There are some solid bubble tea choices on the menu, and they have always prepared enough tapioca balls or jellies for everyone, and the queues are never that long. The downside of the business is the location, it's always cold in Boxpark in winter, and in summer it's too crowded to hang around. The shop has only 6 seats, and... More

Love bubble tea, so I had it at a lot of locations throughout London. Although, Boxpark is a bit out of the way, the tea there is excellent. They offer about 30 tea flavors, including more exotic flavors, such as Mango Matte (my favorite). The service is also excellent! Highly recommended if you are in the area!!

I visited the one in Little Portland and Shordich High Street ! Really good service and loved the choices. Taro milk with pearls is my favourite !

This was a new concept for me and I have to say that I didn't enjoy the experience. The texture of the pearls in the mouth at the same time as the tea was very slimey in the mouth and didn't feel natural or comfortable. The feeling made me want to gag. I'm sure that some people like the sensation... More

I was craving bubble tea on my trip to London and found this place very close to where I was staying, just down the road. It's a cute space and pretty good for chilling. 3.5 pounds for one. Not bad but can't say it's the best.

This bubble tea outlet was one of the best we have had . Blended perfectly we had the coconut milk tea with tapioca and passion fruit pearls.

We popped in to the Bethnal Green branch, needing a cold drink. Although you may think this is a tea emporium we had lovely milk shake type drinks. Both of us had coconut and I had little apple jelly "pearls" in mine. Delicious and fun too trying to suck up the pearls and not leave any. Reasonably priced too. This... More

A friend and I had hot coconut tea. I had half and half of lychee bubbles and passionfruit bubbles. My friend had the strawberry bubbles. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! We wept when our cups were empty! The cups are sealed so you can carry them for ages without them spilling. The pearls sink to the bottom of the 'tea' and don't dissolve.... More
