A majority of teas are culled from leaves, flowers, and the 20th letter of the alphabet, by far the most aromatic and steepable character. Drink in a blend of delectable elements with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of loose-leaf tea, sweets, and gifts at TeBella Tea Company in the Davis Islands neighborhood.
The newly inaugurated emporium of earthy beverages boasts a dizzying plethora of loose-leaf teas plucked from various global locales, along with goodies and tea accouterments. Eighty-five tea varieties from herbal to oolong, green to white, rooibos, black, and dessert teas are all sold by the ounce, audibly begging to be steeped. The mint julep blend ($12 for 2 oz.) is packed with rose petals, lavender, and peppermint, an ideal accompaniment to the lively rocking-horse races on your front lawn. Pick a grove's worth of Florida orange blossom tea ($7 for 2 oz.), an organic medley of Sunshine State orbs, tangerine, lime, and osthmanthus flowers. When stewed with the smart tea steeper ($19.95), the caffeine-free carrot cake blend ($6 for 2 oz.) packs a sipable dessert punch, superior to that of liquefied Fig Newtons. Keep drinks sweetened with the orange blossom artisanal honey ($14.95), crafted by citrus-loving Georgian bees.
