Subtle Tea in New York, New York

After MilitiaJim finished work he and I headed to SubtleTea for tea and dinner.

The store was skinny and long, and had tea for sale but I wasn’t quite sure how to buy it (ask the staff? Find a bag and bag it myself?)

There was a large communal table with power units and ipod chargers built in at above table height in neat pipes almost artistic. There were also plush little couch nooks.

MilitiaJim balked at paying nine dollars for a sandwich, so we just got tea.

The staff was happy and pleasant.

MilitiaJim ordered Almond Cookie

I ordered Vanilla Cream

MilitiaJim wanted something more sweet for his cookie drink and so added simple syrup to both of our drinks. Sweetening them up a bit. I don’t think it changed either flavor much.

This is my favorite place for tea in NYC. A fantastic staff, who really love tea and give fantastic service. Great place to pick up a wide variety of loose leaf teas as well as an assortment of accessories. Not a lot of seating, but if you can grab one, they also have iPod charging stations as well as computer power strips.

One of my favorite cafes in NYC! The service is friendly, they have a wide selection of loose-leaf tea, and a big long table to work from (free wifi!). Combined, Subtle Tea is easily one of nicest atmospheres to work from in NYC. Grab your laptop and adventure through their tea menu, plenty of depth for you to come back time and again. Before you know it you’ll have had a few big cups, several hours have passed and lots of work will be behind you. It’s a good energy!

Now, if we can only get them to tune down the crazy dance music that’s usually just a bit too fast/loud for my tastes… ;)
