Update: Ding Tea has postponed their grand opening until further notice.
A new boba shop called Ding Tea is coming to Tampa. Ding Tea is a chain from Taiwan that has over 350 locations in Asia and has been rapidly expanding across the United States.
The menu features fresh tea, milk teas, coffee, lattes, and smoothies. A variety of Asian snacks will be sold such as popcorn chicken, Vietnamese egg rolls, durian crepes, Vietnamese spring rolls, fish balls, and more.
These food items have been a staple of most of the bubble tea shops in town such as Kung Fu Tea and Quickly.
They are known for their Tiger Milk Tea, which is a lactose-free milk with stripes of brown sugar syrup along the sides of the cup to give it a tiger stripe appearance.
Some other interesting choices on the menu are Kumquat Lemonade, Red Bean Matcha, and Cream Mousse Taro.
The new location will be located at 2202 West Waters Avenue, Tampa, FL 33604 where Got Tea and Yummy House were previously located before a fire destroyed the buildings in 2017.
Ding Tea Tampa will be open daily from 10AM-9PM, 7 days a week. The only other Ding Tea location in Tampa Bay is currently at 6248 66th Street North in Pinellas Park.
Their Grand Opening is set for Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 from 10AM-9PM. They will offer buy one, get one 50% off on all drinks and have dragon/lion dancing for guests to enjoy.
