Get the soupy dumplings.
Dan makes the experience here a cut above.
Lovely place with delicious and very fresh food. Make sure you have time for a leisurely lunch though as the service is very slow.
Ask the phenomenal staff for a recommendation. They know their stuff!
Dan is intense about tea... I like it! Get him as your waiter.
Veggie dumplings. Yes. Spinach and mushrooms. Yes!
Overpriced. Small portions. Lots of rain.
At $9, the Green Tea Cold Noodles is perhaps the most budget-friendly of the larger dishes, to make for a filling meal.
It's not the same without Dan. Get him as your waiter if you can.
Sit down! Try the Osmanthus Oolong!
Amazing, but overpriced :( especially the teapots for two. The dumplings, although $8 a portion, are delicious and worth trying. Chicken with spicy sauce and soupy pork are the best!
The chicken dumplings are fabulous, could eat here everyday! Ask for extra miso sauce. Try the Ginger milk tea iced- Delish!
Try their Green Tea ice cream... yummy
Serves Silver Needle, the caviar of white tea.
Get the dumplings for a nice lunch. I like the woodear mushroom chicken ones.
The "Crystal Shrimp Dumplings" are very good!
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!
Lunch rush seems to be terrible now which I guess means they throw reservations out the window??? This was great back in the day...
They serve boba here!
Try the Gen Mai Cha - Delicious and unique
super cute Japanese tea house
Free WiFi is only from 2:30 to 5 pm.
the purple yam latte is delicious and the hue is all natural and absolutely beautiful!
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.
Service is super slow, but the soupy dumplings are worth it
North Midtown oasis. Great place to relax, read or play a board game.
The Moroccan mint tea was great. Be sure to order the soupy pork dumplings!
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.
Soupy dumplings Are great ... Service .... Not so much
Get the dumplings.
Everything is good here!
Soupy pork dumplings lunch box! So good!
Tranquility in midtown!
Try the summer treasure tea!
Great prices for menu items, service was a little slow.
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.
This is one of the best restaurants
You can get tea to go from here! They make it quite quickly. Iced mint tea is perfect on a hot midtown day ;)
Try the ocean breeze tea. Very smooth. No need for sugar
Great atmosphere. Soupy dumplings and iced teas are the best.
Yummy shrimp wontons and lavender tea
