There is so much to like about New York's newest tea room, Tea Drunk! The shape of its windows, the interior layout including the hanging garden on the rear wall, and its logo.
I very much enjoyed the gaiwan service at Tea Drunk. Jee of Oh, How Civilized accompanied me and we shared the Early Spring 2013 Dian Hong, a red tea. Shunan, the owner, also joined us at the table. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Chinese teas which is what one would expect given the focus of the tea room.
Two other things I liked about Tea Drunk were the tea ware and the tea pets. I had not known about tea pets before this experience. Shunan gave us the back story. I chose a rabbit and Jee selected a turtle.
Tea pets are bathed or seasoned at the start of and throughout the tea service.
