Drinking tea is said to ease stress, heighten alertness, and cause an intolerable tea itch for more tea. Loosen your leaves at The Path of Tea, a legendary teashop known for its sniffing bar where you open tea tins and smell the blends before you buy. This Groupon gets you $10 worth of flavorful leaves for $5.
Brewing a good cup of tea is an art form, and The Path of Tea has the best leaf boilers in Houston. This year, it was voted the best teahouse on Click2Houston.com. The Path of Tea stocks more than 145 types of white, green, oolong, and black teas with flavors such as passion fruit rooibus, special matcha, and kama sutra chai. All of its teas are organic. Unlike fruits and vegetables, tea leaves are never washed, so anything sprayed on tea plants (silly string, non-toxic paints, chocolate syrup, etc.) ultimately ends up in your cup.
The Path of Tea is a soothing, minimally decorated cafe with ink drawings on the walls and origami on display. It serves teas in sparkling clear pots on tea stands; it’s the perfect spot to zen with pals. Use your Groupon and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $100 tea set.
The Path of Tea has a perfect five-star rating on Yelp and Citysearch: > * I have been addicTEAD ever since I set foot in the place over a year ago! It is a great place to relax, read, have a date, meet up with an old friend, play a game or even get a psychic reading!… The tea is purely MAGICAL! – thewholeenchilada, Citysearch > * It was seriously swoon-worthy and prepared correctly to boot… Lovely ambiance, very calming Japanese decor. Beautiful collection of teapots for sale, and even cupcakes by the counter! I wish this shop were around the corner from my house. – Elizabeth M., Yelp > * If you enjoy tea, then Path of Tea is for you! It will most likely take you at least 5, maybe 10 or more minutes to decide which tea you want because there is such a large selection with colorful names such as “Sacred Monk’s Blend”. – Tiffany P., Yelp

The Path of Tea
The Path of Tea—crowned one of the top six tea houses by CityVoter's Houston A-List in 2013—greatly soothes the senses. One A-List voter said that, "Walking into this shop you get an immediate sense of serenity, suddenly your body just goes 'ahhhhh.'" And that's not even taking into account the tranquillity that comes from sipping a cup of tea from its stock of more than 150 certified-organic and fair-trade teas.
To help patrons find a favorite brew, the tea house offers tea tastings twice a month. During these one-hour sessions, tasters learn the fundamentals of tea infusion and consumption, and sample five different teas. The tasting also discusses how different cultures use it in ceremonies or to quickly de-ice a car windshield.
