Harney & Sons Elevate Tea Drinking With A New Soho Flagship Shop
The high end wine shop experience gets translated over to a shop dedicated to tea.
This week marks the grand opening of the Harney & Sons flagship store in Soho, NYC. The dominating feature of the large space is a tasting bar which will allow visitors to sample some of the over 250 varieties of teas offered for sale. The teas are prepared and served by master brewers. Water for brewing is carefully boiled in special units which can be calibrated to the exact degree necessary for each type of tea. The experience is set up very much like tastings at a winery. Behind the bar is a floor to ceiling shelving unit containing all of the varieties of teas offered by Harney & Sons. The teas are sourced from across the globe and include special blends developed by Harney & Sons.
