Best of Boston

2001 Best Tea

Tea-Tray in the Sky

Boston has long had a stormy relationship with tea, but this Alice in Wonderland-inspired joint puts all bad memories to rest with its 80-plus flavor selections. The menu offers authentic choices—black, green, white teas—and otherworldly flavors, including Russian Caravan and Madagascar Vanilla. Tea-Tray’s innovative tendencies extend to brewed edibles including Earl Grey truffles and Jasmine tea tarts.
