Kung Fu Tea finally starts brewing on Richmond Highway

(Updated, 4:15 p.m.) The Kung Fu Tea along Richmond Highway has finally started brewing.

The boba tea franchise opened its newest location in Penn Daw earlier this week. It’s next to the also newly opened Crab Cab and across the parking lot from Krispy Kreme.

Store employees told FFXnow an official grand opening is set for next month.

FFXnow first reported that Kung Fu Tea was coming to 6328 Richmond Highway over the summer, set to replace a dry cleaner.

Co-owner Wes Ky told FFXnow that the reason they decided to open along Richmond Highway is because of the revitalization efforts and the new development that’s been happening in the corridor. Ky said they’ve been looking for a spot in Alexandria for more than three years and finally settled on this location, despite the space being a bit bigger than they initially wanted. But the opportunity to open along a main thoroughfare like Richmond Highway was too good to pass up, he said.

Ky also co-owns two other franchise locations in Springfield and Burke.

Kung Fu Tea is known for its boba (or bubble) tea and coffee. The first shop opened in Queens, New York in 2010. The company claims to be “America’s largest bubble tea brand.

The chain has nearly 400 locations nationwide and appears to be expanding, including one that just opened in Ballston in Arlington last month.
