Collecting thousands of years of tradition under one roof isn't easy, but Ten Ren Tea Time's purveyors have been working on perfecting the ancient art of tea since 1953. Originating in Taiwan, the operation eventually expanded to more than 100 locations across the globe, spreading the gospel of fine teas and their near-endless varieties. While walking among the shelves and displays, visitors can explore varieties of green, white, and herbal teas, as well as tea pot and tea sets, mesh balls, canisters, and little dumbbells for strengthening pinky fingers.

The bakers at the sister-owned cheesecakery use fresh ingredients to create creamy, handmade confections. This Groupon is good for 12 two-inch microcakes, and you can mix and match among the original flavor, chocolate, strawberry, and cookies 'n' cream to assemble a delicious dozen. The bite-sized baked goods are perfectly portioned to prevent guilt-induced post-cheesecake regret, and as such make a fitting gift for calorie-counting suckers for sweet or someone who underwent a surgical procedure that replaced his or her human mouth with the mouth of a striped bass.

Though she's one of five hosts of ABC's food talk show, The Chew, Carla Hall has no trouble standing out from the crowd. You can tell her apart from her cohosts, such as restaurateur Mario Batali and wellness enthusiast Daphne Oz, in numerous ways: her funky glasses, her penchant for calling out "hootie hoo," or, perhaps most unique of all, her love of homestyle comfort-food cooking.?

Born in Nashville, Hall specializes in Southern staples, made with French techniques she perfected at Maryland's L'Academie de Cuisine. Her creations earned her a slot on two seasons of Bravo's Top Chef, where she earned raves from the judges for her gumbo. The secret behind the stellar dish? Cooking with love. Hall believes the chef's feelings shine through in the food, which is why angry people can only make hot sauce. Hall still cooks with love today, too, whipping up bite-size sweet and savory cookies and creating original recipes for her cookbooks. She recently announced the development of her very first restaurant?Carla Hall?s Southern Kitchen?slated to open in New York City next year. A fast-casual love letter to Nashville, the restaurant will feature iconic Nashville hot chicken and southern sides, which are anchored by Hall?s family recipes and perfected with her personal touches.

Alive Juices' drinks aren't technically alive. They are, however, brimming with natural enzymes and unaltered nutrients?thanks to the fact that the company presses each freshly before bottling and never pasteurizes. Ayurvedic principles and modern nutritional research come together in eight low-calorie juice blends that strike a balance between savory and semisweet. All are made with garlic, sprouts, ginger, lemon, and apple, but also feature combinations such as beets and kale or red bell pepper and mint. The juice-makers punch up their recipes with a blend of herbs and spices, and use USDA-certified organic produce when possible.

Juices are provided as part of weight-loss programs and full cleanses, and may be used as part of meal-replacement plans that also include fruit and nut snacks rather than just pictures of steaks with Xs drawn over them. To sweeten the arrangement even further, Alive Juices also delivers its packages to customers' homes and offices throughout the DC area.
