New Bubble Tea Spot “Spill the Tea” Hoping to Open Next Month

(Updated at 2:15 p.m.) A new bubble tea joint near the Braddock Road Metro station called Spill the Tea could start serving next month.

The restaurant will be located at 515 Braddock Road, in the space once occupied by the now-shuttered Aveda. The exact opening date for Spill the Tea is still TBD, however.

According to co-owner Natalie Hilunmonkul, the restaurant is finishing up some construction but plans to open sometime in December.

“We haven’t really found any other place that has a full bubble tea bar,” Hilunmonkul said of potential local competition.

The shop will focus on bubble tea, but Hilunmonkul said it will also serve food.

“For the most part, the menu will be small and simple,” Hilunmonkul said. “We’ll have classic milk teas and fruit teas, maybe seasonal items. For food, we’re keeping it simple: soups, salads, and Vietnamese summer rolls.”
