Raiding local trees and throwing their leaves in boiling water cuts down on aphid infestations, but it won't make a good cup of tea. Enjoy leaf-water made from ingestion-appropriate plants with today’s side deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of tea and upscale lunch fare at The Arbour Restaurant & Tea Room on the University of Alberta campus. Committed to the preservation of the historic Rutherford House, The Arbour Restaurant & Tea Room is a not-for-profit sanctuary of steeping specializing in afternoon tea, lunch, and dessert. This cozy favourite is a charming respite where tea lovers can loosen their leaves and enjoy a selection of black and herbal teas while munching on a menu of tea-complementing nibbles, including salads, savouries, and baked sweets. Aspiring aristocrats can sip in style during high tea, held at ceiling level with a selection of petite finger sandwiches, scones, and desserts served atop an oversized monocle.
