I had never heard of bubble tea, but after trying it for the first time a few years ago I was hooked. That's why I'm excited that Kalamazoo is about to get their first bubble Kung Fu tea shop opening up at 5043 West Main St, in Kalamazoo, MI. The announcement was recently made on their Facebook page, without pinpointing a solid Grand Opening date. Founded in Queens, NY on April 30, 2010, Kung Fu Tea is America’s largest bubble tea brand with over 250+ locations across the U.S.

This will be West Michigan's second location, with the other one located at 5301 S Division Ave Ste C Grand Rapids MI 49548. That location's hours are 11a-10p, so we can expect the West Main location will be reflective of those. There are 5 other locations in Michigan other than the two West Michigan locations, all of which reside in the Detroit Metro area including Rochester Hills, Sterling Heights, Canton, Novi, and an upcoming location in Bingham Farms.

What's On the Menu?

With a range of Milk Tea, Punch, Milk Cap, Classic Tea, Slush and Milk Strike, there are tons of different styles to get tea in and add ins as well, including, Tapioca, Pudding, Nata Jelly, Red Bean, Herbal Jelly, Aloe Jelly, along with Mango, Coffee, and Grape Popping Bubbles.

They also offer vegan, caffeine free, and gluten free options as well. It's a booming time for businesses in Kalamazoo and hopefully business continues to do well for all the new locations that have opened up in recent months.
