Like steam engines and cryogenically frozen sea monkeys, tea leaves come to life with just a little hot water. Harness the transformative power of hydration with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of tea at PrimaTea, located inside The Gems of Nature in Wheeling.

The purveyors at PrimaTea brew an eclectic collection of leaves from around the world for tastings in their aromatic shop. Broken- or full-leaf black teas ($4.50+) help customers greet the morning with a caffeinated kick, and an array of herbal teas ($4.50–$14.80) comes from sources such as chamomile flowers, yerba mate plants, and Santa’s peppermint-patty patch. Visitors can quiz knowledgeable sales assistants on color, texture, and aroma as they search for specialized vintages or try new varieties. Minimally processed green teas sport subtle hues of mint or tropical mango, and red, vibrant cups of rooibos ($4.50–$12.50) carry caffeine-free salutations all the way from South Africa. PrimaTea also outfits flavor seekers with a collection of teapots and teaware to facilitate teatimes and provide summer homes for talking dormice.

Prima Tea

Prima Tea proffers myriad teas, ranging from black, green, and oolong to matcha, herbal, and fruit-infused selections. Large-leaf pu-erh teas arrive in cake or loose-leaf form, and flowering tea balls and pre-assembled tea bags bloom into flavorful concoctions. Ornately sculpted, colorful teapots and mug sets tap into the art of Eastern cultures as they feature faunal designs such as owls and monkeys.

Tea of the Month memberships connect drinkers with a different hand-blended tea every month, as well as complimentary, leaf-themed gifts perfect for paying back loans from giving trees. The Prima Tea staff advertises the potential health benefits specific to each of its teas, including the reduction of high blood pressure, cholesterol, and risk of heart disease.
