Where to Get Bubble Tea and Boba Drinks in Westchester

Here are our favorite places to find sweet bubble tea, also known as boba tea or pearl-milk tea, in Westchester County.

Bubble tea is the international drink phenomenon originating from Taichung, Taiwan. The “pearls” — called zhenzhu, if on the smaller side, and boba, if a bit larger — are traditionally made from brown sugar and tapioca, providing a bouncy, chewy surprise amid a delicious blend of milk, sugar, and tea. The drink first debuted in the 1980s using black tea, but nowadays can be found in a variety of flavors.

5Spice Tea House

11A S Moger Ave, Mount Kisco; 914.666.8882

5Spice Tea House serves a decadent and frothy bubble tea in the traditional Taiwanese style. (The “bubbles” in bubble tea originally referred to air bubbles from shaking, not the tapioca pearls.) The boba is made every few hours, comprised of tapioca, brown sugar, and honey. Along with a solid milk tea with boba in many flavors, 5Spice also provides an extensive list of green, black, and flower teas.
