Go Ahead, Be Koi About It: Teahouse Offers a Different Kind of Happy Hour


That’s the vibe people get from even just scrolling the social media accounts of Koi Tea. The bubble tea shop offers the obvious, along with fruit tea, slushies, smoothies and Vietnamese coffee.

What is bubble tea? Picture a nice, frothy beverage with a tea base and flavors shaken in along with sweeteners or milk. The “bubbles” are pearls typically made with tapioca.

The shop, 2160 W. Grand River Avenue, Suite 2 in Okemos, presents as an Instagrammable photo op with a pleasant atmosphere of plants and a flower wall, along with a bevy of tea choices.

If you’re unfamiliar with Koi Tea, its popularity has risen mostly likely due not only to the huge range of options available in bright, happy shades but the ease in customizing the beverages for just the right taste.

Owner My Tien Tran said the most popular flavor is brown-sugar milk tea. Oh, and it makes a beautiful picture for your own social media, as long as you take the picture quickly!
