EvyTea Going National, Opening Second Tea Bar Thanks to $1 Million from Investors

Local Amory Street business EvyTea is expanding its production, distribution and will open a second tea bar thanks to $1 million of investment funding. Evy Chen created the cold-brewed tea business in 2012 with a production location in South Boston. EvyTea eventually grew out of that space and moved to its Jamaica Plain location to continue its brewing production, and also added a popular brick and mortar tea bar. EvyTea raised the $1 million in funding through the crowdfunding platform CircleUp, according to BostInno. Along with increasing production, EvyTea will open a restaurant in Charlestown.
