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 $6, you get $12 worth of tea, sweets, and homemade fare at Iris & Ivory Tea House & Cafe in Cheswick.
The made-from-scratch fare of Iris & Ivory plays partner to the melange of more than 40 loose-leaf and bagged tea options that define this quaint Britishstyle tearoom. The 16-ounce teapot ($2) houses the drinker's choice of loose-leaf teas, with the option of adding two crumpets, served toasted with a side of jam, butter, and a pardon for poor fake British accents ($4.25).
The lunch menu bursts with fresh bites, from the cranberry chicken salad, crowning a bed of spring greens ($7.75), to the roasted-vegetable sandwich, awash with roasted eggplant, portobello, squash, onions, and sweet red peppers fighting for dominance on a wheat-bun battlefield ($7). Tiny treats make fussy sweet teeth swoon with decadent flavor bursts such as the chocolate mousse, turtle sundae, and the tiramisu (all $1.50).
Table legs put their body-building pasts to use with the heavier dinner fare available on Thursday and Friday nights, serving stomach-conquering fare such as the fillet medallions with mushroom ($18.95) and the chicken marsala ($16.95). The tearoom's elegant atmosphere soothes wearied souls, letting guests unwind with sumptuous teas, the permission to cry, or their own wine, all with no corking fee.
