Communitea - Hunters Point: $5 for $10 Worth of Tasty Teas, Homemade Scones, Savory Paninis, and More at Communitea

Without expert tea makers, communities would brew satchels of leaves in hot tubs and eat crumpets with Gatorade. Keep Jacuzzi filters clear of leaf muck with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of food and drinks at Communitea, located in Long Island City. Communitea only takes cash, so if you want to exceed the cost of your Groupon, make sure to hit up an ATM or shake a buffalo-nickel tree before your visit.

The friendly baristas at Communitea brew aromatic teas and coffees alongside savory breakfast and lunch dishes. Saunter in to sample organic and loose-leaf teas ($1.75–$3.50), which come brewed fresh by the tender, caring hands of an actual staff member. Sugary baked treats ($2.25–$2.75) such as scones come house-made each day, and solid-food opponents may wish to sip a fresh-fruit smoothie ($4.50–$5.50). If heartier rations beckon your belly, nosh on the rotating selection of salads ($4.50–$8.50), sandwiches ($7.50), or paninis ($7.75). For individuals looking to start a tea colony in their home, each staff member is happy to dish out the hottest tips on the tastiest and safest tea-making methods.

Like any great urban meeting spot, Communitea bathes each Macbook in a shower of natural sunlight and a silky lather of WiFi. There's an array of board games to entertain you while you sip and munch, too. Savvy screen-gazers may recognize its comfy corner environs and chalkboard walls from the film Baby Mama, as well as from episodes of Gossip Girl and Ugly Betty.

Reviews

Communitea has been featured prominently on multiple episodes of the hit TV show Gossip Girl. BlackBook magazine gave the shop a favorable review, and Yelpers give Communitea an average of 3.5 stars:

  • Has all the hipness of anything in the 'Burg, though, sans pretense: it's a petite teashop with a massive selection and some pretty decent bites (the pressed paninis are, for the cheap few bucks they'll run you, huge and solid for taste). Afternoon tea service is cheap, a nice way to kill a few hours. – BlackBook
  • This might be my favorite cafe in all of New York. I was in love within the first 15 minutes of setting up my work area! – Jessica L., Yelp
  • this place just gets better and better with every visit. – alice x., Yelp
  • I am a huge Gossip Girl fan, and most of the first season was shot in this coffee shop. – Amy D., Yelp

"Coffee great, food so, so"
The place is large which is great if you have a large gathering of friend or needs pace to study/read. Coffee and tea selection is nice, but good is not as fresh, tasty it good as 51st Cafe. Salads are dismal and sandwiches are okay. The grilled cheese is a winner though.

"cool place for tea! A hidden gem"
we went in twice - once for tea and then for breakfast. Staff is helpful and service is good. There are a ton of tea options so it can take awhile to choose.
