While I've had my fair share of bubble teas around New York, one that I always come back to is the rose-flavored milk green tea at this spot in Chinatown! Its unique floral flavor is a great bubble tea to try at any time!

Two words. Milk. Foam.
I know it's not Movember anymore, but join in on some milk-mustachioed fun by drinking tea at Gong Cha topped with a luscious layer of milk foam. The pearls are...pearlfection, and they offer other cool things like ai-yu jelly along with classic custard, grass jelly and lychee jelly. Several tea and flavored drink choices here with full customization of sugar and ice levels, because you know you're picky even though you say you're not.

I would put this on par with Kung Fu, my other favorite bubble tea in Manhattan. It just opened but is quickly growing in popularity -- they actually ran out of bubbles one time when I got there late in the evening. I think they'll quickly grow in popularity.

This chain is all over New York! I've never really had a bad drink here, and I really like their Taro Milk Tea and Matcha Milk! The Matcha Milk is like a melted cup of green tea ice cream! Delicious!

This chain that's spread itself all over the city offers up some solid cups of bubble tea! I still have my 20% off VIP card (which they stopped giving out, unfortunately), so I find myself going here a lot! I really like getting their passion fruit 3Q tea (tapioca, jelly, and basil seeds)!

Absolutely the best straight up basic milk tea in New York. It's delicious either hot or cold and with or without tapioca (which is always fresh and delicious)! Give it a shot sometime, and also try their Thai Iced Tea as well! However, their flavored teas are generally made with powder.

This gem was the first teahouse to bring bubble tea to NYC in 1995. Although bubble tea is a commodity now, Saint's Alp continues to deliver high-quality drinks. The restaurant offers more than a dozen tea choices, with the option of tapioca, lychee or nothing put in the bottom of your drink. While the iced Green Apple Green Tea with lychee is my absolute favorite, their warm Honey Green Tea makes an excellent drink on cold winter day. Saint's Alp is a must-try for all bubble tea lovers. The drinks are super cheap, and they offer a to-go option.
