Kinship Milk Tea Reviews
LOVED the earl grey flavor! I often find that packaged milk teas tend to be overly sweet, and Kinship has the perfect amount of light, pleasant sweetness. The bottle design is really aesthetically pleasing, and I can't wait to try other flavors. I usually find Kinship to be sold out pretty quickly in local Austin retailers.
I'd love more flavors, and potentially a wider range of sizes (bulk sizing as well as a smaller taster size).
I love, LOVE Kinship — all of the flavors are delicious, though my particular favorite is the Wuyi Oolong. It's got a kick of caffeine without the jittery coffee feeling. It's always a treat to have one, plus, I love that the brand is local to Austin and woman-owned.
I want to be able to buy them by the case so I can keep my fridge stocked for the week!
There are those days you don't want to make your own tea. As a vegan, premade milk-based teas and lattes are hard to come by. So when I stumbled on Kinship Milk Tea, I was instantly drawn to the bottle. I tried the Earl Grey oat milk tea because it's a classic and it tasted amazing! The flavor of the Earl Grey Tea was floral and strong. I also loved supporting a local woman-owned business and bonus points for the recyclable glass bottle packaging. I will definitely be adding this to my beverage rotation.
I would love to see an unsweetened version!
Drinking Kinship Milk Tea is one thing, but experiencing the brand as a whole just completes the puzzle. All of their teas are heavenly, delicious, energizing, and smooth. They are the perfect blend of that addicting faint sweet taste and natural tea flavor. My personal favorite is the Wuyi Oolong Milk Tea. Just try it, trust me. What Kinship and Founder, Caitlin, are building is unmatched. Their branding is strong, they a so much fun to follow on Instagram, their packaging is outstanding — I can’t say enough about this brand and am stoked to see where they grow next! In the meantime, give it a try! You won’t regret it. In fact, you’ll thank me ;)

These teas are delicious. It takes a lot for me to drink anything but water, but these teas have the perfect blended taste of earthy with a hint of sweet. I find myself craving them often these days. Go get it!
You can really taste the teas in all of these, doesn't just taste like drinking flavored sweet milk. Love the earl grey, a really floral and balanced, not too just sweet enough.
Lapsang Souchong is understandably very smoky, just aheads up to those unaware. I would also love this product even more if it was a little creamier. I think the oat milk makes it drink a little thin.
My whole family loves this tea. I don't usually think of cold tea as being comforting, but it is! Just the right amount of sweetness and creaminess. And the flavor is delicious.
Well, some day there may be more flavors, but for now it is pretty perfect. We know the founder and her family--more excellent folks you couldn't hope to meet.
