Balthazar's Ginger Citrus Tea
Balthazar’s Ginger Citrus Tea


80 Spring St, New York, NY 10012

If I couldn’t afford to eat at Balthazar’s, at least I could get a drink from their to-go shack, I thought to myself. Although shack isn’t quite the appropriate diction to describe a place like Balthazar. To preface this place, this famous SoHo French patisserie serves up a small raspberry chocolate tart at $6.50.

On Instagram, a stranger raved about Balthazar’s ginger citrus tea and it stuck with me. I doubt a tea can go beyond $5 and decide to get one.
