Groupon’s never seem to be what they appear. We ordered one under the assumption that we could use it at any of the Tea Place’s three locations. Of course, they only tell you after you buy the Groupon that it’s valid for only one location! Ridiculous. Luckily, I called ahead and found out we could only use it at their newest location, on the west end in Callingwood. It also worked out that my friend had the day off and was nice enough to swing by and bring the food back for us to try.
Lunch combo special – soup, sandwich and bubble tea ($10.90)
Two daily soups to choose from – I went with the vegetarian and for the sandwich, I went with the chicken ranch panini. Ciabatta bun with smoked chicken, swiss cheese, tomatoes, onion, green peppers and ranch. For the bubble tea, I opted for the mango bango with mango pieces – it was pretty tasty. Mango, banana and coconut all mixed together.
With the Groupon, it was about half price for each of us. Everything was decent but I wouldn’t go out of my way to grab food from here. The BBT is better than average though.
