Ku Day Tay’s tea salon in Milpitas, California.
|If you are lucky enough to be in the San Francisco Bay area, you can escape to Ku Day Ta, a haven of loveliness for tea drinkers (no governments are likely to be overthrown amid the tranquility). Whatever the weather, there’s a comprehensive menu of black, green, herbal, oolong, pu-erh and white artisan teas to enjoy—cold, hot, with milk and spices, blended, or caffeine free.
You could try to create the stunning environment at home with some decorating tricks (we have the red walls, but no six-foot sculpted buddha) and soothing music, and have your own getaway tea and meditation room year-round. But to focus a moment on summer, why not end the season by throwing a memorable iced tea party—all the better if you have a lovely garden to serve it in? Explore local tea shops and online emporia like Adagio.com and Serendipitea.com for flavored teas, or steep your own. See our suggestions for an iced tea party, inspired by Ku Day Ta’s iced tea menu.
