Best Place for Green Tea Baked Goods and Lattes

I love green tea infused in anything edible. I like the green tea items such as scones and cookies at Cha an. Do you have any recs for other places where I can try green tea things?

  1. I've read good things about the green tea cupcake at Barfry.

    1. Tafu on 51th St between Lex and 3rd is insanely expensive, but has really flavorful tea and tea flavored cheesecakes imported from Japan. I really like the genmai-cha and the lattes look pretty good too. If its more than 60 degrees tomorrow, I'll try a latte and report back.
      Note the lack of seating area though.

      1. Panya's green tea tiramisu is great. 10 Stuyvesant St. by 3 Ave. and 9 St. Haven't tried their drinks though.

        1. Amai Tea House and Bakery
          Beard Papa
          Cafe Zaiya
          Panya Bakery
          Ono (matcha churros)
          Lan (green tea dessert items on dessert menu, I think)

            Thanks everyone. I've tried Beard Paper and I agree that their cream puffs are great. I'm hoping to try Amai Tea House and Panya. Please keep the suggestions coming.

              It might have been mentioned above, but I don't know the name. Its on St Marks and Third Avenue, right next to the Ray's Pizza. They have the greatest green tea muffins and croissants.

              And then, if you wanna stretch big, get the green tea milles crepe at Megu in Tribeca.

                  Went to Vero Wine and Pannini Bar on the UES Friday night. I would not recommend it. The food was ok but way way overpriced. It also seemed more like a club scene than a relaxing wine bar in there. We will not be going back.

                I love the green tea cookies at Sunrise Mart (the Japanese market on Broome - think it's Broome). They are sold in little packages near the registers.
