Harney & Sons produces more than 250 varieties of tea in its Dutchess County headquarters, and connoisseurs can e to sample most of them at the 25-foot tasting bar in the company's Soho shop. Sweet and savory scones will be served in the 26-seat café, along with novelties like tea-flavored ice cream from the Berkshires' SoCo Creamery and tea-laced Harpersfield cheeses made by Brovetto Dairy upstate. There's no beer or wine, but should the urge strike, the nearby Crosby Street Hotel serves a Champagne tea featuring Harney & Sons selections. Between this new arrival and In Pursuit of Tea's storefront around the corner, this stretch of Soho has become a tea drinker's destination in a coffee-obsessed town.
