Tealuxe isn’t just a tea bar, however. It’s also a tea shop, selling everything from loose-leaf tea by the gram to teapots and infuser baskets. The 25-gram minimum purchase for each tea yields 10 to 12 cups of the infused beverage. Customers, who often come regularly from as far away as New York City, like to stock up on their favorite flavors, such as Crème de la Earl Grey, Royal Coconut Oolong Pouchong, and Golden Monkey, to name a few. Tealuxe’s full line of classic blends and flavors, as well as many accoutrements, are available through its website, tealuxe.com, or by calling 888-TEALUXE (832-5893).
