Pop’s vision is to provide authentic, playful, high-quality bubble tea while supporting the Asheville community and uplifting Asian culture. Its multi-cultural team of Eva Peterson and Ashley Garrion is a wonderful example of the collaboration between Eastern and Western experience and knowledge. In keeping with that, Pop’s menu contains loose tea leaf and many toppings sourced directly from Taiwan as well as many sourced locally or made in house. Milk teas, Pop’s most popular menu item, are made with whole or oat milk, and tapioca is cooked daily for the ideal QQ texture. Lots of vegan options too! Free WiFi.
