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 decorously with today's deal to The Pink House in Claremore. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of tea, sandwiches, and salads during lunch, served Monday–Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of tea, sandwiches, and salads during dinner, served Thursday–Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Within The Pink House's elegant environs, guests laze their way through teatime and beyond with a plethora of loose-leaf liquids served next to an extensive menu of house-made soups and sandwiches. With more than 50 varieties to choose from, pots of loose-leaf tea ($2.99), help sippers brush up on etiquette while extending the pinky finger, entire arm, or prehensile ponytail of their choosing. Sandwiches made from freshly baked bread include the Summer Garden, with layers of cucumbers, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, and a victory garden's worth of other vegetables ($7.49). Gobble a savory slice of the smoky ham and cheese quiche ($8.49) or indulge spice-seeking palates with the southwestern cobb salad—a toothsome mixture of romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, egg, and bacon tossed with Tex-Mex-inspired vegetables before getting drizzled and dressed with salsa ($7.49). Chocolate radars will ecstatically short-circuit when in close proximity to the shop's hot, gooey baked fudge, decadently topped with a dollop of whipped cream ($3.99 for whole).
