Tuxis Pond

For years, Savvy Tea has been my go-to for a quality cup of tea when I visit the CT shore. When I heard they moved to a new location in downtown Madison, a few storefronts down from Madison Art Cinemas, I was excited to stop by and check out the new digs.

Gone is the industrial loft feel, and gone is the kitchen, which was probably not the owners main focus anyway. These are tea people. Housed in a cozy antique building with wooden floors and handsome tin ceilings, Tea Savvy has become much more gezellig, as the Dutch say, meaning warm and inviting.

I made small talk over a cup of green, and ended up buying a ball of pu-er marinated in tangerine zest and sweet spices- China’s answer to Mexico’s cafe de olla. I took my cup of tea outside and walked around to the back of the building and enjoyed it by Tuxis Pond.
