Don’t forget to enter my KRAVE Jerky giveaway! Ends tomorrow night!
Kung Fu Tea is a bubble milk tea chain that recently opened an outpost in San Diego – its first in Southern California. I first tried Kung Fu Tea’s drinks in Chicago a couple of years ago and also had it in Boston last year, and I really liked some of their drinks, so I was excited that we were getting a store, too!
The interior is bright and had some pretty nice decor. I shared a photo on Instagram of some of their artwork, which was apparently done by a former employee at the Las Vegas location.
Sorry for the horrible pic of the menu… there’s a better menu on the website. Prices are about the same as other milk tea shops in San Diego – $2.75-$3.50 for regular-sized drinks, $3.50-$5 for large, with additional charges if you want toppings.
One of their signature drinks here is the White Gourd (aka winter melon) Milk Tea. There’s actually no caffeine in it – it’s actually traditionally made with slices of winter melon, boiled with sugar and caramel for hours. Normally it’s not a drink that I thought would go well with cream, but actually it turns out to be quite tasty!
My other favorite drink here is the Oolong Milk Tea – I like that their drinks have a strong tea flavor. FYI, they have three types of tea to serve as the base for most of the their drinks: Earl Grey black tea, jasmine green tea, and golden oolong tea. S doesn’t like Earl Grey or oolong milk tea, so he actually doesn’t have as many options here as other milk tea shops… haha. He really likes the White Gourd Milk Green Tea here, though. As far as the toppings, I’ve only tried the boba, which was okay – the honey taste was pretty strong, which wasn’t my cup of tea (heh).
Anyway, I’m happy that we now have a Kung Fu Tea! They are currently in the soft opening stage right now, with the grand opening happening this weekend! There will be a buy one get one free promo for certain drinks – check out the flyer below. Hooray for more milk tea shops in San Diego!
