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, sandwiches, and gourmet desserts at Savannah Tea Company.
Savannah Tea Company sates teatime cravings with more than 100 loose-leaf and herbal teas and a lunch menu of house-made soups, sandwiches, quiche, and desserts. Amid brightly painted walls and rustic décor, customers sip earl-grey blends, white tea, south african red-bush rooibos, and japanese sencha green tea from delicate cups or Big Gulp containers brought from home. Noontime cravings are quelled with paninis such as roast beef and smoked gouda ($8.95) or turkey and basil ($8.95). Guests can also settle in for a full tea service, during which mouths devour scones and muffins with clotted cream, the daily quiche selection, assorted sandwiches, and gourmet desserts ($21.95) within one of the quaint teashop's airy, elegant dining rooms. Any tea can be naturally decaffeinated by request, allowing customers to effortlessly sleep through a lunchtime soliloquy from an imaginary friend.
