BELLOCQ Tea Atelier

Where: 104 West Street, Brooklyn NY 11222 (Williamsburg)
  • For the tea obsessed only — be prepared to shell out money 
  • Try any samples they have to offer. Don’t be afraid to sniff out of all the canisters that are laid out, just remember that it doesn’t always taste the way it smells, especially if it’s a mild or subtle tea
  • 2 oz seems like a little but goes a long way — savor, don’t gulp
  • You get what you pay for — if you are accustomed to getting leaf dust, be prepared for a pleasant surprise
  • The Atelier is pleasant to look at, but hellishly hot in the summer. I feel bad for the people who work there
