New tea place on Newbury St, Boston

I remember reading about a new tea place that lets you create your own blends. Does anyone know the name?

      Tealux has been closed for a while. Don't know why.

        The folks at the Harvard Sq. Branch said they were just closed for renovations and it was taking a bit longer than expected.

    2. Is that Whittard's of Chelsea?

      1. Don't recall the name, but there is a tea shop upstairs between Berkeley and Clarendon. It's over the little basement Italian cafe. They have the tea loose in jars, so would think you could create your own blends.

          The coffee shop is L'Aroma Cafe and the tea store is on the second level of the building and is visible from the street if you look up. I don't know what it's called but it's not Whittard's of Chelsea, which is on the opposite side of the street a block or two closer to Mass. Ave.

            I just finished an article on tea in the neighborhood! The place above L'Aroma is Timeless Teas and is owned by the same family.


        2. It is Whittard's of Chelsea. Located at 170 Newbury St. Definitely has blend your own tea.
