7 Best Bubble Tea in Toronto (2022)

Bubble tea, also known as Boba and Pearl milk tea, has gotten recent popularity as locations started to appear all over Toronto around 2010.

With the low costs combined with easy ingredients, Bubble Tea is an amazing way for restaurants to attract young millennials and Gen Z’s to a spot where they can hangout and enjoy tasty Bubble Tea at affordable prices.

Bubble Tea originated back in the 1980’s in Taiwan where its main ingredients are Dairy milk, brewed tea, creamer, sugar, fruits and other sweet flavorings. What really makes it enjoyable is the tapioca which are seen as the gummy black balls you see in peoples drinks.

While there are dozens of locations all over Toronto, I want to show you the top 7 best bubble tea spots in Toronto which include single owned locations as well as popular chains.

1) Bobo Tea & Juice

Address: 62 Fort York Blvd, Toronto, ON M5V 4A6

Bobo Tea & Juice

Overall Review: 8.5/10

ChungChun Hot Dog is a well known Korean hot dog chain with over 200 locations globally, and several around the GTA.

What popularized ChungChun is it was founded in 2017 in Seoul, South Korea and that made them so popular was the fact that they specialized in Korean hotdogs.

With so much success, they chain expanded quite fast where they now have over 200 locations as of 2020.

Its hard to compete with a restaurant which pushes its efforts to ensure their one product is the best in the business.

5) Bubble Lee 

Address: 469 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2A9

Bubble Lee - bubble tea

Overall Review: 9.0/10

From quite drink cups to amazing flavors, Bubble Lee is a great place with unique bubble tea products.

Their main ingredients are tapioca which is carefully soaked in syrup which are freshly made everyday.

Brown sugar is a healthier alternative to and tastes just as great, black tea and jasmine green tea for the aromatic flavors and healthy micronutrients, ginger for the spicy and antioxidation properties, and of course milk to blend it all together.

Drink Rating: 9.6/10

Bubble Lee makes their drinks slightly different by focusing on providing customers with a healthier by still tasty alternative.

With the use of brown sugar, low fat milk and ginger you can get the benefits of a tasty drink while filling your body with missed micronutrients you couldn’t get at any other bubble tea spot in Toronto.

Price Rating: 9.0/10

The fact that their bubble tea drinks are healthier and still affordable makes me highly recommend this spot.

You would be looking to spend anywhere from $3.99 to $5.99 for a good sized bubble tea drink.
