Our 10 Favorite Places for High Tea in NYC

Bosie Tea Parlor in the West Village

Bosie Tea Parlor is a must-try destination for true tea enthusiasts. Its founder, Kiley Holliday, is the youngest female tea sommelier in the United States. So it’s no wonder that Bosie Tea Parlor offers over 100 varieties of tea to choose from. Unlike many other high tea hotspots, Bosie Tea Parlor is simple, streamlined and unadorned. In other words, it’s not just a great place to gab with your girlfriends.  It’s also a great place to bring your dude.

Basic Tea Service is $29 for one or $55 for two. Guests get a choice of three tea sandwiches, two mini scones with jam and clotted cream, two mini tea cakes and a choice of two macaroons. Champagne Tea Service is $45 for one and $85 for two. It includes champagne plus a choice of pastry instead of two tea cakes. In addition to its extensive tea selection, Bosie Tea Parlor is known for its pastries and macaroons. So whether you get the Basic Service or the Champagne Service, you’re getting a taste of their specialties. If you’re feeling extra fancy, the Chef’s Tea Service is the ultimate indulgence. It includes champagne, double portions of tea, scones, tea cakes and macaroons, 24 canapés and a choice of pastry. This service is $120 for two and requires a reservation at least 48 hours in advance. All other tea services are available daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

      The only spot with a gluten-free option on the list has a note on its website saying they no longer offer gluten-free options. Any new ones you know of? I’d really love to take my girls out for tea when we visit NYC in a couple of weeks!

    I am trying to find a great, classy, brunch for my 21st birthday with my best friend. I love high tea, but also a boozy brunch would be awesome! I love dressing up classy and love to stare at a great view. Do you have anything you recommend?

    Thanks so much love your blog!

    Whenever I’m uptown, I always try to have meetings at a fancy tea room because they’re just so glamorous and elegant.

    Next time I'm in the city I will have to make sure to try Hotel Plaza Athenee. I'm quite enamored by the dark ,warm colors. Tea would be delightful and cozy there.
