Six to Start

1. Crazy about this new bamboo tea strainer from Lisa. It’s so elegant and carefully crafted. Designed with aesthetics and not necessarily function in mind ;)

2. Can never resist the Earl Grey gelato from Il Laboratorio del Gelato. It’s not often they have this flavor in stock, so when they do, a scoop (or pint!) is a must.

3. Oro Bakery and Bar. Forgot about this Broome St spot, but we went for sandwiches last weekend, and now I remember why I liked it here so much in the first place.

4. Sign me up for Coconut Eggnog at Donatella, yes please. There bourbon, rum, and coconut cream in this frothy elixir. Makes me all cozy inside, I love holiday drinks.

5. DavidsTea opened on Bleecker Street last week. This chain of tea shops come from Canada and it’s one of the few places in NYC that stock milk oolong.

6. Steeping Earl Grey tea leaves into hot apple cider. Simple to assemble and a decidedly addictive combination. Will be drinking this all winter.

    So cool to see a mention of Davids Tea on your blog! I work there :) and I have to say milk oolong is one of my favourite oolong's!

    Hi Kat! It is!! I always wish Bubbies back home would do more tea flavors aside from matcha.Hi Angela! Oo neato!! Are you at the WV or UES location? It's so hard to find milk oolong in NYC for some reason…so you can imagine how excited I was to see it there!!

    Unfortunately, I don't work in NYC! Although that would be amazing! I'm located in Vancouver, BC :). The vanilla oolong is really nice too! Make sure to grab a goji pop iced tea in the summer time! It's not technically a tea, but it's herbal and delicious!

    We love Il Laboratorio del Gelato! We're in the mood for any flavor they offer! And we'll definitely be trying some earl grey in our apple cider! Thanks!
