At LIC Flea

At LIC Flea

March 30, 2015 By Michael Florio

Tea and Milk, which made a name for itself at the LIC Flea selling tea and bubble tea, opened a small eatery at 32-02 34th Avenue last Monday.

The shop offers items such as Peach White tea, Apple Green tea and Taro bubble tea. It also serves cupcakes and quarter pound cookies from City Cakes—as well as breakfast pastries and Vietnamese sandwiches.

Matthew Wong, the co-owner, said the eatery is open from 8 am to 8 pm, seven days a week, and can seat 10 people.

A grand opening event is scheduled to take place April 5th and will include dancers performing the traditional Chinese lion dance, as well as a ceremonial a ribbon cutting. It is scheduled to begin at noon.

All items in the store will be on sale during the grand opening party, which is expected to be about 3 hours long.

“It will serve as more of a greeting to the neighborhood,” Wong said.

Tea and Milk became popular after it began vending at the LIC Flea in 2013 and the Astoria Flea in 2014. The owners then decided to open a shop since they had developed a following.

“We want to be in Astoria because we have built quite a fan base here,” Wong said in December. “They’ve kept coming back to the flea [markets] for us and have supported us.”

Wong said that the Astoria location is attractive since it has a lot of foot traffic.
