   The Random Tea Room and Curiosity Shop
Sure, The Random Tea Room puts up appearances. An antique roll-top desk houses the cash machine, elegant ceramics delicately hover on high shelves, and irregular felted fashion headwear competes for attention in the back display. Even the dandelion-esque figures painted on the wall make you think: Oh, that’s kind of “random.” Don’t be deceived by the decadence, the clear beauty of bamboo centerpieces and the turn-of-the-century billiards table masquerading as proper furniture. If Random Tea Room were truly being honest with you, I’d be writing a radar for a “Meticulous Tea Room.” Homemade masala chai is prepared every day—the spices ground by hand, and each teacup is chosen for its aesthetic compliment to the gorgeous pots presented to patrons eager for tea-L.C. Note: there are 40+ teas to choose from, including special blends for special people. Be quizzical and it will serve you well.
