The natural flavors and soothing properties of tea have led many to consider it the most successful use of heat ever, narrowly beating out fire batons and Shrinky Dinks of the Founding Fathers. Get into hot water with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet teas at Fleur de Teas.
Fleur de Teas’ carefully crafted teas steep tongues in over 180 prepackaged flavors gently coaxed from natural ingredients. Strawberry and rose imbue Chinese white tea in the One Thousand Cranes blend ($10.95), a brew originally created to soothe weary construction equipment. Choco Mint Delicious black tea swirls peppermint leaf with white and dark chocolate slivers ($7.35); the Jump Rope blend combines honey bush, licorice root, and rooibos ($4.95). Sippers can hoard steamy treasure in mouth-caves with the hand-rolled Dragon Pearls tea ($14.45), or produce hibiscus-and-vanilla-flavored spit-takes with the Queen of Hearts blend ($9.25).
Fleur de Teas’ pristine, earth-toned walls and geometric black shelves artfully frame the store’s signature green packaging. Glass tables and chairs invite customers for longer stays to learn more about tea varieties, proper preparation, and suitable steeping vessels, such as clay pots or emptied snow globes.
