9780142005057: Teany Book: Stories, Food, Romance, Cartoons and, of Course, Tea

From the ninety-three teas on offer to the tempeh turkey club, Teany’s mix of delicious vegetarian and vegan cuisine with a mellow atmosphere has made it a hit with the Lower East Side denizens who make it a habit to attend Teany’s casual afternoon tea (cucumber sandwiches anyone?). Since opening in 2002, internationally acclaimed musician Moby and his partner Kelly Tisdale have made Teany a home base for all things Moby—a hipster hangout, chic contemporary tea shop, and host to political and charity events.

With Teany Book, Moby and Kelly distill Teany into an idiosyncratic yet functional gift book that will teach the art of making Teany’s special lavender iced tea and creating nosh-worthy vegan lunches that even carnivores will enjoy, while also functioning as a popular history of the Lower East Side. In addition to instructions on how to become a true tea connoisseur and vegan chef du jour, Teany Book includes witty vignettes on Teany’s history, anecdotes from Moby and Kelly, and tea-based health and beauty tips, such as how to cure a hangover with green tea. At once a unique glance at the culture of downtown New York and a quirky cookbook highlighting a nutritious and beneficial diet, Teany Book is a perfect purchase for tea fans, foodies, and hipsters alike.

From Publishers Weekly:

Teany, the quirky restaurant located in New York City's Lower East Side and owned by musician Moby and his ex-girlfriend, is known for serving delicious vegetarian food and over 100 flavors of tea. Fortunately, this highly entertaining book is much more than just a behind-the-scenes look at the eatery. Like the offbeat Teany, it is an exercise in eccentricity. Filled with everything from creative meat-free recipes (both for food and beauty aids) to a list of 23 things that are preferable to shrubbery, this scrapbook is both useful and absurdly hilarious. It opens by relaying a fake history of Teany, then captures the eclectic mood of the restaurant with a bizarre collection of anecdotes, cartoons, hangover cures, random customer interviews and song playlists. An abundance of information about the joys of tea and vegetarian eating, along with plenty of useless but amusing tidbits ("2/3 of Teany customers would rather go back in time than go to the moon!") round out this witty book, which will motivate readers who have never been to the trendy café to visit and join in the fun.
