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 $10, you get $25 worth of goods from Talbott Teas, an online teashop. You can use the value of your Groupon toward shipping.
Hoarding a head-spinning heap of Google-confounding praise from a bevy of publications and websites, Talbott Teas has garnered a loyal following partial to its gourmet teas and swanky gift sets. The shop's selection includes caffeinated and caffeine-free teas, sachets, gifts, and accessories. Sample a 30-serving tin of Luscious Lemon Meringue rooibos tea ($12) or Cocoa Cardamom Seduction black tea ($14), and ensure each sip provides a blissful mouth massage with a 35-count package of natural, unbleached tea filter bags ($6). Or, opt for a gracious Indulgence gift set ($25) and share the immune-system-boosting health benefits of tea with family and cellmates.
Talbott Teas culls its leaf collection from only fair-trade-certified tea growers, and its teas are free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. This vision of meticulously made teas comes from Talbott Teas' founder, who used to be a top hair colorist with a sense of style that landed him a spot styling on-location at The Oprah Winfrey Show.
