Kung Fu Tea

Kung Fu, in its purest essence, is the desire for self-improvement and to expand one’s capabilities beyond all limitations.

Here at Kung Fu Tea, we believe that it’s our mission to not only continuously improve our brand and beverages and the lives of our customers through providing only the most delicious, high-quality flavors but also to inspire the community to dream big and live fearlessly.

Founded in Queens, NY on April 30, 2010, we’re America’s largest bubble tea brand with over 350+ locations across the U.S. As one of the OGs of bubble tea, we maintain uncompromisingly high standards. Let’s be real. Making tea that looks good isn’t the hard part. The actual challenge is making tea that tastes good and presenting it in an innovative way. Made with the art of ‘3T’ Kung Fu, every cup of tea is freshly brewed at the perfect temperature using premium tea leaves. The beverages we bring to the table are strong inside-out — perfect for your taste buds and your Instagram stories.

Oh yeah, what’s our dream? To elevate the world of made-to-order beverages with a ‘Fresh – Innovative – Fearless’ approach and be present wherever you are (not in a Joe Goldberg type of way).

On April 30, 2018 (our 8th birthday), we founded National Bubble Tea Day to honor the growing community of people who live and breathe bubble tea while celebrating the beverage that has made our lives bubblier.

Additional Info


In 2009, entrepreneurs Michael, Allen, and Ray were walking around Flushing, Queens after returning from a trip to Taiwan. They were in search of their favorite childhood drink: bubble tea. After looking around, they found a local tea spot, ordered, and sat down to discuss new business ideas. Mid-conversation, the three of them immediately put their drinks down in confusion — the beverage was a mediocre knockoff and not the bubble tea they had come to love in Taiwan. As they observed the long line of thirsty customers, they looked at each other and that’s when Michael, Allen, and Ray discovered their new venture.

Sean was quite happy with his own bubble tea chain in Taiwan when his three friends gave him a call. They knew Sean had a knack for making an exceptional cup of bubble tea. Hours passed as Michael, Allen, and Ray attempted to get Sean on board with this new idea — though impressed by the group’s passion and proposal to share bubble tea with the rest of the world, Sean had to weigh the risks. Days passed before Sean finally gave his friends a call back, but the three of them were beyond ecstatic to hear Sean accepting the offer on the other side of the line. He was ready to join the team.
