Bubble Tea

Does anyone know where to get Bubble Tea in Center City? I only know of one place near Penn... Thanks for the help!

  1. There are many places in Chinatown. My favorite is KC's Pastries, where the red bean bubble tea is made with real red beans, not flavor powder. I haven't tried the fruit ones but they say 'fresh watermelon, fresh mango' so I'm hoping they are made with fresh fruit. Great Tea International on Sansom around 16th does a great matcha green tea bubble latte. There's another new tea place, also on Sansom around 16th that I'm sure does bubble tea. Thank you.

    1. Chinatown is probably your best bet (and I second KC Pastries). But a new place just opened on South St, around 7th street or so; it's an internet cafe with bubble tea.

      By the way, Bubble House in Univ City got me hooked on the stuff for while!
