In an email, she wrote that the decision was "bittersweet … but moving and focusing on Palo Alto will allow us to grow the company."
She opened her second location, Teaquation Tonic, at 115 Hamilton Ave. in late June. The cafe serves tea-based drinks, cocktails and food.
Mapua said she's continuing to develop and expand the menu in Palo Alto and plans to host live music and events in the future.
