The Vietnamese based company has over 140 stores worldwide, but the Kentlands location will be their first in the United States.
It will be locally franchised and operated by Gaithersburg resident Sam Lin and his wife Susan Hsu.
I was able to sample their Kumquat Winter Melon, a flavor combination that was brand new to me, and loved it. It’s a tangy/sweet drink that makes for a perfect dessert. I also tried the Matcha (without red beans…just a personal preference). It has a creamier taste than other Matcha drinks I’ve had before. I loved this one as well, but make sure you’ve tried matcha before ordering it. It’s not a taste for everyone.
Though the sweeter drinks are my preference, you’re able to adjust your sugar and ice levels for lost drinks (30, 50, 70, and 100%).
