You want green tea? You want black tea? Herbal tea? White tea? No problem. There are so many varieties of teas here you need a catalog to peruse the selections. Located in a Madison Avenue town house, Ito En is like an art gallery of teas; everything is neatly displayed and there is a calming, serene feel to the store. There is a sencha bar (tea bar), where you can sample some of their teas and get advice from the experts working there. They also sell green-tea-dusted chocolate-covered almonds that are an addictive, and very expensive, munchie.
