Kung Fu Tea Review

Kung Fu Tea is a new business that recently opened a location in Lake Forest. They are located where the old subway used to be across from the Shell gas station. The shop has seating around the whole space with a counter and drink preparation area that welcomes customers to watch the employees prepare their drinks.

Kung Fu Tea offers drinks such as milk tea drinks, slushies, punch flavors, and many more.

To go with their numerous drinks, they have toppings that fit perfectly with every drink such as wow bubbles, mango popping boba, herbal jelly, and many more.

There are definitely a few drinks that are really good, like the Honey Oolong Milk Tea, and a few that are not so good, such as the Taro milk Tea, because they leave a strange aftertaste and are incredibly sugary. 

Do not let the look of the Taro Milk Tea deceive you, there are much better options (Image from kungfutea.com).

Most of the green tea drinks have a strong and sometimes overwhelming green tea flavor, so I recommend the Yogurt Green Tea because the yogurt tones down the green tea flavor.

No matter what, do not get the red bean drinks. They are absolutely horrible and disgusting. Never ever get red beans in any drink, which goes for pudding and herbal jelly as well. Some people get the taro and other drinks that I don’t recommend because it’s just a preference, but the red bean, pudding, and herbal jelly drinks should not be consumed by anyone.  All of the other drinks are pretty good and safe options. However, most of the drinks are either pretty fruity or sugary, so I recommend either getting less sugar or less fruit in your drink. 

Currently, the popular drinks for middle schoolers in Lake Forest are the Oreo Slush or Oreo Wow (The Oreo Wow from kungfu tea.com).

If you’ve never had boba before, I recommend the Class KF Milk Tea with boba, which has lactaid-free milk and black tea with sugar and ice because you could enjoy it in the morning or at night or during any time of the year. Albeit a basic drink, it is a good, tasty option. For a light honey taste, I’d add in the honey bubbles.  

If you’re not yet ready for a “boba” drink, you could go the fruity route with a strawberry lemonade with mango popping boba. This drink is made with water, strawberry jam, and lemon juice. When all the flavors are blended together, the strawberry lemonade is very refreshing, and the mango popping adds in the excitement of a boba drink with a more fruity taste.

They’re grand opening was from Feb. 16 to Feb. 18 with a buy one get one free for some of their most popular drinks, like their Kung Fu Milk Tea, Winter Melon Tea, Passionfruit Green Tea, Cocoa Cream Wow, and Honey Oolong Tea.

Though only a few of their drinks were offered with the buy one, get one free deal, the business encourages customers to try whichever flavor they are drawn to.
