A new bubble tea shop, called Gong Cha, is coming to Annandale.
It isn’t expected to open until the end of 2018 or early 2019, but you can get a preview next months, as Gong Cha will offer some of its tea drinks at the Taste of Annandale.
The shop, to be located at 4220 Annandale Road next to Kogiya Korean BBQ, will feature Asian tea drinks, such as bubble tea, milk tea, and its specialty, “Gong Cha milk foam series.” Teas come in various flavors, such as passionfruit, taro, chocolate, lemon, watermelon, and mango, to name a few, plus optional toppings, like grass jelly, coconut jelly, red bean, and others.
Later on, probably next spring, the menu will be expanded to include waffle desserts and ice cream, says franchisee Kevin Tran.
The Gong Cha company was established in Taiwan in 2006 and since grown to nearly 1,500 outlets worldwide. The Annandale shop will be the first one in Virginia.
