Michigan's got plenty of places to land your next bubble tea, and here are 7 of the best.

Cafe Boba, Kentwood, MI

Head to Kentwood to check out Cafe Boba, a place that focuses on one of bubble tea's lesser-known nicknames. It may be called Boba, but it's as bubble tea as it gets around here. You'll have just about all the choice you could ask for here, with bubbles added to smoothies, teas, and even Italian sodas to round out the package. You'll even be able to engage in flavor mixes here. Instead of stopping at just one, you can go all the way up to four. Soup, salad, and dumplings round out the options available.

Kawaii Bubble Tea, Clinton Township, MI

At the brightly-decorated and cozy Kawaii Bubble Tea, know that you'll have access to around 400 different flavor combinations. How does that sound? Choose from yummy options like honeydew, matcha, red bean, strawberry, and more. 

Saugatuck Tea Café and Gifts - Gelato, Saugatuck, MI

Saugatuck is known for quite a bit, including its arts connections, but bubble tea is also on the list as exemplified by the Saugatuck Tea Company. Not only is bubble tea offered, but so too are the bubbles by which you can make your own at home. The Saugatuck Tea Cafe and Gifts offers a dizzying array of teas, including white, green, black and chai. Throw in games, apparel, a tea club, and you’ve got a recipe for a great experience. 

Lucky Sushi Cafe, Grand Haven, MI

Lucky Sushi Cafe in Grand Haven is an excellent addition to the little lakeside town. While you'll also be able to land yourself a sushi dinner here, Lucky Sushi Cafe also offers plenty of options in tea. Bubble tea is an especially prized offering here, and some unusual flavor combinations can be had. Ever wonder how peach and pineapple would go together? Try it here! A green honeydew tea, perhaps? Also on hand. Throw in several varieties of bubbles and the result is worth the stop.

Pasty Haus, Frankenmuth, MI

If you're already in Frankenmuth, then you know you've got a lot to see and do there already. But while there, hit the Pasty Haus for not only a shot of Michigan's famous treat, the pasty, but also some bubble tea. With a wide range of options in fruity, creamy, and special-tea, you'll have taste options for weeks out here. Flavors range from the simple of a peach tea with kiwi bubbles known as the “Pe-Wi” to the cranberry orange, starting with orange milk tea, then adding yogurt bubbles and cranberries.

ChocolaTea, Portage, MI

At ChocolaTea, pick your flavor of choice—from almond to watermelon—and add bubbles from several options. Once you've constructed your bubble tea of choice, now the fun part (or perhaps the hard part) begins—choosing one of the many side dishes, chocolates, soups or sandwiches to go with it.
