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 more decorously with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of tea, sandwiches, pastries, and more at Teapot in Bellmore.
Teapot takes its inspiration from the Victorian tearooms of old, where tea was equal parts an excuse to nosh mouthwatering sweets and a social engagement that eventually led to common-law marriages. Get into English character with a scone with butter or preserves ($4.50) to complement a hot, steaming pot of Earl Grey or Darjeeling ($6.95). Teapot's steepable leaf selection has more than 30 varieties of white, black, oolong, rooibos, herbal, and green goodness. While a bountiful brew dances upon your tongue, nibble bites of a specialty sandwich such as the Elizabeth, a cucumber and herb-cream sandwich on a toasted baguette, or the William—white cheddar, green apple, and herb mayonnaise on a croissant ($7.95 each). Pastries and salads are also on the menu.
Beyond being a fully relaxing, military-grade sedative, tea is said to have numerous medicinal benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and arthritis. Loosen your leaves during an afternoon in Teapot's tranquil tearoom, and spend some quality time focusing deeply on your qi and forgetting about the Bilderberg Group.
