Tea Tray in the Sky

This little cafe offers a welcome respite from Starbucks culture, offering everything from your standard Assam to more exotic blends, from scented and flavored teas to herbal infusions. For summer, try the iced ginger-and-lemongrass tea with one of Tea Tray’s sandwiches or desserts. Complimentary tea tastings Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
