Craving: Tea in Harvard Square

There is tea all over this city. We are, after all, in Boston. Parties revolving around tea have been happening since this city began.

But when we want a sampling of some of the best, we head to Harvard Square. First stop: Dado Tea. With a fun pastry assortment, you’re guaranteed to leave with your hands full. Dado has shelf after shelf of tea supplies for home, from pots and kettles to loose leaf bags and strainers. The perfect stop for a gift for a tea lover, even if that person is yourself!

Next: Tealuxe. Featuring perhaps the best selection around town, this tiny cafe is known for it’s huge assortment and daily iced treats. Serving bubble teas in the summer, there’s something for everyone - even hot chocolate for the tea haters among us.

Finally, and most unexpectedly: Karma Yoga Studio. While we know it’s an unconventional choice, this amazingly calm studio has a lovely cafe out front that serves some of the best iced peach rooibos we’ve ever had. Stop in on a hot summer afternoon for a delightful sampling of many soothing teas - and grab a relaxing yoga class while you’re there! Two good things under one roof is always fine by us.
