Lifting one's pinky finger while sipping tea conveys good manners and pokes the eyes of crows attempting to scavenge loose leaves. Practice full extension of the littlest phalange with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get high tea for two at The Tea Party Cafe (a $27.10 value).
The expert steepers at The Tea Party Cafe delight patrons with a high-tea service comprising soul-warming sips of more than 100 types of loose-leaf teas and sweet and savoury treats. The delectables arrive artfully arranged on a two-tiered platter, and diners receive personal supplies of rooibos, black, herbal, or green tea, so they need not argue over flavours or cleave teapots in half. In the colourful dining room, each tea-taker nibbles on a quartet of mini vegetarian sandwiches, and four sugar-laced pastries per person deftly quell the incessant braying of sweet teeth.
