Tea is both an art and an escape at this urban oasis.. In Short At this warehouse turned Zen tearoom, commuters wait out rush hour in tranquility, sipping pots of organic oolong to the sound of a trickling fountain. Staff are eager to educate, encouraging sniffs and demonstrating proper steeping technique for varieties with colorful names such as "Iron Goddess of Mercy." The menu also includes gourmet nibbles, including Mediterranean dips made from the owner's recipes. Occasional live music, open-mic nights and tea tastings keep the energy up.
