Hudson Valley Tea Shops: The Tea Shop of Woodstock, Woodstock, Ulster County, NY
Visit the Tea Shop of Woodstock in Woodstock, NY
A knowledgeable staff combined with a huge selection of loose-leaf teas makes the locals proclaim that this off-the-beaten-path shop is just groovy. The large assortment of tea accessories (pots, mugs, mate gourds) is a standout; of particular interest are Yixing clay pots from China, said to take on the flavor of tea through the years; one day, you might only need to add hot water to the pot to brew your cuppa. This season’s new teas include coconut and almond green tea, jasmine roses oolong, and chocolate puerh (with curls of dark chocolate).
