Tea—unlike John Grisham novels or Hitchcock-ian love interests—is better when steeped in hot water rather than mystery. Extract the right flavors with today’s Groupon: for $23, you get high tea for two at Nanna’s Teas (a $46 value). High tea is served between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and includes:
- Your choice of tea
- Two sandwiches each
- Asian slaw salad
- One scone and tea biscuit each
- Preserves and double devon cream
The beverage blenders at Nanna’s Teas supplement their world-spanning menu of brews with homemade sandwiches, fresh soups and salads, and pastries that are baked fresh daily. Grab a friend and gab over the percolating medleys of ready teapots as they harmonize the flavors and notes of varying brews such as oolong green tea, darjeeling black tea, and herbal chamomile. Between sips, guests can fill sandwich traps or empty pillbox hats with delicately delectable tea sandwiches such as savory-and-sweet roast beef with pear chutney, smoked salmon and chives, or herbivore-appeasing cream cheese with edible flowers. Midday finger feasts are fetchingly augmented by servings of homemade asian slaw salad, savory or sweet scones, and tea biscuits, and fruit-based preserves accompany each pastry, along with thick and sweet double devon cream, which boasts twice the devon, but none of the guilt.
Nanna's Tea has created a collection of tasty white, green, herbal, and black teas from around the world to marry with its delicate tea sandwiches, soups, and daily-baked pastries. Its picturesque outdoor gardens present a placid locale for visitors decompress while taking formal tea or recharge while chatting over breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The tea-of-the-month club exposes members to a vast array of exotic flavors, and children's tea parties teach tikes how to use the teaspoon to slap the hands of any teddy bear caught hoarding crumpets.
