Teany itself is a tea room, of the modern style. It's in NY (tea-ny) and it's small (teeny) - and thus the name. Moby is co-owner, with his ex-girlfriend Kelly Tisdale. The book chronicles the beginnings of the tea room and leaves us with all kinds of interesting tidbits and recipes. My friend Amanda is a fan of the "top-secret chili". I am looking forward to someday trying the chocolate and green tea pudding (with soy or rice milk). The lavender lemonade is just about the prettiest cold beverage I've ever seen!
If you've read the book, I'd love to hear your opinion!
