Good place for Tea

Hello CHers --

Can anyone recommend a place that has very good tea? I'm meeting a friend this afternoon, and she's really getting into high quality tea. Many coffee shops will simply throw a bag of twinings into a cup of tepid water and call it a day. Ideally they'll serve coffee too, because I'm not really a tea drinker.

I'm looking for the kind of place where we could sit and talk for a few hours and not have wait staff pushing us along. So... nothing like an English Afternoon Tea service. Just the drink, not the "event."

Neighborhood isn't so important, but I would say UES would be less attractive than anything below 42nd street, or possibly on the west side.

Thanks!
