What You'll Get

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 free 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.


Yelpers give Communitea an average of 3.5 stars.

  • Pleasant staff, comfortable environment, good wifi. I have had tea and a bagel with cream cheese and jelly, and enjoyed both. Have been here a couple of times and will continue to return. – sanguine p., Yelp
  • This is probably my favorite little cafe in NYC. It's not so ginormous as to attract the stroller set (like some places in Brooklyn) and yet it's not a tiny little 2 table place. – A.M.L., Yelp
