New boba tea and Vietnamese coffee spot coming to Old Town

A new spot with coffee and boba tea is coming to Old Town.

Bloom Tea has filed an application with the Board of Architectural Review to fix up 425 S. Washington Street — repairing some windows in the back and adding new signage — to open Bloom Tea.

Owner Thao Uyen Than told ALXnow that the new location will specialize in Vietnamese coffee and boba tea.

Bloom Tea joins a small cadre of boba tea locations around Alexandria, including the nearby Pho Nam at 606 King Street.

The application is heading to the Board of Architectural Review on Wednesday, July 19. Than said there’s no firm idea yet of when the shop will open.
