Battle of the boba: Where to get the best boba tea in Fort Collins

To all of the self-proclaimed boba-holics out there, Fort Collins has a couple places you need to know about. Teriyaki Wok, Oasiz Boba and Ku Cha House of Tea offer the best boba tea in town.

Boba, also known as “Bubble Tea,” is a drink that contains tapioca balls usually paired with tea. Tapioca balls can make or break a boba drink. They are tiny, chewy balls with a delicate sugariness. Tapioca balls can be paired with numerous teas or frozen drinks.


When it comes to tea, these boba locations offer two forms of tea with boba. The first type is boba milk tea. Boba milk tea has more of a silky-smooth consistency. The second type is iced tea, which has a lighter consistency.

Another option is to mix boba with frozen drinks. The slush form of boba has more of an icy, chewy consistency, and the snow form of boba has more of a creamy, Frappuccino-like texture.
