HiTea’s game-changing cheese-foam-topped tea series has made waves ever since the spot opened its doors. We can’t blame you if this style gave you the bubble bug, as their Aussie cheese and Asian tea combos are too delish to skip.

The last time we were in Grote St, we opted for the cheese black and Oreo matcha teas to savor their cheese-crowned concoctions.

But, if you’re more into fruity thirst-quenchers, you can’t go wrong HiTea’s grapefruit, green, and passion fruit teas.

We never liked slushie bubble teas until we tasted Bobagirl’s blends. This Rundle Mall spot offered us unique, snap-worthy varieties, with grapefruit, chocolate, and strawberry flavors as the ones that piqued our palates.

For fans of the tried-and-true, you may stick to their exquisite taro milk tea or kumquat lemon green tea. These run for around 6 to 8 bucks—pretty cheap for A-grade bevvies.

For instance, we went with Mysterious Asian Red Date on our last trip here. The drink is a one-of-a-kind cup of red date, purple rice, tea, and yogurt. 

Our team also sipped on dragonfruit and durian goodness made better by this shop’s velvety yogurt.

But, if you’re the type to gun for the numero uno drinks, fork over $8.50 for their A Date with Watermelon Peach and Strawberry Lemon Drop.

Bubbleroo never disappoints when it comes to cheap but flavor-packed fruity and creamy teas. Prices here start at around $5, so you can quench your bubble cravings without losing too much.

In terms of flavor, they like to keep it simple and satisfying, hence why we visit them whenever we’re craving classic blends. On our recent outing, we opted for Okinawa, chocolate, and mango teas—no-frills refreshments that still get the job done.

Going on a 32-minute road trip for bubble tea isn’t a bad idea if the destination is Bubble Me Bubble Tea.

Every time we come by, we order their non-dairy taro and brown sugar options, enriched by deluxe toppings such as aloe vera jelly, passionfruit popping, and more.
