    The tea is amazing. I am vegetarian they had amazing options. Bok Choy was delicious and eggplant too.

    While the tea and atmosphere are lovely, service is slow, so budget out a lot of time.

    The Dong Ding Mountain Oolong tea was one of the best oolong teas I've had.

    This may be my new go-to place to destress. Relax with a pot of tea and some dumplings. Tons of teas to choose from and you can buy loose tea to take home. Lovely little biscuits as well.

    An amazing list of different type of teas. Ask your server with preferences as you most likely have no clue what any tea is

    Religious/spiritual group affiliations aside, this place is a very relaxing and enjoyable Chinese-style tea parlor with tasty snacks and small plates.

    Tea! Impressive tea collection including oriental beauty. Yummy lunch boxes too. Will be back to try green tea soba and a few more items on menu. Great staff as well.

    Fabulous gem in the heart of midtown. Didn't try any food but the menu looked fantastic. Tea selection is the most in depth I've ever seen.

    If you want to try green tea, try the Dragon Well. It's a cute quite place and great for conversing with friends. They also have a library inside.

    Overpriced even for its class and slower service than I could have imagined. Really wanted to like this place.

    Come for the lunch special dumpling bento box and order a pot of authentic Chinese tea. Peaceful and relaxing sanctuary helps you escape the hustle/bustle outside.

    Get Wellness soup, chicken & woodear mushroom, handmade pork & vegetable dumplings & Chrysanthemum & E. Journey teas. Head to Radiance in E Midtown for more upscale, "wellness-themed" Canto dishes.

    Their teas and desserts are great but their food is hit or miss. Our BBQ pork buns came undercooked and doughy.

    Such a charming, serene tea house in the middle of crazy and loud midtown. Service is gracious, if slow. I'll be back--this was a human place!

    This is my favorite tea spot in Midtown. Quiet, peaceful, lovely bites and a tea list that's divine.

    You can get tea to go from here! They make it quite quickly. Iced mint tea is perfect on a hot midtown day ;)

    My client just told me about their new 208 East 50th St location. Healthy Chinese food e.g. Goji berries + dates thrown in. Chinese herbal soups. One of few places in NYC where you can buy Pu'er tea!

    At $9, the Green Tea Cold Noodles is perhaps the most budget-friendly of the larger dishes, to make for a filling meal.

    The second show for our 2012-2013 season has started so it's a pretty stressful time for us. This is the perfect place for us to relax and find the most calming tea on the menu!

    Food and tea are still quite good. Service this time was horrible. So bad it might be our last visit. Painfully slow, wrong order, not good at making any amends. #Fail

    Lunch rush seems to be terrible now which I guess means they throw reservations out the window??? This was great back in the day...
