Teaquation to close Redwood City location

Uploaded: Aug 9, 2018
The owner of Teaquation in will close her first tea cafe in Redwood City on Monday, Aug. 13, to focus on a new location in downtown Palo Alto.

Mercedes Mapua, who opened Teaquation at 1036 El Camino Real in Redwood City in 2016, announced the closure on Instagram.

In an email, she wrote that the decision was "bittersweet … but moving and focusing on Palo Alto will allow us to grow the company."

She opened her second location, Teaquation Tonic, at 115 Hamilton Ave. in late June. The cafe serves tea-based drinks, cocktails and food.

Mapua said she's continuing to develop and expand the menu in Palo Alto and plans to host live music and events in the future.
