Jeremiah and I discovered Tealuxe by mistake recently, while strolling around the Harvard Square area. Their banners advertising 7 kinds of chai and more than 80 tea varieties (!) caught our eye (our eyes?), so we decided to check it out. And oh my, I am in love. (We went back this weekend for another visit, while checking out the Head of the Charles regatta – and it’s just as good the second time around.)
Behind the counter are dozens of bins full of teas:
And they have loads of wonderful tea accessories for sale (and oh, how I love that clock!):
On both of my visits I’ve had “chai-der,” which is – yes – apple cider combined with chai. Delicious – spicy and warm and perfectly autumnal.
I wish it were closer to Quincy; I’d visit more often. But we can go back, of course, and bring tea-loving friends when they come visit. I agree with the quote from Sir Arthur someone-or-other painted on the back wall (I didn’t get a good photo): “Where there is tea, there is hope.”
