CHANGSHA, China, July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Urban Tea Inc. (the "Company," "we" or "Urban Tea") (NASDAQ: MYT), a premier retailer of specialty teas and baked goods based in Hunan, China, today announced the date of the grand opening of MENO, a specialty tea and coffee house, in West Village near Washington Square Park in Manhattan, New York City. The grand opening will take place on Saturday August 1st, 2020. MENO's opening will mark the arrival of the Company's first overseas tea house, bringing New Yorkers a variety of specialty teas, coffees, juices, other drinks and light snacks/meals.

"We are excited to celebrate the opening of our first overseas tea house MENO, as part of our international expansion plan," said Long Yi, Chief Executive Officer of Urban Tea. "In the fast-paced New York City, MENO aims to provide a sanctuary for guests to take a rest, slow down, and truly appreciate the simple pleasures found in a cup of tea or coffee."

MENO is designed as a quaint and stylish space, decorated with modern and traditional Asian styles. It is bathed in white and includes light wood-style seating and small tables. MENO has a 15-seat capacity and currently planned to be open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST. Takeout and delivery options will be available via delivery platforms such as GrubHub, UberEats, HungryPanda and ChowBus.

All the items found on the menu are inspired by the tea and coffee products of our "Buoyance Manor" stores in China, customized to fit the New Yorkers' palate and aesthetic. The menu offers Coffee Meets Juice, a one of a kind, curious and delicious mixture of different freshly squeezed juices and coffee; Dark teas, MENO's absolute specialty, are one of the most ancient types of teas from China and are rarely found in New York City. The teas, which can be served hot or cold, have undergone microbial fermentation for up to eight years; Fresh Milk Teas, served hot or cold and made with organic whole milk, come in three varieties including peach-flavored oolong tea, honey-flavored black tea, and Jasmine-flavored green tea; Cheese Foam Fruit Teas are served cold and made with fruit slushies and fine green tea, topped with a frothy layer of milk and cream cheese, and sprinkled with salt for a sweet and savory sip; Coffees are also spotlighted, using premier blends from Counter Culture Coffee with options such as Espressos, Americanos, Lattes, Cappuccinos, Iced Americanos and Iced Lattes. 

Additionally, a small curated food menu is also provided as the perfect complement to the beverages with savory choices like Smoked Chicken Breast Salads and Beef Bologna Sandwiches.
