7th Anniversary Golden Ticket 2022
Té turns 7 this year and in keeping with the last two years' anniversaries, we’re continuing the Golden Ticket event to celebrate our birthday with you.
DIGEST | Youkee & Seiko Nishida
For Té's 7th year anniversary month, we invited a local artist, Youkee Nishita, to celebrate our birthday with us. It's our first time hosting an artist exhibition at the tearoom and we think it's going to be quite special. Get to know him here!
DIGEST | Poetry of Wei Ying-Wu
Moody, atmospheric, and full of landscapes and portraits of everyday life, Wei Ying-Wu's poetry is perfect for summer tea drinking. We like them best in the countryside or on the beach, but they also work as an elevated form of escapism...we can confirm.
DIGEST | Clementina
Meet our favorite Portuguese grandmother. Born in 1928 in a small Portuguese town near Porto, Clementina is a force to be reckoned with: Her resilience, independence, and strength are near-universal traits of motherhood.
DIGEST | Reopening the Tearoom
Finally, we reopened our doors for indoor tea service. Read our reopening journey particularly in checking vaccination cards.
DIGEST | Persimmons
Persimmons are just pretty great. They look good, they last a while (decorations can’t go bad in a day or two), and when they’ve ripened they taste good, too. This year, we dried a lot of them in our tiny New York City tearoom to share with our guests. Read about our journey here!
Year of the Tiger
Happy Lunar New Year! Start your year by getting to know 2022's zodiac animal, the confident and ambitious Tiger.
6th Anniversary Golden Ticket 2021
Té turns 6 this year and in keeping with last year's anniversary, we’re continuing the Golden Ticket event inspired by Willy Wonka to celebrate our birthday with you.
DIGEST | Luise Stauss & Nicholas Blechman
For Té's 6th year anniversary, we invited the ultra cool New York creative duo Nicholas Blechman and Luise Stauss to design our Golden Tickets. Besides winning prize, we think the ticket itself is a collector's piece. Get to know them here!
DIGEST | Behind the Scenes: Taiwanese Mooncakes
In this month's digest, we go behind the scene on the making our Taiwanese mooncakes.
DIGEST | Teatime with Roslyn Schloss
Sometimes you see someone on the street and you have a premonition: you will meet, they will be incredibly interesting, and they will have fascinating opinions about very specific things which probably wouldn’t have ever crossed your mind. In this month’s digest, we meet one such New Yorker who Elena once saw on the street and knew would become a Té customer. As they say, the rest is history.
