Tea drinking crosses cultural boundaries, fitting into proper society, New Age living, and the social lives of stuffed animals. Stock up for teatime with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of tea from The Social Tea House.
The Social Tea House imports and distributes top-notch teas from around the globe to perk up boring pots of water. Blends such as Belgian chocolate black tea ($19.99/3.5 oz.) and Carnival, a yerba mate sprinkled with caramel, marigold, and Spanish safflower petals ($16.99/3.5 oz.), pique sweet-leaning palates, while green tea mango ($15.99/3.5 oz.) steeps the essence of exotic fruit in midday cups and midnight puddle baths. Many of The Social Tea House’s varieties come from a specific region, such as the China chai ($19.99/3.5 oz.), which unites chai’s traditional spices of cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon with a base of Zhen Mei green tea and a hint of almond. Though not necessarily included in today’s Groupon, many of The Social Tea House's sales benefit charities such as Project STEM, a trust funding children’s education in math and science.
Please note that most orders take four business days to process, though if something is out of stock, it may take up to two weeks.
The Social Tea House
Throughout history, tea has stood as a symbol of goodwill between friends, strangers, and even warring nations. The Social Tea House is steeped in that culture. An online retailer of super-grade and high-grade loose-leaf teas, The Social Tea House gathers brews from throughout Japan, India, and China. Its customers range from casual sippers to global dignitaries—including foreign ambassadors, to whom the company ships its teas as gifts in place of the traditional American gift of boxes of hot dogs. But that generosity isn't limited to an international scale: The Social Tea House also helps various local organizations by designating proceeds from its line of "SocialChariteas."
