Good Tea, Poor Service, Erratic Wi-Fi.
The tea is good, but the service sucks. The tweens that work there will keep you waiting to order while having a conversation with another customer who 'drops in' without ordering anything.
Moreover, the free Wi-Fi Tealuxe prominently advertises consistently drops out for hours at a time, yet the employees are unwilling to post a sign to that effect on the door.
I like the concept of Tealuxe, but there's a reason no one's ever in there. It just ain't worth it, folks.
Providence's premier tea cafe serves plenty of rare, hard-to-find varieties.. In Short Those looking for an alternative to coffee don't have to look hard to find this palace of tea, as it enjoys a high-profile location on Thayer Street. The tea bar is staffed by experts familiar with the more than 100 varieties on offer. The main draw is the impressive tea selection: simple breakfast teas, rare green teas from Japan, unusual herbal varieties (papaya and pineapple), and so on.
