I was in New York, and was looking for tea shops, and realized that this was my opportunity to try out Argo, which I’ve read about on several occasions.
I adored it! It really was like a starbucks for the tea drinking set. They had excellent food options (even vegan ones!) and had both speciality drinks (like starbucks lattes) based on tea and straight steeped teas.
I decided that since I didn’t have any options like this at home, I’d go with a fancy drink and got the seasonal FrosTea. It was really good! It was a lot like candy; more sweet than tea-like, but that’s just how the frou frou coffee drinks are at the other shop. And I’ve often seen teenagers get into coffee by starting with frou frou coffee drinks, so maybe this is a way to hook folks on tea as well. :)
Anyway, fun place! I’ll be sure to swing by next time I’m in Chicago or New York!
