Tea Through the Week

Friday, February 24, 2012 5 No tags Permalink 0

A million ways to present and serve, and perhaps just as many varieties and blends. Just wanted to share photos from my favorite tea moments of this week. Hope you had many as well :) First, Charcoal Fire Roasted Oolong from Tung Ting, Taiwan. Served at Union Square Cafe, the tea is by In Pursuit of Tea and the teapot by For Life.

A warm cup of Nai Cha (aka milk tea) from a Mott Street bakery in Chinatown.

Pu-erh Ginger served at Van Leeuwen on 7th Street – I believe they use Rishi Tea.

A tea-cap instead of night-cap? This what April, Kayt and I did after dinner at Takashi. A pot of almond cookie rooibos and sweet nibbles, macarons and financiers.

Lots of rooibos this week. I shift from caffeinated teas to herbals and rooibos after 5pm (otherwise I can’t sleep ;) This Mélange du Cap is a rooibos tea with cocoa nibs and vanilla pods, a new tea from Le Palais des Thés. Especially soothing in the evening.

    I love tea. As much as I 'force' myself to enjoy coffee, nothing beats the blue or soothes my inner being like a cup of hot jasmine tea.

    Hi Kathy! Did you buy the new Le Palais des Ths flavor in NY or Paris? If NY, where? Thank you!

    Hi Shane! Would order it off their US website (http://us.palaisdesthes.com/en_us/)…they used to have a French site that made online ordering hard, but the new English site is a breeze ^_^

    Ah I love tea. You've probably been here, but if not, check out Radiance on… 55th (I think) between 6th and 7th. They have great puer tea. They also sell the puer tea in those compressed semi-spheres (which I happen to be drinking right now).
