Te NYC

oolong teaoolong tea

There is a cute little tea cafe that opened up at 163 West 10th street a couple of months ago. Elena, the owner of Te NYC, is a Taiwanese born oolong tea lover who has studied and refined the hand picked tea buds she brews in the cafe. A couple of friends invited me to try the place last week and we were happily ensconced in the most aromatic and delicious teas I have ever tried as well as fresh salads and quiches, made to order. The food menu is small for now but constantly expanding with fresh organic farmers market ingredients bought locally. Ask them to make you the potato quiche and salad with yogurt dressing and tiny chopped pickled onions, which are not yet on the menu. They are open Tuesdays through Fridays 8am – 6pm and Saturdays and Sundays 9am – 6pm 929-335-3168.

Dead And Breathing

dead and breathingdead and breathingdead and breathing

Last Saturday we went to see Dead and Breathing, the new production at the National Black Theatre in Harlem, written by Chisa Hutchinson, directed by Jonathan Mccrory and starring Lizan Mitchell and Nikki E. Walker. The play explores layers of race, class, sex, gender, relationships, cancer and life and death by choice. As serious as it sounds it is also hilarious, heartbreaking and heartwarming, which is what brilliant art and writing tends to do: make us laugh, cry, laugh and cry again. It is so worth the $40 ticket and a ride up to 125th street. The play runs through November 23rd.
