Soho is best known for its clothing boutiques, but it is also home to several tea shops. At 33 Crosby Street you will find In Pursuit of Tea's pop-up shop, open since summer 2010. We wrote about their Tea & Cheese tasting last fall. Notice the "Ñ" in the shop window to the left of the tea shop? That's the site of pop-up The Matcha Box according to Grub Street New York.
I really like the In Pursuit of Tea shop. It's very cozy but gets great light through a large window. The server is personable and knowledgeable. Last summer I really enjoyed their cold infused teas.
Also on Crosby, at No. 79, is the Crosby Street Hotel which offers a traditional afternoon tea. We wrote about the hotel's tea service in August 2010.
Long established in Millerton, NY, Harney and Sons moved to Soho last fall; their large and airy shop is at 433 Broome Street.

Finally, Kelley and Ping at 127 Greene Street offers Thai Iced Tea and a tea of the day.
