If you’re looking for a fun spot to catch up with a friend, Ellicott City’s Kung Fu Tea might be it. The welcoming tea shop boasts an array of board and card games that you’re welcome to play as you sip on something sweet from the menu. Although Kung Fu Tea specializes in boba tea, its menu is vast and varied, so there’s something for every type of sweet tooth.
If you’re looking for a creamy drink, order coconut milk tea, infused with non-dairy coconut milk, black tea, and water, plus your choice of extras—such as tapioca pearls or flavored jelly. You can also go for a straight iced black, jasmine, or oolong tea, try a fruit-based tea, or indulge in one of the ever-changing specialty teas. For instance, the taro milk tea is a caffeine-free option that features the flavor of the pretty purple taro root and non-dairy milk.
