Smoothie and tea concept Tastea is planning on bringing to Torrance a brand new location, but the plans are currently on “hold,” a company spokesperson tells What Now Los Angeles. The reason behind the hold was not disclosed, though the opening is anticipated for either late this year or sometime in 2021. The company signed a lease for the 1,200-square-foot space, at 2435 Sepulveda Boulevard, in Torrance. “It’s not going to be for a long while,” the spokesperson said.
Established in 2001, Tastea has several locations in California as well as Arizona. The website also indicates that there are plans for new locations in Westminster, Sacramento, Garden Grove-Harbor, and San Diego.
The menu includes seasonal drinks like Honeydew Paradise, Cantaloupe Crush, and Tropical Bliss, which offers a mix of jasmine green tea, pineapple, orange, and guava juice. Slow-drip coffee is also available in the forms of Vietnamese iced coffee, matcha coffee, and a house special with condensed milk and a hint of hazelnut.
