I just had the greatest experience at the best boba milk tea joint ever. It's called Little Bean in Rowland Heights, CA (on Colima Road), and I gotta tell you -- I've tried boba from Tapioca Express to Lollicup to Ten Ren's, and no boba even remotely compares to the boba I drank at Little Bean. The thing I love the most about this place is that they use REAL FRUIT, so all your drinks are fresh and actually have some form of nutrition in it. (Places like Tapioca Express & Ten Ren all use artificial powder for most of their drinks). They even have all the chinese/taiwanese snacks, candy, and dried fruit you could ever want inside the store. Great service and great boba. Definitely recommended!!
(Note: If you go earlier on weekends, they have mini-bobas which I think are much better than the regular boba. They go much better with your drink)
