I was pretty sad when I found out Kung Fu Tea Shop closed their location on Dundas and University two years ago. It was my go-to spot for bubble tea when I was downtown and I would go out of my way to get my fix.
So I was pretty excited when they finally re-opened on Spadina, with a much bigger location and definitely with more foot traffic.

Back in the day, sweetening drinks with honey was pretty rare, and I loved that Kung Fu Tea used it for all their drinks. My favourites were the Rose Milk Tea and the Tieguanyin Milk Tea, and I was excited to try them again.
Their teas are still well-made but I do miss the super crushed ice that used to come with the tieguanyin – without it, it oddly felt more diluted. Since their reopening, they have raised the prices, and they are now on-par with other bubble tea shops. Overall, I still love their drinks and need to push myself to try more of their menu.
