Raiding local trees and throwing their leaves in boiling water cuts down on aphid infestations, but it won't make a good cup of tea. Enjoy leaf-water made from ingestion-appropriate plants with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cafe fare, tea, and gifts at Through the Looking Glass in Shelbyville.

Recently mentioned in the Wall Street Journal, Through the Looking Glass caters to the tea crowd with a blend of whole leaf teas, tea accessories, and gifts. Brew sippers can combat lip freeze by slurping green teas, black teas, oolong teas, white teas, tea blends, and herbal tisane. Menu offerings let lunchers languish over elegant treats including the croissant with brie or chocolate ($3.50), the red knight chili ($6.50), and the Cheshire cheese plate, a pairing of two cheeses such as brie, rosemary asiago, lacy swiss, bavarian boy blue, and Babybel resting on a tuffet of water crackers and fruit ($6.50).

After taking in a few lungfuls of dried-leaf drink, warmed esophagussi can browse for a handmade, fair trade, or locally produced gift. Whether staying for the sips or the shopping, entertained eaters can also experience Through the Looking Glass's special events, including art openings, live music performances, and the Shakespeare Enthusiasts Group.

The very best mint ice tea! Small menu, but some healthy choices.

This place understands how to make tea. The atmosphere is whimsical. the service was great and the food was good. Would like it if you were closer to Louisville.

The food was delicious. The waitresses were so pleasant and I wonder why in the world they closed down. I still have a groupon to there.
