Boba tea... a.k.a. Bubble tea, Tapioca tea, Pearl tea

Any recommendations for good spots to get Boba tea? I tried the Tea Lounge on Parmer and it was pretty good, but I'm looking for other options--especially in the Pflugerville/Round Rock area.

  1. Don't know about Pflugerville/Round Rock, but my favorite bubble tea in town is at Coco's at 183 and Ohlen Road.

      Thanks! I'll try Coco's. The Tea Lounge selection/menu is amazing (160 items)--download it from their website or pick up a to-go menu. I loved the iced "mocha coffee with tapioca." Many of their teas/drinks are available hot or cold. They have specials on FourSquare so be sure to 'check in,' and there's an ongoing special of "buy 5, get 1 free." Their Happy Hour is Mon-Thurs 10am -2pm: BUY 2, GET 1 FREE. Oh, and you can bring a used board game and donate it for a free tea!

      They have free wi-fi, but there's not a lot of seating. Check out their website:

        Sounds like a really cool spot! Will check it out next time I'm up that way. Love those great tips, too - I'll bet I could dig up an old board game around the house and get myself a freebie! :D
