‘The Whale Tea’ Bubble Tea Shop Opens On East Beaver Avenue

A new bubble tea shop has opened in downtown State College.

Located at 262 E. Beaver Ave., The Whale Tea opened in the former location of Frutta Bowls. Frutta Bowls closed in 2020 during the pandemic after a little over a year in business.

The Whale Tea will serve a variety of beverages, including traditional milk tea, whale crystals, crème brûlée, fresh fruit milk tea, milk foam fresh tea, slush, oolong tea, and more. Prices range from $4.75 to $7.25 depending on the size and type of tea.

The Whale Tea is open noon to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday.

The Whale Tea is originally from Nanjing, China, and has about 300 locations in the country. The franchise has a few locations in various parts of Connecticut, and one in Boise, Idaho. The shop has plans to expand to other parts of Connecticut and the New York/ New Jersey region.

The Whale Tea joins Poke Fresh, a Hawaiian poke bowl restaurant, that opened earlier this week.

We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
