Do you drink tea?

I came late to the tea party, I guess.  I have always been a coffee man.  Exclusively.  But just a short while back I started sipping a cup of tea once in a while.  And I liked it.  One thing that amazes me about tea is the variety of tea leaves that are available in the many tea shops and tea houses in Upstate New York.  You will see that on this list.

One of the tea houses mentioned here has more than 50 varieties.  Another has more than 90.  Still another on the list has the largest selection of organic tea leaves in the whole United States!  I guess if you can't find it there, well, maybe it hasn't been grown yet.

Of course in these listed tea shops you can also find all the extras that come with tea time:  tea pots, cups and saucers, whole tea settings, for sale, scones and tea sandwiches for lunch, tea parties for the young and old, and so much more.  Plus several on this list are tea shops located in some of Upstate's most beautiful and historic buildings.

So, when it is tea time in Upstate New York we encourage you to take a look at this list of 15 of the best ones around the region and go, enjoy a cup, relax in the comfortable settings, and...don't forget to raise your pinky finger up!
