Playa Bowl Filling Former Capital Teas Spot in Merrifield

A takeout eatery is getting ready to move into the Mosaic District space that previously belonged to Capital Teas.

The tea retailer’s spot at 2910 District Avenue, Suite 168 closed in the summer along with all of its other stores when Capital Teas Inc. filed for bankruptcy in August, an employee told Tysons Reporter. In October, Anchor Beverages took over the brand, and Capital Teas is now just selling its products online.

The vacant spot is getting prepared for a new takeout food establishment named Playa Bowl, according to a building permit.

A similarly named franchise called Playa Bowls serves up acai bowls, poke, smoothies and juice. It is unclear whether the franchise is the same future Mosaic District tenant.

Playa Bowls and EDENS, the retail real estate owner behind the Mosaic District, did not return inquiries from Tysons Reporter.
