A bubble tea shop whose first Orlando location at The Mall of Millenia opened last year, is currently working on its second local restaurant, this time in downtown Orlando.

The restaurant will feature a large selection of teas, including fresh, fruit, hot and milk variants, as well as a variety of other drinks like lattes, slushes, and aloe vera fruit juices.

In addition to its drinks, the restaurant will offer various street food snacks, poke bowls, baos, and banh mi sandwiches.

Although the hours for the new location have not yet been released, the other Orlando location is currently open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to. 9 p.m., staying open until 9:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Started in 2004 by Xu Wei-xiang, the Ding Tea brand is franchised throughout the world, including over 100 locations in North America. The organization’s first location in Orlando opened at 4680 Millenia Plaza Way last year.

Ding Tea joins a slate of new restaurants in Orlando, and specifically downtown, that are in various stages of construction. That includes Taco Kat, which is currently building out its new restaurant in the former Cleo’s Lounge at 11 S. Court Avenue.
