KOI TEA Franchise


We are the one and only Koi Tea.

Making artisan boba drinks and ice cream rolls with a twist here and there. All of our teas, boba, and ice cream are made fresh eryday, all day “luong”. We aren’t afraid of testing new drinks or branching off to other parts of the world for great recipes. What we are not is a Singaporean bubble shop (KOI Thé / KOI Cafe), a restaurant in NYC (Koi), or some other random franchise. We’re a small [but mighty] business.

Got a Cause To Raise?

If your group is in need of extra cash, host a fundraising event at our store. Once the event is over, we donate 10% of the proceeds to your crew. Visit the Community page and tell us which nights you would like to collaborate.

Global Presence - The Founding of KOI


Global Presence – The Founding of KOI

KOI Café was finally founded in 2006. The focus on quality and the signature heart-warming hospitality were successfully brought overseas with the opening of the first Singapore outlet in 2007.

In 2015, in order better convey our brand philosophy and to nurture tea culture, Ms. Khloé Ma officially changed the brand name to KOI Thé to put an emphasis on tea.

Happiness is to share special moments with friends.

A celebration, a date or just a relaxing break in the day, there is always a reason to get together around a cup of KOI tea. KOI brings joy to the world. Freshly brewed tea and flavorful ingredients, prepared with passion are the key to KOI’s authentic taste and the reason why people come back again and again.

We surprise and we enchant.

In each and every KOI store, we are keen to share our happiness and love of tea with you. We do our best every day to make your experience memorable.
Hear the sound of tea being brewed, of ice being crushed, and of laughter.
Smell the aroma of our freshly prepared ingredients.
Be excited by the chewiness of our milk tea pearls.
Enjoy the fun and comfortable surroundings.
And the warmth of our tea shakers.
With KOI, happiness happens naturally.
