Best Fancy Tea: The Pierre


Our first choice for an elegant and indulgent afternoon tea, this high tea service includes blinis topped with caviar, sweet ginger scones, and caramel éclairs. The Pierre, 2 East 61st Street, New York



Best Tea Parlor: Bosie's


A West Village favorite, this warm, welcoming tea parlor offers over 100 different varieties of tea and serves pastries and macaroons, all handmade by their in-house French pastry chef. Bosies's, 10 Morton Street, New York



Best Afternoon Tea: The Carlyle Hotel


Head to the Gallery at this revered institution for English afternoon tea in an old New York setting, inspired by the sultan's dining room at the Topikapi Palace in Turkey. The Carlyle, 35 East 76th Street, New York



Best Champagne Tea: The Crosby


Tucked away amidst the hustle and bustle of Soho, we love the Crosby's bar for its champagne tea and savory scones. Have a glass of Ruinart before moving onto exotic teas by Harney & Sons. The Crosby, 79 Crosby Street, New York



Best Whimsical Tea Shop: Alice's Tea Cup


Have some tea in the Looking Glass Room at Alice's Tea Cup, conveniently located only a few blocks from Central Park. Like something straight out of Lewis Carroll's classic storybook, this shop is a colorful wonderland for the whole family to enjoy. Alice's Tea Cup - Chapter II, 156 E 64th Street, New York



Best Single-Concept: MatchaBar


Matcha lovers flock to the single-concept MatchaBar for variations on the Japanese-imported finely ground green tea and a food and dessert menu catered by Watty & Meg. MatchaBar, 93 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn



Best Family Tea: The Plaza


There are few things more New York than the Eloise-themed tea at the Plaza. The Eloise Shop makes for a glamorous backdrop, and the service is tailored toward young Eloises-to-be. The Plaza, 768 5th Avenue, New York
