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 $24, you get a Royal Tea lunch for two at Simpson House Tea Room in Chester Springs (a $48 value). Lunches include:
- Two soups
- Two mixed-field-greens salads with vinaigrette
- 12 tea sandwiches
- Two homemade scones
- Assorted desserts
- Two personal pots of tea
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 two servings of soup, followed by a mixed-field-greens salad tossed with vinaigrette. Twelve 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 with homemade lemon curd, chantilly cream, and jam 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 lords, ladies, or the queen's royal napkins.
