Recently my dear friend Allison invited me to go to breakfast at this place she said she can’t seem to get enough of. She had visited the darling spot at least three times in four days and going back again was not something she hesitated to do for even a moment. Her enthusiasm certainly intrigued me, however the moment I walked in to The Tea Set I had no more questions as my search for a beautiful and delicious breakfast spot were answered.
For those who thought tea could only be enjoyed with scones, pearls and a hoity-toity accent, here’s another thought, courtesy of Jacques Doassans: why not merge the perky beverage with pop champagne, macaroons and some chic downtown edge? That’s just a peak of what Doassans is doing at his new West Village hot-spot, The Tea Set, where custom-created, organic, fair-trade teas are served in a uniquely social setting that’s stripped of any pretentious roots. Inspired by a rising trend in London, where models like Kate Moss have been spotted—and photographed—enjoying their tea with some bubbly, Doassans brings a new experience to New York with his Organic Tea and Champagne Room that’s adapted to perfectly suit the Manhattan lifestyle.
My breakfast with Allison consisted of two fruit plates, with fruit so fresh we thought maybe Jacques himself had fruit trees growing in a Manhattan side street somewhere. Complimented by the delicious Organic West Village Breakfast Tea which was made up of Organic White, Green, Darjeeling and Black tea with a hint of natural Vanilla flavoring. Yes, it was as heavenly as it sounds! The down right exciting thing about The Tea Set is not only that what they serve is so wonderful, but their decor is something that I personally fell in love with. The West Village sweet spot is filed with items from many of Jacques travels to India and China and other parts of the world. Everything down to their menu is so well thought out and the attention to detail is simply priceless. You could literally stay there all day, starting off with a healthy and delicious breakfast which can lead in to a fulfilling lunch and then top it all off with champagne and great company, why would you go anywhere else?
The Tea Set is located at 235 W 12th Street in the heart of the West Village, and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and beyond daily from 7AM – 12AM
