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 more decorously with this Groupon.

The Tea Room
Though coffee is good for jumpstarting a morning, it pales in comparison to the ritual surrounding afternoon tea. The Tea Room carries on this cherished English tradition, offering four levels of tea service, a selection of fair-trade organic teas, and a slew of finger foods for guests to enjoy. The simplest option is the Queen's Tea, during which you can nibble on treats while sipping selections from the house’s 50 signature blends. For a more decadent experience, the top-tier Royal Tea includes finger sandwiches, plates of salad, rows of glistening pastries, fruit, chocolate, and champagne. Outside the tearoom, guests can browse British paraphernalia at the gift shop or take home their favorite variety of tea without having to reverse-engineer flavors from stains left on lapels.
