Free Tea Today 12-4 @ Oren’s Locations

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

At some point I made a conscious effort to not nurture a coffee/tea drinking habit because of the sheer economics behind having to buy your daily fix. Plus, it’s like oysters. If you don’t really like them, don’t eat them. But, most of my friends were buying sugary lattes that didn’t even have a bitter hint of coffee bean for the jolt.  Co-workers said they didn’t feel normal without it. “I can’t start my day without it”. Dunkin Donuts’ slogan “America Runs On Dunkin Donuts” just pissed me off, because it is not talking about our nation jogging on the caloric energy of their foodstuffs, but our reliance on their joe.

Well, thanks to the sharp eyes at FreeNYC, none of this matters today if you are a tea drinker because a coffee place (Oren’s Daily Roast) is celebrating its anniversary with a tea place (Mighty Leaf Tea Co.) by giving away free, 12 oz. teas from 12-4.  What a boring baby, although they do sound exotic. If only they could partner with a strumpet company. Or is it strudel? Make it both and I’m there.

Offerings: Organic Breakfast, Tropical Green Tea, and Organic African Nectar.
