A destination for exploration, Whispering Leaves Herb & Sip Shop features an immense inventory of teas, herbs, and spices to add new aromas and flavors to meals and tea time. Certified organic teas such as yerba mate and pu-erh sit side by side with boldly caffeinated teas such as earl grey and english breakfast. Aromatic blends of non-caffeinated tea combine the flavor and scent of fruits and herbs, such as raspberry rose petal and organic ginger. Once visitors have found their chosen tea, they can take the leaves home or have the tea brewed so they can sit in the caf?, sip their steamy beverage, and interpret messages in the fog that forms on their glasses.

Chefs also whip up peking duck, dim-sum-style dumplings, and smoothies blended from fruit, tapioca, and condensed milk, which comes from cows that have only read the CliffsNotes recipe for regular milk.
Since its humble south Philadelphia beginnings in the 1990s, PrimoHoagies has quickly expanded throughout the region and garnered several awards on the strength of its cold-cut sandwiches, made with Thumann's brand of gourmet meats and cheeses.
