I live in an area with few boba options. This bottle allows me to make boba at home and take it with me anywhere! It’s everything I could’ve asked for in a boba bottle.
I’ve followed BobaMate since it was a start up, and I finally got the boba cup of my dreams. It works perfectly, clumsy-proof, and sleek. I love lowering the amount of waste I create since I get boba all the time. My boba shop uses the cup no problem and I can use it for when I make boba at home. I love mine!
This is a great bottle. Easy to travel with and doesn't spill at all. The only thing I dont care for is that you are left with some liquid at the bottom of the cup when you are using it because of the cut of the straw so you have to open the cup and drink the remaining that way.
At first, I was a little discouraged with how stiff the straw is, thinking it would be awkward to drink-- but no! Customer service was very helpful with explaining that after a few uses, the straw should be broken in. I love the boba carrying handle that is part of the lid. I have no excuse for dropping my boba ever again!
Overall, I can tell the founder put in a lot of time and effort to come up with this creative design. Very excited to see what other products and accessories team BobaMate comes out with soon!
Don't let the name fool you, because this bottle is great for much more than boba. But first, the bottle is basically three different parts - the bottle, the cap, and the main straw. The cap has a handle for easy transport with the bottle and the top bit of the boba straw that isn't removable, but doesn't cause an issue and easily attaches to the main straw (there's also a silicone piece on the main straw that blocks any liquid from spilling if you flip or shake your bottle -genius). The curved bottom does exactly as intended and passes the (ACCIDENTAL) drop test. The only issues that I've encountered is sometimes it's difficult to get the cap open because there's a lock mechanism. If you don't have nails the "easy open" design is a bit more challenging. Also, the bottle does sweat. I get around this by putting a sleeve, but especially during the summer months, you'll need to wipe down the sides because it'll get slippery to hold. Overall, great purchase and you can tell all of the love that went into this project :)
I just got my bottle today and was super excited since I been wanting a spill proof container to take my boba to work. First thing I noticed out of the shipping box was a consider puncture hole in the main packaging but that didn’t bother me too much. I took the time to take apart the main components of the bottle (Lid, removable straw, straw brush) when i noticed the point of the straw at the bottom has a crack and pretty coarse and rigid on the plastic, not smoothed down. I know somehow the crack is going to get bigger but I’m willing to give the product a try in the mean time. Other than that, it’s a super cute design and aesthetically pleasing in my eyes.

Really happy with my bobamate. The bottle is sleek, stylish, well designed, and relatively well built. For the price of $40, I think it is a very good purchase.
My new go-to bottle. I’ve got one in UBE (pink) and one in BOBA (black) and I use them for almost everything. Would definitely recommend.
absolutely in love with this bottle, i use it every day
- Easy to clean, Well balanced & aesthetically pleasing designed, has a powerful suction and Box packaging is unique and enjoyable to look at.
- Well hidden loop (durability not tested yet) but would prefer a strap to wrap around my wrist.
- Received my product over 7 months after the purchase. Delivery dates kept getting pushed back without automatic updates until requested.
- Wish I could maneuver the straw up and down because you’ll inhale a considerable amount of boba/pearls with barely enough fluids to wash it down with.
good quality, easy to clean, Easy to use, and
Leak free. I would definitely buy again
As the other reviews mentioned, the top and the straw are a bit hard to clean. Also, the top doesn't close all the way and leaks just a little bit. Great concept, but needs to work out some tweaks to make it all work well.
Hi Susan, thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts, we truly appreciate your feedback so that we can continue to improve. Do you mind to email us at email@example.com on the leakage? It is not normal and we'd love to help resolve this issue right away!
I LOVE the look and feel of the bottle. It's easy to clean and is pretty durable. My only complaint (and the reason I'm not giving it 5 stars) is because my bottle arrived with some minor scratches on the lid and on the pointy end of the straw. It doesn't bother me too much, as it doesn't affect the usage of the bottle as a whole, but I thought it might be worth mentioning.
Hi Leilani! We're so happy you are enjoying your bottle so far. In addition, thank you for your feedback, we will be sure to pass this onto our team
I finally got around to using my new bottles today, and it was so nice to be able to use them and not have to worry about using more plastic :) I love the design, and it's so easy to clean afterwards. I'm looking forward to using this more in the future!
Thank you so much for your kind words Joann, we can’t wait for all your boba adventures!
I love this bottle and how environmentally friendly it is! I want to thank the creators for putting so much thought in it. The only issue I have with it is that I cant seem to finish every drip of the drink and the pearls with the straw, so I still have to open the cap and drink it at the end. Also, I am unable to lift the straw up so I am unable to drink more of the tea at the start. I have no choice but to finish a lot of the pearls at the bottom first as there is where the entrance of the straw is. Overall, still a great design even though it is a lil more on the pricey side. All the best to BobaMate!
Hi Chan, thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts with us, to get every last boba we suggest inserting your straw's slanted side towards you (pointed side away from you), in addition, if you would like to drink less toppings, we suggest tilting the straw away from the toppings. Fun fact: our 360° straw becomes more flexible the more you use it (kind of like breaking into a new pair of shoes)! Feel free to give these tips a try and see if it helps!
I never felt the need to make boba at home because i wanted to not be in the house after covid but the moment I got this I instantly loved making boba and taking it on errands or for walks! It's so IMMENSELY easy to clean.
Hi Genel, thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts, we’re so happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying your bottle!
I got the boba mate because I like the concept and design of the bottle. Overall I think it's great. I've had mine leak a couple of times and not sure how that happened. Overall I like the BobaMate but I just don't like the plastic. The plastic seems to hold the flavors of things. Even with washing with mild soap sometimes I can taste hints of the soap which I think is because of the plastic because I haven't had that problem with other bottles. Love the concept though.
Thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts, we chose to create BobaMate from Tritan™ instead of glass because we wanted BobaMate to be shatter-resistant for our users. Tritan™ is BPA-free, has the look and feel of glass (even after repeated washes unlike other plastics), and is odorless! We recommend washing BobaMate with warm soapy water, a soft sponge or silicone brush, and the straw cleaner provided
I've had the bottle for about a month now and the only issue I've had with it is that the small rubber stopper on the lid kept falling off. This causes the bottle to leak if tipped or shook. Which is part of the selling point that it won't leak. If it was possible to get replacements for the rubber stoppers id say the bottle is 5 stars but atm there isn't an option to buy more. Idk if maybe my bottle was faulty since it kept falling off but it does seem like an issue that would happen with them all. Other than that the bottle is honestly perfect!
Hi Soup! Thank you for taking your time to share your thoughts, what you mentioned is not normal, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you resolve this issue right away!
Had a problem with a first bottle and thanks to the amazing customer service I got a new one. I LOVE this bottle, everything is great about it. Thank you so much!
Sadly the rubber ring broke about the hinge on the lid and the teeth of the lid that keeps it closed broke as well. I'm glad that there's an extra metal latch to keep to close as a backup tho! Overall it's a great use to an everyday thing
Hi there, we are so sorry about your bottle! This is not normal, please email us at email@example.com so we can help you resolve this issue!
This is adorable and perfect to keep in my car for whenever I might end up getting boba. Works great as a water bottle too with the built in straw. Very happy with my purchase :))
Hi Elizabeth! We’re so happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying our bottle! Hope you continue to have lots of boba :)
This product checks off all the boxes - simple, easy to clean, and the perfect size! I no longer have the guilt about all the plastic cups so now I get boba more!
Hi Chelsea, thanks for taking your time to share your thoughts! We’re so happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying our bottle and hope you continue to get lots of boba!
Looking forward to giving this to my niece who requested the bottle for her birthday gift.
