So you’ve already got yourself a reusable water bottle and coffee cup – but when it comes to your bbtea (aka. bubble tea) addiction, not just any bottle will do. To avoid wasting another one of those tall, single-use plastic cups sealed in plastic, not to mention the extra wide straw and plastic wrap it comes in, we’ve rounded up eight super cute reusable bubble tea bottles to accommodate your favourite boba drink (plus all its fixings)!
Boba Pearl Tumbler
Developed in Hong Kong by two young girls, Charlie and Lovis, Boba Pearl is for all the eco-minded boba lovers out there. These stylish, sleek tumblers are made from food-grade stainless steel with a double-walled, vacuum insulated body to ensure your drink remains hot or cold for hours, with a wide straw opening to accommodate all your precious pearls.
The Boba Pearl Tumbler also conveniently fits most cup holders and has a durable matte finish to withstand travel and any mode of transportation. Best of all, for each cup purchased, one tree will be planted in a mangrove forest to reduce and remove carbon from the air, through the ecological non-profit, SeaTrees.

Elephant Cuppa Eco Tumbler
Of course a boba tumbler from the Land of Boba (Taiwan) would have all your boba-drinking needs covered. Elephant Cuppa, a Taipei-based company, is on a mission to reduce single-use products with its ingenious reusable, portable and boba-friendly tumbler. At only five ounces, the Cuppa weighs less than a smartphone and is smartly leak-proof and dust-proof so you can use it to transport snacks, water and other non-boba liquids too: think of it as a Tupperware, water bottle and boba carrier in one.
The patented lid can accommodate wide and standard width straws with a screw on top that can also cover your straw if you want to enjoy your drink on the go. Made with BPA-free and heat-resistant Ecozen plastic, the cup and lid are easy to clean and each set comes with two straws as well as a brush for keeping your straws clean.
Available at Elephant Cuppa and Green Common

Cuppé Bubble Tea Tumbler
Too many reusable bottles, too little time? Try the Cuppé Bubble Tea Tumbler, created by a trio of girls inspired by a love for the ocean and the environment in their native Borneo, the rise of bubble tea shops in their home city of Melbourne led them to dream up a bubble tea cup that was equal parts responsible and stylish. The Cuppé is a handcrafted glass tumbler made from premium borosilicate glass that’s designed to be used throughout the day.
The BPA-free dual-use lid has a handy flippable cover so you can sip with or without a straw, and it makes the tumbler leak-proof too. A food-grade silicone band provides extra grip and protection for hot and cold drinks so you can enjoy icy cold infused water or a piping hot cuppa.

BobaMate Boba Bottle
To minimise the pain of carrying around a reusable straw, bottle and straw brush, BobaMate Boba Bottle’s 3-in-1 design integrates a movable, reusable straw into the bottle for added convenience. A pop-top lid keeps the straw and opening concealed from germs and bacteria, and comes with a fold-away handle so you can carry your bottle with ease.
If you love fresh fruit or special toppings, the bottle’s curved base is cleverly designed so your toppings gravitate toward the centre while the straw can be moved 360° so no topping goes to waste. Each bottle is made with a glass-like plastic called Tritan, meaning its shatter-resistant and durable, and has a steel-based with wood paint for a little extra flourish. Added bonus? BobaMate now offers carbon neutral shipping!

FLOAT Boba Cup
With FLOAT Boba Cup, get your boba as Bond would: shaken, not stirred. Made in Taiwan, this unique cup truly elevates the boba experience with a special ellipse-shaped cap that enables boba and tea to flow in equal proportion: the cap has an inner cup which holds the boba or solid toppings, so they don’t float to the bottom and stuck beneath the ice.
The inner cap also acts as a filter to let tea through as well, so you get a more balanced sip with equal liquid and topping at just the right temperature! The outside of the cup is also curved for greater grip and the body of the cup is made with Tritan plastic for optimal durability and insulation.
