Grounded in the West Village is known as an especially tea-friendly coffee shop, even selling their own line of loose leaf teas. Keep an eye out for their Rose Tea Latte ($4.75), in which a strong brewed, brisk black tea replaces espresso in a silky, extra-frothy latte. They sweeten it with just enough rose syrup to leave a gentle, somewhat floral but not at all soapy flavor. The rose notes are delicate, a soft contrast to the bold tea, wrapped in a rich blanket of frothed whole milk.
Snap on that lid and take it go—this warm drink is the ideal accompaniment to the crisp fall weather.
