The Top Spots to Relax With Tea in New York City

Fall in full force means a slight chill and a tough transition for the summer lovers out there. To warm you up to a new season, we put together a guide to help you relax and enjoy some new and old fashioned tea around NYC. *sips tea*

01

The NoMad

1170 Broadway, Manhattan

01

Spend a morning or afternoon in the back “library” at The NoMad Hotel. In this cozy and french-inspired room, you can enjoy small bites along with exotic teas, coffee, and fresh juices. With an intimate setting like this, it’s the perfect place to curl up and enjoy your lover’s company. Pro-tip: the library is only open to the public until 4pm daily, which is later reserved strictly for hotel guests.

02

Palm Court at The Plaza

768 5th Avenue, Manhattan

Palm Court at The Plaza

Raise those pinkies to the roof because it doesn’t get much classier than having tea at Palm Court, located in The Plaza hotel. The space itself feels like an indoor Central Park, complete with dazzling chandeliers and custom table settings. Their afternoon tea menu offers 2 fixed price options both serving small bites and an assortment of teas: the classic New Yorker Tea or for a higher end experience, the Champagne Tea menu.

03

Blank Slate Tea

121 Madison Avenue, Manhattan

Blank Slate Tea

121 Madison Avenue, Manhattan

For a more casual & quick tea setting, go to Blank Slate Tea. This small and modern, but brightly decorated cafe offers artisanal teas, tea lattes, pastries and desserts. The pink couches that match the pink floral walls are not only comfortable but also a great photo for your Instagram aesthetic.


04

Seven Seeds at The Williamsburg

96 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn

04

Try a different kind of day drinking at Seven Seeds at The Williamsburg Hotel where you can have a high quality afternoon with high tea in this colorful modern restaurant. From Friday through Sunday, you can sip on unique teas paired with a sweet pastry, or get a buzz going with their high tea cocktails.


05

Russian Tea Room

150 W 57th Street, Manhattan

Russian Tea Room

When you walk into the Russian Tea Room, you feel like you’re warped into a restaurant in the 19th century. With its bright red booths, dark green walls, and gold china, there is a feeling of enchantment and magic to this spot. Spend an afternoon for tea time (with or without champagne here!) and enjoy an arrangement of finger sandwiches, scones, pastries and cakes. P.S. they also offer gluten-free and vegetarian options.

06

Tea Drunk

123 E 7th Street, Manhattan

Tea Drunk

123 E 7th Street, Manhattan

Spend your time away from a NYC bar and try a tasting at Tea Drunk. They offer a tasting menu of three seasonal teas and you’ll learn the history behind each origin of these rare blends. The best part? You won’t get a hangover, all teas are alcohol-free.

07

Janam Tea

67 Clinton Street, Manhattan

07

At night there’s the speakeasy bar Garfunkels...but in the afternoon, this bar opens as Janam Tea. A hidden tea room that only takes reservations in advance. This spot is great for taking a digital detox and enjoying the company that you’re with. While you can snap a photo or two, everyone is encouraged to step away from their screen and enjoy their tea.

08

Bluebird London

10 Columbus Circle, Manhattan

Bluebird London

At the Bluebird London, make sure to soak your tea while you soak in a sweet view of Central Park. This restaurant feels like a gem straight out of London and brings you a high tea experience in an authentic British way. Select from an assortment of 10 teas, accompanied by finger sandwiches, scones and cakes. With the set tea menu, there are add-on options to add booze to your afternoon as well. Cheers!
