Have you been to The Teahouse locations in Houston and Dallas? It is amazing! I can't wait until someone opens a location here. Any comparable places here in town?

Everyone claims to hate chains, but then begs for everything that other cities have. Isn't that how chains are born? Leave Teahouse in Houston and Dallas....enjoy them when you visit those places, and support our local tea shops.

This isn't an "English style" tea house. This is a tapioca/bubble/boba tea house. It is a very unique flavor. It isn't much of a chain with only 5 locations. I do not get to visit Houston or Dallas much anymore.

Yes...they are all over Houston, actually (not this chain necessarily, but independent vendors). Even in the mall.

Don't really understand the hype, IMHO. I just don't get it. "Unique flavor"--you bet. Blech!

Try bobalicious on 410 near the 9 Lives Bookstore. Or the drive thru bubble tea place at Babcock/Huebner.

Last week I finally found local Peking Duck almost as good as Sinh Sinh's (Houston) and now my favorite beverage spot is coming! Looks like I might not have to move back to Houston after all. Any idea where the new location will be? Hopefully we'll finally have a boba spot outside the Medical & downtown areas.

Best local bubble tea place I've found so far is Crystal & Dana's hidden inside a little oriental market off Wurzbach.
