The whole body tea experience at Bouteaque
Unlike coffee, which I associate with work and the effort to be unnaturally productive, tea evokes thoughts of calmly going with the flow -- even though the teas I usually drink are of the caffeinated variety (I stand by my belief that caffeine is not bad in moderation).
The founder of Bouteaque, Adjowii Ozdemir, has taken the idea of tea as part of a healthy, serene lifestyle and created a tearoom boutique in New York, which not only sells tea and tea accessories, but bath and body products containing tea and accessories inspired by tea, like these beautiful green earrings and fluffy purse.
Other locations are coming, but those in New York can visit Bouteaque at 226 E. 3rd Street (between Aves. B & C). You can also buy many of their products from their online store.
