Tea connoisseurs take note: there's a discreet haven in midtown Manhattan with 100 loose-leaf varieties from all over the world — and with every type of pot and glass for serving them.

If you want to get your fix at a place that's serious about its tea — and dumplings — without being pretentious, then Radiance Tea House & Books is my under-the-radar spot.
