This cute little spot is about to take all our money. Conveniently located in China Town along Ring Road Kilimani, Zan Tea is a place that has been lovingly decorated by its owner and is run by her well-trained staff. On entering you’re received warmly and patiently taken through all your options each with its own clear picture so that you know what the final product is going to look like. I took along my colleague who picked the signature milk tea which is a delicious combination of fresh Kenyan milk, Kenyan and Chinese black tea and sweet squares of boba that make the ‘bubbles’ in bubble tea. I was drawn in by the mango tea which was made of white sand Chinese green tea and sweet Kenyan mangoes topped with the creamiest and smoothest cheese milk. The salty topping and sweet tea disappeared way too fast and I can say that they already have a loyal customer in me!
Their teas are just one call or a couple of clicks away but that’s not the only new thing. They have introduced the simplest and tastiest spaghetti combos. My colleague and I made our way to their main office to try these combos and we were not disappointed. Their chef marinates and slow cooks the beef to tender and flavourful perfection then pairs it with expertly cooked and seasoned spaghetti. The chicken is just as flavourful and comes in generous portions. For the vegetarians there is the option of spaghetti with green onions, carrots and a sweet slice of mango on the side that lends some sweetness to the savour spaghetti.
The KSHS. 900 combo includes a 500ml cup of bubble tea and all we can say is that you won’t regret getting a plate or two.
