MID CITY— Uxi Duxi, a new tea room specializing in kava, a tea from the Pacific Islands known to have an extremely relaxing effect on the mind, is now officially open on Canal. The shop also serves kratom, the rather controversial opiate-like Southeast Asian plant, in tea form. The menu includes juices of the citrus variety and pretty good tea selection. Plenty of seating and the venue hosts movie and performance nights.
Status: Certified open at 4901 Canal Street, Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m to 6 p.m. (504) 290-0110. On Facebook here.
