I appear to have timed this well by visiting shortly before Hannah Goldfield's glowing review of this West Village tea room in the New Yorker, though it was already popular enough a month ago that our party of three had almost a half hour wait, killing time at the cute bookshop down the street. That's largely due to its tiny size and how much people tend to linger in this serene space rather than a mob of tea seekers. I'm a newbie to tea culture, but you can tell it's the real deal, with plenty of detail on the teas in a nice leather menu and careful attention to re-steeping. They specialize in oolong here, which happens to be my favorite. We tried two and they were quite distinct from each other and delicious. Pricing is on the high end-- I think each pot was $10 to $15. We also had some small snacks. My friends split their pork dish, which was small for the price but elegantly rendered. I had a special roasted yam dish that wowed me with its simplicity, straddling the line between savory and sweet, drizzled with olive oil and flecked with salt. It's one of those dishes that just is what it is, and you can taste the way the components combine in a very honest way. It feels charming rather than lazy. The atmosphere is lovely-- it feels a bit library-like when you walk in, though most people end up speaking at a normal volume. Service is very on top of it. The only knock against this is that the price is quite high for the simple experience, so you can quibble about the true value. However, I judge it to be a unique New York experience (and don't dare mess with their rare 5 star status).
This is the kind of hole in the wall that you brag about finding to your foodie coworkers. My friend brought me here for a quiet tea and brunch, and when I got to the address, I wasn't sure if I had the right place. It looked like an apartment building. When you walk into the building, you turn right into a plain door, and then you see it. The setting is homey and unpretentious, save for the dried artichokes on the table, which are admittedly very attractive. We started with the summit tea, which had a strong barley flavor and light caramel scent, accompanied by the pineapple linzer. The couple sitting next to us ordered the linzer as well and proclaimed "I've never enjoyed a cookie this much in my life." While I wouldn't go that far, my friend and I had a great time dissecting the flavors (flakes of dried seaweed!), a game we would continue throughout the meal. We continued with the chilled asparagus, and then the braised pork rice bowl with egg. Flavors were at once familiar and exotic. The rice bowl brought me back to similar dishes served on the street in Bangkok's Chinatown. The asparagus to cloth napkin restaurants in Shanghai. The couple next to us showed us the New Yorker review they'd torn out of the magazine, which details the chef's background at Per Se. No wonder. The food, like the setting, is unpretentious but winking with intrigue. I hope to come back soon!
Super cute spot. There's not a lot of seating, but you can always get some tea from the "bar" area  while you're waiting! Loved just hanging out here on a Saturday afternoon with hubbs. Staff are friendly.  I'm a tea monster and the iron goddess tea was great.  The minced pork rice was an interesting addition to have as an option. It's a bit expensive, but tasty.  Loved the sweet and savory pineapple linzer! Where can I buy those in bulk... Will definitely return sometime with friends!
