Hello Always Tea

We are a new independent bubble tea shop located in East Village, New York. We are known for our handmade tapioca and high quality drinks made with strong tea, organic cane sugar, and fresh milk. We also share our passion for bubble tea with our boba classes held at our shop!

It all started the moment we decided to quit our jobs. In August of 2017, my husband (then boyfriend) and I both handed in our 2 weeks notice, leaving the place we called home for 3 years from San Francisco in a month-long road trip back to New York, where we grew up. With the millennial spirit, we decided we wanted to travel. We packed our bags and headed to our first destination - Taiwan!

Taiwan was our base country for many reasons. The main one being we had a place to stay for free, and of course, for the abundance of bubble tea. We even made our way down to Taichung city where the best & newest bubble tea shops are located. It was also there where we learned the ins and outs of what makes a good bubble tea, as well as the process of starting our dream shop.

 After boba-hopping across Asia, we flew back to New York in February of 2018 with a newfound appreciation for bubble tea and an aspiration to share it with the world.  However, we soon learned that there are many challenges of starting a new business. With a lot of patience and only a few nervous breakdowns, we finally made it happen. We are excited to share with you - Hello Always Tea. Come visit us because you deserve a #bobabreak!
