During negotiations to establish boundaries for humanity's drinks of choice, coffee got mornings, tea got afternoons, and buttermilk got the shaft. Take a break from debate with today's Groupon to Téance Fine Teas in Berkeley. Choose between the following options:
- For $22, you get a two-flight tea tasting per person for two (a $20 value) and $15 per person to spend on teas (a $50 value).
- For $42, you get a two-flight tea tasting per person for four (a $40 value) and $15 per person to spend on teas (a $100 total value).
Seated within the bright, modern teashop Téance, visitors sprinkle taste buds with a flight of two high-quality teas per person. Selected by dried-leaf experts, the flight pits two warm beverages against one another, challenging discerning palates to suss out the subtleties between caffeinated black teas, delicate white teas and earthy, sweet green teas. Pairs or quartets belly up to the tea-sampling bar and bask in the rich flavors of the farm-direct teas, which are gracefully poured by expert baristas in traditional tea ware and classic tea steins. After bathing taste buds, sippers can peruse more than 65 varieties of seasonal teas, such as the light and chestnutty dafang green tea ($14) or a ceylon orange pekoe tea ($10), which pairs well with candy necklaces.
