Time Out says

This mellow neighborhood café has more to offer than a Gossip Girl trivia connection and free Wi-Fi for its laptop-toting clientele. The organic loose-leaf teas are worth the trip alone.

Communitea says
Communitea has been serving Long Island City the largest selection of loose-leaf teas, nutritious comfort foods, big salads and home-made baked goods since 2005. Not only do we offer a great cuppa tea but Irving Farm Coffee, locally brewed beers, and a selection of fine wines and cider.

Communitea by far! better coffee, better staff, and much friendlier service. ever since they had to relocate i come here way more often. there's more seating and they are working hard to expand the business with new offerings.
amazing selection of loose tea as well.

This is the venue we found when my husband and I just started dating -- it's a lovely part of our family history❤️ The people who work there are so friendly and interesting to talk to. And, of course, THE FOOD AT COMMUNITEA... It's absolutely phenomenal - delicious and fresh, carrying great energy✨🙏🏼✨ Thank you!

Nice big space to work, friendly staff, fast wifi, tasty food & tea, and now they serve alcohol. I wish they stayed open later, but it's still a great place to visit during the day.

Amazing food, amazing drinks, amazing staff, amazing location!

This place is awesome!  The staff is ridiculously friendly and always make me feel welcome.  I cannot say enough about them.  The food and drinks are delicious.  There is also plenty of room, very spacious location.

Fighting the system, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes... They found a new location to make me turkey ruebens!
