TeaBar: The Most Cloying Thing on the Upper East Side Since Serendipity?


Tracy Stern, internationally known tea purveyor, is opening a new bar on the Upper East Side. SALONTEA TeaBar will serve teas from Stern’s exclusive tea line, which includes such custom blends as “Toxic Beauty”. According to Stern’s website (www.tracystern.com), the antioxidant-rich tea blend is “used by models to lose weight”. The menu also includes a variety of tea infusions and other hot drinks, as well as madeleines and macarons. The sixteen -seat drink parlor opens March 9th at 501 East  75th Street. Anyone for a spot of tea?
