Tea shops bring to mind dainty cups, square sandwiches, and all manner of cuteness—very Laura Ashley. But despite the pink on the walls, that does not describe SYMPATHY FOR THE KETTLE, which wears its rock 'n' roll front and center. Jodi Holiday's teeny East Village spot will meet all your tea needs (including tea-infused cookies) without trying to Brit things up; there're more tattoos than scones.
