Ito En

Enjoying Oriental Beauty Oolong from Ito En, 822 Madison Avenue (at 69th Street), NYC. It is a nicely flavored tea, if a little lighter than the finest I have ever had, the Bai Hao Oolong from C.C. Fine Tea, of which the 2008 is, perhaps, the best of the best.




But, if you are in New York City, visit Eto En and while you are at it, go upstairs and have an exceptionally fine meal in their restaurant, Kai. Great food and great tea.

Gaah! Kai is closed, sob, but Ito En is still there.
