Hakka Kitchen, an organic restaurant and tea room, is closing at 14474 Beach Blvd.

What started as her life’s passion has so overwhelmed owner Wen Raiti that she is closing her Hakka Kitchen restaurant Dec. 18.

For the past five years she has operated her organic restaurant and tea room at 14474 Beach Blvd., first as House of Leaf & Bean. She changed the name to Hakka Kitchen a year ago to pay tribute to her Hakka heritage. She is originally from Guangdong Province in China.

Raiti announced her plans to close in an email to regular customers. She also posted it Nov. 22 on the restaurant’s Facebook page.
