Once considered a dying tradition, the convention of drinking afternoon tea has enjoyed a surge in popularity with the realization that Red Bull doesn't pair well with watercress finger sandwiches or already overstimulated March hares. Enjoy a tranquil afternoon tradition with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of tea and more at Angelina's Tea Shoppe, located in the Stratford Place Shopping Center in Winston-Salem.
Angelina's Tea Shoppe is a haven of steeped serenity, boasting more than 500 varieties of tea, as well as a vast selection of tea-related accoutrements. Customers longing for the caffeinated civility of high tea can choose from hundreds of loose-leaf options, such as Versailles lavender Earl Grey, Night of the Iguana chai (both $1.75 per ounce), or Golden Monkey black tea ($3.95 per ounce). Impatient tea-totalers can tote their tea to go or opt to sip it in the serenity of Angelina's reading room, a cozy corner inundated with overstuffed couches, used books, and free wireless Internet. The quaint tea shop also sells a multitude of pekoe-related products including teapots, cups, bird-shaped mesh lemon squeezers ($4.95), and enticing edibles such as Sticky Fingers scone mix ($5.95), the official baking mix of the Rolling Stones' 1971 UK tour.
