After a six-hour car ride, I’m finally in Boston to visit some family. They had a few teas in the house, most of which weren’t loose leaf, but this is one of the ones that was and I thought it sounded like a nice calming tea after a stressful day and it certainly was. I’m turning to white teas for moments of calm more and more recently, and this blend was very good for that purpose. The subtle flavor of the white peony blends perfectly with the light floral notes of the jasmine pearls and rosebuds (of which there is just the right amount to make it a light floral accent rather than an overpowering aroma). Very nice. I’ll have to see what kinds of tea shops I can find around Boston.

If you’re in the Harvard Square area, definitely check out Tealuxe. It’s a little tea cafe, and they sell the leaf as well. I really like their Harvard Square Earl Grey, the Golden Monkey and their Dragonwell. (Also if you’re in Harvard Square, check out Sweet – a fantastic cupcake bakery).

There’s also Virtuous Teas in Newton, which is a really cute store. They’ve got lots of vintage teacups. It’s really nice how they sell blending ingredients as well as teas – their Tropical Oolong and White Peony are great.

Enjoy Boston!

Thank you so much for the information. I’ll try to check them both out. :) I believe the place I’m in now is called Needham.

Depending where you are in Needham, I think Newton’s about 20 minutes. Not sure about HS :)
