Tea in Brooklyn?
Does anyone know a good, not-too-noisy place where you can sit and have an English-style tea in Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Park Slope or around there?
Tazza (on Henry just off of Atlantic) serves a nice pot of tea. It's relatively quiet. They have other treats as well.
I don't know about English-style, but Vox Pop on Cortelyou Road (right off the B/Q) has a really nice selection of organic loose teas.
I don't want to get blasted for mentioning places in Manhattan, but for really upscale English tea nothing beats Lady Mendel's in Gramercy Park.
I've been wondering this too. I don't know if you mean a formal "afternoon tea" with sandwiches and petits fours--Sweet Melissa is the only place I know that does that--but I would be delighted with a place that really knows how to a brew a pot of tea.
