Last year I took my niece to Reno to celebrate her birthday, and of course I had to stop at a tea place (or two). I choose the Laughing C. A. T. Cafe, as I love Cats, but unfortunately I did not have a fun experience there.
The following day I wanted to try another place, but my niece is not a fan of tea (I’m trying to convince her otherwise). However, she does like Boba and doesn’t consider it as “gross” as “my tea” so it is fair game to try. I enjoy Boba so I was happy to try out a place.
I wasn’t sure where to go and Reno has a LOT of Boba places to choose from. I searched through the options, tried to find the highest rated and settled on Bubble Tea Station in Midtown.
Bubble Tea Station had really high reviews and when we arrived there, the line was super long. You know that something has to be good if the line to get it is enormous.
They had so many options to choose from, which was really nice, as many places had changed to a small menu with COVID-19.
Bubble Tea Station (BTS) did make one change to their menu, they no longer offered a choice of size, but due to costs only serve large Bobas (24 ounces).
We each decided on different ones: my sister ordered passionfruit (no boba as she hates tapioca), I ordered Matcha (no boba as I too hate tapioca), and my niece ordered the original.
My sister and I loved our drinks (I guzzled mine down) while my niece didn’t care for the original. She ended up trading with my sister and enjoyed the passionfruit better.
The staff were very kind and friendly and gave wonderful suggestions to those uncertain as what to drink.
If you love Boba I highly recommend it and would definitely revisit when I return to Reno.
Also as a bonus, there is an amazing shop across the street, Junkee. Don’t miss out on that store as it has so many awesome things!
