What You'll Get
Thirsty explorers systematically shredded, steeped, and drank their way through brews of jaguar whiskers, snail shells, and goats before finally stumbling upon tea leaves. Celebrate the culmination of this quest for piquancy with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward a Tea*vent at American Tea Room in Beverly Hills.
American Tea Room’s tea-inspired tasting events, or Teavents, showcase a calming blend of global flavor and variety in a world of growing teascape uncertainty. Each cultural Teavent invites sippers to sample cups from across international waters with food pairings to match. The Celebrating Chinese New Year Teavent legally teleports tipplers to the banks of the Yangtze River to treat intrepid tongues to Chinese leaves and gourmet snacks ($40). Variety-specific Teavents highlight the taste and health merits of green, white, black, and oolong draughts, and the introductory Teavent guides novices through the ins and outs of leaf lore in a class-like setting. Each Teavent couples tasty cupfuls with a goodie bag that includes a tea-tasting cup as well as a 20% discount toward American Tea Room’s beverages and merchandise. Teavents start at $30, which can be covered entirely by the value of one Groupon, and can cost as much as $60; see the Teavents schedule for dates and pricing information.
