Like steam engines and cryogenically frozen sea monkeys, tea leaves come to life with just a little hot water. Harness the transformative power of hydration with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cafe fare at Chelsea’s Tea and Gifts. Today's deal is valid during lunch, which is served 11:30 a.m.–3 p.m. Monday–Saturday, and during brunch, which is now served year-round on Sundays 10:30 a.m.–3 p.m. This deal is not valid for afternoon tea.
Located in historical Biltmore Village, Chelsea’s Tea and Gifts transports diners to a Victorian-style parlor with its quaint tearoom décor and a menu of gourmet lunch and brunch fare. Diners can finally utilize years of intense pinkie weightlifting as they sip cups of hot or iced tea or coffee and nosh on midday comestibles such as a chutney-topped homemade quiche served with fruit and salad ($9.95).
Sandwiches arrive with a choice of dill pasta salad, fresh fruit, or kettle-style potato chips, with selections including a trio of smoked turkey, apple, and brie smuggled between slices of multigrain bread and finished with Ninja Porter mustard ($10.95). On Sundays, ladies who brunch may partake of midday classics such as eggs benedict, in which poached eggs, cherry-wood-smoked ham, and a fluffy english muffin arrive dressed to impress in a light hollandaise sauce and their very best velvet knickers ($11.95).
Chelsea's pastoral artwork reflects the ambience of a French or English cottage in the country. Patrons can opt to sit in the dining room, where dainty white chairs line tables topped with floral tablecloths, or at a seating area within the store. The Victorian-style furniture further enchants eyes by displaying rows of European gifts, china, Vera Bradley handbags, and tea, which may be purchased for future enjoyment at a home tea party or in a home bathtub.
