A fruit tea spot named after a family matriarch is coming this month to Fairfax.

Yifang Fruit Tea, a family-owned business, plans to open a nearly 2,000-square-foot location at Fairfax Court (11282 James Swart Circle) within the next two weeks, business representative Dave Chen tells FFXnow.

The business prides itself on serving teas made from natural ingredients and inspired by three generations of “family farming,” lead to a unique understanding of how to “get the best floors out of the fruit they harvest,” according to the shop’s website.

Its recipes were crafted by the owner’s grandmother, Yi Fang, who married a young farmer and relied on planting pineapples for a living.

Fang happened to braise golden pineapples into a homemade jam, resulting in what soon become popular drink: Yi Fang fruit tea.

The current owners have put the “early-Taiwan epitome, historic memories and warm hospitality” into its drinks, according to a company statement.

“We are not your typical bubble tea shop,” the owners write.

Options on the menu include a brown sugar pearl black tea latte, grass jelly tea, roselle lemonade, and jelly lemon green tea. The company has one other location in Georgia.

“We picked this location because of the sound demographics and the George Mason University,” Chen said.

The location will also have a Kenta Ramen machine, which automatically cooks ramen.
