7 Best Bubble Tea Places in Virginia!

If you’re craving something refreshing and a little bit unique, bubble tea is your answer. Complemented by chewy tapioca balls, frothy texture, and sweet flavor—it’s the perfect sweet tooth satisfier and an excellent dessert after a yummy Asian meal. Check out these seven spots in Virginia for some of the best bubble tea around.

Pho 79, Williamsburg and Newport News, VA

Pho 79 is primarily a pho restaurant (no surprise based on the name) but don’t underestimate their bubble tea. It’s good. Like, really good. Flavors include strawberry, honey dew, mango, lychee, cantaloupe, coffee, peach taro, and more.

Champloo Desserts, Salem, VA

Champloo Desserts is another spot that specializes in all things delicious. Their menu contains “handcrafted rolled ice cream, delicious bubble tea, and a wide variety of desserts from all around the world.” Stop by either of their two locations for sugary goodness.

Got Dumplings, Charlottesville, VA

Got Dumplings, nestled in the Corner section of Charlottesville, just off of the University of Virginia’s campus, is a student and professor favorite. In addition to their scrumptious dumplings, they serve four kinds of bubble teas, including flavored bubble ice tea, house teas, and bubble milk tea. You can’t go wrong with any of them.

Kung Fu Tea, Harrisonburg, VA

Kung Fu Tea is a fast-growing franchise with a new location in Harrisonburg, Virginia. While the menu has slushes and punches, it is primarily a bubble tea shop. The menu has seasonal specials and tons of flavors to try out.

Kokee Tea, Multiple locations

Kokee Tea is a popular regional chain with nine Virginia locations (along with one in New Jersey and a handful in Maryland). The menu has 11 tea specials plus tons of premium milk teas, ice blends, and create-your-own options. The website is very user friendly, so feel free to check it out if bubble teas are new to you.

Lily Bubble Tea and Smoothie, Arlington, VA

If you’re in Pentagon City of the surrounding Arlington area and have a hankering for delicious bubble tea, then you should make sure that Lily Bubble Tea and Smoothie is on your go-to list. One recent reviewer said, “I’ve had buddle tea/boba from many, many places…and I can honestly say that the day I grabbed a taro boba my life literally changed.” If that’s not a ringing endorsement, we don’t know what is.

Jelly Ball, Virginia Beach, VA

Jelly Ball is the go-to spot for bubble tea in Virginia Beach, Virginia. They’ve been in business for years and years and natives have seen them grow from a small stand in the back of the mall to a much larger space. While their retail footprint may have changed, their reputation for delicious bubble teas, thankfully, hasn’t.
