Japanese Tea House serving Unique Sweets & Homestyle Snacks
The decor alone gives this place a great setting for enjoying some tea. The mochi they serve is the high class one, you won't be able to go back to the one you find in supermarkets.
No longer cash only, they accept AMEX.
Tea, lunch unagi, can't go wrong!
Refined, elegant and quiet Japanese-style tea room also serving light meals. Full-service. Limited seating.
Ice cream, cake, deserts
Cute authentic japanese treats & assortment of teas
Great selection of Japanese teas and desserts
Great spot to catch up with small eats, dessert, and a great selection of tea and proper(!) brewing setups.
I absolutely love everything about this place. Japanese comfort food at its finest.
The Hojicha Anmitsu is the perfect answer for a light dessert.
Everything is good if you like Japanese cooking and desserts. Good for dates
Try the Black Sesame Creme Brulee (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Cherry Blossom Flan (via @Foodspotting)
The only thing I love from the sampler was black sesame pudding. Gotta go back for more.
Cash only doe. Okayu set
Cozy Jap teahouse w/delicately prepared bentos, donburis, toasts, & desserts. Black sesame creme brûlée is the usual pick but my sweet tooth prefers the Mixed berry Parfait w/ fab flavors & textures
Their desserts are amazing. I especially like the black sesame creme brulee & chocolate mochi. They have a great list of teas as well.
Get there before 2 o'clock to get a table immediately.
Try the dessert sampler with your favorite tea.
Favorite tea/calming food spot in New York. Not over priced, authentic and genuine food, good atmosphere, what more to ask?!
Overpriced tea. Green tea parfait is pretty bomb tho. Also ladies.. Check out their toilet!!
A little on the expensive side but the tea is excellent and their black sesame deserts are the best!!!
Get a pot of tea and the sesame crème brulé
Great for tea and desserts!
Good desserts, annoying clientele
Green Tea Parfait -$11
The matcha green tea is steep but worth every penny
Best Japanese breakfast/lunch/dinner sets. Amazing creative Japanese dessert. Lots of tea.
The tea-smoked salmon toast pairs perfectly with a bottle of Hana Awaka sparkling sake.
Dessert here is great and very cozy. Even though it's small toy still don't feel crowded
The lavender mint tea is sweet and refreshing, a must try. The raspberry chocolate soufflé is heavenly, served at the perfect temperature. Only downside of this place is that they accept cash only.
The tea such a wonderful array of notes, this definitely a place to get quality tea and escape from the world for a little while.
The black sesame creme brulee is worth the wait.
Excellent ambiance and extra friendly staff. Get the Chef's selection dessert sampler to taste their many different desserts. Be ready for a green tea & black sesame overload.
The black sesame icecream on cremebrulee is a must try!!!
Get the dessert sampler and share it
This casual, cash-only Japanese tea room is notable for its tea, but also for its desserts.
Loved their green tea smoked salmon! Loved the greens, the sauce, the very thick toast, and the salmon itself. The ambiance was great, as well. Forego the team/dessert. Get the 6 seater private room!
The ambiance is great/authentic! The tea/dessert was way below expectations. My White Peony tea was more astringent than white tea ever should be, and the sesame seed creme brûlée was not good at all.
A cash-only tea house situated just outside of Saint Mark's, Cha-An has a dizzying list of teas, desserts, and bites. It's a solid choice for a date or an intimate conversation.
Tea selection is great and the small plates are homey and kind of comforting in their simplicity.
Home of my favorite dessert in the City, the black sesame creme brulee. Lovely ambiance, fascinating drinks and desserts.
Black sesame creme brulee is my favorite dessert ever. The perfect amount of sweetness and not too heavy.
Cute & quiet ambience tea house with a good selection of tea and desserts. Lunch special is until 6PM.
Sake ice cream. 'Nuff said.
Sakura Flan, Black Sesame Crème Brûlée. That's all you need to know.
Come here for a retreat from the otherwise noisy East Village. Loved the attentive service and unlimited refills of tea--try the Jasmine Pearls green!
