Bubble Tea SS2 – The bubble tea craze has left Malaysians in awe. What’s not to love? A cold glass of milk, sweetened tea and a whole lot of chewy pearls that burst with flavour is a perfect way to combat our yearlong heatwave. In recent years, we’ve seen a flood of bubble tea stores open up all over our nation. The bubble tea game in Subang Jaya is so competitive; they even have a bubble tea street!
To help you out a little, here’s our list of the 7 Best Bubble Tea You Have to Try in SS2.
1. The Alley SS2
For those of you who prefer a drink with more subtle sugar content, this bubble tea place will be right up your alley! Best known for its Brown Sugar Deerioca Milk, where the chewy tapioca balls are soaked in brown sugar for a couple of hours and mixed with fresh milk.
The dark brown sugar at the bottom of the cup hiding the glistening globes of the pearl paired with the white milk is breathtaking! We urge you to try a lesser-known but just as tasty drink called Drown-a-Bear Au Lait.
We know! It sounds gruesome, but dunking your chocolate pear lolly into the warm milk is so much fun. Now, you know why this place is the first-ranked best bubble tea in SS2.
Address: 17, Jalan, Jalan SS 2/75, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Hours: 11.00 AM – 1.00 AM
2. Daboba SS2
Daboba is most famous for its signature roasted brown sugar pearl fresh milk. The fusion of earthy brown sugar and creamy milk allows your palate to bloom with flavour and a fragrance reminding you of simpler times.
Their Brown Sugar Series is a crème brûlée-style concoction with a layer of cream foam topped with brown sugar that’s torched until it’s caramelised. It’s quite a sight to see. On the other hand, if you do not have a sweet tooth or are looking for a drink that’s cooling and hydrating, try out the Pure Fresh Tea Series.
Address: 68G, Jalan SS 2/67, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Hours: 12.00 PM – 1.00 AM
3. The Black Whale SS2
Currently, The Black Whale are best known for their Brown Sugar Series and unique pearls brewed daily for 2-3 hours. They’re so keen on delivering quality, their fresh batch of pearls can only last up to three hours, making each bubble precious.
Black Whale are also famously known for their golden honey pearls, an exclusive at the Black Whale where they cook a strict selection of pure honey making sure each pearl is a globe of gold with a chewy, sweet, springy and unique smooth taste.
Address: Alkalife Water @ Ss2, No.6-G, Jalan SS2, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Hours: 12.00 PM – 2.00 AM
4. Xing Fu Tang
Another strong contender in the bubble tea rave is Xing Fu Tang with their signature Brown Sugar Boba Milk. Upon your order, the tearista may hint at you to open the cap and break the top caramelised part before stirring the drink for 18 times (for luck, of course!)
You’ll also be in for a show as the staff at XFT use a butane torch and make your drink all the more lit! While you’re here, try out their ice cream version of the bubble tea which will blow your mind.
Address: 9-G, Jalan SS2/75, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Hours: 12.00 PM – 1.00 AM
How could we go through this list without including our very own Malaysian brand of bubble tea? Tealive’s Signature Milk Tea is a must-have while you’re here. The concoction is of brewed quality tea, milk and pearls that taste of caramel pudding. A total treat! Apart from teas, coffee lovers should try their Bang Bang Coffee for a sure-fire caffeine rush.
Address: No. 5, Ground Floor, 67, Jalan SS2, Suria Selayang, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Hours: 10.00 AM – 10.00 PM
6. Moge Tee
Möge Tee serves tea-based drinks in many tastes. Their best-seller is a sweet blend between tea and fruits, and a must-try would be their Super Fruit Green Tea.
Apart from tea, Möge Tee has their soufflé pancakes prepared there and then, which is probably how the soufflé pancakes stay fluffy. With creamy exquisite ice cream flooding around the fluffy, cloud-like soufflé pancakes, they prove to be sinfully mind-blowing with each piece forked into your mouth
Address: 52, Jalan SS2/61, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Hours: 12.00 PM – 1.00 AM
7. Chatto SS2
This Japanese tea bar concept store has brought in fair competition against the otherwise Taiwanese-dominated industry. What makes them different from many Bubble Tea establishments is they have a selection of healthy tea and milk drinks.
A must-try here is Chatto’s Charcoal Pearl Organic Oolong which, according to the store, has a cleansing factor from the charcoal. Be sure to take a calm dip in a cooling cup of their smooth Oolong from Japan. What makes their tea so good is the fact that they roast their tea leaves to maximise the earthy flavours in your beverage.

Hours: 11.00 AM – 12.00 AM
