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 $18, you get tea service for two at Mission Houses Museum Café and Tea Parlor (a $39.90 value).
Nestled in the luscious garden oasis of a historic missionary house, Mission Houses Museum Café and Tea Parlor immerses guests with bountiful varieties of tea, sandwiches, petite pleasure cakes, and exotic, leafy cups of mirth. The Lucia Holman's Tea package inaugurates balmy afternoons with assorted tea sandwiches served on an elegant platter ($39.90 for two). A medley of merry dessert pastries saunter across the table, stringing along drooling tongues and lazy suitors as freshly baked scones dance alongside homemade lemon curd and devonshire cream. Loose-leaf teas pour from a charitable spout caressing shallow cups with a warm splash of worldly beverages. Tea service is only valid on Fridays and Saturdays, and you must call ahead with an alphorn to make a reservation.
