Carroll Gardens' caffeine-seekers can refuel at this neighborhood tea-and-coffee café, with Dallis Bros. beans and more than 80 loose-leaf varieties. Along with straightforward sips (cappuccinos, lattes, green and white teas), baristas percolate the namesake, the Teaffee, a concentrated coffee-tea mash-up in flavors like hazelnut and Earl Grey. Snag a stool at the lime-green counter for brews like lemongrass black tea (served in a ceramic pot with a timer for optimum brewing) or an icy treat. Tea-infused ice creams include ginger-matcha and marsala-chai, while frozen coffees (here known as "meeeshes") get blended with caramel cappuccino gelato. Loose-leaf teas, coffee beans and brewing accessories (kettles, French presses, infusers) are available in the steel-shelved retail section in back.
