¨Even before you take a sip, a cup of tea can transport you. The aroma of leaves opened and unraveled by heat can whisk you into a heady repose, olfactory memory taking you back to the lush, moss-carpeted woods of your childhood.¨

Experts, press and blogs reviews

¨(…) With such a creative team, it’s no surprise that every detail of the business was completely planned out. Even the Bellocq tea canisters are custom designed, and the tea, itself is pretty fabulous, .¨

¨(…) we literally gasped. From the Venetian plaster walls, to the pink velvet upholstery, we felt like we stepped into a little jewel box.¨

The Design Sponge

¨Just get her talking about the idea behind, say, blend No. 12, aka Le Hammeau, and you’ll find yourself settling into the faded rose-colored seats in the back room and listening to her soliloquy on the scent of the “peasant” clothing worn by Marie Antoinette at Versailles — the ham eau — that she donned to milk cows in her pretend rustic village¨

Edible Brooklyn

¨I left with the very best tea education straight from two of the owners. We hope to feature some Bellocq Tea in our store soon!¨


¨The owners have been known to trek to far-flung locations in search of the best ingredients.¨

Atlas Obscura

¨Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the entrance.

What lies behind it is a treasure trove of the good stuff.

The shop isn’t very big, but each and every corner is filled with something exotic, rare, and stunning.¨

@lilipiache - ¨Favorite tea place in Brooklyn💚¨
@clfsummers - for my latest @onekingslane column, I got into tea-drinking - and got to go to the most treasured tea source, @bellocq, to do it.
@misspotterphd - I've always liked the idea of sanctuary. In the medieval times, both the innocent and the guilty could throw themselves against a church door and gain shelter.
@thecocktailpartychef - A @bellocq inspired canapé - tea smoked tofu (smoked rice and tea in silver dish) with edamame & Lapsang souchong gelee
@humbletealeaf - Bellocq did really a great job when it comes to presentation at their little "tea atelier" and packaging as well (tins & paper packaging). Attention to detail always pays off in my opinion. In a way it's showing respect to the product and the customer.
dominomag - "Hey, it's @heydavina taking over Domino's feed today! It's been so cold in New York, so I wanted to share some cute, cozy, plant-iful (see what I did there?) interiors with you to help get over these winter vibes. This one here is from @bellocq, a charming little tea atelier out in Greenpoint."
