Lecturing your dachshund nonstop on the pros and cons of converting your front yard into a Pat Sajak–themed mini-golf course is bound to make you thirsty after a while. Today's Groupon offers the superb moistener for dry throats and mouths: for $10, you get $20 worth of tea and more from Tiesta Tea.
Inspired by traditional Czech tea houses, Tiesta Tea offers five lines of teas categorized by their effects on the body rather than by their type or color, and each line has a wide variety of flavors ($5.99–$17). The Energizer blends give morning drinkers a boost sans coffee-infused dragon breath, and include the sweet-and-spicy chai love ($12) and the smoky kokomate, an earthy herbal mate with a chocolaty finish. Slenderizer blends help curb appetites and act as tasty, low-calorie alternatives to diet colas and sugary sports drinks. Cups of the lemongrassy summer solstice ($10) and the jolly-green kiwi ($10) will help keep nicknames such as "Fatty McGee" strictly ironic. The Energizer, Slenderizer, Forever Young, Immunity, and Relaxer teas come in 4-ounce bags, which make approximately 25 16-ounce cups. Order tea online with today’s deal and peruse tea-drinking accessories such as tea baskets ($10).
