Review: Tealux Cafe Ballwin

Media by Annabelle Miller
Tealux offers a variety of milk and fruit teas, and I ordered the lime mojito and strawberry milk tea. Both were sweet and flavorful, and I would recommend Tealux as an after school treat.

Having opened a year ago in Ballwin, Tealux offers a traditional milk tea menu, an assortment of fruit teas and authentic Vietnamese “street food.”

The fruit teas have many flavor combinations with mango, strawberry, blueberry, peach, lime and pineapple being the most popular. The milk teas also have several different flavors including brown sugar, strawberry, matcha and jasmine. A small milk tea costs $6.75, and a fruit tea costs $6. 

I ordered a lime mojito and a strawberry milk tea. The drinks came out quickly and were in cute cups with bear-ear tops, which I especially liked. The lime mojito cup was green and metallic with white drawings to look like frost and the milk tea cup was clear.

The lime mojito is a fruit tea with a mix of mint and lime flavors, and it was my favorite of the two. The flavors mixed well together and were sweet and refreshing. 

Along with drinks, Tealux offers mochi ice cream, 12 flavors of macarons and Vietnamese street food. (Media by Annabelle Miller)

The strawberry milk tea was also delicious. The strawberry flavor was natural tasting and very sweet. The milk tea was thick and foamy and had tasty boba pearls. The boba is freshly made in the café every day.

Both drinks were cold and perfect for a hot day. 

Not only are there a lot of tea choices, but the café offers many sweet and savory foods as well. Tealux serves sandwiches, Vietnamese street food, mochi ice cream and 12 flavors of macarons. 

However, the hot food takes a while to be made. I tried to order rice paper rolls, but the cashier said it would be a 30-minute wait. I had to skip the hot food due to time constraints, but I intend to go back and try it.

The Tealux café area is not cramped and has several tables to sit and enjoy tea. The space is decorated with flowers and has a clean, semi-modern aesthetic. It has a metallic wall with a decal resembling the Arch, perfect for taking photos with your drink. 

Overall, I recommend Tealux to any milk or fruit tea connoisseur. It’s a great place for people new to milk tea as well; the menu is easy to read and has enough options to find something for everyone.
