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 :)
