Fine arts require fine drinks, and The Met now has a tea house worthy of sharing its historic halls. Tea Drunk at The Met, an outpost of the East Village’s popular Chinese teahouse, is now open on the balcony overlooking the museum’s Great Hall. Surrounded by antique Asian ceramics (a preview of the new exhibit Age of Empires coming next month), you can take part in an authentic Gong Fu-style tea ceremony, a delicate ritual that emerged in medieval China over 1,000 years ago.
