Tea was discovered in ancient China when a leaf blew in the window and landed in the emperor's bath, which he was slurping through a straw. Sip leaves steeped decorously with today's deal: for $9, you get full tea service for one person at The Tea Parlor in Liberty Township, an $18 value. "Full tea" is the parlor's all-inclusive tea-party package, including the featured tea of the month, fresh fruit, cheese, crackers, finger sandwiches, desserts, and more.
When whipping up tasty teas and edible accompaniments, The Tea Parlor calls on the finest local ingredients available, ensuring the beverage's boasted health benefits don't get lost like a baby hedgehog in a ball pit. The full tea menu for the month of May starts with freshly steeped Garden Rose tea, impeccably paired with shortbread, seasonal fruit, and assorted finger sandwiches filled with cucumbers, carrots, cheese, turkey, and ham salad with orange marmalade. Savory asparagus is balanced with mixed-berry crumble cake, hazelnut truffle, and strawberry bread to satisfy sweet-seeking incisors. The featured menu items change monthly, so check back periodically to update your cravings accordingly.
Loosen your leaves during an afternoon in The Tea Parlor's tranquil tearoom, which has free WiFi. Spend some quality time focusing deeply on your qi and forgetting about your problematic investment in that land-ski company. Your formal afternoon tea service can be scheduled at The Tea Parlor on Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday between the hours of noon and 5 p.m. Call ahead to make a reservation.
