Does sitting in a relaxing zen tea room inside a West Village townhouse sound like the perfect Saturday afternoon? Say no more. Té Company serves up to 30 different Taiwanese teas at any time, alongside a light lunch menu and baked snacks. Elena Liao is Taiwanese American and along with her husband Frederico Ribeiro, the founder/owner of Te Company. She started it 10 years ago to help drive awareness of premium Taiwanese teas and make them more accessible. As you might’ve guessed, “Té” means tea in Taiwanese and was decided as the name because it’s a connection to Liao’s family and lineage from Fujin. Order a pot of the wild chrysanthemum herbal tea for a calming and lightly sweet flavor and definitely grab one of the very popular pineapple Linzer cookies. Takeout and limited outdoor seating are available Tuesday to Sunday from 11-7pm.
