I told you about the Village Tea storefront closing, and the owners re-opening it as a boba tea shop at the Southwest corner of Preston and Forest. Owner Martin Ekechukwu confirmed the new place is now open with a big grand opening celebration planned 7-10 p.m. Sept. 17. Lisa Garza of “Next Food Network Star” will be there.

I Heart Boba features more than 100 flavors of boba, and the store will be offering samples of its signature item – Orange Dream along with other goodies.
