Anyone had bubble tea in Twin Cities?

It's tea made with big tapiocas and I've tried to copy it at home with no luck. I think it's Chinese but found a Thai style recipe on the internet.
Yes, there is a small shop called bubble tea located in roseville (!)
On Lexington and a block North of Larpenteur in the mall across from the vintage Dairy Queen.
Even for a strip mall store it lacks atmosphere, i.e. not much fun to sit in for long, but I thought their bubble tea compaarable to what I've had in Singapore and Taiwan!
I recently moved to Mlps from San Francisco where there were numerous shops serving tapioca drinks (aka bubble tea). I have been on the hunt for a good tapioca drink place here in the Twin Cities ever since.
I have visited the aforementioned store in Roseville on several occasions and found that their drinks are usually too sweet. I think that is must be because they cook the tapioca balls in a syrup mixture instead of plain water. While I am not sure how this compares to those drinks served in Singapore and Taiwan, they are on the whole much, much sweeter than those served in San Francisco.
I just went to Shuang Hur, the big Asian grocery store nearby and they have a sign advertising $2 bubble tea. I have no idea of the quality, but it is there.
It is on University just West of Dale.
