New York City

Where to take tea? That is the question. New York City has a plethora of fine places to take tea. From very formal high tea uptown to jasmine pearls below Canal street. You can find everything in New York because it truly is the international city.

Recommended New York Tea Rooms

Alice's Tea Cup - 102 West 73rd Street; 212-799-300. The best recommendation I can give for Alice's is that THIS is the place the locals return to over and over again. Whenever you talk to an Upper Westsider and mention Alice's, they immediately launch into a discussion about which scone is their favorite (pumpkin, coconut almond...)

Ito En New York - 822 Madison Avenue (68/69); 212-988-7111
Japanese restaurant serving tea in the afternoons; specializing in green teas. Voted Best Tea Shop by 2008 Zagat Survey New York City Gourmet Shopping & Entertaining.

The Palm Court at The Plaza Hotel - 768 Fifth Avenue at 59th Street; 212-759-3000
One of thebest afternoon teas in the US. Lovely ambiance with a soloist (harpist). Afternoon tea savories and sweets served on their traditional three-tiered trays.

Tea & Sympathy - 108 Greenwich Avenue (7/8); 212-807-8329. Cozy tea service in the Village. Stop in anytime for a very British tea. Offer their own exclusive English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Rosie Lee teas.
