Opening alert: Teaspoon in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Sep 6, 2017
Midtown Palo Alto now has a new milk-tea option, with the recent opening of Teaspoon at 2675 Middlefield Road.

The mini Bay Area chain, which serves Taiwanese milk tea and iced tea as well as shaved snow, soft opened at the Midtown Shopping Center on Sept. 3, according to a Facebook post. Jennifer Chao, a franchisee whose brother in law founded Teaspoon, took over the space earlier this year.

The menu includes drinks like the house milk tea (blended black tea with cream) and the "lychee on lychee" (lychee black tea with lychee jelly). Customers can also customize their own drink from different tea options, toppings, cream and sweetness level.

Teaspoon Palo Alto is open noon to 8 p.m. daily.

Teaspoon also operates locations in Los Altos, Mountain View, San Jose, Milpitas and San Francisco. Chao said in a previous interview that she plans to open several more outposts this year, including in Redwood City, San Mateo and Santa Clara.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

New style Menu, no prices.

Most suitable for people who have paid over 3 million dollars in cash for their homes, preferably cash earned off of slave labor.

I wish there was somewhere to get a decent cup of tea made with boiling water poured over the tea bag with some milk rather than cream available.

@prices? - I agree that online menus without prices discourage me from trying the restaurant. What do they have to hide, especially at a casual family-friendly business?
