      I've been to comunitea twice so far as a new resident of long island city. Food is great, the servers are disinterested, and they make all the tea with boiling water. So, if you are a true tea drinker, you can't drink green or white tea from here. They do time the steeping, which is a plus. They don't have different size cups.

      In a nutshell the t

      coffee drinkers vastly outnumber tea drinkers here, so aside from the kitchy name, I wouldn't really consider it a true tea house. Breakfasts are good.

      Communitea with a lot of attitude...

      Nice decor, OK food, fast internet but stay away from KIM, her rude attitude really spoils this friendly café.

      I almost started working for this little shop when I moved to the city. I had to turn them down because of scheduling stuff, but I've gone out of my way to go back a few times because I believe in the business so strongly. Awesome!

      I Just moved here a few months ago from fl. and was afraid to even venture out of my apt. for the first week. Communitea is right down my street and was the first place I felt welcome in such a city so large. Thank you for making me feel welcome Communitea.

      Love this place! Fun tea choices, great food, cozy environment that still makes you feel like you have your own space, nice staff and WI-FI. Easy to find just a few blocks down Vernon from the 7 train.

      This place is perfect for long-term studying. The food and drink prices are reasonable and other patrons are considerate of those who are studying. Great music - never too loud. The staff is excellent.

      I'm a hot beverage/cafe-kickin' connoisseur and this funky place has it all--plus a cute chick that runs the joint. What a find!
