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.

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.
