For younger connoisseurs, nothing satisfies the palate like glitter and raw macaroni paired with a full-bodied, oaky Elmer's glue. Celebrate an adult version of epicurean matrimony with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a tea pairing with cheese, chocolate, or gelato (a $14 value) at Wystone's World Teas in Lakewood.

Wystone's World Teas offers more than 150 varieties of whole tea, loose-leaf tea, and accessories from around the world, and teaches customers about each tea's history and brewing recommendations. Three tea and cheese pairings adorn the menu, including medium sharp cheddar with queen's China oolong, a spunky orchid-flavored brew with enough attitude to match the sharp cheddar. Smooth-talking milk chocolate and mild-mannered formosa oolong are one of a trio of tea-and-chocolate pairs, while a seasonal rotation of fresh-made gelatos play cool, creamy yin to the sultry yang of hot teas. Pairings are presented by an expert who will introduce curious tea quaffers to complex flavors and break down the brewing process.

Wy Livingston, a former corporate executive, ditched the life of boardrooms and diamond-encrusted mouse pads for a more holistic enterprise. The soothing tea-green walls of her Belmar cafe harmonize with steeping pots of tabletop sencha, and the furnishings bring to mind a cozy Japanese teahouse.

  • Fantastic tea, customer service and a vibe that is simply the best. – Stephanie J.
  • This place is nice--outdoor patios, indoor tables, tea bar, and lots of stuff on the menu from traditional British tea service to real food. The tea was great and so were the dessert & scones we ordered. – cindy b.

Wystone's World Teas

Three green leaves and a small, blooming bud rest upon the globe. It’s an appropriate logo for Wystone's World Teas, given that they carry more than 150 loose and whole-leaf teas from around the world. These are the ingredients the tea bar’s teatenders use to craft beverages such as Japanese green teas. Tea also spills over into the bar's menu which includes a tea infused oatmeal, grilled pear salad, and turkey sandwich. The sweet notes of the beverage even flavor such desserts as the African Rooibos carrot cakes, which come topped with Caramel Rooibos–tea cream frosting.

Private and daily tea tastings give guests the chance to learn about the drink's preparation, origin, and three purest forms: dry leaf, infused leaf, and leaf that looks a little like Larry Bird. During these one-hour sessions, participants sip on five to seven different teas while snacking on chocolate, cheese, and fruit. Wystone also sells teapots and glassware in-store and online and gives back to the community by donating a portion of their profits to the local nonprofits they feature in their store on weekdays.
