The return of the bubble tea trend and 5 places in Vienna where to get the sweet heavenly drink

Who doesn’t love a dose of funky-flavoured, psychedelic-coloured, sweet tea with tiny, chewy tapioca balls in it? The bubble tea trend has made a comeback in Vienna like a Marvel remake.

Stores selling the addictive Taiwanese dessert drink have been popping up all over the city, and it’s not the first time. Vienna has seen the bubble tea trend before, however, for some reason, it died out, and is now back with vengeance and plenty people are going crazy for the sweet, sweet liquid delight.

This time around, the Boba stores are mostly using only natural ingredients and they’ve gone all out with hpyer-styling their interiors and their teas and snacks on offer – it’s all about the colour! It all makes for great Instagram porn.

Up your beverage game and get yourself a cup of bubble tea to make your “Spaziergang” a tad more enjoyable during this lockdown life. 

Here are 5 bubble tea stores in Vienna where you can taste the joy of boba right now:

Le Chá – 5 places to try bubble tea in Vienna

Daily: 12pm - 7pm

https://www.le-cha.at/

Between 4.50€ and 6.80€

Le Chá is located near Mariahilferstraße a few steps away from the Zieglergasse metro station.

They offer many kinds of bubble tea, ranging from creamy milk teas to fresh fruity ones. Also, whilst you’re there, you should try one of their homemade mochis – tasty as hell!

The interior fits with the “Mahü” vibe, looking hip as hell (we have no idea if hell looks hip), with a blanket-white, futuristic design. Le Cha lives up to the typical look and feel of Boba stores in that it has this fantasy feel to it.

Plus, they take great pride in the fact that there are no artificial ingredients used in their tea creations – all toppings and ingredients are homemade, and the tea is top notch quality stuff. They also offer some variations suitable for vegans and the gluten-free friends amongst us.

Expert-Tip: You can pre-order your boba on their website to avoid long waits!

Between: 4.50€ and 6.50€

Tea Plus is a veteran in the bubble tea game in Vienna and it’s so popular it has recently opened its second location – right at the end of Mariahilferstraße, near Westbahnhof, on a little street called Stumpergasse. Their original address is at Kurgerstrasse 12 in the first district.

Their offering of teas is large – from fruit teas, to milk creations – and their claim to fame is that they only use natural ingredients.

We’d recommend you add some of that cheese, cream cheese goodness to whatever tea you go for – it’s a texture adventure.

Their chic white interior, jazzed up with fake plants, is a pleasant place to spend some time with your tea and friends.

TEEAMO is a pocket-sized place (ok, you wouldn’t be able to fit it in your pocket, but it is cute and small and you’ll want to after you’ve tried their teas) located in the 1st district of Vienna, right at the St. Peters church. Yep, you can slurp up your tapioca balls amidst the charming streets of Vienna’s city center.

We love this place for its looks and the people that work behind the counter (they’re often looking as tastefully and outlandishly styled as the interior of the store.

They offer everything from Milk Teas, Fruit Teas, Sodas, Pure Teas and Smoothies, with all the toppings you’d expect on offer. You can mix ingredients and toppings to your heart’s content, so be sure to go for it and create your own Frankenstein of a tea. Oh, and if you’re in the mood, go for the Cheezo topping – it’s one wild, creamy ride.

Whilst there, you can also enjoy one of the cute little snack cakes they’ve got on offer. Oh, and loving the vertical plant wall you’ve got going their Teeamo (yes, pun intended).

Find Tea – 5 places to try bubble tea in Vienna

Between 4.50€ and 6.50€

You can find the Find Tea bubble store right on Kärtnerstraße, and their claim to fame is that they’re making ‘Premium Bubble Tea’ – whatever that may mean (we feel like Bubble tea is premium, in general).

Anyhow, they do a stellar job of putting together their fresh and fruity teas (apparently, the owner buys fresh strawberries every day), and sweet heaven milk teas. They’ve also got a few rainbow-coloured desserts on offer, including some colourful Mochi balls.

With their golden space theme happening, Find tea is like its own little world in the first district.

The self-proclaimed king of bubbles is keeping the Boba-loving people of Meidling happy. Located right at the Meidlinger Hauptstraße station, inside the shopping center, this is a popular option for those who pass through here daily, and for those addicted to this sweet drug in liquid form.
