This is an excellent place to go beyond the tea bag from your local grocer. The establishment itself, a bit formal with its antique furniture in dark wood, marble floors, and an antique tea counter, evokes old China. It is a perfect setting to sample rare teas like the delicate, airy flavor of silver needle white tea, the peachy smokiness of oolong, and the pungent and earthy pu'erh (not for the timid). A tea master can suggest what will suit you best, discuss the finer points of tea production, if you like, and then serve you a superbly brewed pot that you will be encouraged to linger over. There are traditional Chinese tea snacks available, including dim sum, cookies and rice crackers.
