Welcome back to AM Intel, a round-up of mini news bites to kick off the day.

Drink Cold Brew Tea

After eight months of renovations, Evy Tea’s Jamaica Plain tea bar (253 Amory St., Boston) reopened yesterday. The updated space has twice the room for customers as before, with more draft lines and plenty of cold brew teas, kombucha, sparkling drinks, iced coffee, and bottomless boba for the drinks, as well as treats sourced from local businesses such as Pain d’Avignon and Fomu.

Sullivan’s Is Back in the Milk Bottle

Last summer, Castle Island’s old-timey hot dog spot, Sullivan’s, popped up inside the recognizable Hood milk bottle outside of the Boston’s Children Museum with a limited menu, and now it’s back. Stop by between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. seven days a week (11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays) now through the end of September 2018 for hot dogs, soft serve ice cream, and lobster rolls (nothing fried).

In Other Ice Cream News

There’s a new J.P. Licks in town: The local ice cream chain is now open at the South Bay Town Center in Dorchester, which is also home to a new Wahlburgers truck (and eventually a Wahlburgers brick-and-mortar location), with Midici and Gyu-Kaku locations forthcoming. This J.P. Licks location is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Necco Sells at Auction

Necco wafers and other candies from the decades-old local company are safe for now, as Necco sold at a bankruptcy auction for nearly $19 million. Ohio-based Spangler Candy Company, which is over a century old and produces Dum Dums and Circus Peanuts, bought it, and Necco will continue to operate at its Revere headquarters — at least through the end of November 2018.
