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 Groupon: for$10, you get $20 worth of high-quality teas and accessories at Cuppa T II Specialty Teas, located in The Mall at Lawson Heights.
Whether in search of a softer caffeine kick or a suitable holiday gift for that special monarch, Cuppa T II Specialty Teas offers a wide array of accoutrements and varieties that celebrate the world's most popular beverage. Choose from approximately 150 loose-leafed varieties, with dozens of heady blacks, delicate greens, smooth whites, and antioxidant-suffused reds (generally $7 for 50g) to awaken sleepy taste buds. Cuppa T II's other sipping selections include flavorful fruit teas like blueberry yogurt and cinnamon plum ($7 for 50g), as well as flowering teas ($2 per blossom) that give customers an alternative to boiling their prom corsages. Once customers have made their selections, they can transform leaves into lattes or tea shots with Cuppa T II's Tea Presso machine.
Steep high tea with accessories like the Tea Infuser ($5.50) which enhances flavor while using fewer leaves. Tea-drinking neophytes can transform plebian palates into aristocratic appetites with the No Fuss Tea Kit ($23), a starter set that has everything except boiling water, which can be purchased at the castle next door.
As of May 4, 2011, Cuppa T II Specialty Teas has moved to a new location on Broadway Avenue.
