Tea Time

It’s freezing outside and we’re not even a month into winter. Visit one of these tea houses to stay warm and switch the scenery up. These quaint locations are perfect for an afternoon to cozy up with bae or to chill with your crew. Don’t be fooled, the food served at tea houses are paired specifically with the tea and will easily fill you up.

If you’re looking for a more traditional Japanese tea experience, visit Cha-An. This East Village outpost pairs tea with Japanese snacks and pastries. The chef and owner Tomoko Kato is the former apprentice to the Obama’s White House pastry chef. While wine, beer, and sake are available it’s probably best to take advantage of the extensive tea offerings. Appetizers such as tea-smoked salmon and sweet potato samosas are paired perfectly with the many varieties of tea. Cha-An also offers traditional Japanese tea ceremony starting at $15 per person on the first and third Sundays of the month.
