Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
