Sip a Smoothie With a Water View at Panda Tea House

Whether you need a sweet start to the morning or an afternoon pick-me-up, Panda Tea House is a spot you must try. Located right on Waterfront Street in National Harbor it’s centrally located for a fun outing and you can enjoy your treats while looking out at the water. If you’re going to start your day, grab a bubble tea to-go or a fresh fruit smoothie made with mango, banana, or even avocado for an extra creamy smoothie. They add real fruit and then you can increase the sugar level as you would on a boba tea if that strikes your fancy. 

For an afternoon visit, go for the desserts! They have Thai rolled ice cream which they magically mold on a frozen surface right in front of your eyes. Tasty favorites include the mango madness, the unicorn which is topped with colorful fruity pebbles, and cookie monster with all the Oreos and chocolate drizzle. They also have bubble waffle sundaes if you’re looking to go all out. You choose a waffle, add ice cream, and all the toppings your heart desires.
