Like Olympic swimmers and Gremlins, tea leaves only reveal their true selves after being dunked in water. Unleash hidden strength with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of specialty teas and more at Tin Roof Teas in Cameron Village.
Tin Roof Teas indulges curious sippers with more than 250 premium teas from around the world. The pot-dwelling tea compendium boasts both loose-leaf compounds and prepared bag teas, representing varietal strains ranging from white to rooibos. The mulled-wine spice blend blends lemon peel, cloves, and cinnamon ($8.95 for 100 grams), while the tingling orange-peppermint rooibos ($8.32 for 100 grams) salves the twisted tongues of professional pepper tasters.
Decaffeinated teas, stripped of stimulants, allow steepers to enjoy unimpaired flavors and steady hands simultaneously. Tin Roof's consultants guide undeveloped palates through the smorgasbord, isolating individual blends to pair with foods and explaining the how-tos of tea preparation. Guests can grab a seat at the in-house tea bar to explore a range of varieties alongside chocolate truffles and other nibbles.
Tin Roof Teas
Sixty varieties of Tin Roof Teas’ collection of 250 bagged and loose-leaf teas have placed in the top three at the World Tea Expo. The somewhat overwhelming collection is made easily accessible at the Hinson family's store by its staff of tea consultants. Experts will share tidbits on the best preparation practices as well as suggest pairings for each leaf, such as Tin Roof's gourmet chocolate truffles. Their in-house tea bar allows for instant enjoyment of steaming or chilled beverages, and monthly tea classes impart a history lesson of tea-growing regions spanning from Japan to South Africa to the fertile grounds of the Boston Harbor.:m]]
