I had a lovely tea service at Bosie Tea Parlor in the West Village this afternoon. The menu of teas feels endless but I eventually decided on a simple Dorian Grey, which turned out to be glorious and came home with me in a small tin. The impeccable tea service also come with three finger sandwiches, two scones (um, best scones I have ever tasted), tea cakes, and two macarons (I went with peach saffron and rose, but there are at least a dozen or so flavors to choose from.).
Mr. B had a quiche and a tea called Chinese Beauty Rings. It was very nice as well, but we both agreed that the Dorian Grey was the better pick. At the end, we added another plate of macarons to our bellies, including a raspberry dark chocolate, maple bacon, earl grey, jasmine, and dark chocolate.
I will definitely return to try more teas (and for a plate of those scones...). Bosie is a perfect venue for a very civilized and charming lunch date.
On another note, I think I've become handicapped with my digital camera. I honestly feel a tad out of my element with it now especially when it comes to processing. Film is so safe and easy in comparison! Yikes!
