Business Spotlight: Kung Fu Tea

Writer & Photographer / Fredda Kovacs

Kung Fu TeaBoba tea. Bubble tea. Milk tea. No matter what you call it, one thing is certain – its all the rage these days. And its now available on Indys southside. Katie La, a resident of Center Grove, opened Kung Fu Tea in late March. 

To satisfy her craving for the tasty tea, La routinely made the trek to Chicago, as that was the closest location offering authentic bubble tea. Recently, however, she learned of a place in Plainfield. One visit and she was wowed. 

Boba tea is a traditional Taiwanese drink,” she says. “The tea is mixed with milk or fruits and topped off with chewy tapioca pearls. Those bobaor bubblesare boiled until tender. We make our bubbles every two hours and brew our tea every four hours. Using fresh, premium ingredients and our attention to detail in the crafting process is what makes our teas exceptional in quality and in taste.” 

Aside from being delicious and healthy, the texture and endless variety of combinations makes enjoying Kung Fu Tea a unique experience. Categories such as Milk Cap, Milk Strike, Classic, Punch, Slush, Milk Tea, Yogurt and Espresso are served daily. Kiwi flavor has recently been added to the Slush and Punch lines. Toppings include pudding, nata jelly, coffee jelly, red bean, mango jelly and more.  

Kung Fu TeaAn interesting line of snacks is available with Dragon Pop and Candy Boba.

La, who also owns Royal Spoil Spa & Nails in the Meridian Parke Shopping Center, is committed to Center Grove and the surrounding area. Her daughter Bella Tran is a sophomore at Center Grove High School who participates in marching band and is company manager in the Accents Choir.   

Being a hands-on owner of Kung Fu Tea Greenwood allows Bella and me to work together to build a business,” she says. Bella loves to bake and create drinks. Shes also very social and naturally friendly. Bella can learn about business, customer service, and the importance of quality and community. Kung Fu Tea Greenwood is a place where she and others can socialize in a safe and comfortable environment.”  

Business hours are Monday-Thursday, 11 am to 8 pm; Friday-Saturday, 11 am-8:30 pm; Sunday, 12noon-6:30 pm.

Kung Fu Tea is located at 8721-A U.S. Highway 31 South in Indianapolis. Fo more information, call 317-893-4401 or visit facebook.com/kungfuteagreenwood.
