i love this tea room. it´s whimsical and it´s lovely. the food is good, and the tea is fantastic. great variety of loose tea. my favorites are the rooibos tea (any of their selection), and the alice's tea, which i always buy to take home. whenever i´m in new york, i always come to have lunch to alice´s, even if it´s out of my way. it can be hard to get a table, but worth the trouble.
