This article is old, but according to VinePair, this Italian town has a 24 hour wine fountain… better than water, I’d say. I tried searching if this was still true, but couldn’t find any articles past October 2016! I hope it is still true 😉 It would be nice to get there
I like how VinePair is getting into the beer market… kudos!

Yesterday we did a touristy thing in our own city. It was a nice way to spend a cold afternoon in NYC. We went for the Royal afternoon Tea for two at the Bar E/Taj at the Pierre Hotel. They provide each guest with a full pot of tea, with a variety of choices such as black, green and herbal loose teas. I had the chai tea which was very smooth and delicious. The teas are from all over the world. We went for the upgraded tea which was the Royal afternoon tea with champagne brut. There are 3 tea options at The Pierre: traditional tea, cost: $130; Royal afternoon tea with champagne brut, cost $160; and Royal afternoon tea with champagne rose: cost, $170. You also get an assortment of about 8 different finger sandwiches, fresh scones and petit fours along with their house made jam and Devonshire clotted cream. I have been to London many times and have to say that these scones were the best I have ever had in my life. I have included some photos. You can also get this tea with a Groupon or Living Social coupon and save some more money for an amazing experience. Check it out. You can use my referral link to join Groupon and once joined, type in Pierre Hotel tea. Let me know if you enjoy it!
There are other teas in NYC. Here is a link to someone else’s blog that reviewed them. Some of our friends said the Lady Mendl tea was fantastic.
Check out the edible magazines online, they cover most of NY, I have also seen them in San Francisco.
