Delicious milk tea! I stopped by this place after lunch at the Sichuan place in the same plaza in hope of the sweet icy drink can wash down the spiciness. I was not disappointed.
The Kung Fu Tea's interior was clean and there was a long line around 2 pm on Sunday. There were also a lot of teenagers hanging out in the store - in contrary to more family oriented "You know where" store across the plaza.
The line moved pretty quickly and we ordered regular Kung Fu Milk tea. I was sold in the first sip - the tea was rich and came with subtle tea flavor. And their tapioca was so good! I've tried so many tapioca places in the Chinatown, most of them came out as uncooked/hard/too soft to chew. So I lowered my expectation, but the tapioca from the Kung Fu Tea place I ordered were cooked well, chewy, and sweet at the same time.
Kung Fu Tea has quickly become one of my favorite boba spots in Houston. Though their cup sizes are slightly smaller and at a higher price than other locations, I just enjoy the taste much more. You can actually taste the flavor of your tea (wow, shocker) in your milk tea. It isn't overpowered by cream or sugar syrup. Also, the boba has a nice subtle sweetness to them! My go-to drink is the golden oolong tea/milk tea, depending on my mood.
As for service, I've personally never had any problems with the employees here. They have always treated me nicely.
Kung Fu Tea is one of the more popular places to grab tapioca in Houston and I can see why. Their drinks are flavorful and the tapioca pearls are made well. I ordered the black milk tea and it was so good ! Their taro milk tea is good too.
If you're looking for a place to study or catch up with friends, there's many tables to lounge around in.
If you want to try something different from a traditional boba tea but still want something similar, definitely for Kung Fu Tea's Wow Milk! Even if you aren't aiming for its specialty drink, you will not be disappointed with this greatly-improved chain boba shop!
This Kung Fu Tea is my favorite boba place in Houston. The milk tea, grapefruit green tea, and passion fruit green tea are my three favorite drinks when I come here.
I've been to many boba places, and Kung Fu's milk tea is definitely the best in my opinion. It tastes just like the milk tea in Taiwan, and the tapioca is slightly chewy and has a sweet swallow.
Highly recommend if you are craving some boba in the Chinatown area!
I'm not a typical milk tea person. I highly recommend the peach oolong tea or the yogurt grapefruit. Both are quite refreshing. The employees are awesome. If you don't know what you're ordering they look at you like you're stupid. I'm sorry I don't know what bubble topping means.
Drinks are amazing! My favorite is Citron tea, it's so good. You should definitely it a try. This is a good place to go to if you want to have a casual hangout with a big group of friends. You can be as loud as you want and they won't mind, haha. However, this makes it hard for you to study here as it can get pretty loud. Very clean environment and furniture. I love crashing on the couch, extra comfortable! And lively cashiers!
