Manhattan – East Village
231 E 5th St between Second and Third Aves
Manhattan, NY 10003
Step through the creaky screened door and out of Manhattan. In her round granny glasses and bandana, Elspeth, the Minnesotan owner, brings a mellow rural vibe to her knickknacked tea shop. She offers more than 85 types of tea (try spicy ginger-verbena or iced strawberry-hibiscus); and 22 "informal tea meals" featuring freshly baked vanilla cupcakes, lemon-ginger cookies and cranberry-pecan scones. While away the afternoon in an Adirondack chair or gather a dozen of your best friends for a private tea party.
