February's fashion features are all about things I love. I'm combining fashion and food and my city. Today I'm talking about having a stylish tea time in New York. If you didn't know it already, I am a huge tea lover. I sip tea all day long. I have a few favorite brands, but I'm always on the hunt for new flavors and new spots to discover.

Stylish Tea Time in New York

Stylish Tea Time at Harney Tea Soho

This month I'm inviting you along to the Harney Tea Salon in Soho. For the outing, I'm wearing a few things I love. Remember the theme of the year is wearing what you love?

Here's a closer shot of the sweater. It's got bold stripes and a Kelly green tie at the neck. It's a nice mix of girly and sporty and can be paired with a pencil skirt or a pair of jeans.

The bag is from Longchamp called the 'Le Pliage' tote—I have had it for years and it's the perfect weight and size for walking around NYC and doing a bit of shopping. It's light and so very packable.

Exploring Cities Via Tea

When I travel, I love popping into food shops. I find eating and drinking my way through cities like Paris and London help me get connected to the culture. In London, you simply can't miss tea time. NYC certainly has a few spots for fancy tea times. this is a bit more relaxed. It's not about loading up on sweets and treats, it's about sipping something marvelous.

Harney & Sons Tea has been around for more than 30 years. The brand started in Salisbury, Connecticut, and that's where I discovered it the first time. The company remains family owned and operated, but the reach of the tea has really grown in the 10 years I've know them. You'll get a good sense of what the brand is all about when you visit the Harney & Sons spot in Soho.

When you pop into the tasting bar and lounge be sure to talk to the knowledgeable staff. They will set you up with a sample or two or three. With 250 varieties of tea to pick from, be sure you give yourself enough time to enjoy the process.

I tried some delicious Ceylon tea and learned that I have been using too-hot water to steep my white teas. I am sure you will pick up some insider knowledge too. This place is a treasure trove of teas and also a great spot to pick up gifts for your tea-loving friends.
