R&B Tea, a Taiwan-born tea chain known for its boba tea drinks, opened a new location June 18 at Otay Ranch Town Center in Chula Vista.

R&B has nearly 1,000 locations worldwide and is planning to open at least 20 U.S. locations before the end of this year, beginning in California. R&B opened its first San Diego County location early last year on Convoy Street in Kearny Mesa. A third local location is planned at the Shoppes at Carlsbad mall.

The chain sources its oolong teas from Taiwan, Sri Lanka and China. For details and addresses, visit
