Like Olympic swimmers and gremlins, tea leaves only reveal their true power after being dunked in water. Unleash hidden strength with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get five small pots of hot or cold tea at Steeps the Urban Tea House (up to a $27.50 value), valid at the Stony Plain Road and Whyte Avenue locations.
Steeps the Urban Tea House warms and refreshes its visitors with more than 100 loose-leaf tea brews hailing from a range of countries and crop altitudes. With a five-pot punch card, patrons garner any small-size pot bearing the pre-steeped tea of their choice. Guests can also hand-pick an eclectic teacup to protect sippables such as Estate Bukhial or organic English breakfast black teas from roving philosophers and double-agent biscuits. Green genmaicha, organic ceremonial matcha, and white leopard snow buds teas fan their leaves in a synchronized swim; cinnamon-fire and lemongrass-zinger herb blends playfully prod taste buds. While ensconced in the teahouse's modern interior, customers may also sip a sweeter array of fruit teas such as kiwi-strawberry and banana smoothie and take advantage of the teahouse's free WiFi. Though not included in this deal, Steeps also boasts loose tea accessories such as cups, strainers, and bait for hunting wild rooibos leaves.
