Society hostess turned tea maven Tracy Stern will open SALONTEA TeaBar on March 9.
No, silly, it's not a beauty salon where they serve tea (kind of like the barbershop that serves booze), rather it's a nod to the salon in the traditional sense -- except (as you can see in this rendering) it has a disco ball. And Philippe Starck chairs.
The tooooo cute, sixteen-seat parlor will serve teas from Stern's various lines, in addition to other bevvies, as well as madeleines and macarons. According to Stern's site, the Toxic Beauty blend is "used by models for weight loss" and contains "all the antioxidants needed to forgive a hectic lifestyle."
You can see the tea menu here and the rest of the menu here. The TeaBar will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays, and will be available for private parties after-hours.
