A boozy tea bar in Boston will close down this month after three years in business. Limoo Tea Bar, located at 1032 Commonwealth Ave. near other Boston University staples Angora Cafe and T. Anthony’s, has been bought out of its space and will close down at the end of service on December 23, according to owner Joe Deng.
Limoo was known for its boozy teas and soju, as well as its Asian and Middle Eastern fusion. A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page thanked customers for their years of patronage and indicated that the concept will live on in some way, as the owners move on to open a different restaurant called LimeRed Tea House, which is an expansion of existing concept in Amherst and Northampton. The new spot will debut in Allston around March or April of 2017, Deng told Eater.
Like Limoo, LimeRed will serve bubble teas, although they will not be alcoholic. The restaurant will also offer bubble lattes, smoothies, macarons, shave ice, and egglet waffles served with ice cream.
Limoo will be around for a little while longer for customers to get their final tastes of teas, shawarmas, hummus, salads, and more.
