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

drank Blueberry White by Tealuxe
592 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!

Not sure what to think of this. It’s definitely got character, but it’s a very brusque and affronting tea. Opens up slowly to a wide range of flavors, all around the same category as the first steeping, which is the least pleasant, but still somewhat tasty.

Had a cup of this yesterday at my local Tealuxe. It was my first time trying genmaicha, so I don’t have a basis for comparison.

This presented as a nice, sort-of roasty flavor to a solid green tea base. The base was a little vegetal, but not too much (it was subtle enough to not be off-putting in the least) and was very smooth. The rice added a roasty note to the tea, creating almost a toasted or “cooked” flavor. It left a noticeable aftertaste of cooked green veggies. It was quite good overall.

drank Victorian Rose Tea by Tealuxe

Really rosy. I like it! The black is present but not overwhelming, and the rose is strong without being too perfumey. Although I am a fan of rose things. I might go longer (4-5 mins) next time to get a bit of a stronger flavor, but there’s no bitterness at all, which is lovely.

drank Throat Tender by Tealuxe
53 tasting notes

I still have that cold/virus/bronchitis thing that’s hit the nation, and for the past week I’ve been coughing like crazy. I had ordered TeaLuxe’s Throat Tender the week before, thinking I wouldn’t need it by the time it arrived, but here I am, still hacking away. I brewed a cup of this spicy, flavorful tea tonight in the hope that my tender throat would feel better.

Honestly, I’m not sure what I expected. I was curious about the ingredients- especially the slippery elm, which I thought it would make the tea velvety. I think Dragonwell green tea is more velvety than this. I had to add sweetener because the flavor was strong and a bit too bitter for me. With the sweetener it was palatable and, like chai, comforting in the way it warmed me up.

The tea is very pretty, as you can see in the photo, and the liquid is an attractive reddish-amber. I’m not sure this will help my throat, but taking this “cure” isn’t a chore by any means.

drank Monks Blend by Tealuxe
1 tasting notes

I’ve been trying to find a tea that matches a mis-labeled tea I got a few years ago. In my blending experiments it seemed that vanilla was a component, but there also seemed to be something almost fruity. Based on the description, I tried Monk’s blend. Definitely not this one. It’s not a bad tea, but it seems a bit too sharp — and I’m someone who leaves the bag in when I use teabags. I’m going to try using either a bit less tea, or steeping not quite as long, and see if that helps.

I’m not a big fan of vanilla in tea (or milk in tea, for that matter), but my wife really likes this. She tends not to sweeten black tea, so I think that’s key. I have found that this blends well with Yerba Maté though.

I was hoping for a little bit more of something. I’m not exactly sure what I think is missing, though. I think it’s just because I typically am not a big fan of vanilla tea, but had heard such great things about this one I figured if there’s ever going to be a vanilla tea for me, it must be the Copley version. Too bad for me, though I’m sure some of my vanilla tea drinking friends will like it.

When it gets hot, I start craving this cup. So here we go!

It feels like summer out there, so I’m having a summer tea! The fruit in the background is just what I needed this morning, and the tea has the kick I was hoping for…. here’s hoping this tea set the day in motion in a good way!

And I found the way to enjoy this!! Now that it’s starting to feel a bit like spring, I figured I’d give this tea another go. And it’s really good!! I think that the fruit qualities stand on their own in this tea, yet the drink still maintains the tea-quality we all love. This is good when sitting in my office, just knowing it’s spring outside, and I imagine it’ll be really nice when sitting on the porch this summer.

I’m having a cup right now, and don’t really love it or hate it. It’s just a basic black fruity tea. I heard it was a favorite of Princess Diana, so apparently my tea taste is different. I think I’d probably like it more in the summer.

If it was a fave of Princess Diana – I would give it at least a few points teeehee (but I don’t blame you for not rating it!) Might have to pick it up if I ever get the chance…just for kicks…

I just wasn’t sure the exact number I’d give it, so I opted to leave that field blank. :) If you want a sample, LMK and I’ll see if I can send you some!

drank Peachy White by Tealuxe

A very tasty tea- this is almost like a grown-up peach-flavored tea. It has a sophisticated peach flavoring that integrates very well with the black tea base. This is my favorite peach-flavored tea, and I regularly repurchase it.
