Best New Tea House

Eat out awards

Time Out New York has nominated Amai for Best New Tea House in New York City. I’m really honored. Amai has always been about enjoying tea (and something sweet along with it) and we enjoy sharing our collection with everyone from tea novice to enthusiast. If you have a moment and would like to vote, you can do it online at timeoutnewyork.com/eatoutawards.

Thank you everyone!

Hi kelli, I’ve been an avid reader (though less-than-avid commented) ever since you started lovescool. I just want you to know that your story is such an inspiration to me, and to have followed your story from the day you decided to leave your old career and venture into uncharted territory is just such a great privilege. Please do continue to post stories about your new store! :) I live a world away (in Asia) and dream of seeing the amai store. All the best!
