drank Creme de la Earl Grey by Tealuxe
8 tasting notes

Definitely my all time favorite “cozy” tea as well as cream earl grey tea. The flavor is smooth and creamy (I pick up a lot of vanilla overtones). I like to drink it with some milk and sugar. I’m not a huge Earl Grey fan so I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much I enjoyed it. I will be very sad when my tin runs out as Tealuxe does not have a great refill discount.

Flavors: Bergamot, Creamy, Vanilla

drank Ti Quan Yin by Tealuxe
1 tasting notes

Not the most complex TGY, but I still get it every trip I take to Boston. Lightly toasted to bring out a nutty profile on top of its characteristic florals. Starts as a thick, flowery caramel liquor with a mildly astringent flavor that builds in the mouth and throat. Subsequent steepings reveal high floral notes, eventually settling into toasty astringincey. Brewed gong fu style (3tsp in a 200ml pot), lasts through 5+ steepings (not including the rinse).

Flavors: Caramel, Floral, Nutty

Pass the Stash TTB #16

I approached this with some trepidation since mango is one of those fruits that is hard to replicate in tea. But this one does a fair job of it. It’s probably the closest to fresh mango I’ve found in tea. It’s lovely.

But I don’t think I’m quite in the mood for it. The weather turned last night and I had to drag the silk comforter out of storage so I didn’t freeze while sleeping. My palate wants hearty and spicy, the cloyingly sweet of toffee instead of the light sweetness of tropical fruit.

It is still a fantastic tea. I just wish I had found it a few months earlier.

If you miss DAVIDsTEA’s “Coffee Cake” from last winter, this is basically the same tea!

This is pretty good in terms of dessert tea. The “burnt sugar” aspect of the creme brulee is strong in the after taste; if you’re planning on doing a tasting event, you’re going to want a palate cleanser for this one (and you might want it in general).

I drank this as a bubble tea – it was surprisingly good iced, for a caramel based tea. Over all, probably better hot.

Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Caramel, Coffee, Toffee

drank Vanilla Green by Tealuxe

From Another TTB?!?! round 2

A very nice vanilla green. It probably could have taken more steeps, but I simply didn’t feel like it. This tea is nice, simple, and not particularly a stand out in the crowd nowadays. I could see this as a daily drinker. I was busy doing cleaning, so this was nice to sip on, the flavor retains nicely as it cools. Where did the day go though??

1/3 tsp in 4oz @ 185, 1.5min
note: the leaf texture is add, very flat narrow leaves, stiff as if they had been flash fried. It was hard to measure out.

I have a vanilla bean green that I just love. It is one I drink a lot of days, just because it’s nice to sip on, but doesn’t need focus or time. I’m almost out and the place I got it from isn’t selling online right now. :(

drank Vanilla Green by Tealuxe

TTB 3: I’m really hesitant with greens. I’m still not great at steeping them, and I’ve had some really horrible flavors because of that. Something like this tea could change my mind though! The green tea, vegetabley taste is here, but not overwhelmingly. The vanilla is soft and creamy, and almost a marshmallow flavor, mixing well with the green. I’m surprised that I’m only the second review for this!

drank Pear & Green Tea by Tealuxe
591 tasting notes

I met up with a friend in Cambridge today, so I used it as an excuse to stop by Tealuxe! Today, I tried iced pear & green tea with bubbles. First off, the tea was just okay. I could definitely taste the pear flavor and a light green tea. However, the tea somehow came off perfume-y and weak at the same time. The bubbles were sweet and chewy, but that didn’t make up for the weak tea itself. I’m finding that with the fruity teas at Tealuxe, they tend to be a bit on the perfume-y side, so I need to be more selective when I go back!

Awesome fruit punch type aroma! It’s irresistible. No sugar needed for this as it is floral and slightly sweet. One of my favourite flavoured black teas.

drank Victorian Rose Tea by Tealuxe
117 tasting notes

I stopped by TeaLuxe because I was in the area, and got a few flavored teas. I’ve been drinking this one a lot (occasionally mixed with the creme brulee). It’s a good, simple rose tea. It’s not subtle, but it doesn’t have to be, and it’s pretty tasty.

I’ve realized I’ve been drinking a lot of simple flavored black teas lately. I have a whole bunch of oolong samples to try, but I keep waiting for a day when I have more… mental clarity, instead of one when I’m feeling foggy and overworked. As a result, I’ve mostly been drinking teas that don’t require very much effort. Which, y’know, is okay I guess. But maybe I should drink my oolongs anyway.

Strong floral aroma, rich almost oily bergamot flavor. Less traditional earl grey flavor than I expected, more flower.

If you enjoy a good Earl Grey tea, try this. I’m quite sure this is the best Earl Grey I’ve had.

A delicious flavored Ceylon from Tealuxe. Another hit for me. 4 minutes just under boiling and it wafts caramel and richness. Creme de la Earl Grey from them has the same rich cream smell, which I’m in love with. The caramel blends well with the Ceylon base. It’s delicious as it cools as well. Any bitterness that may seep during cooling isn’t unpleasant with the rich cream notes. I would order this again.

I liked this tea a lot the first time. I reserved “love” for something I would come back to again and again . With my small sample, I couldn’t, but I can say all three times, this was smooth and delicious.

Absolute heaven in a cup. I’m big on Jasmine Teas, and this has been the best I’ve had so far. As the tea cooled while I was drinking it, the Jasmine flavor became even more pronounced. A definite plus in my book.

An adequate English Breakfast, but to me, not very potent. It tasted nice, but really didn’t wow me.

drank Blueberry White by Tealuxe
591 tasting notes

My first trip to Tealuxe in Harvard Square! I asked the guy working to recommend a good low caffeine tea (it was already late afternoon), and this was one of the ones he showed me. When I smelled the dry leaf, it smelled like sweet blueberries, almost verging on a candy-like smell but not quite. The blueberry smell was still strong after steeping, but not as strong in flavor. Maybe it’s because I’ve been drinking a lot of Davids Tea lately. Anyway, the blueberry flavor was definitely there and tasted more natural than the smell. The white tea also shone through with the grassy, vegetal taste. I’m not always a fan of the grassy taste, so this rating doesn’t quite make it to 80, but it is a pretty good tea nonetheless. Next time I go to Tealuxe, I’m going to make sure I have enough time to really poke my nose into all the teas I can. Plus, they have a whole wall full of cute teaware, too!
