Since the mid-2000s, this tea shop has been making its rounds and opening up in multiple countries, and now the Taiwanese tea house Ding Tea is opening its first Tucson location at 2739 E. Speedway Blvd.
Right now, the nearest Ding Tea is up north in Tempe, but in the following months, it’ll officially open its doors in the spot that formerly housed Xoom Juice.
The tea house focuses on boba tea, milk tea, juices, Yakult — a sweetened probiotic milk beverage — and coffee. The new shop will be joining the ranks of other tea spots in the area like Transit Tea, which is just a few buildings east on Speedway.
There isn’t an exact opening date but expect it to open sometime in Fall 2021.
