Vancouver’s newest spot for bubble tea, Boba Run, is slated to open its doors today in Gastown.

The fresh 491-sq-ft shop is located at 102 West Hastings Street and will be offering up Korean-inspired boba drinks made using consciously sourced ingredients.

This means patrons can expect sweet sips incorporating ingredients like roasted corn, dalgona, yu-ja, and Jolly Pong, to name a few.

“You can say it was love at first sip as I simply adore boba tea, which is definitely a popular drink in Vancouver,” says Boba Run’s owner, Christine Alu.

“At Boba Run, our focus is on introducing Vancouverites to new, delicious, and unique flavours using quality ingredients.”

Boba Run’s drinks are made with 100% organic milk or alternative milk, such as oat and almond, along with the house-made organic syrup, premium teas, and tapioca balls directly from Korea, Taiwan, and Japan.

In addition to these, this spot will have specialty flavours like Korean Oat ‘N Barley Latte, Honeycomb Dalgona Latte, Sparkling Honey Yu-Ja Tea, and a Jolly Pong Shake featuring Korean puffed wheat breakfast cereal up for order.
