Why Visit Us?

At West Straws, we do our best to bring you a truly exceptional international tea experience!  We brew our premium, authentic teas daily.  We maintain a complex filtering system to provide the best tasting tea experience possible.  Our milk tea recipes have been carefully crafted to perfection.  The Royal Milk Tea seems to be the favorite, but we personally enjoy the Thai Milk Tea and Jasmine Milk Tea with boba!  We make our boba fresh every 4 hours and we believe it is the absolute perfect consistency!  Our Vietnamese Coffee is brewed authentically and is a popular staple at our shop.  All of our fruit teas, smoothies, and slushes with fun add-ons are another level.  Lastly, our macaron's and macaron ice cream sandwiches are so stellar that we drive to pick them up ourselves from a family owned shop hours away!  We hope you will try them while you are here!

About Us

Nathan and Tessa Spencer,

shop owners

Hi there!  We are Nathan and Tessa Spencer.  We recently purchased West Straws from a Vietnamese couple that we value so highly.  They worked incredibly hard to bring an authentic boba tea shop experience to the Lubbock area.  We love their recipes so much that we are really trying to just not change a thing!  

A little about us...  We met in Lubbock almost 15 years ago.  It seriously is our happy place and we are living our dream raising our family here.  We have four kids that all mean the world to us.  We have a passion for traveling and getting to know and love people from other cultures.  We hope West Straws can be a space in Lubbock, TX where people from every continent can come together to share a joyful moment over a cup of boba tea.  We are seriously so glad you are here!  If you see us at the shop, please say hi!


Find us next to Jazz on 19th.
