It appears that a new boba joint is landing in Sawtelle Japantown. There’s window paper up on a storefront at 1642 Sawtelle that used to be the home of a hookah lounge. Tea Mug Boba is promising tea, coffee, and smoothies that are made fresh daily.
There’s a cheery new specialty drinks shop that slipped into a quieter section of Sawtelle Japantown. The Bay Area’s Teaspoon is now in soft opening at 1947 Sawtelle Blvd. Unit E and pouring drinks that “blend together fresh flavors with traditional boba tea culture”. Their Grand Opening will be on August 7th at 12pm, when the first 100 customers will get a free drink in a Teaspoon bamboo bottle.
