Colonists asserted their independence at the Boston Tea Party by lulling British officers to sleep with cups of chamomile, which left them defenseless against marker mustaches. Harness the revolutionary power of tea 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 brew steepers at Nanna’s Teas cull their collection of teas from around the world, augmenting them with fresh sandwiches, soups, and pastries baked daily. With friends or friendly mirages of 7-foot rabbits in tow, patrons enter Nanna’s and soak in the astounding array of teapots housing brewable bags that come in an array of flavors including rosehips, earl gray, and apple pie. While basking in the frame-worthy sights of outdoor gardens or their tea dates chugging bottles of honey, guests can soothe stomachs with a selection of piquant and potent tea sandwiches such as smoked salmon and chives, apple sausage, or the florally indebted cream cheese and flowers. Side orders of asian slaw salad and savory or sweet scones support midday noshing like vending-machine whisperers, as do fruit-based preserves and dessert-rich orders of double devon cream.
The breakfast option is now redeemable for brunch on Sundays between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the 2200 Oneida St. location, beginning 4/8. The high tea option is redeemable Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the 7770 E Iliff Ave. location.
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.
