Teaism No Longer Coming to 12th and U St, NW – Will Open Next Store in Old Town, Alexandria But Still Hopes To Come To U Street in the Future

Back in May ’11 I shared the news that the owners of Teaism were planning on opening up a fourth location on U Street (12th and U St, NW.)

I have some sad news for U streeters and some good news for those that live in Old Town, Alexandria. Unfortunately despite the landlord at 12th and U St, NW being super nice and understanding the folks at Teaism simply were unable to secure financing. Co-Owner Michelle Brown tells me that despite the fact they had “invested vast sums” they are “heartbroken” to not be able to pull off the U Street location.

The plans are now to open the fourth store in Old Town, Alexandria where a much smaller financial investment was required and a lease has already been secured. The Old Town location will open March 1st.

Ms. Brown does share some encouraging final words:

“Please don’t give up on us for U Street. We just have to regroup for our next charge!!”
