Like Olympic swimmers and gremlins, tea leaves only reveal their true power after being dunked in water. Unleash hidden strength with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of hookah, turkish coffee, and persian tea at Darband Tea House.
At Darband Tea House patrons sip Middle-Eastern teas and coffees and smoke flavoured hookah without inhaling any tobacco, nicotine or tar. Nip at a cup of turkish coffee ($1.95) among Darband's earthy wall coverings and eclectic furniture, or warm over-yodeled larynxes with an assortment of persian teas ($1.95), including green tea, oolong, red tea, and black tea. Hookah smoking combines fruity tastes with the pastime of melancholy caterpillars, and patrons can partake in more than 25 flavours such as strawberry, mint, and watermelon ($9.50/person). Open late and licensed by the Victoria Island Health Authorities, Darband Tea House is the only licensed hookah establishment in Victoria.
