From a press release:
“On October 30th, 2021, Spot of Tea will host a grand opening celebration of their new permanent location at 2400 14th St NW. Founded back in 2017 as a staple of the D.C. farmer’s market circuit, Spot of Tea has spent the past two years serving one-of-a-kind tea flavors and boba out of their NoMa location. Their mission is to create a warm and inviting community of boba-ristas and tea-drinkers, in addition to serving delicious drinks. Spot of Tea will be building on this community-centered vision at their new location.
To celebrate their opening, Spot of Tea will be donating all profits on October 30th and October 31st to four DC-based non-profits centered around the different components that support a thriving community. All customers will be able to choose which of the following non-profits they would like to donate their purchase to:
AsylumWorks helps asylum seekers joining the D.C. community to establish roots by supporting them through the often long and arduous asylum process
Washington Youth Garden leads year-round gardening programs serving 6,500 local youth by partnering with schools and communities in co-creating school gardens
Calvary Women’s Services provides aid to women who are survivors of trauma, in recovery from addiction, living with mental illness, or suffering from chronic health conditions
DAWN, short for Deaf Abused Women’s Network, provides support to deaf survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. They are the only local agency providing this support in American Sign Language to DC’s deaf community, one of the nation’s largest
The grand opening celebration will be held on October 30th through October 31st from 9AM to 8PM on both days. Moving forward, Spot of Tea will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 9AM to 8PM.
