Great ambiance and they even served me a pi lo chun on a full bamboo tea tray with a gaiwan, cooling pitcher, and tasting cups. A cast iron tea kettle was presented with a little tea light underneath. It was very impressive.
My only knock on them is the tea selection. Far too many flavored teas and not enough oolongs.
As far as I know, it’s the best tea room in Philly.
Their tea selection isn’t the most unique or interesting, but I would argue that this is one of the best places in New York City to relax and chat over a pot of tea. Staff is really laid-back and you can hang out for hours.
