What do melt-in-your-mouth gourmet chocolates and sense-clearing, smooth, loose-leaf teas have in common? Besides indulging your senses, the two are both chock-full of health-enhancing antioxidants. Frisco’s HALO Tea Lounge & Chocolate Bar serves specialty teas and chocolates that are not just good, they’re good for you. With today’s Groupon, you get $25 toward anything in the store for just $10—that’s 60% off a delicious path toward antioxidized health.
HALO’s wide selection of chocolates includes delicately crafted truffles, chocolate roses, chocolate trays, Norman Love chocolates, and even chocolate paint. HALO also serves a wide range of other loose-leaf teas, such as Moroccan mint green tea, kiwi/pear white tea, coconut oolong tea, and Belgian chocolate black tea. It also offers sweet and creamy vanilla, traditional, and decaf chai. Loose-leaf teas differ from tea-bag teas because the large, loose leaves contain more of the chemicals and essential oils that result in a truly impeccable cup of tea.
HALO also specializes in its customizable HALO FIT (Fruit Iced Tea), a unique concoction made solely with fruit (no syrups or powders). Choose your tea (white, green, or black), your fruit (blackberry, black cherry, blueberry, mango, peach, pineapple, raspberry, or strawberry), and your style (shaken, half-blended, or full-blended); the result is a natural, nutrient-filled smoothie-like blend you can feel good about drinking.
You know those emphatic faces you make to express how delicious something tastes? Chocolate tastes even better when your eyes roll back in your head and you say, “Uh ma gawd, vis is dewishus.” But if you ever did that alone, strangers would think you were strange, because it is strange to be expressive while alone. That’s why you have to tell your friends about today’s deal, so you can make those faces over delicious teas and chocolates together and enhance your tasting experience.
There aren’t too many online reviews for HALO, but one Yelper and two Insider Pages reviewers give the place a perfect five stars: > * the starbucks of tea…great place, great selections. come check it out. – vincent L., Yelp > * I have two little ones and they LOVED the chocolate covered sunflower seeds and Fruit Iced Teas.

I found this place and they serve Tea and chocolate in a cafe environment, whats not to love. – Timmy T., Insider Pages
