Tea Barrel Replaces Gingko House in Alhambra

Boba, drinks, snacks, etc. Perhaps most notable for the fact that they're scraping the bottom of the barrel for names of these tea and drink places. 405 W. Main St.
I actually came here awhile back, saw it after leaving kosuke and had to try.
I really liked the theme, but it's a bit too small and the tea was just ok.
That location housed numerous tea houses/snack shops/etc that all eventually failed. I wonder how they will do being just another ok tasting tea house in an area where there is something just like them (or better) on the next block.
Tea station is just a block away and they're always packed like sardines.
Of course, I don't mind another tea house.. the problem is.. each teahouse that opens doesn't seem to offer anything significant over the other tea houses (not in taste, flavor, choices, etc) other than decor. (see muse).
I'm actually begging for a new trend from asia, I wonder what that will be.
