The best bubble tea in Burnaby according to our readers
What's your go-to 🧋 spot?
When the weather is hot and you’re looking for a cold treat that isn’t ice cream or a Slurpee, look no further than bubble tea.
Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here are some Burnaby bubble tea spots you need to try.
TeaLips Cafe: “I’ve been going there for NINE years and have seen the place evolve so much. It somehow possesses magical qualities for me to reach peak productivity when finishing papers, and I often turn to them when I’m having a bad day and want my favourite chicken pesto sandwich. Highly recommended!” says Beacon reader Kayli Jamieson.

Blossom Teas: A personal favourite of mine, Blossom Teas is a hidden gem that serves up excellent bubble tea. The pearls are fresh, and have a consistently good texture. Their mango drink options are a popular favourite. One of my go-to’s is the taro slush made with non-dairy milk. Definitely give Blossom a try!

Ki Tea House Cafe: “This vote is from my two teenage daughters (15 and 19) and local bubble tea connoisseurs. I think it is great too! Great atmosphere as well,” says Carla.
