Radiance Tea House & Books
Midtown West
This shrine to the culture and history of tea offers traditional hour-long Chinese-style ceremonies, where you’ll get to sample three brews ($35). Radiance also hosts regular group tastings (you’ll try white, green, oolong, black and herbal infusions while nibbling mochi treats) that will teach you how to properly steep a pot at home ($15). Or simply drop in for a cup—there are more than 100 varieties, organized by country of origin—while thumbing through books about tea written in English and Chinese.
