Developer Josh Adler tells Y&H colleague Lydia DePillis that Asian-themed chai and Bento box hub Teaism has officially signed a lease for a new location at the Moderno condo building, located at the corner of 12th and U Streets NW. The retail signing had been rumored since late May. With the addition of the new U Street corridor digs, Teaism now has a foothold in four coveted D.C. neighborhoods, with Dupont Circle, Penn Quarter, and the Lafayette Park area already in the mix.
