Hudson Valley Tea Shops: Harney & Sons Tea, Millerton, Dutchess County, NY
Visit Harney & Sons in Millerton, NY
One of the biggest names in tea culture has long had a popular tasting room and café in this quirky northern Dutchess village (a SoHo outpost opened late last year). Here, in a swank, modern building, you can always sample the “tea of the moment” (which changes throughout the day); purchase almost all of their 300 gourmet loose teas by the ounce; shop for charming tea paraphernalia and home goods; or have lunch or Sunday brunch. Check out the tea travels blog if you want to read about the romantic escapades of the Harney family as they scour the globe searching for the highest quality tea leaves.
