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 ranging from Japanese green teas to tea-infused cocktails. Tea also spills over into the bar's menu of breakfast, lunch, and light-dinner fare, since many dishes––including breakfast burritos, paninis, and Greek pitzas––are accompanied by Kenyan tea-roasted red-bliss potatoes or tea-smoked chicken. 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, gelato, 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.

Brewing organic, fair-trade, and shade-grown beans, Kona Coffee proves its commitment to a well-balanced environment, economy, and suntan. Java jewels are sourced from poverty-stricken areas around the world, but each batch of the house's bean juice is prepared with at least 30% Hawaiian-collected Kona beans to maintain their signature taste. Sip a classic cappuccino ($2.35–$3.15) to start your day on a foamy foot, or enjoy a kona mocha ($3.15–$3.90), mint mocha ($3.15–$3.90), or caramel-apple latte ($3.15–$3.90) for a midday sweet treat. Kona's spicy and refreshing chai frappe ($3.90–$4.45) provides a tasty cool-down alternative to climbing into a freezer on a hot summer day, and fresh-fruit smoothies ($4.75, for protein powder add $0.85) make it easy to reach fruit-that-doesn't-require-teeth quotas. Barista-made beverages range between $2 and $5, and brew-it-yourself beans generally sell for $7 to $8 for half a pound and $12 to $14 for a full pound. Coffee connoisseurs or wannabeans can use this Groupon toward a bag of 100% Kona Fancy beans ($40/lb.).

Cold Stone's ice cream inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings, as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola and black licorice. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as Irish cream and butter pecan. Then make certain no one will try and steal a taste by topping it protectively with brownies, gumballs, and cherry pie filling. Whatever Frankencream you create, it'll be scooped cold off the grill into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Cold Stone's ice cream and toppings vary between seasons and location, and they also offer sorbet and an array of lighter toppings such as fruit and honey. Ice-cream creations run between $4 and $6, depending on size.
