Afternoon Tea at Bosie Tea Parlor, NYC!

Bosie Tea Parlor, 10 Morton Street, West Village, NYC
Bosie's Special Blend Tea for Me
The Tea Tray was Gone in a Second!
I have always loved afternoon tea since I first went to England at age 12.  So when The Herbal Husband and I took the train to NYC a couple of weeks ago, I said we have to find a place of afternoon tea.  We went to Alice's Tea Cup last time which was very good.  This time since we were going to the 9/11 Memorial and then the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, we decided to try Bosie Tea Parlor in the West Village.  Well, after a mistake in Subway stops (which The Herbal Husband was not happy about) we made it across the TRAFFIC on Seventh Avenue to Bosie.  Yes, we walked several blocks to get there!  They are known for their selection of teas, pastries and macarons and they didn't disappoint. The tea service included choice of three different tea sandwiches, three different macarons and tea cakes and, of course, scones.  Our tea sandwiches were:
Farmer’s Egg Salad with thyme blossoms on whole wheat
Chicken Breast with golden raisins and curried mayonnaise on multi-grain
Cheddar Cheese and Branston pickle on whole wheat
The Herbal Husband chose lavender, rose and jasmine macarons and we had vanilla, lemon and macha tea tea cakes.  Sadly I can't have chocolate anymore so The Herbal Husband didn't have any chocolate either!   I topped mine off with a Bosie Special Blend tea (I didn't write down what it was called!)  It was good though.  We were famished and chowed right down as only we can.  So if you are in NYC, looking for a place for afternoon tea, try Bosie.  I think you will enjoy it. 

It is another beautiful day in the garden.  I'll get you caught up in the next post.  Have a great weekend.

Herbal tea is very good for health and even doctors also prescribe it to take at least once a day.
