Like Olympic swimmers and gremlins, tea leaves only reveal their true power after being dunked in water. Unleash hidden strength with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 gift card toward tea, bubble tea, and Asian fare at Grandpa's Tea House in Arcadia.
The brew specialists at Grandpa's Tea House offer a seldom-rivaled selection of thirst-quenching green teas, invigorating black teas, and delightful smoothies. The menu contains more sweet tongue ticklers than Thanksgiving contains domestic pie fights, with choices such as passion-fruit iced tea, in black or green ($3.55), and honey green milk tea ($3.55). The tea house also offers a wide range of shaved-ice drinks ($5.25), including bubble-laden boba tea, ideal for use as a finger-puppet jacuzzi, and ingredients such as tangy lychee-coconut jelly, which infuses mouths with tropical breezes. Snack-size Asian classics abound as well, including deep-fried chunks of tofu ($3.95) and spicy Korean beef with rice ($6.95).
