I was wandering down Mass Ave from Porter towards
Harvard this evening when I noticed that a new
cafe had opened in the old location of Tea Tray
in the Sky, called SweeTea Cafe.
I picked up both their regular and tea menus.
They have a list of thirteen appetizers, from
shumai and several types of spring rolls and
dumplings to sweet potato fries and turnip cakes
($4.25 - $4.95)
They also sell banh mi ($3.50) and fresh spring rolls (goi cuon) ($4.50)
with various fillings, vietnamese noodle soups
($5.25 to $6.25), and fresh fruit crepes ($2.95 - $4.50).
They also have ice cream, fruit shakes, bubble tea,
"frothy milk tea", tea lattes (with whipped cream),
smoothies, coffee, hot ovaltine(!) and, of course, tea.
Their tea menu has about 20 varieties, including one each of
Assam, Ceylon, Darjeeling, Oolong, white, earl grey,
rooibos, matechino, etc. There are a few greens,
herbals, decafs, chais, and blends. Tea is $2.50
to $3.25 for most varieties, but some such as the
white tea and mate are over $4.
They're open every day from 11am-10pm. I'll probably
try them tomorrow, and will give a full report. =)
