Taiwanese fruit tea specialist brand, YiFang, is to launch its ninth UK site in Manchester this Spring.

The 1,700 sq ft tea emporium will open at University Green, in Manchester University,

YiFang serves all-natural, premium Taiwanese teas made with locally sourced milk and fresh fruit.

The brand has more than 1000 stores globally. This is its second UK site outside London, following Oxford.

Pokai Wang of YiFang said: “The spotlight is very much on Taiwan’s food and drink culture, and since launching our first permanent store in the UK in 2018, we have experienced an overwhelming affection for our teas. Opening in Manchester is the right step as we expand the offer across the UK, and Shelley Sandzer have no doubt found the ideal site where university students and locals alike can enjoy our teas.”

Leisure property agency Shelley Sandzer acted on the deal.
