Yeah, that's about right.

Default Vancouver Bubble Tea Rankings

Yeah, I know nobody goes to BBT any more, but I have a bunch of freshly arrived Japanese girls who are just discovering it.

So, school me, where are the good places to get bubble tea now? The quality of the stuff seems to really vary.

Pearl Castle in Richmond seems to attract families with kids or older audiences. I personally prefer Bubble World, Well Tea, and Estea in Richmond. Twinkle and Edge are also nice places to go too.

Thanks guys. Can anyone comment on the quality of the product? I've had so many bad bubble teas that tasted like Kool-Aid. Well Tea seems to be decent, and of course Dragon Ball is still going strong. Any other places that offer real juice or something else more than the usual sugary powders?

My favorite bubble tea places in Richmond would be Peanuts in Public Market, Bubble Queen on the corner of Cambie and Garden City.

I would occasionally go to Juice King in Yohan because I like the flavor of their milktea.

if you're in Coquitlam, Lazy Den is good...mainly cause I like Oolong Tea and alot of places around the area don't sell it.
Pearl Fever is either decent or bad, depending on the day you go and who's working lol
+1 for Dragon Ball as well.

What do you mean no goes for BBT anymore?!?
You can't go anywhere in Richmond without running into a BBT place.

The Bubble World chain of tea houses is pretty good.

I like pearl castle. they use real fruit in a bunch of their drinks, even the taro is real! though I think I like the purple stuff more.

plus if you go at night, there's usually a lot of nice cars to look at
