Just a block up from the Tealuxe is another shop trying to peddle tea… This time it’s a British import, the Whittard (say Whit-TARD like their employees do) of Chelsea brand is stateside! But, N and I found it a bit disappointing when we checked it out over lunch break today. I guess we were imagining a wonderland where the tea flowed freely and there would be a bar with stools where we could sit to enjoy our cuppas. But there were none, sadly. Just a lot of tea you could buy (and we did, mostly their “1886 Blend”– how tea used to be!) and tiny little plastic shot glasses of tea that had been brewed a little too long. So… next time we’ll hit Tealuxe if we actually want to drink anything, and, of course, for their amazing lemony scones. Sigh.
