What You'll Get
Raiding local trees and throwing their leaves in boiling water cuts down on aphid infestations, but it won't make a good cup of tea. Enjoy leaf water made from ingestion-appropriate plants with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a Royal Tea lunch for one at Simpson House Tea Room (a $24 value), located in Chester Springs.
Nested in a restored Victorian farmhouse, Simpson House Tea Room welcomes guests to partake in the elegant tradition of afternoon tea, offering more than 100 loose-leaf teas and assorted small bites. The Royal Tea begins with fruit compote to clear the palate, followed by a mixed field-greens salad tossed with vinaigrette. Six tea sandwiches, including cream cheese and olive, chicken salad, cream cheese with jam, egg salad, and cucumber, delight diners with savory, crisp flavors. Loose-leaf teas include traditional standbys such as earl grey and english breakfast, more exotic flavors such as mango mist, and selectively cross-bred teas such as lavender earl grey, the drink of choice for British astronauts carving the lyrics to "Rule Britannia!" into the moon. A scone complements a personal pot of tea, and the dessert plate beckons diners with its cornucopia of miniature meal-enders.
The white-pillared farmhouse's wraparound porch, green shutters, and bright roof welcome weary travelers with time-worn elegance. Inside, dainty chairs and petite tables bring guests back to their past lives as a lord, lady, or the queen's royal napkin.
