BIZNOTE: Sharetea to open in West Seattle this spring

Though the sign went up recently, Sharetea has had the former Jefferson Square Baja Taco site in its sights for almost a year. A reader first pointed out to us last May that the Sharetea website mentioned it; we tried contacting the company for comment, but got no reply, and saw no sign of activity at the site in subsequent months. But then came the signage. We finally reached someone associated with the new location today, and they told us they’re hoping to open in mid-May, pending permits, but are still finalizing other operational details such as hours/days. Sharetea – founded in Taiwan almost 30 years ago – specializes in Boba Tea, with more than 300 stores in 16 countries.

     So excited for this! It’s about time that a great boba place is here in WS!

    Yay!!!  Cannot wait for a good boba tea place.  WS is long overdue.

      Pearls on delridge is great if you want your fix sooner.

    Ok that’s wild cause I just saw the sign today and wasn’t sure if this meant they were really coming or not. This is great news, I love ShareTea and glad we will have a place to get real bubble tea.

    super exited as well.  I used to go weekly when I worked at Redmond Town Center but I am now work from home for the foreseeable future so I have two options.  I am totally going to Pearls tomorrow (thanks for the tip!) and will visit ShareTea when in the area.I used to love the old taco place but boy, it went downhill and we have so many great taco trucks and good restaurants.  Bubble tea for all!!!

    Yay!  I do love Pearls though so my loyalty will be tested!  Maybe I just have to drink double the bubble tea so that I can try this new place.

    For anyone else trying to figure out the location, it’s 4740 42nd Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116

    The problem with Pearls is that they are not open late enough. Every Sharetea I have been to is open until at least 8PM, I am expecting at least the same and hopefully later for this store!

    Oh’s Sandwiches on California next to the Swinery has great bubble tea and Vietnamese sandwiches too.
