Time Out says

Peruse polo apparel up front and sip from a list of 50 teas in back at this tea house-meets-equestrian shop—and be sure to try a traditional English sandwich.

Tal-Y-Tara peddles the unlikely combination of fine tea and equestrian get-ups. Up front you'll find horse tack, polo apparel and English riding gear. In back, you can sip from a list of 50 teas alongside black and white polo photos, towering wooden armoires and weathered saddles. The teas come in black, red, green, fruit, herbal and white varieties, accompanied by six types of sandwiches (all of which are served on the shop's signature dark "motorloaf" bread, a turn-of-the-century English recipe with a semi-sweet flavor). The sweets include unusual treats like English trifle layer pound cake and Dutch licorice chews.
