Colonists asserted their independence at the Boston Tea Party by lulling British officers to sleep with cups of chamomile, which left them defenseless against marker mustaches. Harness the revolutionary power of tea with today's Groupon to Texas Tea Room & Cafe in Friendswood. Texas Tea Room & Cafe is open every day for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get $12 worth of light lunch fare and tea.
- For $35, you get a catered sandwich platter (a $54.95 value) and a choice of a pan of signature banana pudding (a $19.95 value) or a whole Dang Good chocolate cake (a $15.95 value; up to a $74.90 total value).
Texas Tea Room & Cafe wrangles in parched palates by prepping a menu of homemade soups, sandwiches, and salads made from fresh, hand-selected ingredients. Midday munchers can dunk spoons into the creamy fathoms of the Bluebonnet baked potato soup that floods mouth caves with bacon and shredded cheese ($3.95 for a cup; $5.95 for a bowl) or spelunk through the flaky crust of a Rustic Tea Room tart to uncover a trove of treasures including egg custard, salsa verde, and doubloon-shaped poblano peppers ($7.95). Unwearying waiters deliver bundled grains to tables, such as the Texas club sandwich forged from layered Boar's Head black forest ham and smoked turkey tucked inside a fresh locally baked roll ($7.95). Hot-tea service ($2.95) is available daily for all lounging guests, who are also free to pair up with sweeter snacks, including scrumptious Strawberry Patch bread ($2.95 for three slices).
Alternatively, esurient guests can order a takeout spread of catered comestibles from Texas Tea Room & Cafe to bolster at-home merrymaking or supply ammunition for fancy food fights. A platter of 24 sampler sandwiches served on silver-dollar rolls feeds 8–12 individual humans. Nibble daintily through an array of bread-swathed savories such as a Kicked-Up pimento cheese sandwich with pickled jalapeños or a Tumbleweed tuna-salad sandwich that twitterpates taste buds as it rolls into mouths to the sound of a mournful harmonica solo. As a dulcet post-prandial epilogue, eaters can delve into the velvety depths of a pan of signature banana pudding or serenade sweet teeth with decadent bites of the Dang Good chocolate cake.
