If you love bubble tea, then this should definitely grab your attention. I moved to Oklahoma from Texas for school, and it was really hard for me to find a good boba café like the ones I went to in Texas. When I Googled bubble tea cafés, Teapioca Lounge was at the top of the list, and I decided to give it a try. Let me tell you something—it was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.

Teapioca Lounge is pretty modern and trendy, decorated with bold colors that lend energy to the atmosphere. They have many different kinds of tables, very amenable to any size of group, from couples to big parties. The environment is very fresh and clean.

It is a very accommodating place to have drinks with friends. They have really fun board games, and they play very good popular music. They also have free Wi-Fi, which makes it a great place to study. The staff is very nice—there might be some difficulties understanding some of the employees, but it’s always a pleasure to interact with people from different cultures.

They have a very extensive menu, which encompasses 178 drinks, including my favorites, Pudding Cream Tea Tapioca, Cream Green Tea Tapioca, Taro and the delightful Coconut Cream Tapioca. They also offer insanely delicious desserts like cheesecake and a “milky flurry” like an icy milk shake. On top of all that, their service is amazing—they make your drink really fast.

When you purchase a drink at Teapioca Lounge, they give you a stamp card. Every time you purchase a drink they give you a stamp, and after you get ten stamps your eleventh will be free. They also give a 15% discount when you check in on Yelp—a little free advertising never hurt anyone! What’s not to like about this place when they give you:

  •      A free drink
  •      Discounts
  •      Free Wi-Fi
  •      Large beverages
  •      Great music
  •      Clean environment
  •      Delicious boba

Their great customers service always makes me come back. I introduced Teapioca Lounge to a few of my friends, and they absolutely love it. We probably go there more than we should. I would definitely say I’m addicted to this place! I recommend Teapioca Lounge to everyone I meet. If you want to give it try, head down to 23rd and Classen!
