As you know New York City has always been a coffee town, it’s suddenly facing serious competition from a more delicate ladylike drink. Beautiful blondes aren’t the only tea fans- jet setters, pop stars and Wall Street gurus are buzzing over the leafy brew too! Facebook and Napster Co-Founder Sean Parker boasts a collection of more then 100 exotic teas, and Lady GaGa totes around a teacup like it’s a Birkin bag. New York’s fashion scene, (of course) is way ahead of the trend…duh. Almost every major designer has held a celebratory tea reception/tea party. This “chic” thing to do can also be an economic factor- instead of throwing a fancy lunch or cocktail reception; they’ll throw a tea party! Didn’t get your invite to one of these fab celeb studded tea parties? No worries- NYC suddenly has some supper sweet teashops popping up all over the city. If your in the West Village check out The Tea Set (cozy nook that seats 25), Soho home to Harney & Sons (tea store & tasting bar), and Upper East Side perfectly suits William Poll (a tea-sandwich shop).
Adding Champagne to the mix probably doesn’t dent the devotion of the young and thirsty, either. The Tea Set has created a tea-rrific $15 cocktail by mixing bubbly with syrup made from the store’s bestseller, Red Peach Vanilla tea… now that sounds like my cup of tea! After all, tea is perfect for frenzied New Yorkers with a big caffeine habit and little piece of mind. Tea promotes harmony and balance of life- drinking tea is an art of living.
