Naivetea, the only U.S. company to focus on Taiwanese oolong teas, will provide the caffeine. At the salon, you'll get to sip iced peach; hot dong ding, a sweet tea with notes of toasted rice and caramel; hot shan lin shi, which has notes of fresh flowers and leaves; and wen shan bao zhong, which is soft with light and smooth body.
The unusual eats will come courtesy of Tell Tale Preserve Company and will include cucumber granité with shaved Marcona almonds and mint, bánh mì financiers and salmon rillettes on seaweed brioche. You high-tea purists don't have to worry; there also will be the requisite scones and clotted cream.
There will be two seatings, one at 1 p.m. and the other at 3:30 p.m. The tea costs $55. To make reservations, email email@example.com or call 415-643-4894.
