Lecturing your dachshund nonstop on the pros and cons of converting your front yard into a Pat Sajak–themed mini-golf course is bound to make you thirsty after a while. Today's Groupon offers a superb moistener for dry throats and mouths: for $10, you get $20 worth of full-bodied teas, delicious eats, dinners, and adult beverages at The Roswell Teahouse. This Groupon is not valid on teapots, accessories, or loose-leaf teas.
The Roswell Teahouse's extensive tea menu features coveted house blends, such as the anti-aging blend (full of antioxidants, with a mix of white, oolong, green, and rooibos teas), and a cultivated collection of blacks, greens, tisanes, rooiboses, and more. Try the chocolate-mint-flavored tea or a healthy green tea that tastes like Earl Grey. Celebrate fall with an apple-cinnamon-tasting white tea or orange marzipan rooibos. For more extended enjoyment, schedule a high-afternoon tea with friends to get daintily decadent with a three-tier tray of fresh-baked scones and house-made lemon curd, tea sandwiches, pastries, and fruit. Plus, you'll get a bottomless pot of tea with unlimited flavor changes and the soup du jour ($24 a person—reservations are required for afternoon tea services).
Aside from its well-steeped selections, The Roswell Teahouse's lunch menu features savory treats such as a Thai coconut curry rice bowl with your choice of veggies, chicken, or shrimp ($10.95+). Or try a brie sandwich on whole-grain bread topped with raspberry/jalapeno spread ($9.95). A wine and beer list pours out globally imported varietals, lagers, and ales. Other anticipatable edibles include a wide range of desserts and a soon-to-be debuted dinner menu, which will be available on Friday and Saturday evenings within the coming months.
- A very dynamic cuisine: fresh, revitalizing, healthy. An avant garde menu that you won't find anywhere else making this friendly and cozy restaurant a very unique place to be. – Patricia Kalmeijer, Urbanspoon
- There was a wonderful selection of tea, lovely and fragrant (sencha kyoto cherry rose, lemon ginger, and sgt pepper rooibos). The food (scones, lemon curd, pastries, mini sandwiches) was also quite lovely. – Truly S., Yelp
Stationed in an old house of the city's historic district, Roswell Teahouse looks and feels like a relict from the 1920s. But it's not just the appearance that takes guests back in time. For inside, the spirit of high tea lives on. Elegant trays support homemade desserts, scones, and lemon curd, all enjoyed by diners dressed in their afternoon best as they chat and politely arm-wrestle over cups of tea. The 100 different types of leaves hail from across the globe, steeping slowly in a cast-iron tea pot to maximize flavor.
For lunch, Roswell serves a variety of homemade and organic meals, including a Belgian chicken pot pie and green-apple tuna melt. Many of its offerings are designed to improve wellness, such as the beauty booster salad, which comes with omega-3 oils and vitamins.
