Jason Tan, the Co-Founder of NUTTEA, said: “We’re so excited to finally open our first Australian café in the heart of Melbourne – the city of dreams. Especially as the hospitality sector looks towards a re-opening of trade in time for summer. This is our first flagship store in Australia, and we’re thrilled to call ELLA home to one of the most celebrated vegan bubble tea brands in Asia. Although we are opening during unprecedented times, it has given us the opportunity to offer Melburnians another reason to come back to the CBD and bring Melbourne back to life, once restrictions ease.”
