The former Tii Restaurant & Cafe at 801-809 Kearny St., near Portsmouth Square, has been under construction for several weeks now, and a sign has gone up saying Hanlin Tea Room is coming soon. We are told the new spot is still owned by the Ten Ren Tea company, and will serve Taiwanese food, tea and bubble tea.

We've asked the owner to contact us with further details, and will update  if we hear back. Tii Cafe opened in September of 2013 serving bubble tea, according to accounts on its Yelp pagea Chowhound post reveals the larger Tii Restaurant space never opened.
