A Braintree store that specializes in fruit-infused green teas will expand to Allston next month. Fruity has announced that it will move into the space at 77 Harvard Ave., Allston; it appears to be taking over for 89C Crepe & Ice Cream, which has apparently closed. Phone calls to the ice cream shop went unanswered Friday morning.
Fruity’s Braintree location is inside the the South Shore Plaza mall (250 Granite St.), where it serves a variety of fruit teas and smoothies, including sour mango, strawberry lemon, grapefruit, watermelon, and more. There are options with sea salt milk caps, and there are also beverages made with Yakult, a Japanese yogurt drink.
Fruity teased its new Allston store on Instagram, where it indicated a forthcoming opening in April.
Allston is already a stronghold of tea options, with places like Gong Cha, NextDoor Cafe, Kung Fu Tea, Teamoji, and LimeRed Tea House operating nearby, and others like Vivi Bubble Tea preparing to expand to the area.
Update, April 15, 2019: Fruity opened its new Allston location on April 12.
