Cassava’s website says:
“We make great refreshments that you will feel good about drinking. Created with high-quality, organic, and locally sourced ingredients. Our boba teas and Vietnamese coffee are combined with a mixture of tapioca pearls and honey to add a sweet, filling texture, transforming these humble drinks into delightful treats. We’re so driven to create products that taste natural, unlike the typical powder-based drinks, that we take the time to understand and learn about our ingredients, which is how we found the word Cassava: the root which tapioca comes from.

I am wondering if your readers have any information on the never-ending Heritage Foundation construction project at 3rd & Mass Ave NE, near Union Station and the H Street Corridor.
I live in a nearby apartment building, and while property management does its best to keep tenants updated, we’ve been putting up with construction sounds beginning at 6 AM, dumpsters and debris lining the street, increased rodent presence, and torn up sidewalks since work on the building began in January 2016 – also when the beloved “Bagels & Baguettes” closed as a result of the construction.
