Choose from among the 450 different leaves available at this tea salon, where reclining-Buddha statues and photos of the Dalai Lama lend the air of a Tibetan meditation retreat to what could be an English country parlor. Teas come hot or iced, in smoothies or in gelati, and can be paired with pretty, pricey munchies (there are Peruvian specialties, as well as vegan cakes and cookies). Still, this spot is popular for bridal showers, and a taro card reader will entertain your party on request.
