With their experience over the years and delicious bubble tea making ability, they grab new customers daily. Reviews mention how consistent the quality is and we’re one of those reviewers too.

Kung Fu Tea

Kung Fu Tea has been a staple in the milk tea industry. Since 2009 with the business savvy minds of 3 individuals, Kung Fu Tea was born. With over 100+ locations across the United States, there’s no telling when Kung Fu tea will stop. They’re on a roll! 

This franchise brings in bubble tea, milk tea, and boba to towns and cities that you’d least expect them to be in. Talk about marketing to a new crowd, but successfully. 

Kung Fu Tea here in Columbus serves up the city like no other. It’s hard to compare this to anything else around town, unless it’s another big franchise like we mentioned earlier. Majority of customers who come to Kung Fu Tea are delighted and end up coming for more. With their wide selection of boba, all you can do is talk about boba here. If you have a hard time picking a flavor, find their best sellers on their website. 

Bubbles Tea and Juice Company

With hundreds of reviews, Bubbles Tea and Juice Company have made a name for themselves in Columbus since 2005. Yep that’s right. They’ve started even sooner than Kung Fu Tea had. Though they might not have as many locations, they’ve been able to keep up with the bigger name franchises. Why? They serve really great, consistent bubble milk tea to its customers in an intimate way. Sometimes with the growth of bigger franchises you lose that personal touch, this is where Bubbles Tea and Juice Company shines. 

They’ve been able to stay afloat serving delicious boba since 2005, that’s incredible if you ask us. 

Let us suggest some of our favorites when we stopped by as a team. 

  • Honeydew milk tea 
  • Matcha milk tea 
  • Coffee milk with boba pearls 
  • Jasmine milk tea 

Just to name a few…

The Brewed Leaf 

Last but not least, this small bubble tea cafe, The Brewed Leaf, is quite promising. 

With many great reviews, a majority of the customers that order fresh milk tea here have been happily satisfied with their order. Serving classics like Thai milk tea, The Brewed Leaf strives to be authentic with every cup. Their care for each cup is seen from how they make it to the service they provide when a customer orders a cup. 

Keep in mind if you’re looking for more extravagant flavors that you see on social media, you may not find it here. Typically this boba shop serves all the traditional flavors but if you’re looking for some instagram craze, you might not find it. Nonetheless, what’s wrong with traditional flavors anyways? 

A delicious Thai milk tea goes a long way!
