Kung Fu Tea, specializing in milk teas and other cold beverages, has opened a location in Redlands.
The Washington Post once called Kung Fu Tea the Starbucks of bubble tea. The New York-based chain calls itself America’s largest made-to-order bubble tea brand than 300 locations in the United States. Other Inland sites are in Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Riverside and Temecula.
Kung Fu Tea has a long menu that includes milk teas, fruit teas, yogurt and slushies. Toppings include the traditional bubbles, or pearls, made in-house from tapioca and brown sugar. Other choices include grape, mango and coffee-flavored popping bubbles filled with liquid; aloe and nata jelly; pudding; and red beans.
Popular beverages include Cocoa Cream Wow, made with lactose-free milk and brown sugar bubbles, and Matcha Milk Cap, topped with a sweet and salty foam Kung Fu describes as tasing like cheesecake.
The shop is at 107 E Colton Ave., Suite 200, Redlands, behind Domino’s Pizza.
