Boba currently cans multiple flavors of their specialty drinks, including matcha green tea, black sugar milk tea, strawberry milk tea, and others.

Current canned topping choices include pearls, ice, and grass jelly, although you can also choose to have a plain can filled with only your drink.

As well as cans, the shop bottles their drinks and offers reusable cups for purchase. Expect a ten to fifteen-minute wait, especially when they host their “dessert shop,” an event in which they feature ice creams, handmade mochi, and special bottled beverages.

Drive Thru Boba

Hours: Thursday, 12 to 2 pm; Friday to Sunday 12 to 6 pm
