In New York City, there is never a shortage of unique and amazing experiences for one to partake in.  If you're looking for something fun to do and you happen to enjoy bubble tea, you should know about Room For Tea, the latest NYC-based pop-up that is dedicated to celebrating tea. Located in in Lower Manhattan, the conceptual space is meant to provide an interactive  journey to experience and learn more about tea through 18 visual highlights and 5 vignettes with interactive tea themed installations created by female artists.

Room For Tea is a fun experience but I wouldn't call it a must visit unless you really love your bubble tea. The space is rather small and while much better mounted than the Egg House, I think there could have been more depth and detail put into the installations.  If you do go, be aware that there is no air conditioning and only fans are used to cool the space which is not so much fun on a hot and humid day.

Room For Tea will be open daily 11:00Am to 9:30PM through September 22, 2018

  2. I am a huge fan of tea, so the 40 minute tea ceremony would intrigue me, but to be honest I never really fell for bubble tea.

  10. As an avid tea drinker, I would love to visit this if only I lived in NYC, it looks like such a fun experience! I'm not familiar with most of the tea brands but we do have Kung Fu Tea here in the DC area and it's one of MJ favorite places to get bubble tea!
