Radiance

This week I had the pleasure of stopping in at what I think is the best tea house I have been to yet. Radiance is located in New York City and is relatively easy to get to. I went straight from work so I decided to get dinner before the tea tasting that they would be having later that night. The service was excellent as was the food.

The staff are so enthusiastic about tea, it is infectious. Radiance has tea tastings every Tuesday. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend it. They prepared five different teas, talking about each one and offered to fill our tasting cups multiple times. Not only was it good tea but good conversation as well. The teaware is expensive but of very good quality. All in all, Radiance is my new favorite tea spot. It is timely change since Amai closed its doors this past weekend.
