In the unassuming area of Chinatown, Tea At 1024 is a hidden gem for foodie and tea seekers. The teahouse itself is very small, and seats only about 6 to 7 small groups. However, the entire room is decorated in quality pieces that make the teahouse feel homey, stylish, and quintessentially girly.

At this teahouse, customers are encouraged to try and think out of the box in terms of the tea experience – large floppy hats are provided for choosing and wearing, along with fans, boa feathers, and masks.

Tea At 1024 is known for its “Window Seat” – a large, two-person seater that is fully displayed to the street, but is also fantastically decorated, making any couple look incredibly chic.

While waiting for the tea and food, customers are encouraged to walk around and take photos of the decor, and to fully enjoy their stay.

What’s also great about Tea At 1024 is that customers are prompted to pick out their tea cups to use for the day, from a wall of huge tea cups and glasses. It seems to make the experience a lot more personalized, and, consequently, more fun. Hands on food is always a plus!

The food is exquisite! Scrumptious scones, cream, preserves, make up one tier of their food stack. Mini finger sandwiches filled with morsels like crab and olive, salmon and pesto, and classic PB&J fill another tier of the tea tray. And yet another tray of food is presented with the dessert tray! Stomachs will leave Tea At 1024 very happy indeed.

The owner of Tea At 1024 has been working personally to make sure that her customers always get great service. They have a drawing for a free lunch for 2 months for those who sign up for the newsletter. Also, the ambiance is extremely calm, and one never feels rushed to leave, even after closing time approaches. Incredible!

Truly, Tea At 1024 is a fantastic sit-down teahouse that will leave anyone thoroughly full and feeling like they’ve just visited a fantastic wonderland.
