About Us
The Parlor

Located on Morton, just south of bustling Bleecker Street in West Village, Bosie Tea Parlor beckons city-dwellers with its atmosphere of serenity and just enough energy. Here you’ll find a selection of over 100 hand-sourced and blended fine loose leaf teas developed by our resident Tea Master Kiley Holliday, along with world-class pastry and macarons hand-crafted by our third-generation French Pasty Chef, Damien Herrgott.

Beyond the unparalleled teas, pastries, and macarons, Bosie also offers a select savory menu using only the freshest ingredients, carefully sourced and largely organic. We offer Lunch Monday through Friday, a weekend Brunch, as well as Tea Service and Dinner seven days a week. Bosie also has a select Wine and Beer list, carefully chosen to pair beautifully with all of our sweet and savory menu items.

An ideal setting for morning and afternoon tea, Bosie is also a top destination for special occasions like bridal and baby showers, engagement parties, and birthdays.

Not plastered in pink and frills, Bosie is a tea parlor that men enjoy just as much as women.

We invite you to explore our website, read our menus, and of course, come in and meet us. At Bosie you can enjoy our sweet and savory selection in house or for take-away, and our teas are also available for retail sale.

Reservations are not required, but they are suggested for parties of six or more, especially on weekends.

The People
Damien Herrgott, Executive Pastry Chef

Damien Herrgott grew up in the townhome above his parents’ pâtisserie in Besançon, France. A third generation pâtissier, Chef Herrgott began working in the kitchen of Pâtisserie La Panetière as a toddler, performing simple tasks like placing a hazelnut atop a chocolate bonbon. As Chef Herrgott grew, so did his responsibilities, and at age fifteen he was a full-time apprentice in his parents’ pastry kitchen.

Being from a small town, Herrgott set his sights on Paris, and at 20 he relocated and took a position at the famed Ladurée, where he remained for one year. When “the god of pastry” Pierre Hermé was opening his first pâtisserie in Paris, Herrgott was hired as the pastry chef pre-opening. Herrgott stayed with PH for four years, opening two more Paris shops. One of his mentors and greatest creative influences, PH continues to inspire Herrgott’s work to this day.

In 2005, Herrgott was hired pre-opening to be the executive pastry chef at Bouley Bakery in Tribeca, where he developed the full line of pâtisserie for the new shop. Herrgott remained at Bouley Bakery for two years before moving on to head the pastry kitchen at the Michelin starred La Goulue on Madison.

Returning to his roots and his passion for the products in a pastry shop, Herrgott was hire pre-opening as the executive pastry chef for Bosie Tea Parlor, where he enjoys complete creative freedom. As head of the kitchen, Chef Herrgott designs all the pastries, macarons, and other sweet offerings as well as the savory menu and tea service.

Kiley Holliday, Tea Master

Certified by the American Tea Masters Association, Kiley Holliday is the youngest female Tea Master, also known as a Tea Sommelier, in the United States. To earn the distinguished title, Holliday studied all aspects of tea, including history, taste-testing, blending, and pairing, and underwent rigorous examinations including blind tastings. She has since served as the featured tea expert numerous times on Martha Stewart Living radio and in Real Simple magazine; and in 2010, Holliday developed a custom blended tea for InStyle magazine’s holiday gift guide.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Holliday moved to New York City to attend New York University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in History. Holliday also holds an MA in History from NYU. Holliday’s interest in tea began when, as an undergrad, she decided to switch from espresso to loose leaf teas and found it gave her a more calm and focused energy. From there, she began to appreciate the wide diversity of teas and a new passion was born.

In 2007, Holliday met Nicky Dawda while on a yoga retreat in Guatemala. They became fast friends based on their like-minded interests in fine tea, healthy living, and yoga. Following this, the two decided to join their passions by collaborating on l’Age de Thé, a company selling fine, artisanal tea blends. Together, Holliday and Dawda have traveled to the tea-growing regions of the world, hiking through jungles and over mountains, to source the product for their hand-blended teas.

In 2010, Holliday and Dawda wanted to take their tea business to the next level, and with the help of family and friends, they conceived and opened Bosie Tea Parlor, named after famed tea-lover Oscar Wilde’s lover. Today, Bosie Tea Parlor sells over 100 hand-picked and blended loose leaf teas under the L’Age de Thé brand.
