Serengeti Teas & Spices is affordably priced so the shop that just debuted on FDB/8th Avenue by 122nd Street has us dropping by quite often and noticing something new each time. We knew the owner was a rockstar when it comes to finding the best blends in African and Asian teas but the little skull espresso cups on the counter had us stay for a shot of coffee to see what they were all about on our last visit. This espresso offering is topped off with the whipped milk of your choice and sprinkled with a few saffron threads to finish things off. Needless to say, everything was on point.
