Raiding local trees and throwing their leaves in boiling water cuts down on aphid infestations, but it won't make a good cup of tea. Enjoy leaf-water made from ingestion-appropriate plants with today's Groupon: for $17, you get two full afternoon teas at The House of Windsor (a $32 value), located in Lakewood.
With its authentic British tearoom hospitality, refined quaintness, and hearty traditional British fare, The House of Windsor offers an elegant European-style light meal without having to jet across the pond. With this deal, tea-timers are seated at tables covered in lace cloths for a delightful full afternoon tea. Gather your friends and wax poetic over a gathering of six finger sandwiches, a selection of fresh fruit, and the agonizing choice of whether to nibble on trifle or petit four. Tea-sippers can also nosh on The House of Windsor's scones, made fresh on-site and complemented by a serving of jam and clotted cream. You'll also get a bottomless teapot, achieved through a complicated bending of the space-tea continuum. Although the House of Windsor's dining room brims with charm and class, diners can feel comfortable wearing jeans or shorts.
- There is something special in leisurely having your tea out a china cup while munching of delicate tea sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and delicious, small pastries. This place is not to be missed! – Elaine, Yahoo! Local
- I highly recommend the trifle, as it is the best I've ever had. The scone are also the best I've ever had, and recommend to get additional scones to take home for breakfast the next day. – Elizabeth T., Yelp, 7/21/10
